Catholic Bishops Call Biden Out for Lying about HHS Mandate

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Biden Debate

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is a little peeved at Vice President Biden who told this whopper during the debate on Thursday night:

“With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution-Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital-none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact.”

The USCCB begs to differ:

This is not a fact. The HHS mandate contains a narrow, four-part exemption for certain “religious employers.” That exemption was made final in February and does not extend to “Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital,” or any other religious charity that offers its services to all, regardless of the faith of those served.
