Supreme Court already expanding Hobby Lobby ruling

Posted By on Thu, Jul 3, 2014 at 6:05 PM

The women's sex organs-obsessed U.S. Supreme Court majority has already broken faith with its brand-new Hobby Lobby ruling and given further protection from U.S. law to institutions that don't believe women should have contraceptive coverage in health insurance policies. The women on the Supreme Court are furious.

The court won't even require a Christian college to fill out a form that gives people covered by its insurance an alternate way to receive — at no cost to the institution — comprehensive health coverage. An unsigned opinion said a letter is OK, no form required.

The court’s order was brief, provisional and unsigned, but it drew a furious reaction from the three female justices — Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan — who said the court had betrayed a promise it made on Monday in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, which involved for-profit corporations.

“Those who are bound by our decisions usually believe they can take us at our word,” the dissent, written by Justice Sotomayor, said. “Not so today.”

This trickle will become a torrent.

Soon enough it will be clear what the Catholic male majority's idea of religious freedom is:

Freedom to impose THEIR  religion on somebody else.
