Letter: Religious freedom is in no danger

Kathryn Lopez’s June 18 commentary in The Signal regarding the Catholic bishops’ fight against birth control deserves a response. I can only characterize the bishops’ bizarre focus on such a peripheral issue as whether their employees can access contraceptives through their health insurance as totally absurd.

With tens of millions of people unemployed, American families going hungry and even homeless; our democratic institutions being eroded month-by-month thanks to the Citizens United court ruling; corporations and the mega-rich basically buying our politicians; and wars around the globe taking the lives of countless innocent people, the Catholic Church’s exclusive club of old men has decided to focus on birth control and contraceptives as the chief moral issues of our time?

American’s religious freedom is the one thing NOT in danger; pretty much everything else IS. The Catholic bishops ought to reassess their unfortunate stance and take on the real moral issues we face instead.
