    Good plan, lets us get that up to SCOTUS so they can fuck the right wing discrimination thing again. For a bunch of people who were bitching because their own rhetoric is too stupid for SCOTUS to uphold they sure seem eager to bring their discrimination before the courts.

    Care to show me where in the Constitution you have a right to birth control paid for by someone else?

    How is discrimination to insist on my rights?

    To me this is an incredibly stupid ruling. In essence it says that an owners religious belief can trump the law. If the said owners religions beliefs are such that he does not believe in medical care at all (Christian Scientist) is he then allowed to disregard the law completely?

    Sounds like the same principle to me. I don't think this will fly on it's own merits. Some judges, Scalia type, may try this route simply because they don't like the healthcare law.

    You sound like an incredible piece of shit, defending the government should have the right to force people to do things that violates their deeply held beliefs. Are you a fag? Why are you so fucked up?

    If a business owner's religious belief denies medical care, the business owner should not have to provide medical insurance at all. Even having a law mandating insurance is wrong. Insurance has always been a perk, never a right.
