Supreme Court decision on Obamacare clears way for bishops’ lawsuits

June 29, 2012

A backgrounder in the Washington Post explains why the US Supreme Court’s decision on President Obama’s health-care reform legislation does not resolve the administration’s conflict with the American bishops (and other religious leaders) regarding the contraceptive mandate. In fact, with the legislation surviving its constitutional challenge, the religious conflict is now likely to become more acute.

    To Gregory108 I say, yes, He can lose ! It happens all the time, when you think you can't, you find out you can. Pray, and do all you can to make your vote count. Talk to you family and you friends and help them see the truth, let the Holy Spirit guide you. We have just begun to fight back,but we need Catholic's to stand together with our bishops and for our Faith. We can win this.

    Considering the decisions coming from the courts these days, especially Arizona and Obamacare, having legal truth or correct interpretation on one's side seems to make no difference! Who else petitions the court wrongly,recorded on scores of videos, testifying to the wrong interpretation ("It's not a tax!"), only to be corrected by the judge and be given victory? I would hold little hope if I were the bishops! Too little; too late. Even the election is in severe doubt! This man does not lose!
