The great irony of Obama’s unrelenting assault on religious freedom may have had the unintended effect of strengthening religious freedom.
When the Obama administration went to the mattresses on arguments such as declaring that religious schools do not have the right to hire and fire for mission they got unanimously smacked down by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Now, the Administration is red-faced again with the high court ruling that it doesn’t have the power to force “closely held companies” to provide contraceptive coverage. That’s a big deal.
It would be ironic if the overall effect of the Obama administration on religious liberty is a strengthening rather than a deleterious one.
Don’t get me wrong, we’re all still doomed but I’m enjoying the momentary victory.
