Supreme Court Says, "No Birth Control for You"

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby holding that a closely held corporation can impose its religious beliefs on women by denying them health care coverage for contraception. 

Next comes the denial of health care coverage for people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, denial of coverage for vaccinations, denial of coverage for blood transfusions, and denial of coverage for breast cancer screenings.

The concept of religious freedom is already a bloody mess in this country. Religious groups interpret "religious freedom" to mean not only their right to practice their beliefs, but also the power to impose those beliefs on others. 

The First Amendment's protection of religious freedom was never a mandate to impose beliefs on others, until now. 

Not to worry though -- Viagra prescriptions and penis pumps will still be covered by your religious employer.
