"I will not let Kirsten Gillibrand off the hook on this one. Not only is her action harmful to the Catholic Church and practicing Catholics, it is an affront to all free citizens who defend the truths of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution, that all men are created equal, that every human person is equal in the dignity and value of her human life, and that every citizen in America has an equal right to freely exercise her faith."

Wendy Long Press release

New York, New York — U.S. Senate candidate Wendy Long, the nominee of the New York Conservative Party who is seeking the Republican party nomination as well in tomorrow's New York primary, today said that her campaign will carry forth to November against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand the principles in the "Fortnight for Freedom" now underway in the United States Catholic Church.

"We are in the midst of two weeks in which all of us American Catholics have been called by the U.S. Bishops to pray and work for religious freedom, particularly the freedom of conscience of Catholic educators, health care workers, and others whose First Amendment right to freely exercise their faith has been trampled upon by Senator Gillibrand and President Obama," said Long.

"I will not let Kirsten Gillibrand off the hook on this one. Not only is her action harmful to the Catholic Church and practicing Catholics, it is an affront to all free citizens who defend the truths of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution, that all men are created equal, that every human person is equal in the dignity and value of her human life, and that every citizen in America has an equal right to freely exercise her faith.

"Senator Gillibrand and President Obama think some citizens are more equal than others. This is clearly wrong. We Catholics are resolved in these two weeks to defend our commitment to religious freedom and equality for all," Long said.

The below photo shows Long meeting privately on June 19 with Cardinal Archbishop Timothy Dolan in his New York office, where they discussed the importance of the "Fortnight for Freedom" now underway.
