In a blog post, Sarah Torre writes about some of the victims of the president’s health-care law, including some of those who are currently having to sue the federal government in the hopes of securing their once long-protected conscience rights. She quotes the president of Geneva College, a Presbyterian college in Pennsylvania:


“The issue that we have with the entire law is that the Obama Administration has tried to define religion as being that which what churches do. We believe that religion takes us into the marketplace. There is both an internal community of faith responsibility of religion, but there is also an external service to community. That is religion.”
