    Another public school educated dumbass that has no clue what the Constitution says. Let me help you out dim.
    1st amendment; Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

    No mention of ONLY in church. If congress makes a law that prohibits you from practicing your religion, ANYWHERE, that is unconstituional, period.

    We understand. We just don't care. NOBODY'S religion should matter more than anyone else's.

    And FYI, that's not a fascist tenet, a government that's blind with respect to religion is of the Liberal Faith.

    It's a bit of a stretch to call refusing to offer birth control coverage to employees "practicing your religion".

    That’s not at issue.

    How exactly does the ACA compel the owners themselves of Hobby Lobby to use contraceptives?

    Requiring employers to provide comprehensive health insurance coverage as a form of compensation which may or may not include the administering of contraceptive therapies in no way directly effects the owners, who are free to use contraceptives or not.

    What an employer’s employee does with his compensation – regardless its form – is the employee’s business and the employee’s business alone.

    It's not like most of them care about the Constitution, anyway.

    If Karl Rove isn't going to court over it, we can all be satisfied.

    That exact same argument has been made against paying for wars we don't believe in too. For Eons.

    You simpleton. Any law that makes an exemption for a religion, is respecting an establishment. No one is forcing anyone to take birth control. The law provides a baseline of what is to be provided. That's it.

    Do Quakers taxes, in part, support military interventions? Is the tax dollars of Jews used, in part, to subsidize pig farms? Are the tax dollars of Muslims, in part, used to negotiate shell fishing management?

    You're a fucking nitwit.
