CatholicVote in USA Today


We’re fighting on every front for religious freedom.

Our legal team is working overtime on the briefs needed to take our lawsuit challenging the HHS Mandate to the Supreme Court.

This morning we released an editorial authored by John Kennedy — the Catholic businessman suing Kathleen Sebelius with help from the CV Legal Defense Fund.

You can read the editorial here.

Mr. Kennedy explained in his own words what this legal fight was all about. In his guest opinion piece published today on, Kennedy writes:

All of the options that the mandate allows…violate our faith. It does not have to be this way. Our case will not end at the Court of Appeals as we intend to ask the Supreme Court to review our case.

For the sake of everyone in this country who wants the freedom to practice their faith in all aspects of their lives, I hope the Supreme Court hears the case. Otherwise it seems that the free exercise of religion will be reduced to whatever fits within the four walls of a church.

    The government may be providing healthcare, it is in the end the STATE’S healthcare.

    Is this a class action lawsuit? If so, I would like to join. My husband is laid off for more that a year and I could only find part time work (30 hrs) after being laid off for a year also.. We do NOT want Unaffordable Care because it funds abortion, contraception … basically it runs contrary to our religious (Catholic) beliefs. We would like to have health insurance but can NOT afford it! We have not been able to afford health care for a year. ( it was almost $1200 per month for a family of 3 in Sept. 2012) The sequestration cut unemployment by 10% and we are now living hand to mouth. Unemployment runs out in Dec. and my husband needs knee surgery.

      Mary, if you have a family income of less than $30k a year, your health care would be free with no deductible. Your husband would get that needed surgery. More people in America will live, health care for those who can’t afford it is a Christian value. I know we can’t all like every aspect of every law, but this will save lives, we have the lowest birth rate (those who live after being born) than any other indistrialized nation.

        And in the process the country will be bankrupt. We cannot afford this abominable unhealthcare act. It is a horrid bill. And has proven to be a fiasco! NO TO OBAMACARE –

        Sounds like an abortionist who values government coercion over charity. Your name “A. Friend” sounds like a disguise than an honest statement. R
