HARSHING THE NARRATIVE: The Supreme Court Isn’t Waging a War on Women in Hobby Lobby.
Responses to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby are a study in contradictions. It’s “a landmark victory for religious liberty” that gives bosses “license to harm their female employees in the name of religion.” A “struggle for the First Amendment has been vindicated,” while the law is being “used as a sword to thwart anti-discrimination laws.” All the rhetoric sets up the same dichotomy: religious liberty vs. women’s reproductive rights. How did two kinds of freedom come to be seen as mutually exclusive?
The lefties have really gone crazy on this one. I love all the hate-tweets to ScotusBlog under the false impression that it’s an official Supreme Court blog. . . .
