While the expected decision from the Supreme Court on the Hobby Lobby case against the Obama administration has not yet come down, it is good to consider two decisions which were decided unanimously against the Obama supported side. The first simply reestablishes that this is not a country which favors dictatorship.
Despite his propensity to behave like a tyrant and to ignore the separation and balance of powers structured into the government, as he repeatedly announces that he will do, the Supreme Court has fenced in some of Barak Obama’s appointments which he said were made during a Congressional recess (three days does not a recess make, says the court). This is good news to those whom the president attacks, especially Roman Catholics who are constantly in his crosshairs. Likewise the unanimous rejection of ‘buffer zones’ around abortion clinics to eliminate protests or sidewalk counseling of potential customers (a VERY effective work of mercy as mothers are persuaded not to abort their children) is yet another setback for the Obama idea of justice.

Even the Federal Appealate Court decision in Utah yesterday, while not going in a favorable direction for Catholic interests, further isolates the nature of the problem and will likely be appealed. If one way to resolve a crisis is first to heighten it, there may be a hidden silver lining in this decision.
