The brilliant Steve Deace has written some good stuff in the past. I mean the man is practically a conservative legend across the nation, but his most recent article really makes me happy. In it he uncovers the idiocy of some of the arguments the liberal Left is making about the Hobby Lobby decision. And boy did someone need to call them out…
Now that we’re done celebrating a rare victory, it’s time to get back to work. Because if you’ve spent any amount of time perusing the arguments against free speech and religious liberty in the Hobby Lobby case, you realize there is another country flying our same flag that looks more like the U.S.S.R. than the U.S.A.
Check out this collection of “tolerance” from some on the Left.
“F-SCOTUS. F-Hobby Lobby. F-Religion. F-America.”
“I will not take my dollars or my less-than uterus to Hobby Lobby again.”
“High court rules in favor of #HobbyLobby” – what the fuck is #SCOTUS smoking? Kochcaine?”
“F-you Hobby Lobby, I hope all your stores burn to the ground.”
“Literally burn hobby lobby to the ground.”
“Hobby Lobby are scum of the earth. Burn every single one down, build a homeless shelter there instead.”
Can’t you just feel the diversity?
Then there’s Cecile Richards, an especially troubled soul, for she is one of the mucky-mucks over at Planned Parenthood, the leading child-killer in the country. She said, “It’s unbelievable that in 2014 we’re still fighting about whether women should have access to birth control.”
Um, we’re not.
Hobby Lobby already was offering its employees 16 of the 20 contraception methods Obamacare mandates long before this argument arose. Hobby Lobby was simply posing the question is government allowed to violate the First Amendment, which guarantees freedom of religion? Since Hobby Lobby’s religion teaches extinguishing innocent life is murder, and murder is against God’s Law, they claimed their freedom of religion exempts them from committing acts of murder according to their moral conscience. This battle wasn’t about access to birth control, it was about access to liberty.
