5 to 4 decision (which means that C.J. Roberts was willing to let principle and law prevail over consensus in this case, contrary to some of his detractors - of course, it might have been horse-trading for a less than favorable opinion for Hobby Lobby, but that's not highly likely since the 4 progs/libs didn't join this opinion).


The opinion in the case can be downloaded directly from the S. Court's website here:  http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/13pdf/11-681_j426.pdf

Don't know just how robust this is or how far it extends, but it is at least somewhat of a victory.

"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
