Wednesday, the Supreme Court delivered two noteworthy victories for religious liberty. In Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania, the court upheld a Trump administration policy protecting conscience and religious freedom in the context of the Affordable Care Act ("ACA"). In Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru, the court robustly defined the First Amendment rights of religious schools and institutions to determine who will teach and defend the tenets of their faith.

It’s easy to get infuriated and disappointed by the state of affairs in Washington. But this week we are happy to bring you a bit of good news out of the Supreme Court.

Little SistersIn a victorious 7-2 decision in Little Sisters of the Poor Saints Peter and Paul Home v. Pennsylvaniathe Court ruled that the Little Sisters are exempt from the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) contraceptive mandate. The Little Sisters are an order of Roman Catholic religious sisters who serve the elderly poor. In the past decade, the Sisters have been dragged through multiple courtrooms fighting for protection against being forced to fund healthcare plans required under the Obama-era contraceptive mandate, which requires healthcare plans to provide women’s “preventative care,” including birth control and abortion-inducing drugs.

The Democratic-led House Majority has certainly wasted no time legislating bad policy in the month of June while the nation is distracted by civil unrest and the Coronavirus. While attempting to punish police through so-called reformsocializing healthcare, and cramming the Green New Deal into an infrastructure bill, the Democrats found time to introduce and pass an unconstitutional D.C. statehood bill, H.R. 51.

Time To Arise and Take A Stand

If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? This was the question David asked in Psalm 11. Those around him, who were looking only to the natural world may have answered with things like "Run away." Or "Flee to mountains." "Get as far away as you can."

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Cynthia Collins, Global Advisor for Operation Outcry states:

"Abortionists will be emboldened by this decision in their unethical standard of care of vulnerable women. Now there should be a sign at every abortion business, 'Women beware, lower standard of care for women seeking abortion. Enter at your own risk.'"

As we’ve seen with the Coronavirus, fear-mongering is used by the left to create a sense of urgency and following from the American people. Sadly, this type of excitement is not new. It’s a useful tool that communist regimes use to instill obedience and on a more relatable note, climate change has long been used to drive the leftist political agenda.
