Think Obama Values Religious Freedom? Think Again

After the HHS mandate passed that demands every citizen and employer pay for abortion, abortifacients, contraception, and sterilization in their insurance premiums, defenders of religious freedom and conscience took a stand. Colleges, organizations, churches, and businesses all began suing the Obama administration for his egregious trampling of religious liberty. One business, Hercules Industries in Colorado, won a temporary injunction against the mandate so they would not have to violate their religious beliefs by offering certain services and products in their employee insurance plans. But now, in a move that is sure to once again let the country know just how little President Obama truly values religious liberty, his administration is appealing the court’s ruling. LifeNews.com shared the story: “Now, in contradiction to the Obama administration’s recent claims of ‘unwavering’ support for religious freedom, the president’s lawyers filed an appeal Tuesday of that order. ’Every American, including family business owners, should be free to live and do business according to their faith…The Obama administration claims ‘unwavering’ support for religious freedom, but this appeal demonstrates that the only thing unwavering is the administration’s tenacious opposition to that freedom.’” Click here for original article.
