that was a perfectly legitimate question by the Justice and this dope should stop trying to grandstand on it.

One man's "religious freedom" to not provide employees with contraception in their employee benefits package, is another man's "religious freedom" to mutilate his daughter's genitals, kill her for being raped, or engage in a polygamous marriage.

The Southern Baptist faith supported slavery, later segregation. The South was prejudiced against  Catholics and Jews.

The descendant and similar denominations have no standing in my mind to dictate national civil laws.

Well, the New Mexico Supreme Court already said that the price of citizenship is giving up one's religious freedom.

I assume this to mean the religious freedom of Christians but not muslims.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

The Pope schooled Obama on religious freedom and Obamacare. Think he listened? Obama's Papal photo op will fail him.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
