Another big week for Obamacare in the courts « Hot Air

Another big week for Obamacare in the courts « Hot Air: "Next week will be a big one for Obamacare in the courts. In Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby, the Supreme Court will hear argument on whether the contraception mandate violates the religious freedom of businesses and business owners. An anti-religion outcome in the case would forever alter the relationship between the government and believers, essentially requiring that people with sincere religious beliefs give up their rights to religious practice when they operate a business.

Victory for Hobby Lobby’s religious owners is not assured. The Circuit Courts of Appeals to consider the question issued decidedly mixed decisions, with one court glibly holding that for-profit corporations simply cannot exercise religion at all and that religious owners are distinct and wholly separate from the businesses they run. But counsel for the Becket Fund, which is litigating the Hobby Lobby case, points out that “for-profit doesn’t mean no conscience.”"
