The new Catholic bishop in Lincoln, Nebraska says the Catholic Church will openly defy the Obama-HHS mandate that compels religious groups and businesses to pay for drugs that may cause abortions.
â€śThe Catholic Church is not going to back down,â€ť said Denver Auxiliary Bishop James Conley, who will start as the new bishop of the Lincoln Diocese on Nov. 20. â€śWe are never going to compromise our principles. We will defy it and face the consequences.â€ť
