"...prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

This is a dangerous precedent. 

A federal judge has just told a family that they have to go against their beliefs by offering the morning after pill and the week after pill to their employees.*  The family believes that preventing the implantation of the embryo is as bad as abortion. 

The federal government is telling them, through Obamacare, that private individuals' rights to act on their beliefs is not Constitutionally protected, despite the clear language of the first amendment: "Congress shall make no law...regarding the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

That does not apply to churches alone.  That, despite the cowardly** idiot judge's interpretations, also applies to individuals, and individuals who own businesses. 

Were I the Greene family, I would either immediately divest my family holdings in any company employing enough people to fall under Obamacare's unConstitutional restrictions, or I'd cut each and every employee back to 26 hours per week. 

I'd expect that the next target will be individuals' rights to worship as they please (with the exception of Islamofacists), and then the churches.

That's the usual order of actions taken by Marxist governments against those who believe in a higher power than government.

*I disagree with their beliefs about the morning after pill--preventing implantation.  However, the week after pill is a bit more problematic.  An embryo implants between three and five days after fertilization, on average.  And after that sucker's implanted, it's a baby.  After that, it's murder, not contraception--but is still between a woman and her conscience.

**The judge's excuse is that the plaintiffs didn't cite any court cases where the "free exercise thereof" applied to a business, instead of a religious organization.

  1. I think if it were me and I had money put away for my family for a good long while... I think I would just shut down.... with no notice.

    Screw 'em all.

    At the very least, I would most definitely cut everyone's hours, including corporate management just to make sure I got every last Obama voter in my company!

    1. Of course they wonder. They can't comprehend that anyone might think that they don't know what's best for everyone but them.
