“The federal government cannot force people to violate their religion like this,” said Mark Rienzi, senior counsel at the Becket Fund. “Mother Angelica founded EWTN to spread the teachings of the Catholic Church — not to betray them.” The network is refusing to go against its religious teachings and cover contraception.
“If we are willing to compromise our Catholic faith, we are selling the soul of the network,” said EWTN’s president and chief executive officer, Michael P. Warsaw. “The mission of EWTN is not negotiable.”
According to Warsaw, the network is also rejecting the administration’s one year timeline to “adapt” to the new mandate.
“Maybe they missed the word ‘Eternal’ in the name,” Warsaw added. “Betraying God’s love for every human person –even ones who are small and vulnerable — just isn’t something we’ll ever be able to adapt to.”
