Another lawsuit challenges the coverage mandate

The happy warriors for religious liberty at the Becket Fund have filed a second lawsuit -- this time on behalf of an Evangelical Christian institution, Colorado Christian University, challenging the interim final rule that requires employers to provide coverage for, among other things, contraception and abortion-causing drugs.  The Maureen Dowds of the world want to frame the debate about exemptions from the mandate as a narrowly Catholic concern (and, really, not even a concern for most Catholics), recognizing that framing it this way goes a long way, in many people's minds, toward winning it.  But, the issues is bigger than Catholics-and-contraception.
