Obama Admin Still Trying to Force Bible Publisher to Obey HHS Mandate
The Obama Administration is still trying to enforce its abortion pill mandate against a Bible publisher which filed a lawsuit against it.
The mandate has generated massive opposition from pro-life groups because it forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties.
The Obama administration opposed an order a judge gave temporarily stopping enforcement, arguing that Tyndale House Publishers isn‚Äôt religious enough for an exemption from the mandate, a component of ObamaCare that forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties....
This case doesn't deal with Hobby lobby, but Tyndale publishers. I would say they have a better position than Hobby lobby does also. This should be an interesting case to watch.
Steven Ertelt wrote: In its opinion accompanying a preliminary injunction order in Tyndale House Publishers v. Sebelius, the court wrote that ‚Äúthe beliefs of Tyndale and its owners are indistinguishable‚Ä¶. Christian principles, prayer, and activities are pervasive at Tyndale, and the company‚Äôs ownership structure is designed to ensure that it never strays from its faith-oriented mission.
excerpt from the article. No, the Romish church is nothing to mess around with, they have a reputation for being nasty with people that cross them.
"The majority of companies and institutions that have been granted injunctions to allow them to not comply with the mandate for religious reasons are owned by Catholics.¬† However, when Hobby Lobby, owned by Protestants takes their case to court, they are told that they are not religious enough and that they must comply."
Looks like Obama's winning big-time over the abortion-pill mandate and these few concerned and godly Protestant business leaders. They never had a written doctrinal foundation to stand on.
