James Freeman’s June 4 WSJ Best of the Web column is “Democrats vs. Nuns.” In the column he alerts us to this news: “More than two years after Barack Obama left the White House, there’s still no cease-fire in a legal war on women of faith. The non-profit law firm Becket said [on Tuesday] that a group of nuns will once again have to defend their beliefs in a San Francisco federal courthouse [on Thursday, June 6].”
Becket provides the procedural history of the case here. The Becket summaries are full of useful links with additional information.
There is of course a disgraceful local angle to this story. Thanks to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, the state of Minnesota is a party to the lawsuit opposing the Little Sisters of the Poor. For some reason or other, the Star Tribune doesn’t let readers know what a big day this is for Ellison and for Minnesota taxpayers.
