Let The Religiosity Wars Commence

Now that the Supremes have ruled that we can be a Theocracy the only question is what cult will rule the Theocracy?? The owner of Hobby Lobby that brought the suit to the Supreme Court is Pentecostal, but the justices that gave him the green light are Roman Catholic. I'm sure there are others in the mix too because several others were involved in the suit. It'll be interesting to see which version of religion will prevail in the years to come as the Theocracy takes shape.

The ironic thing is that over 200 years ago we fought for independence from a country that used religion to rule.

 Now that religion can trump a federal law (which the ACA is), state laws don't mean shit.  I'm willing to bet there are some Mormons thinking they can now have multiple wives and the law can't do anything about it as religion trumps any law. Maybe when a Muslim says the Koran allows him 4 wives, that'll be a different story. But, but, you have the wrong religion!!

Any business can disregard any law or regulation by whining "Religious Freedom!!" I don't need to provide safety equipment, god will keep the workers safe and if not, maybe they weren't pious enough!! Pay extra for overtime?? My religion forbids that.
