NGLCC On Burwell v. Hobby Lobby: Connecting The Dots Comments (0)

Justin Nelson, co-founder and president of The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, reacts to Burwell v. Hobby Lobby:

Justin“This is truly a disappointing day because a majority of the Supreme Court justices has made a decision that will hurt our country, hurt businesses and hurt equality. The ruling for Hobby Lobby sets a dangerous precedent for future laws, such as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, because it could give legal argument to for-profit companies to claim religious exemption on non-discrimination policies.”

“Recognizing a corporate free-exercise right would force companies to divert time and resources away from their core business activities in order to manage inevitable conflicts about the company’s purported religious beliefs that will arise among corporate stakeholders.

“NGLCC is also greatly bothered that this ruling appears to now create a substantial threat to major gains in coverage the Affordable Care Act has brought to individuals.”

 
I (Religiously) Object! Comments (0)

Labor-Unions

The Supreme Court was widely expected to hand down two conservative decisions today, and it has:

In Harris v. Quinn, the Court ruled that partial public employees can not be reqired to contribute to unions. In so doing, they're guaranteeing that so-called partial public employees will enjoy all the benefits of the unions' negotiations, but pay for none of it, which some have said is a first step in dismantling unions.

I have no patience for people who are anti-union. There is a lot to criticize about unions, but the bottom line is that without them, we'd be slave labor right about now. And that is what Republicans want.

Hobby-Lobby

In a second major decision, in a case brought by Hobby Lobby, the Court has decided that closely-held businesses with religious objections can opt out of providing birth control for employees. This decision  is the first time the Court has held that a business can have its own religion. You know, kinda like how with Citizens United, the Court found that businesses are people? Well, now those people can have religions.

Opening the door to religious objections is a major step back for America. When businesses can start having religious objections to laws...where does it end? Why can't small businesses refuse to cover any costs of employees they decide are sinful? Justice Ginsburg says, in her dissent, that the Court is heading into “a minefield,” while deciding vote Justice Kennedy claims the decision is not that “broad.”
