The Catholic Bishops support net-neutrality rules.
In a letter to Congress last week outlining public policy priorities, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops endorsed the controversial broadband policy.
"True net neutrality is necessary for people to flourish in a democratic society," the letter said.
The bishops said they support federal regulations and legislation that "ensure equal access to the Internet for all, including religious and non-profit agencies, as well as those in more sparsely populated or economically distressed areas."
The letter also addressed marriage, abortion and the economy, among various other policy issues.
