Liberty University has renewed its challenge to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) on the grounds that it violates the school’s religious freedom. Read the details in FoxNews.
Personally, I’m a big fan of birth control. I’m all in favor of insurance companies paying for it. Birth control prevents unwanted pregnancies. I wish more people used it. But, unlike those who relish imposing their personal values upon others, I cannot support a law that requires employers like Liberty University to provide insurance policies that violate their religious beliefs. As much as I value birth control, I value religious freedom even more.
This is an issue where libertarians and fundamentalists can make common cause. (Don’t get me started on creationism, and we’ll do just fine.) Go Liberty!
