The shortest and most perfect summation of the Hobby Lobby ruling ever articulated.

"Conservative business owners don't have to obey laws if they don't feel like it."


It's not hyperbole. It's the literal fact of the ruling.

And since there is no possible basis for such a thing in law or ethics of any kind, it's null and void as a ruling of law.

As such, the Executive branch should continue to enforce the contraception requirement. Let conservatives escalate their judicial coup to impeachment proceedings and see what that gets them, if they're so inclined.

Glad you're here! You sure boiled it down! That's it - at its very most basic. This one went directly into my quotes file!

5. I might also add

that since all of the justices who voted in favor of Hobby Lobby were Roman Catholic * that the Pope is allowed to nullify the laws of the United States.




*to the best of my knowledge based on some quick research.

7. That's what they've been shooting for, all along.

Free to usurp the rights of others, free of consequences.

8. That might serve as a summary of the RFRA.

 

You write that "there is no possible basis for such a thing in law or ethics of any kind...." Unfortunately, there is at least some basis in law. The Court relied on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which IMO goes too far in granting religious exemptions to laws of general applicability.

9. Wait til a Muslim or liberal business owner refuses coverage...

Then things will get interesting.

10. Perfectly correct

Hobby Lobby is a license to discriminate, a license to never have to comply with laws you don't like. It is absolute madness.
