The United States Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case for March 25, 2014.  According to SCOTUSBlog, the issue is:

“Whether the [RFRA], which provides that the government ‘shall not substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion’ unless that burden is the least restrictive means to further a compelling governmental interest, allows a for-profit corporation to deny its employees the health coverage of contraceptives to which the employees are otherwise entitled by federal law, based on the religious objections of the corporation’s owners.”

The case will determine the extent of religious freedom of corporations vs. the right of individuals to government-mandated healthcare coverage (if there is any) and we will continue to follow the developments.
