“Obama Bullies Hobby Lobby All The Way To Supreme Court”
Sort of reminds you of the old joke, “why did the man climb the mountain” — although the traditional punchline, “because he can,” gets replaced here by the more subtle “because He can.”
Time to admit what we all know to be the case: If you are going to try to restrict religious liberty by decree, and then use the instrumentalities of your police state to enforce that theft of conscience, than you are making of yourself a god, presuming to control a natural right protected from government under the First Amendment. And that’s what the progressives believe, nearly to a man: that the State is God, and so has the authority to make such decrees and police them for apostacy. And anybody who doesn’t accept that new reality — that progressive paradigm shift — can worship their golden calf, so long as it doesn’t interfere with the designs of the State.
– And provided they pay taxes on it, and then after they die, do so again or forfeit it to the government. Because the State demands its tithes.
And John Roberts has shown he’s willing to make sure they can demand them. So long as his “legacy” is one of comity and compromise.
