EWTN Press Release: EWTN Hearing on Feb. 4th

Media Advisory: EWTN Hearing on February 4th  
Nun’s Network fights for religious freedom from HHS mandate

Washington, D.C.  Founded by cloistered nuns, Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN)’s religious freedom case will be heard on February 4th (see video). The Becket Fund represents EWTN, which is being forced to either violate its faith or pay millions in IRS fines. On July 1, 2014, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals took the rare step of granting emergency relief to EWTN. A Catholic network whose sole purpose is to spread the word of God, EWTN must fight for the right to remain faithful to the very religious message it advances.

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is a non-profit, public-interest law firm dedicated to protecting the free expression of all religious traditions. For over 20 years, it has defended clients of all faiths, includingBuddhists, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Native Americans, Sikhs, and Zoroastrians. Its recent cases include two major Supreme Court victories: the landmark ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, and the 9-0 ruling in Hosanna-Tabor v. EEOC, which The Wall Street Journal called one of “the most important religious liberty cases in a half century."
