A major religious freedom victory took place when the Obama administration abandoned its lawsuit against Tyndale House publishers – the world’s largest publisher of Bibles. Obama had initially sought to force Tyndale to obey the HHS mandate, but has since withdrawn the lawsuit against Tyndale. It could be as the Alliance Defending Freedom has reported, that Obama doesn’t want to try and convince a court that a Bible publisher is not “religious enough” for an exemption. A recent article states:
“In a huge victory for pro-life advocates taking on the controversial HHS mandate, the Obama administration is giving up its effort to force a Bible publisher to obey it…Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing Tyndale House Publishers say the administration is apparently nervous about trying to defend its position that a Bible publisher is not religious enough for a religious exemption to the mandate.” Click here for original article.
