Little Sisters Getting Out From Under President Obama's Thumb
At least for now that is. Thank God that the Supreme Court has allowed the Sisters to not comply with the HHS mandate until the final ruling on their upcoming lawsuit in Denver. This is a significant ruling, even if it's short term. It will save the Sisters from paying the punitive fines that would have prevented them from continuing their exemplary care of the poor elderly in over thirty facilities across the US.
So keep praying. Yes, this particular battle is won, but the war isn't over. The lower court of appeals in the tenth district where they are suing could still rule against them. But, let's hope that this will, at the very least, help to mobilize more even support for the Sisters and allow them to continue to do what they do best- caring for the Least of These .(Matt 25)
PS: After I wrote this I had to wonder, how in the world did our country get to this point where the President (who swore an oath to follow the Constitution) is purposely attempting to single out and punish religious organizations for following the tenets of their faith. The government is preventing a group of nuns from doing the work of God caring for the poor! Ten years ago if this happened, there would be a massive uproar and even the mainstream media may have spoken out. God have mercy.
