Hobby Lobby and Religoius Freedom

freedom4While the ruling is painfully limited and many of the most important questions about religious freedom were left unanswered, the ruling in Hobby Lobby v. Burwell does fall on the side of religious freedom.  The question was whether a closely held corporation can follow the religious tenants of its owner and exercise rights of conscience against a government required insurance mandate.  The answer was, “Yes.”    But the solution is a compromised solution in which the government will pay for the mandated items which still have to be offered by the company.  In a triumph for those who love shell games, the money used to pay for the objectionable provisions, in this case, abortions and birth control, will still come from the employers indirectly.  Just because the government prints money does not mean they have their own money:  they use ours!  More here:  http://www.lifenews.com/2014/06/30/supreme-court-rules-obama-admin-cant-make-hobby-lobby-obey-pro-abortion-hhs-mandate/  Also here:  http://www.ijreview.com/2014/06/152229-breaking-benchmark-hobby-lobby-case-supreme-court-decides/
