Dear Katie,  Thank you for your thoughtful, balanced and thought-provoking comment.  I would only add that the Cardinal’s response also failed to acknowledge the on-line pleas of the many lay Catholics who, at some risk to themselves, had heeded the USCCB’s call to publicly support the Church’s resistance to the mandate.  Many signed petitions; others attended vigils or spoke up at work, in school, among their neighbors.  Many have suffered increased marginalization, derision, and  scorn at work, in schools, in doctors’ offices and among their neighbors.  Some have already been forced to make difficult and lonely decisions about insurance coverage.  All must wonder how to protect themselves and their families should Obama be re-elected.  Rather than acknowledging the worries of his flock, the Cardinal has offered an interesting explanation for his own risk-taking -- perhaps a “prudential” decision for himself and his dinner guests -- but one that seems excessively risky to those who had thought they were joining a united Catholic front against persecution.    

Thanks again, Katie, for helping to put it in perspective..     Sincerely, Freda
