    Tyndale House Publishers latest to challenge abortion pill mandate [LINK]
    10/2/2012

    WASHINGTON — Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing Tyndale House Publishers filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate. Tyndale House is one of the world’s largest privately held Christian publishers of books, Bibles, and digital media.

    The publisher is subject to the mandate because Obama administration rules say for-profit corporations are categorically non-religious, even though Tyndale House is strictly a publisher of Bibles and other Christian materials and is owned by the non-profit Tyndale House Foundation. The foundation provides grants to help meet the physical and spiritual needs of people around the world.

    “Bible publishers should be free to do business according to the book that they publish,” said Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman. “To say that a Bible publisher is not religious is patently absurd. Tyndale House is a prime example of how ridiculous and arbitrary the Obama administration’s mandate is. Americans today clearly agree with America’s founders: the federal government’s bureaucrats are not qualified to decide what faith is, who the faithful are, and where and how that faith may be lived out.”

    The mandate forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties.

    “ObamaCare demands that Americans choose between two poison pills: either desert your faith by complying, or resist and be punished,” Bowman said.

    Bible publisher wins stay of Obama contraceptive mandate [LINK]

    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times

    A federal court on Friday said a Bible publisher doesn't have to offer health insurance coverage for contraceptives if it has moral objections, blocking the Obama administration from imposing its contraceptive care mandate on the business for now.

    Judge Reggie B. Walton said the Obama administration's contraceptive coverage mandate puts companies that companies such as Illinois-based Tyndale House Publishers in an "untenable position" — either violate their beliefs, or face major penalties for failing to comply.

    I'm sure this will find it's way up to the Supreme Court.

    How do you think they will rule?
