A judge in Colorado district court has dismissed the case of Protestant Colorado Christian College against the HHS mandate. The judge ruled that the case was not ripe for review, meaning that the plaintiff had not yet suffered any harm. Further, the judge ruled that the government has stated that it will amend the mandate to accommodate religious employers.
Since when do judges rule on promises made by one side or the other?
Yes, of course, judge–we’ll trust the government to keep its word, and safeguard the religious freedom of Americans. Well, maybe not.
