SUPREME COURT HOBBY LOBBY DECISION MOVES AMERICA TOWARDS A RELIGIOUS VETO OVER OUR PUBLIC LAWS
The United States Supreme Court has ruled 5-4 that Hobby Lobby can opt-out of certain aspects of the Affordable Care Act because of religious objections held by the people who own the company.
In dissent to this decision, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the following--- The court’s expansive notion of corporate personhood invites for-profit entities to seek religion-based exemptions from regulations they deem offensive to their faiths.”
It seems sometimes that America is about having babies, not paying to educate them, denying people health care, paying cruddy wages and killing people with guns.
It's all simply God's ( tax-exempt) will.
If we each incorporate ourselves, will we then be able to exempt ourselves from laws we do not like?
Do you think that you as an employee could tell your employer which corporate polices you find morally objectionable, and then count on the Supreme Court to back up your freedom of conscience?
At the bottom line, it seems we may be heading to a situation where our laws will have to be vetted by people holding a narrow set of conservative religious views to see if they will be allowed to stand for all people.
It is up to each of us to speak against and work against this frightening new direction in our nation.

The idea of corporations having religious beliefs is absurd. I mean, it's Lewis Carroll-type material.
