Kyle Duncan, Becket Fund General Counsel against unconstitutional HHS mandate, forcing religious employers to provide health coverage for contraceptives, abortion drugs… against their will. After the court ruling to protect religious freedom he said government promises can no longer be accepted in terms of religious freedom: “The court is not going to let the government slide by on non-binding promises to fix the problem down the road.”
Washington Examiner: “Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius cannot enforce the Obamacare contraception mandate as it is written, but must follow through on a promise to rewrite the rule to accommodate religious liberty, a federal appeals court ordered.
The Obama administration “represented to the court that it would never enforce [the mandate] in its current form against the appellants or those similarly situated as regards contraceptive services,” the three judges hearing the case wrote in their order. The Obama team made that promise during oral arguments against Wheaton College and The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which sued over the contraception mandate but lost at the lower court level.”
Stimulus promised jobs, Sandy victims were promised immediate assistance – no red lines, and students have been promised protection from the mentally ill with stricter gun laws. In the normal effort to ‘move forward’, how long before we start reading about personal issues concerning the judges who made this decision? Merry Christmas Justice Roberts.
