    And this is not the only one, the 9 to zip on recess appointments had to be far worse.

    The Supreme Court said that the government can pay for all the contraceptives (if it wants to), but it can’t force Hobby Lobby to pay. As thrashings in the woodshed go, this one is more like a having your hand slapped with a pigeon feather.

    Yes, the recess appointment ruling was far more stinging as far as executive power goes. The Hobby Lobby ruling was much more narrowly aimed at uppity women.

    It was the concept of separation of church and state that was taken to the woodshed by five out-of-touch justices.

    Hope no one works for a “closely held company” that doesn’t believe in vaccinations, surgery, etc.
    Personally, I have a strongly held belief in hour long lunch breaks and 4 day workweeks.

    Remember, this wasn’t about being able to stick to religious principles. It was about sticking ONLY to those religious principles that are shared by the Catholic members of the Supreme Court. That is, contraceptives. They specifically stressed that it doesn’t apply to any other religious principles, for some constitutional reason that they were somehow unable to articulate.

    Well, I own a business. I don’t believe in doctors at all, nor vaccinations, or medications. Do I have the right to determine that my employees should have no access to health care? How about if I say that it’s against my religion? Or do I have to say it’s against the religion of the corporation I founded?

    “Do I have the right to determine that my employees should have no access to health care?”

    .
    No, but you do have the right not to pay for, as many companies in the past have decided. The market will determine if you can attract the employees you need with the compensation package you are prepared to offer.

    The Supreme Court should have been taken to the woodshed when they elected Bush.

    Too bad we don’t listen to them and are so busy try to fit their words into our personal prejudices.

    “And this is not the only one, the 9 to zip on recess appointments had to be far worse.”

    It is a commonly held belief that the appointments were done when the Senate was in recess. Technically (the operant word here) the Senate was not in recess when the appointments were made and are therefore not valid.

    “It was the concept of separation of church and state that was taken to the woodshed by five out-of-touch justices.”

    One must also take into account that that Amendment I of the Constitution states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
    religion, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF;…”. (caps are mine) Scotus must walk a very fine line when it comes rulings on that part of the Constitution.

    “It is a commonly held belief that the appointments were done when the Senate was in recess. Technically (the operant word here) the Senate was not in recess when the appointments were made and are therefore not valid”.

    I think everybody knows that, I am not sure what your point is here.
