Religious Conservatives Can Relax A Bit

Here at The Resurgent, we’ve been wary of news that the Trump Administration has not backed down from President Obama’s insistence that religious groups cover access to family planning that violates their religious beliefs.

By Erick Erickson

Leonard Leo has come out to reassure everyone on this issue. Leonard would know. He has deep ties into the administration and conservative movement and served as a behind the scenes sherpa for Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation.

From Leonard Leo to Axios:

“The administration is not stepping back. It’s doing precisely what it should be doing here … because of the way people are attacking Trump executive orders, it’s very important that this thing gets done right and be as litigation-proof as possible, knowing full well they’re going to get sued anyway.”

In fact, what I am being told is the administration is keeping the lawsuit alive to see if they can structure a settlement that would be beneficial to the groups being sued and prevent other adminstrations from trodding on their religious liberty in the future.

Good to hear.
