The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty – the group that won the Hobby Lobby case and is representing the Little Sisters of the Poor – said in a statement that it is grateful the Supreme Court plans to weigh in.

“The Little Sisters spend their lives taking care of the elderly poor – that is work our government should applaud, not punish,” Mark Rienzi, senior counsel of the Becket Fund, said in a statement. “Nor should the government be allowed to say that the Sisters aren’t ‘religious enough’ to merit the exemption that churches and other religious ministries have received.”
