Just sayin'

Catholics are responding ably against the President's outrageous infringement of religious liberty. This is not about birth control, it's about the power of the State.

That said, many of the columnists I'm reading are doing the administration's job for it by defending the Catholic nature of the opposition. Little attempt is made to talk about evangelical opposition to the HHS mandate, for instance. The end result is to make it appear that it's really about Catholic beliefs after all, not about everyone's relation to the State.

So, guys (and gals) -- conservatives all -- could we please back up and be a wee bit more inclusive in our defense of common values?
