Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said more than 2,500 pastors and evangelical leaders have signed a letter to President Obama asking him to reverse the mandate.
While most Protestants do not oppose contraception per se, the letter calls the mandate a violation of religious freedoms.
“This is not a Catholic issue,’’ Perkins said. “We will not tolerate any denomination having their religious freedom infringed upon by the government.’’
Perkins' authoritarian view of freedom really needs no comment.
