Chuck Swindoll Ministry Wins HHS Mandate Reprieve


A federal judge in Dallas has granted Pastor Chuck Swindoll’s Insight for Living Ministries a temporary exemption from fines for not providing employees with certain birth control coverage.

Swindoll’s ministry considers the use of some contraceptive methods as forms of abortion, which violates their religious convictions.

Insight for Living Ministries was represented by Liberty Institute. Attorney Matthew Kacsmaryk said the court allowed an expedited hearing because IFLM would have been forced to pay fines on Dec. 1 for not accepting mandated contraception coverage.


good for that judge. praying for chuck and his stand for religious freedom.




Chuck’s a good man of God. Got some of his stuff at home. Amen!
