James Dobson Beats Obamacare Mandates, at Least for Now

Even as Hobby Lobby awaits what could be a landmark Supreme Court ruling for religious freedom, Christian radio broadcaster James Dobson is reporting a win against Obamacare.

Dobson won a temporary injunction against the Affordable Care Act that prevents the federal government from forcing his ministry, Family Talk, to provide abortion-inducing drugs as part of its insurance coverage.

“In America, we don’t try to separate what people do from what they believe," says Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Kevin Theriot. "Faith-based organizations should be free to operate according to the faith they teach and live out every day.

“If the government can fine Christian ministries out of existence because they want to uphold their faith, there is no limit to what other freedoms it can take away. The court was right to block enforcement of this unconstitutional mandate against Family Talk.”

Is this a good sign for Hobby Lobby and other Christian employers that are challenging Obamacare?
