To the Editor:

JoAnn Fitzpatrick's column on religious resistance to the Obama contraceptive mandate was a cacophony of inaccuracies, invidious stereotypes, spleen venting complaints, and simmering resentments (COMPLETE DISCONNECT, February 18-19, 2012).

In her rancor towards the Catholic Church over moral issues --- so typical of the bourgeois Catholics of the 1960's --- Fitzpatrick dismisses the significant threat to religious liberty contained in the President's decision to require contraceptive, abortifacient, and sterilization coverage in health insurance plans.

In an unprecedented expansion of state power, the federal government --- by an executive branch regulation --- will coerce Catholic employers into subsidizing, through their insurance carriers, practices abhorrent to their consciences. That is why Baptists, Evangelicals, Lutherans, Eastern Orthodox Christians, and Jews, have joined Catholics in opposing this bureaucratic aggression against the First Amendment.
