Catholic group launches petition to protect religious freedom in light of Obama attacks


A nationwide campaign has been launched calling on people of faith to join together to protect religious liberties in America. The petition campaign, spearheaded by the group Catholic Advocate, includes the web video entitled “Common Ground” and a petition calling on President Obama to live up to his promises made at the University of Notre Dame.

Obama had told Notre Dame graduates in May 2009: “Let’s honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion, and draft a sensible conscience clause, and make sure that all of our health care policies are grounded in clear ethics and sound science, as well as respect for the equality of women.”
