@Tyndalehouse sues to avoid HHS mandate

Tyndale House Publishers, a Bible-only publishing house, filed suit against the government yesterday, arguing that the Obama administration’s contraceptive mandate violates the owners’ right to free exercise of religion.

“The federal government has deemed devout publishers of the Bible to be insufficiently ‘religious’ to enjoy religious freedom in America,” the complaint stated.
