Becket Fund Becomes More Proactive In Religious Liberty Advocacy

The Huffington Post today reports on a new activism at the Becket Fund, traditionally a religious liberty advocacy group known for its defense of religious liberty across faith groups.  Under the new leadership of Wall Street trader William P. Mumma, the organization has expanded its fundraising and become more proactive in seeking out potential litigants when a religious liberty issue arises. The Becket Fund has raised its profile by bringing several lawsuits challenging the Obama administration's contraception coverage mandate under the Affordable Health Care Act. (See prior posting.)
