Supreme Court More Likely to Rule in Against Contraception Mandate in Future Cases
The Supreme Court is more likely to rule in favor of explicitly religious organizations instead of large corporations when it comes to Obamacare’s contraception mandate, Charles Krauthammer said Tuesday night.
Krauthammer predicted on Special Report that after the Supreme Court had dealt with Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby — a case which he said could go either way — cases involving explicitly Catholic organizations stood a better chance of claiming victories over President Obama’s signature healthcare law.
“It seems to me that it is a [belief of] secular Americans — in particular of those who craft a law like [Obamacare and its contraception mandate] — that religion is what happens on Sunday and the rest of your life is nonreligious outside of the church,” Krauthammer said. “The people who really are religious understand that that’s a complete misunderstanding of what religion is.
“If you are involved in a Catholic soup kitchen, your living out your faith every day of the week in your work. And thus, if you are forced to offer contraceptives to people who work in the kitchen, you’ve been made to violate a principle that you believe is completely immoral.”
