The Supreme Court heard oral arguments this week in the Hobby Lobby case, in which that corporation, which is owned by Christians, is challenging some of the HHS insurance mandates. Hobby Lobby claims the mandates force it to provide contraceptive coverage that includes drugs that induce abortion, and that this is contrary to their religious convictions.
One astute observer, the estimable Matthew Frank, reviews one of the exchanges among the justices here. He ventures the prediction that Hobby Lobby–and a good version of religious liberty–will prevail. Let’s pray that he is correct.
