NUNS FORCED TO PAY FOR OBAMACARE CONTRACEPTION:The First Amendment is nearly dead; Federal Courts are now freed from the US Constitution, as they make law themselves rather than compare law to constitutional restrictions on government powers to make such law, as they are directed to do.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit ruled today that the Little Sisters of the Poor must abide by Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate. You may recall that the Little Sisters took their religious liberty objection to the mandate all the way to the Supreme Court last summer–and won an injunction therefrom, pending disposition on the merits by the Tenth Circuit. But when considering the merits, the Tenth Circuit nonetheless ruled against them.
Now that we understand that there are no constitutional restrictions, we also are free to behave as if there are no constitutional restrictions. Why should scofflaw apply only to the Left?
