Zubik v Burwell – A Bridge Too Far

In this informative episode of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty Podcast, Holly Hollman breaks down Zubik v. Burwell, an upcoming religious liberty case to be heard by the Supreme Court. The case is similar to the more famous Hobby Lobby case in that the issue revolves around the stipulation in the Affordable Care Act that employer provided insurance must include access to contraception. In this case, the petitioners (religious non-profits) are taking their demands for the free exercise of their religious beliefs too far, beyond the balance of other concerns and interests in public well-being the government may have. And so the BJC has filed a friend-of-the-court brief defending the religious accommodations the government has already made.

But before I confuse you any further…just listen to Holly, who does a much better job of explaining this important case than I have.
