    Code of Conduct

    Hobby Lobby, SCOTUS, religious exemptions, and... opportunity

    Liberals should be seeing not a defeat, but an open door, in the recent SCOTUS ruling granting religious exemptions to for-profit businesses, regardless of how narrowly defined. Companies are now going to be trying to shuffle off costs they don't want to pay onto the government if they can concoct the least plausible religious grounds.

    A creative congresscritter would be delighted. In fact, he would be laughing with delight as he directed his staff to cobble together legislation to allow any company that objects on any moral ground at all to whatever kind of medical coverage to shove that over to the government. Of course, that bill would be called the "Relief From Religious Burdening Act", since by taking all those things out of the hands of businesses it would put them into a single government program where all citizens would be covered, regardless. And anyone with any religious views at all who owns a business could just make a call and object to some provision on religious grounds, and Voila! that coverage would go over to the government, not just for that company's employees, but for all employees of all companies.

    Anyone want to object to vaccinations on religious grounds? Boom! -- the government now will cover all vaccinations. How about joint replacements? eye surgery? Just think of every little thing any religious people have ever objected to, and imagine a single program covering them all equally for all citizens.

    Liberals should be cheering at the opportunity this has provided, and should get busy with this legislation, intended to free all religious (and non-religious) consciences of the worry about having to cover any medical procedure they might be concerned over.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    I wish it were just about coverage for birth control.

    But the only opportunities that I'm seeing is corporations shifting more and more of the burden off their balance sheets and onto the public....and as long as the US cannot wean the warfare queens off gutting the budget with endless and obscene spending on military equipment and global wars of adventure....the public will not see universal coverage provided as the floodgates open and every closely held corporation suddenly gets 'religion'.

    The most disastrous thing is that the US now has the equivalent of the ayatollah council as the courts and Supreme Court become the arbiters of what constitutes a sincerely held religious belief.

    This is one of the most disastrous weeks I can recall.

    I'm confused. Much of Hobby Lobby's merchandise is from China - where abortion is compulsory.

    In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

    Here's an article about that:
