Washington, July 8, 2020
WASHINGTON D.C. – On Wednesday, July 8, 2020, U.S. Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX-14) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling on Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania.
"It is comforting when we see another branch of government answer the call during times of great uncertainty. Today’s Supreme Court decision in favor of the Little Sisters of the Poor should be celebrated. We welcome the clear majority (7-2) and the opinion of Associate Justice Clarence Thomas. While government may be called upon in times of crisis, it should NOT make employers with sincerely held religious beliefs fund practices they fundamentally disagree with. The Little Sisters of the Poor decision affirming religious freedom is a victory rooted in the founding principles of our great nation.
