    Icon Fr. Sean Lauds Hobby Lobby Decision
    STEUBENVILLE, OH—Franciscan University of Steubenville lauded today's U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. as progress in the ongoing fight for religious liberty in America. Father Sean O. Sheridan, TOR, president of Franciscan University, said, "We still need to evaluate the decision, but our initial reaction is positive. The U.S. Supreme Court has affirmed today the fundamental right to free exercise of religion guaranteed by the Constitution. Much work remains to be done to protect the religious freedom of all citizens from the ill-conceived HHS mandate, but this decision in favor of the owners of Hobby Lobby is certainly progress."
