The Hobby Lobby case, which will determine whether corporations have religious freedom and thus the right to deny their workers contraception despite the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act, is being heard by the Supreme Court. Read what Truthdig's Mark Fiore has to say about it and watch his latest animation, "Religious Liberty for Corporations."
After corporations got free speech rights with Citizens United, they're now on their way to getting freedom of religion. With the "Hobby Lobby" case before the Supreme Court, the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act may fall and corporations may get the freedom to worship. Corporations are rapidly becoming real, live humans!
The case before the Supreme Court is about a couple of for-profit corporations wanting to foist their religious views on their employees. This is not about an individual human wanting to practice their religion as they see fit, this is about an inanimate corporation wanting to impose specific morals on employees. If corporations get religion, just think of the things they could do with it!
Why stop with your run-of-the-mill religions that don't like birth control? Let's dive back into the days of the Aztecs. What if a corporation worshipped like the Aztecs and demanded human sacrifice? (Okay, more than they already do demand sacrifice of humans.) I can't see how this argument will stand up to legal challenge but it's looking like it may do just that.
