Virginia AG: Jail May Be The Way To Protest Contraception Mandate
Ken Cuccinelli suggests civil disobedience to avoid providing women with contraception under Obamacare.
Cuccinelli called the mandate an attack on the Roman Catholic Church and religious freedom and suggested that opponents fight back by forcing the feds to crack down on those who don’t comply.
Cuccinelli, who is Catholic, said he had spoken to a bishop who suggested he’d go to jail to protest it.
“My local bishop said he told a group, `Well, you know, I told a group I’m ready to go to jail,’ and I told him, `Bishop, don’t take this personally – you need to go to jail,” Cuccinelli said, trying to balance levity with seriousness.
