When a socialist Government wants to take over they always go after religious rights first, then after that all rights fall one at a time.

From the final insert put into our church bulletin. www.ilcatholic.org

This year, our own federal government, through the Department of Health and Human Services, mandated a new and narrow
definition of “religious employer.” This unprecedented action could force the punishment or even closure of faith-based soup
kitchens, schools and hospitals because these institutions would not fit under the federal government’s definition of “religious.” It is
an ominous sign when the federal government issues the edict that Catholic Charities and other religious employers are not
religious. The mandate is both illegal and unjust, and constitutes an unprecedented affront to religious liberty. 1

As we did in the Fortnight for Freedom, we continue to ask the laity to pray and be active in opposing this mandate that we feel is a violation of the
First Amendment of the United States Constitution as well as other federal laws.

As our fellow bishops have written: “Religious liberty is not only about our ability to go to Mass on Sunday or pray the Rosary at
home. It is about whether we can make our contribution to the common good of all Americans. Can we do the good works our faith
calls us to do, without having to compromise that very same faith?...What is at stake is whether America will continue to have a free,
creative, and robust civil society—or whether the state alone will determine who gets to contribute to the common good, and how
they get to do it.” 2

A law that prohibits Catholics from living the Gospel publicly is a law that prohibits Catholics from living the Gospel faithfully. And so
we join our brother bishops in calling upon “all the energies the Catholic community can muster” to oppose this threat to religious
liberty.

It is important to remember that religious liberty is not a Catholic issue. It is not a Christian or Jewish or Muslim issue. It is an
American issue. Fundamentally, it is a matter of social justice; for when religious liberty is endangered, the good of society itself is
diminished.

As bishops, we seek to bring the light of the Gospel to our flocks, but the work of politics and deciding who will represent us in this
representative democracy is up to committed and courageous lay Catholics. We urge you to be both engaged and articulate in
insisting that as Catholics and as Americans that we do not have to choose between being either a Catholic or an American. There is
an urgent need for the lay faithful, in cooperation with those of other faiths or none, to impress upon our elected representatives
the vital importance of religious liberty for a free society.

On November 6, we have an opportunity—and an obligation—to do just that.

Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, patroness of this nation, may God bless us all and continue to bless the United States
of America.
