John Daniel Davidson notes another federal court has found fault with the contraception mandate :
In its 2-1 ruling, the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals noted the companys case was especially compelling because Grote is self-insured and there is no third-party insurance company involved. Forcing the plaintiffs to provide contraceptives to their 1148 employees unduly compels them to directly violate their personal religious beliefs, the court said. The legal duties imposed on them by the contraception mandate conflict with the religious duties required by their faith, and they cannot comply with both.
Also today, Russell E. Saltzman on Christian divorce on Valentine’s Day :
Growing up, I knew only one kid from a broken home, my best friend in elementary school. There was a thing about it, a shame that went with it and a pity I felt for him. Everyone else I knew had parents firmly married. He was an aberration. Graduating high school in the mid-1960s, and still knowing no one else from a divorced home, I recall my astonishment four years later, running into a now-divorced classmate.
