The U.S. Supreme Court, in its recent decision favoring Hobby Lobby, overtly discriminated against that company’s lawfully protected workers in the issue of religion. This is a ruling you would expect from that infamous tribunal, the Spanish Inquisition. Horrifically, religious persecution is still alive and has friends sitting on the big bench.

It may come as a surprise to my friend among the religionists that only individuals are under the protective mandates of the U.S. Constitution and that blanket never included corporations. All corporate bodies are under a code of conduct enforced by civil authorities protecting workers’ rights.

How ugly that some of this court are to be addressed as “Honorable” when they dishonor its secular raison d’être.
