Issue of religious liberty reaches Supreme Court once again

A diverse group of people and organizations representing a wide array of religious beliefs will argue their case before the Supreme Court Wednesday that the government has no role in instructing them about the tenets of their faiths.

The 140 individuals and groups — including the Little Sisters of the Poor, Priests for Life, Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C., 37 universities, and 40 charities – have brought more than 50 lawsuits against the Obama administration’s HHS contraceptive mandate, which requires most employers to provide free contraception, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilization procedures to their employees through health insurance plans.

.....

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and director of Civil Rights for the Unborn—Priests for Life’s African American outreach program—said the lawsuit she and Priests for Life are bringing before the Supreme Court this week brings to mind the civil rights battles of the 1950s and 60s.

King said in a statement:

When I was growing up, the government denied my basic civil rights because of the color of my skin. Today, the government is trying to deny my God-given right to practice my faith for reasons that also make no sense. The oral arguments to be held before the Supreme Court this Wednesday in the case that Priests for Life, I, and many others are bringing against the HHS mandate is really a continuation of the Civil Rights movement I knew as a child.

King said the case before the high court is about the basic rights of all Americans.

“If bureaucrats are allowed to dictate what we must believe, we are not free,” she continued. “And make no mistake, the HHS mandate is not a rule passed or even envisioned by Congress, it’s a regulation drawn up by unelected, unrepresentative people who think that their agenda is more important than our freedom.”

“The government was wrong in the 1950s and 60s – it’s wrong again today,” King asserted
