A Win for Religious Freedom
A Statement by Supreme Knight Carl Anderson on the administration's HHS Mandate decision:
The first right enumerated in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights is freedom of religion. Today's action by the Trump administration is an important step in protecting and recovering the constitutional rights of the American people. We applaud the administration for promulgating a rule that ends the unconstitutional burden that the so-called "HHS Mandate" imposed on religious employers. It is now crucial that the Trump administration drop its defense of the many lawsuits opposing the "HHS Mandate" to allow for clear court precedent as to the unconstitutional nature of the previous regulations.
