Supreme Court decision Hobby Lobby

6/30/2014 Diocese of Steubenville Bishop Jeffrey M. Monforton’s response to the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius. 

The recent Supreme Court decision is welcome news in a societal landscape ripe with the public promotion of religious intolerance and prejudice.  While the once clear skies that protected religious freedom have darkened, this decision strengthens our resolve and vigilance to protect a liberty which has made our nation great.

This day, our nation has been able to take the moral high ground of truth where health benefits for all need not undermine the religious liberty for everyone.
