Victory? Bible Publisher defeats Obamacare in court. Temporarily.
“A prominent Bible publisher has won a significant victory in the ongoing battle by employers against President Obama’s notorious contraception mandate, which requires businesses and non-church organizations to provide free contraception — including abortion-causing drugs — to their workers,” reports The New American.
“The conservative legal advocacy group Alliance Defending Freedom reported May 6 that at the request of the Department of Justice, a federal appellate court has dismissed an Obama administration appeal of an order that had halted enforcement of the [abortion pill] mandate against Tyndale House Bible publishers. The retreat by the administration marks the first complete appellate victory on a preliminary injunction in any of the cases against the mandate.
“On November 16 U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton granted the publisher a temporary injunction blocking enforcement of the mandate, ruling that ‘the beliefs of Tyndale and its owners are indistinguishable…. Christian principles, prayer, and activities are pervasive at Tyndale, and the company’s ownership structure is designed to ensure that it never strays from its faith-oriented mission.’
“Bible publishers should be free to do business according to the book that they publish,” said ADF Attorney Matt Bowman. “The government dismissed its appeal because it knows how ridiculous it sounds arguing that a Bible publisher isn’t religious enough to qualify as a religious employer. For the government to say that a Bible publisher isn’t religious is outrageous, and now the Obama administration has had to retreat in court.”

But the bottom line, over 60 Christian employers have sued to stop Obamacare’s abortion funding mandate, and the anti-Christian persecution has not stopped.
