A Children's Treasury Of Thoughtful Reactions To The Hobby Lobby Decision
We're all still reeling over the awful Hobby Lobby decision today, but thank heavens, some of our great thinkers have already weighed in. For instance, Rick Santorum is positively frothy over the decision, even to the point of losing his prepositions:
SCOTUS restored a vital piece our Constitution today [sic]. It’s a great day for all Americans!
We didn't actually notice a part of Our Constitution that said, "Hey, go ahead and tell your employees how they're supposed to do sex," but we'll admit we haven't read Rick Santorum's copy. More Big Thoughts ahead!
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Canuckistan) issued a statement celebrating the restoration of religious freedom to corporations that never had it before:
“Today the Supreme Court handed our nation a landmark victory for religious liberty. The decision affirms that Americans, contrary to what the Obama Administration attempted to impose, have a right to live and work in accordance to their conscience and can’t be forced to surrender their religious freedom once they open a business."
Darn that Obama, making a the owners of Hobby Lobby spend money on slut pills, when anybody knows that they were only interested in making money by investing in companies that sell slut pills.
Feculent Cylon Weaselbot Ben Shapiro sure wishes the Supreme Court wouldn't let the wrong kind of Jews have opinions about ... well, anything, really:
Fuuny, when we're itching, it's usually because we've been near Ben Shapiro.
On the other hand, a few Very Bad Liberals hoped that Hobby Lobby stores would "burn to the ground" -- and a couple even said someone should do it -- and the nine fulltime employees of Twitchy were there to pout and worry about what this world is coming to:
Ex-Congresscritter-to-be Steve Stockman, whose Senate run fizzled and died, had several thoughtful insights:
We like Stockman's plea for diversity of thought there. You know, like how he just loves the creative views of Ted "Suck on my machine gun" Nugent.
From Elizabeth Warren, we have this attempt to eradicate thoughts and beliefs that differ from hers:
Excuse us, Senator Professor, but those are deeply-held vague moral objections.
We also had this astute political analysis from Bethany Mandel, an actual blogger for Commentary Magazine:
Haha, it is so true! Everyone who uses contraception will become sterile, and the Bethany Mandels of the world will breed a conservative wonderland into being.
And Elizabeth Plank of .MicNews seems to have identified the root of the problem:
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
