Ask a Question
During 2014, the Californian Department of Managed Health Care reclassified abortion as a “basic health service”.
All insurance plans provided by employers must now cover abortions or break the law.
Last month, one group of Californian churches filed a federal lawsuit against the California Department.
They claim that the government has no right to demand of church health insurance plans to cover something that violates their beliefs — and that by doing so, California violates the Constitution.
These people may or may not win their case. If they don’t, America will be shown up (again) as a not-very-free place.
Those Christians, however, need not look so surprised.
They choose to be Christians. The Christian answer to evil has always been willingness to be mocked, persecuted and, perhaps, crucified.
