Members of the clergy went to Capitol Hill today to accuse the Obama administration of stepping on their turf.
The religious leaders appeared at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the the federal birth control benefits mandate recently adopted by HHS.
"Although people may reasonably debate whether pork is good for you, that’s not the question posed by the nationwide pork mandate," Lori said. "Instead, the mandate generates the question whether people who believe—even if they believe in error—that pork is not good for you, should be forced by government to serve pork within their very own institutions. In a nation committed to religious liberty and diversity, the answer, of course, is no."
Even if some, or most, Jews do eat pork, but that would be irrelevant, Lori said.
