Yesterday a number of Catholics filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration citing a violation of religious freedom thanks to the contraception mandate in ObamaCare. Now, a new poll shows that the vast majority of Americans believe religious freedom trumps ObamaCare, or in other words, the First Amendment of the Constitution trumps ObamaCare.
The Knights of Columbus, a social organization of Catholics, recently commissioned a nation-wide poll to gauge support for the Obama Administration's view. The poll, conducted by the respected Marist polling firm, interviewed 1,600 adults between May 10-14. In a shock result, 74% of adults said that freedom of religion should take precedence over government laws. A solid majority of adults all felt that religious providers should be able to opt out of providing abortions, contraceptives or sterilizations. The poll should send shudders through the Obama campaign.
