A college in Louisiana is fighting against the Obama HHS mandate and refusing to let a lawsuit be dismissed, though that is what the Obama administration is seeking. The response from the school to Obama’s DOJ was that they would not dismiss the lawsuit and intended to pursue it in order to defend their religious freedom. The school is suing over the Obama HHS mandate because it forces them to violate their religious beliefs by providing things in their employee insurance plans that they oppose. A recent article states: “The government shouldn’t punish people of faith for following their beliefs when making decisions for themselves or their organizations. That’s why this lawsuit should not be casually dismissed as the Obama administration would like to see happen…This mandate leaves religious employers with no true choice: either comply and abandon your religious freedom and conscience, or resist and be punished.” The school is not alone as dozens of religious schools and organizations have sued the Obama administration over the mandate declaring it violates their religious convictions.
