The Social Conservative Review: March 27, 2014

March 27, 2014

Dear Friends,

This week's historic hearing at the Supreme Court, testing whether or not private for-profit businesses have any religious rights the federal government should respect, was a landmark event.

FRC's Senior Fellow for Legal Studies, constitutional attorney Cathy Ruse, was in the Court listening to the arguments. Her piece in USA Today captures the key arguments well. And the Director of FRC's Center for Religious Liberty, respected legal analyst Travis Weber, explains the stakes involved in "Not Just for Profit."

This battle is not about contraception, reproductive rights, or women's health. It's about whether a company that deliberately follows biblical teachings has the right to apply those teachings to the way it does business. In other words, it's about the very foundation of religious liberty and freedom of conscience.

Let's pray that God will guide the justices of the Supreme Court as they weigh this critical decision. And regardless of the outcome, let's always remember that the duty we have to obey Him in all things is primary.

P.S. Sign FRC's petition to the Air Force Academy that calls on the Academy to continue to allow its cadets to enjoy the very religious freedom they have sworn to uphold!
