The Ridiculous Future Awfulness That Hobby Lobby And The Supreme Court Have Created
Hobby Lobby is suing for the right to prevent their health insurance from covering things like birth control. The Supreme Court (as of March 2014) is hearing oral arguments on the matter. So here's a fake clip from the future to explain why this just might be a bad idea.Update 6/30/14: Well, the Supreme Court went ahead and declared that privately held corporations are religious people. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote a scathing dissent of the decision, saying, "The absence of such precedent is just what one would expect, for the exercise of religion is characteristic of natural persons, not artificial legal entities."
Obviously, it won't go to this cartoonish extreme, but the point is clear. And awful.
