Good News On The Education Front... North Carolina, at least. Belmont Abbey College noticed that their Health Insurance plan covered services such as contraception, voluntary sterilisation and abortion. The College decided that this was unacceptable, and have had such provision removed.

President William Thierfelder said, “As a Roman Catholic institution, Belmont Abbey College is not able to and will not offer nor subsidize medical services that contradict the clear teaching of the Catholic Church. There was no other course of action possible if we were to operate in fidelity to our mission and to our identity as a Catholic college.”

Wow. A Catholic institution which believes in being faithful to the teachings of the Church...

Mantilla twitched in the direction of the great Curt Jester.
