With all of the hard news surrounding the Newtown massacre and allied stories, this major win for religious freedom in America went unnoticed by most in the MSM:

From the Christian Post:

A federal appeals court on Tuesday sided with Wheaton College and Belmont Abbey College in a decision related to the ongoing court challenges to the Obama administration’s birth control mandate. The court said it would hold the Obama administration to its promise to never implement the current birth control mandate and to create a new rule by August, as part of the court decision.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ordered Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to give it updates every 60 days, beginning in February, until a new rule is issued in August. The lawsuits will be held in abeyance until that time

Response: This is a major win for all religious institutions seeking to maintain their religious freedom and freedom of religious conscience. The decision effectively blocks the Obama administration from implementing their HHS contraceptives/abortifacient mandate against religious institutions. The administration now must change the rule to the satisfaction of the court.               *Top
