    I heard that Catholic Money was behind th Religous Freedom Act in Indiana and other states, do you know if this is true? How can we fight this building up of discrimination by Catholic Hierarcy which discriminates against women and LGBT community and yet, allows for and hides pedophiles?

      Hi Linda,

      The Catholic bishops are very clear that they want to use the framework of Religious Liberty to discriminate against people based on sexual orientation, or actvities that conflict with Church doctrine. The most important thing is to shine a light on what’s happening. Here’s a link to a statement by the Catholic bishops back in 2012 that they would be using religious liberty as a rallying cry for action – and that action includes discriminating against gay people and restricting access to reproductive health services.
