Obama administration denies HHS mandate exemption to Bible publisher: not religious enough

Tyndale House Publishers, a private company, is one of the world’s largest publishers of Bibles and Christian books and digital media.  Yesterday, they filed a federal lawsuit against the Obama Administration over the HHS mandate.  Tyndale House Publishers is a for-profit company, and as such is not “religious” under the HHS mandate’s definition, even though they are owned by the non-profit Tyndale Foundation, and publish exclusively religious materials.  

Matt Bowman, Senior Legal Counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, said:

Bible publishers should be free to do business according to the book that they publish.  To say that a Bible publisher is not religious is patently absurd. Tyndale House is a prime example of how ridiculous and arbitrary the Obama administration’s mandate is. Americans today clearly agree with America’s founders: the federal government’s bureaucrats are not qualified to decide what faith is, who the faithful are, and where and how that faith may be lived out.

 

We are seeing more and more Protestant business, universities, and other organizations filing lawsuits against this unjust mandate.  As safe harbors expire and grandfathering agreements run their course, we will see many, many more.
