An Army Gathers to Defend the Bill of Rights?
The Wheaton, Illinois-based institution announced Wednesday that it was joining the Catholic University of America in the Washington, D.C. District Court to oppose “the Obamacare mandate that dictates what a religious institution can and cannot do,” the AMAC chief stated.
“Freedom of Religion is the very first right granted us by our Founding Fathers and now the President seeks to challenge it. He would impose his own interpretation of religious principles. What’s next, Freedom of Speech,” Weber asked.
“Wheaton College and other distinctively Christian institutions are faced with a clear and present threat to our religious liberty,” Wheaton College President Dr. Philip Ryken said in a news release. “Our first president, the abolitionist Jonathan Blanchard, believed it was imperative to act in defense of freedom. In bringing this suit, we act in defense of freedom again.”
In addition, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has filed a motion to intervene in the court challenge. He said the law forces Alabama to regulate its health insurance market in a way that violates both the U.S. Constitution and the Alabama Constitution.
