Catholic League President Bill Donohue has claimed that President Joe Biden is attacking religion in more and more serious ways as his presidency advances.
“Never has religious liberty been more seriously threatened than it is today,” Donohue wrote, noting that Biden was using the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in the threats.
The agencies plan to revoke conscience rights that prevent government employees from being forced to participate in abortions and transgender medical procedures, according to reports.
They are targeting the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) under the direction of HHS secretary Xavier Becerra, Donohue said.
“More than any other entity, it is Catholic institutions that are under the most severe attack,” Donohue observed. “If Biden gets his way, Catholic doctors and hospitals will lose their autonomy. They will either have to shut down or bend to the anti-Catholic norms of his administration.”
