Government Interferes with the Religious Liberty of Christian Colleges

After the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, many Christians expressed concern that the decision might result in government interference with the religious liberty of Christian institutions.  As it turns out, federal ObamaCare mandates are doing that already.

My alma mater, Wheaton College, just lost a court challenge related to ObamaCare’s emergency contraceptive mandate.

Wheaton’s community covenant requires all students and faculty to “uphold the God-given worth of human beings, from conception to death.”  

ObamaCare, on the other hand, requires that the College’s health insurance company cover all contraceptive measures, including those methods that destroy a fertilized ovum after sexual intercourse — methods that many Christians consider to be abortifacients.

Apparently, our right to freedom of religion is not as important as our right to cheaply dispose of our unborn children.
