"Bishops Were Ready for Battle Over Birth Control Coverage
By LAURIE GOODSTEIN
Months ago, Roman Catholic bishops laid the groundwork for a major campaign to combat what they saw as the growing threat to religious liberty."
I noticed this bit in the New York Times and stumbled over the phrase “religious liberty”. Is this not an oxymoron, when one is dealing with Catholic doctrine? Women seem to be allowed no freedom to decide, because stupid old men insist upon ruling their lives using ancient (often revised) myths.
I know that one should not comment on religion, but I am only asking a fairly obvious question...

Or this from The New Yorker:
Prior to writing novels, the author enjoyed a multifaceted career: from decorated combat aviator to advertising professional to global communications director of a major consumer brand. He has traveled the world and met sports, film and television stars, political leaders, and royalty. He graduated from Middlebury College, is married, lives in Germany, and has two grown children.
