Prof. Carl H. Esbeck

Prof. Carl Esbeck, an expert on religious liberty and church–state relations, was recently quoted in Christianity Today. The article, “Government Backs Down on Contraceptive Mandate,” focuses on a suit brought by Wheaton College and Belmont Abbey College against the Department of Health and Human Services, objecting to the fact that the federal government requires contraceptive coverage in employee health insurance plans.

Prof. Esbeck notes that, while the colleges won a stay as to any penalties as things now stand, “there is no promise that the new rule [promised in a few months] will take care of Wheaton or Belmont Abbey… The only promise is that the existing rule won’t be applied.”
