Belmont Abbey Wins A Round In Fight Against Obamacare’s Religious Bigotry

North Carolina’s Belmont Abbey College refuses to be pushed around by the Obamacare mandate that Roman Catholics violate their religious beliefs and help pay for abortion-inducing contraceptives. And now the college has won a round in court.

A three-judge U.S. District Court panel has sided with Belmont Abbey College in its case against the Obama administration over the requirement in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that employers must provide free contraceptives in employee insurance plans.

In a decision announced Tuesday, the judges ordered administration officials to rewrite the law, so it will not force religious institutions to offer contraceptives.
