Supreme Arrogance


Gotta love this:

Hi folks! I'm on vaCay living it up party boy style in NYC. #PRIDE But I have to chime in on what I consider to be the worst SCOTUS decision in a very long time. Rather than being a court judging laws SCOTUS has now appointed itself into the role of Grand Inquisitors, rooting out which religious doctrines are "deeply held" and which are worthy of circumventing the laws the rest of us have to follow.

To quote the Notorious RBG:

Would the exemption…extend to employers with religiously grounded objections to blood transfusions (Jehovah's Witnesses); antidepressants (Scientologists); medications derived from pigs, including anesthesia, intravenous fluids, and pills coated with gelatin (certain Muslims, Jews, and Hindus); and vaccinations[?]…Not much help there for the lower courts bound by today's decision."
Funny how the deeply held, worthy of exceptions from our laws, beliefs about contraception seem to EXACTLY match the religions followed by the justices who sided with Hobby Lobby! It's almost as if they believe theirs is the one true faith and the only path to righteousness and that they have the right to enforce that view from the bench. Weird.

OK, back to the men, or women, or whatever!

PS. Her milkshake brings all the boys to the yard!

Hobby Lobby had the better arguments.

If hobby lobby was really so antiabortion they wouldn't do business with China. They're hypocrites of the highest order.

You mean "his milkshake brings all the boys to the yard." That is a photo of a guy, not a girl, well maybe a post op guy who is now a girl.

To paraphrase the late great Notorious BIG, this guy / girl gets more butt than an ashtray.
