The Supreme Court saved the Hobby Lobby/Conestoga Wood case for the very last and the ruling was 5-4. It is scary that basic religious, speech rights should have been such a squeaker. The court ruled that companies do not have to pay for contraception/abortion coverage. It is assumed that the Obama administration will step in to pay, so now we’ll all be paying! Anyway, it would have been an historic blow if the case had gone against our side.
I think MCFL’s amicus brief, citing the history of religious liberty in the colonies, which was the basis for the views of our founding fathers, helped to win this case. Again, we are very grateful to Dwight Duncan and the law students who helped him write the brief!
Now what will we do with ourselves on Monday and Thursday mornings?
