Supremes: Obama Can’t Force Companies to Pay for Birth Control

Congratulations to Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp, first for filing lawsuits to protect their religious freedom, and second for defeating the Obama Administration before the Supreme Court.

The courageous owners of these two companies objected to being forced to pay for forms of birth control which can have prominent interceptive (early abortive) mechanisms of action.  In a 5 to 4 decision, in which Justice Roberts and the conservatives upheld religious freedom, (and naturally the leftists did not), the two companies are excused from paying for birth control which people could most certainly provide for themselves by other means.  At issue were Plan B, Ella, and the indwelling coathangers otherwise known as IUDs.

This decision appears to be protective of closely held, for-profit corporations, but appears to  exclude non-profit entities such as Little Sisters of the Poor.

Naturally the idea of religious freedom for Christians is causing the lefties to curse, swear, and threaten lives and property of their ideological opponents.  Violence has always been integral to leftism.   Those people are anything but compassionate.
