The Obama administration’s latest revision of its contraceptive policy was welcomed by some religious people as a breakthrough, even a “miracle.” Upon reflection, it seems less like the parting of the Red Sea than a parlor trick.
At issue is whether Obamacare’s broad mandate of insurance coverage for contraceptives, sterilization and drugs that can induce abortion should apply to institutions with moral objections. For more than a year, the administration has struggled to clarify a set of regulations, while provoking 44 legal challenges.
Frankly I have not seen Obama try to inhibit the actions of Muslims with any vigor that he exhibits toward trying to undermine Christian doctrine. In fact places are told they have to allow Muslim practices.
