The U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision to strike down the "Obamacare" birth control mandate for closely held corporations with religious objections led some media organizations to make mythical claims that the decision will cause horrible outcomes. Here are three of those myths.

(CNSNews.com) – Within 24 hours of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that the Obama administration was wrong to impose its contraceptive and abortion drug regulation on small companies that oppose it on religious grounds, two federal courts granted emergency injunctions to seven non-profit groups that also oppose the rule.
Christian News Service/NICAEA poll finds 79% say biblical accuracy is important
OXFORD, Miss, June 10, 2014 |Christian News Service| --The so-called "Year of the Bible" has Christian moviegoers packing movie theaters across the country. Films like the SON OF GOD, MOMS NIGHT OUT and GOD'S NOT DEAD racked up a combined 218 million dollars in ticket sales in 2014.
A new survey, however, reveals the faithful won't be duped by movies that are Christian in name only.
According to a survey of 1200 respondents from Oxford-based Christian News Service and conducted by American Insights, 79% of those polled say "historical and biblical accuracy is important."
Two-thirds (66%) of all adults and 74% of Christians (who make up 63% of all survey respondents) are likely to see a movie related to God.
America could be experiencing a decline of literalism and the rise of secularism, according to one interpretation of a recent Gallup Poll.
The poll, which measured Americans’ beliefs about the Bible, found that 28 percent of Americans believe the Bible is the literal word of God — close to the lowest point ever found in the survey. About 40 percent of Americans said the same thing in the late 1970s.
