The provider of health insurance for several hundred ministries affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention received an injunction on Friday (Dec. 20) against the Obama administration’s HHS contraceptive and abortifacient mandate. Here’s the story from the Baptist Press:

Federal District Judge Timothy DeGiusti issued a preliminary injunction Dec. 20 against the federal government’s mandate that requires employers, including many religiously affiliated ones, to provide abortion-causing drugs and devices. …

DeGiusti’s ruling means organizations that use GuideStone’s health care plans, now or in the future, will be protected from participating in providing abortion-causing drugs for the foreseeable future.

Response: The judicial tide seems to be turning against the HHS Mandate. Real freedom of religion and freedom of conscience are at risk with the mandate demands of this administration and nobody really knows yet what Obamacare will eventually bring us when it comes to abortion.

I just hope that the Supreme Court will rule once and for all on the ‘Mandate’ issues next year. The Obama administration has redefined religious institutions for exemption purposes so finely that only official worship centers and churches are exempted from the mandate. Allied and denominationally related ministries like those in this lawsuit are expected to abide by the mandate regardless of their belief system. If the Obama administration wins this then freedom of religion will have diminished considerably in America and the country will never be the same.             *Top
