    Are you referring to the ruling about the individual mandate? This is a different mandate.

    No I am talking about the vote that ACA was constitutional. If they could only focus on the mandate due to the case in front of them I stand corrected.

    So my question would be....if this decision comes back supporting the church...what happens when the next private business/employer that objects to specific health coverage based on religious beliefs brings their suit (as they will)? I realize they are not 'religiously-affiliated organizations' but IMO the basic premise of belief and govt imposition is the same.

    This isn't a ruling. Its just a temporary injunction which gives the State time to respond.

    I understand what it is, not sure why she would grant it based on her vote.

    Excellent. A win for religious freedom. It's a shame Obama didn't have to answer for this in his end of the year media session. So far I think we are 57 to 13.

    Hmm...

    If ACA actually forces religious institutions to obtain insurance that goes against their religion, that sounds like an oversight on the part of whomever wrote that in without an exception for such situations.

    Or possibly intentional? Meh, either way, sounds like it'll have it's day in court.
