OK, I think I get it now (Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby). If I work for a company that you own, you can make decisions based on your religious beliefs that will affect my health care. I suppose those with fundamentalist/absolutist religious beliefs think that’s a good thing. Personally, I am appalled.
As a firm believer in religious freedom, I say, believe whatever you want, but don’t try to force your beliefs on me. If you do, and the Supreme Court says you can, then your religion trumps mine, and that is just plain wrong.
When will religious people — apparently including five members of the Supreme Court — accept that religious freedom is a personal thing and that no one should ever have the right to force their particular mythology into anyone else’s life? Go Taliban! It appears you’ve won.
