Maureen Kramlich, JD Biography

Title:
Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities in the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“In recent years there has been an effort to redefine Catholic institutions,… as non-Catholic or non-religious … Some of these laws use an American Civil Liberties Union definition of “religious employer” that transforms Catholic organizations into non-Catholic ones…. [suggesting] that Catholic schools and organizations are not Catholic if they serve non-Catholics betrays a total ignorance of Catholic social teaching…
Allowing the ACLU to redefine “Catholic” is beyond the pale. If we allow this to happen, all of us—Catholic and non-Catholic alike—will lose.”
