|“We used to only ask, ‘Are you hungry. Are you in need?’ With [the Health and Human Services] mandate, we will now have to ask, ‘Are you Catholic?’ The burden that would be put back on the government would be great should Catholic assistance be forced to disappear. It is alarming to think of the thousands, in our area alone, who would not receive assistance if this mandate stands.” - Bishop Kevin Farrell|
