A Win for Religious LibertiesYesterday, a federal appeals court ruled that the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) violates the rights of religiously affiliated employers by forcing them to provide contraceptive coverage, despite a government subsidy that pays for the treatment. The ruling, by the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in Missouri, upholds two lower court rulings barring the government from enforcing the law’s contraceptive provision against religiously affiliated employers. The Judge said the court must defer to the employers’ “sincere religious belief that their participation in the accommodation process makes them morally and spiritually complicit in providing abortifacient coverage,” according to Reuters. Take a moment to thank God for answered prayer on behalf of our religious liberties here in the US!
