The Most Consequential Christian Liberty Case – Denny Burk: One of the most important religious liberty cases in a generation will come before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties will be making their final appeal for an exemption from Obamacare’s coercive ‘contraceptive’ mandate.”
