From our friends at Catholic Advocate

NOTE: Deal Hudson, President of Catholic Advocate, will join us this evening on my radio program to talk about this new initiative. Link to listen here.

Catholic Advocate launched a nationwide campaign today calling on people of faith to join together to protect our religious liberties. The campaign 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.

“President Obama has failed us,” said Catholic Advocate President Deal Hudson. “Shortly after taking office, President Obama gave the commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame. In this televised address, he spoke of the importance of cooperation and seeking the common good on decisive issues like abortion, saying: ‘When we open our hearts and our minds to those who may not think like we do or believe what we do – that’s when we discover at least the possibility of common ground.’ But without action, words are just words.”

Catholic Advocate is asking the millions of men and women of faith across the country to demand that President Obama live up to his promises delivered at Notre Dame through a nationwide petition.

“No other president in American history has so blatantly chipped away at our religious liberties,” added Catholic Advocate Vice President Matt Smith. “From refusing to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, continuing to allow taxpayer dollars to go towards abortion providing organizations like Planned Parenthood, to lifting the ban on stem cell research, stripping conscience protections for health care workers, and refusing to meet with or respond to our Catholic Bishops’ concerns, this president has made it clear that he does not care that his far-left agenda is undermining our right to religious freedom. This isn’t just a Catholic issue; it’s a religious liberty issue that affects all Americans of faith.”
