Bishop Lynch: No problem with HHS mandate revision

Bishop Robert Lynch of St. Petersburg, Fla., has posted an entry on his blog assessing the HHS revised mandate. Lynch is a member of the Catholic Health Association Board of Directions.

Here's the money quote, but read the full entry.

Refreshing language, including a call for episcopal humility.

Good stuff -- read the whole post here.
