Justice Ginsburg Raked That Idiot Majority Over the Coals

She knows better than anybody else this ludicrous Hobby Lobby decision has opened the proverbial Pandora's box and basically legalizes wholesale discrimination against protected classes in the name of "religious freedom."

This isn't about contraception, as much as the court majority wants you to think. For example, LGBT groups can just about hang it up to sue businesses who refuse to bake cakes for same-sex weddings and the like under the guise of civil rights protections. That's dead now with this ruling.

Ginsburg opens with a bang, immediately describing the decision as one that will have sweeping consequences:

In a decision of startling breadth, the Court holds that commercial enterprises, including corporations, along with partnerships and sole proprietorships, can opt out of any law (saving only tax laws) they judge incompatible with their sincerely held religious beliefs.

Hey, forget the Civil Rights Act if it dares to challenge a business owner's religious beliefs.

This ruling is such a pile of shit, it boggles the mind.
