Court rules against B.O.'s contraception mandate

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals hands B.O.'s anti-Catholic power grab another defeat on the legal merits of his contraceptive mandate, i.e. the Violation of Religious Freedom and Conscience Mandate.

The Court ruled that for-profit corporations are "persons" under federal law (Religious Freedom and Restoration Act) and cannot be forced to act in such a way as to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs w/o compelling state interest. 

Other Circuit Courts have ruled otherwise, so this one is headed to the Supreme Court.
