  6. 6. Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ, the Resurrection and the Life.In response to the incursion of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) into the realm of religiousfreedom with its controversial contraceptive mandate issued earlier this year, we are compelled to offer “Free Exerciseof Religion: Putting Beliefs into Practice,” an open letter to our members and, indeed, all Americans.Twenty-four leaders of religious organizations across the country have joined with us in signing the letter. Together,these signatories represent more than 10 million American men, women and children. They represent religiousorganizations that stand with us in opposition to the contraceptive mandate on the grounds that it is an infringement ofour God-given right to act according to the tenets of our faith.We are preparing to issue this letter even as we await a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on the constitutionality of thePatient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), a historic piece of legislation meant to extend health coverage tomillions of uninsured Americans. The HHS contraceptive mandate represents one of the reforms included in the law.The ramifications of the anticipated ruling are, of course, as yet unknown.That said, our action in authoring this letter is not a statement on the global design of PPACA. As Christians living outour calling to serve our brothers and sisters with the mercy and love of Jesus Christ, we support and engage in wide-ranging efforts to restore health and well-being to the sick and suffering.Thus, this letter specifically is in response to one effect of the contraceptive mandate—one that would require religiousorganizations, with only narrowly defined exceptions, to include coverage for contraceptives, including those that couldcause the death of unborn babies, in their employee health plans. This is in direct opposition to a core teaching of TheLutheran Church—Missouri Synod—that only God gives and takes life.I encourage you to read the letter and to share it widely.In Christ,The Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, PresidentThe Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Page 6 
  7. 7. FREE EXERCISE OF RELIGION: Putting Beliefs into Practice An Open Letter from Religious Leaders in the United States to All AmericansDear Friends,  Religious institutions are established because of religious beliefs and convictions. Such institutions include not only churches, synagogues, mosques, and other places of worship, but also schools and colleges, shelters and community kitchens, adoption agencies and hospitals, organizations that provide care and services during natural disasters, and countless other organizations that exist to put specific religious beliefs into practice. Many such organizations have provided services and care to both members and non‐members of their religious communities since before the Revolutionary War, saving and improving the lives of countless American citizens.  As religious leaders from a variety of perspectives and communities, we are compelled to make known our protest against the incursion of the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) into the realm of religious liberty. HHS has mandated that religious institutions, with only a narrow religious exception, must provide access to certain contraceptive benefits, even if the covered medications or procedures are contradictory to their beliefs. We who oppose the application of this mandate to religious institutions include not only the leaders of religious groups morally opposed to contraception, but also leaders of other religious groups that do not share that particular moral conviction.  That we share an opposition to the mandate to religious institutions while disagreeing about specific moral teachings is a crucial fact. Religious freedom is the principle on which we stand. Because of differing understandings of moral and religious authority, people of good will can and often do come to different conclusions about moral questions. Yet, even we who hold differing convictions on specific moral issues are united in the conviction that no religious institution should be penalized for refusing to go against its beliefs. The issue is the First Amendment, not specific moral teachings or specific products or services.  The HHS mandate implicitly acknowledged that an incursion into religion is involved in the mandate. However, the narrowness of the proposed exemption is revealing for it applies only to religious organizations that serve or support their own members. In so doing, the government is establishing favored and disfavored religious organizations: a privatized religious organization that serves only itself is exempted from regulation, while one that believes it should also serve the public beyond its membership is denied a religious exemption. The so‐called accommodation and the subsequent Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) do little or nothing to alleviate the problem.   No government should tell religious organizations either what to believe or how to put their beliefs into practice. We indeed hold this to be an unalienable, constitutional right. If freedom of religion is a constitutional value to be protected, then institutions developed by religious groups to implement their core beliefs in education, in care for the sick or suffering, and in other tasks must also be protected. Only by doing so can the free exercise of religion have any meaning. The HHS mandate prevents this free exercise. For the well‐being of our country, we oppose the application of the contraceptive mandate to religious institutions and plead for its retraction.
