Archbishop Chaput: We better wake up

Dear Friend of CV, Archbishop Chaput said we better wake up. 
He wrote: “The latest IRS ugliness is a hint of the treatment disfavored religious groups may face in the future, if we sleep through the national discussion of religious liberty now.”
As Catholics who love our Church and cherish our liberty, we refuse to slumber when our freedom is in jeopardy!
That’s why we created 7 Ways to Activate Your Fortnight for Freedom!
The right to believe, to follow Jesus Christ and His Church without fear or threat, has been twisted into the privilege to be granted an ‘accommodation’ from the hands of a politician.
This isn’t freedom – it is oppression.
This is why our Bishops have called for a “Fortnight for Freedom” – two weeks of prayer, public witness and education to help turn the tide and restore our rightful Constitutional, and God-given right to religious freedom.
The Fortnight began last Friday, June 21 and goes until Thursday, July 4.

You can get started right now.
