Statement on the recent ruling from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

 

Bishop Christopher J. Coyne
Bishop of Indianapolis

February 06, 2012

   
  My friends, the recent ruling from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is one that challenges the rights of all people of faith to live their lives according to the beliefs and dictates of that faith.

I stand with my brother bishops across the United States as absolutely opposed to this mandate.

Please know that I treat this matter with the utmost seriousness. My perception is that we are in this for the long-haul and our attention needs to be focused on the spring presidential primary and the November presidential election.

I also want to consult with the clergy and lay leaders of the Archdiocese as to how we best educate and inform our people about this matter.

The Archdiocese has already posted the statement of the USCCB and Cardinal-designate Dolan regarding this matter on the website.

In the meantime, I draw your attention to this statement of the Indiana Catholic Conference. Each statement mirrors my own thoughts. Please continue to pray for our people and our country. May God bless you all and those you love.

+Bishop Christopher J. Coyne
Apostolic Administrator
Archdiocese of Indianapolis
