The Supreme Court has once again shown that it will protect religious freedom of some Americans but trample on the rights of women as well as the religious freedom of a growing number of Americans (both believers and unbelievers) who want to be free from religion. Today’s endorsement of religion tells us several things about the state of our union:
1. It tells us that a minority’s morality can be imposed on others. If corporations are people, I can only imagine how many other companies will expect to exercise their right to “sincerely held religious beliefs.” Moreover, what about those who believe in prayer instead of medical treatment? Will prayer become a substitute for drugs or procedures that employees need?
