This is a joke. Corporations have religious rights? How about the rights of their employees? This stuff makes me sick. I guess the religious right and Fox “News” are smugly singing “Kumbaya” right about now.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1802: “… I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.”
I think the Supreme Court just peed all over that.
Woody Allen nailed this sentiment in his 1986 film Hannah and Her Sisters when Max Von Sydow’s character says, “If Jesus came back and saw what’s going on in his name, he’d never stop throwing up.”
