I am currently at work on a few hundred words on the Hobby Lobby case for the American Historical Associations Perspectives blog. It will probably appear in a day or two.
In the meantime, here are some of interesting takes on yesterday’s Supreme Court decision:
Emma Green at The Atlantic: “The Supreme Court Isn’t Waging a War on Women in Hobby Lobby.
Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Church is “elated.”
John Dilulio at Brookings: “Hobby Lobby: The Real Religious Exemption Fight if yet to Come”
It might be good at this point to return to Patrick Deneen, “Even if Hobby Lobby Wins, We Lose.” This is the best think I have read on the case, hands down.
Robert George at First Things: “What Hobby Lobby Means“
Michelle Goldberg at The Nation: “Alito’s ‘Hobby Lobby’ Opinion is Dangerous and Discriminatory”
David Gans at The New Republic: “The Roberts Court Thinks Corporations Have More Rights Than You Do”
Jeffrey Toobin at The New Yorker: “The Trap in the Supreme Court’s ‘Narrow’ Decisions“
The History Guys at Backstory on corporate personhood.
For what I know, this case bothers me because now we are saying a corporation can operate much like a church; what is to prevent discriminatory actions by businesses whom will now use this to say it violates their beliefs? Can they discriminate against an unprotected class of people like gays? A year ago the Court ruled that a government office can open with a prayer. But, if that is true, what if I am Muslim, then who do we pray to? How about atheist? Hence, the litmus test of the court seems very muddy.
Looking forward to reading your post.
