The Government Asked How to End Faith-Based Discrimination: We Answered
The Federal Government wanted to know how it could end discrimination against religious and faith-based organizations. The answer is obvious: stop discriminating. Fortunately, the government asked the public for ideas. We answered.
On October 25, 2017, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) made a request for information to the public. This request sought advice and insight on how HHS could remove “Barriers for Religious and Faith-Based Organizations to Participate in HHS Programs and Receive Public Funding.” HHS is the Federal Government’s “largest grant-maker and the third largest Federal contracting agency.” HHS also recognized that religious and faith-based organizations provide over one trillion dollars of invaluable charitable work each year.
Given the sheer size of HHS and the money involved, let alone the First Amendment, it is about time one of the most onerous government agencies took stock of the way it treats religious organizations, and acted to improve those procedures.
Under the previous Administration, HHS had used the abortion-pill mandate to force elderly nuns, celibate priests, and all people with a sincere religious objection to the use of contraceptives and abortifacients to choose between following the law and practicing their faith. HHS had failed to recognize the inherent rights and dignity of all persons, especially the unborn. HHS had excluded pro-life organizations, which are often religious or faith-based, from participating in HHS programs accessing public funds.
