As Hobby Lobby made its case to the Supreme Court, arguing that its business is sufficiently Christian to be exempt from Obamacare's contraceptive mandate, another business was arguing its evangelical bona fides, too.
WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, the evangelical division of Penguin Random House (PRH), is one of the world's leading Christian publishers. Its backlist includes David Platt's Radical, John Piper's Desiring God, and Stephen Arterburn's Every Man's Battle. But it has resigned its membership in the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) rather than submit to an ethics review over God and the Gay Christian‚ÄĒa book it didn't actually publish.
The book, in which Matthew Vines argues that same-gender sex is not sinful, was published by Convergent Books. A 16-month-old PRH line, Convergent describes itself as "for progressive and mainline Christians who demand an open, inclusive, and...
Also, SCOTUS, did not say Obamacare is founded or funded by taxes they said IT WAS A TAX and thus it was legal. ---no matter who originated it (even if as you allege they stole it from the republicans) we only have it as law now because democrats and ONLY democrats voted for it, and they have gone on record, thanks to the republicans, of having wanted it over 50 times---

1. Koph sounds a bit off-center.
2. The govt is not Caesar. Just for the sake of argument only, though, let us say Caesar is government, which you mistakenly think. Caesar is also required to abide by the law.

no one should have to beg the king to be exempted.
the supreme court has failed America.
and evangelicals fail America as well if they think they can have collective rights after trading out all their individual rights for "safety". their collective power has largely waned. respecting each other's individual rights to life, liberty, religion, speech and thought, privacy, trial and defense and what am I missing is what made this country foundationally what it was.
