Frank Granata: Religious persecution still alive

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.

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.
