Judge rules for Christian university


#1

A federal judge has ruled that Colorado Christian University does not have to provide sterilization and contraceptive services to its employees and students.

Judge Robert E. Blackburn ruled Friday that the Health and Human Services mandate infringes on the university’s freedom of religion.

“This is an important win for religious liberty,” said Eric Baxter, an attorney for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which represents the college.

With so many contradicting decisions, like the one against EWTN, and the looming July 1 deadline, this requires an emergency hearing by the Supreme Court.

The other possibility is that the soon to be released decision in the Hobby Lobby case will overturn all the lower court decisions against religious freedom for church related organizations. If for-profit companies are found to have conscience rights, then not-for-profits must have those rights.

Thanks, Abyssinia. This once again shows that if there is pro-life news you don’t know about, it probably is not important.

I hope Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialities have a good outcome with the Supreme court.

Well, this is definitely good news. Now hopefully we’ll hear the Supreme Courts ruling for Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood soon and it will be a ruling that protects religious liberty.
