From the Catholic News Agency, which doesn't note the timing of a lawsuit 18 days before the presidential election:
The Archdiocese of Miami and two other Catholic entities filed a lawsuit today against the HHS mandate, adding to the dozens of lawsuits already filed in the matter.
“The HHS mandate represents a real threat … we cannot just sit back and let our religious freedoms be taken away from us,” Archbishop Thomas G. Wenski of Miami told CNA Oct. 19.
About 90 minutes after the press conference, the archidocese informed The Herald of the press conference and the attached written statement from Wenski
Bolstering Catholic identity and teaching what it means to be a Catholic were also on the archbishop's mind.
“I think listening to Vice President Biden's remarks at his debate when he alleged there was no problem with the Church and the administration, also underscores the urgency of the problem, that there is a problem.”
