And so it begins . . .
EEOC Forces Catholic Belmont Abbey College to Fund Contraception in Insurance
"The Obama administration has ruled that a small Catholic college must provide coverage for contraception in its insurance plans for employees. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) ruled that Belmont Abbey College must provide the coverage, even though it violates Catholic teachings."
The President of Belmont Abbey, William Thierfelder, is a former Board of Directors member of the company I work for, Real Alternatives. Please pray for him as I trust that he is in for a battle that will not soon end. He is involved in what is called, "white martydom" these days. He is very strong in our faith and will no doubt fight this to the bitter end.
