The USSC is Completely Out of Control

The majority literally makes shit up, and it didn't stop with the ludicrous anti-labor ruling. Now they have basically legalized sex discrimination against women under the guise of "religious freedom." What a complete and total load of shit.

The Hobby Lobby is a BUSINESS, NOT a religious organization. Now any stupid employer can justify discriminatory treatment against women--or any other group--by hiding behind the fig leaf of religion. Pay women less or don't allow them to apply for so-called "male" jobs? Hey, perfectly legal now if you claim it's your religious belief.

As for health care, I am sure the Hobby Lobby will pay for Viagara and other medications that are exclusively for men.

This ain't about abortion and contraception--this is about discrimination against women which is ILLEGAL, at least until this stupid, corrupt court majority re-legalized it.

To sum it up, five male justices ruled that thousands of female employees should rightfully be subjected to the whims of their employers. That women can be denied a benefit that they already pay for and is guaranteed by federal law. That contraception is not essential healthcare. That corporations can pray. That the corporate veil can be manipulated to suit the needs of the corporation. That bosses can cynically choose à la carte what laws they want to comply with and which laws they do not. Each specific finding opens a door to a new form of discrimination and unprecedented corporate power. If you think this ruling won’t affect you, you haven’t been paying attention. If you think these corporations are going to stop at birth control, you’re kidding yourself.
