Everyone should say a prayer of thanks for the positive outcome of today’s U. S. Supreme Court ruling for Hobby Lobby.
As you may expect, the flaming radical, second-wave feminist and Jewish, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had a hissy fit, writing a 19 page dissenting opinion that went on at length about how this was a setback for WOMEN!
Once again, this liberated woman proves that she cares nothing for religious freedom NOR does she care for the babies aborted by the abortifacient drugs Obamacare mandated be distributed by all employers under penalty of millions of dollars of fines. Hobby Lobby alone faced a $1.3 MILLION dollar fine per DAY if they did not comply with the mandate.
The decision was 5-4. Joining Ginsburg in her dissent was another Jewish, radical, second-wave feminist, Elena Kagan; another radical, second-wave feminist female, Catholic, Sonia Sotomayor and the always wacky liberal leftist and Jewish, Stephen Breyer.
Our male heroes, as usual, who are all Catholic, were Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts and Sam Alito.
Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is also a Catholic, is inevitably the swing vote. This time he swung the right way, joining the other men.
Justice Sam Alito wrote the majority opinion and tore into Ginsburg’s dissenting opinion when he wrote, “
“As this description of our reasoning shows, our holding is very specific. We do not hold, as the principal dissent alleges, that for-profit corporations and other commercial enterprises can “opt out of any law (saving only tax laws) they judge incompatible with their sincerely held religious beliefs.” Post, at 1 (opinion of GINSBURG, J.). Nor do we hold, as the dissent implies, that such corporations have free rein to take steps that impose “disadvantages . . . on others” or that require “the general public [to] pick up the tab.” Post, at 1–2. And we certainly do not hold or suggest that “RFRA demands accommodation of a for-profit corporation’s religious beliefs no matter the impact that accommodation may have on . . . thousands of women employed by Hobby Lobby.” Post, at 2.1 The effect of the HHS-created accommodation on the women employed by Hobby Lobby and the other companies involved in these cases would be precisely zero. Under that accommodation, these women would still be entitled to all FDA-approved contraceptives without cost sharing.”
Thank you Dear Lord for guiding these faithful men in their decision to uphold the religious liberty upon which America was founded, and by which, America has become the greatest, and kindest, country on earth.
