Lincoln Diocese Bishop Issues Letter Reiterating Disapproval of Contraception

The bishop of the Lincoln Catholic Diocese has issued a letter reminding the diocese's nearly 98,000 members that the church's stance has not changed on the use of contraceptives, which is still forbidden.  On KFOR's Coby Mach Show, Bishop Conley said birth control degrades the body's purpose, which is to reproduce the human race. In his letter issued Tuesday, Conley says the church "has always taught that rejecting the gift of children erodes the love between husband and wife."
