The HHS mandate is generating many stories - way too many to keep up with. Here are just some of the video interviews and stories floating out there on the HHS mandate which has the U.S. Catholic bishops.

*171* Bishops (about 95% of Dioceses) have spoken out against Obama/HHS mandate (see complete link list with statements compiled by Tom Peters at Catholic Vote)

Let's not let yesterday's negligence result in silence from this point forward.
