BALTIMORE (AP) --The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is
meeting in Baltimore amid what some bishops believe is a cultural
siege against the church.

Some leaders say they're having to deal with an assault on marriage, White House hostility toward Catholic teachings and the erosion of religious liberties at state levels.

But many Catholic academics, activists and parishioners say the bishops are overreacting. John Gehring of Faith in Public Life, an
advocacy network for more liberal religious voters, has argued that in a pluralistic society, government officials can choose policies that differ from church teaching without prejudice being a factor.
