Mr. SMITH of Texas. Mr. Speaker, last month, 43 Catholic institutions across America joined together to defend the First Amendment and filed a total of 12 lawsuits against the administration in order to protect their right to freedom of religion on behalf of all Americans.
This is the most significant religious lawsuit in U.S. history, and Christian leaders all across America have joined in support of these Catholic institutions. Despite the unprecedented and historic nature of this event, the national media largely ignored it.
The Catholic institutions filed the lawsuit due to new ObamaCare regulations that force some religious institutions to pay for coverage of antiabortion drugs, regardless of the employer's religious and moral objections.
How can the liberal media ignore 12 different lawsuits being filed in Federal courts that each charge the administration with violating the First Amendment right of freedom of religion?
The liberal national media continues to show their bias by their scanty coverage of this historical event.
