    A group of Catholic health and educational organizations don’t have to comply with a federal Affordable Care Act requirement to provide their employees with contraception coverage, a federal judge in New York ruled.

    U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan in Brooklyn today barred the government from enforcing the mandate against Catholic Health Care System, Catholic Health Services of Long Island, Cardinal Spellman High School and Monsignor Farrell High School.

    The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York and the health and educational groups challenged the mandate on religious freedom grounds. After the U.S. issued a rule exempting the archdiocese, schools and health-care affiliates were still subject to the law, which takes effect Jan. 1.

    Now we will have to wait and see if Obama decides to appeal the verdict to a higher court. In the Democrat war against Christians, it had been Democrat strategy to destroy the traditional American accommodation to Catholicism. This Democrat attack on Catholicism was a little strange since Catholics overwhelming vote Democrat.
