Obama admin. continues attempt to force Bible publisher to violate its beliefs


Tuesday, January 15, 2013

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman regarding the decision of the Obama administration Tuesday to continue trying to force a Bible publisher to act contrary to its religious beliefs in Tyndale House Publishers v. Sebelius:

“Bible publishers should be free to do business according to the book that they publish. Regrettably, the administration does not want religious freedom to stand in the way of imposing ObamaCare. The district court rightly halted ObamaCare’s abortion pill mandate against Tyndale House, but the administration continues to argue 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 startling. We will continue to argue on appeal that the administration cannot disregard the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom to achieve certain political purposes.”
