The administrations arguments in this case are shocking. Heres what they are saying: once someone starts a secular business, he categorically loses any right to run that business in accordance with his conscience. The business owner simply leaves her First Amendment rights at home when she goes to work at the business she built. Kosher butchers around the country must be shocked to find that they now run secular businesses. On this view of the world, even a seller of Bibles is secular. Hobby Lobbys affiliate, Mardel, sells Bibles and other Christian-themed material, but because it makes a profit the government has now declared it secular.
Sounds similar to how employees are treated by employers when it comes to 1st amendment issues... interesting tact for the gov to take.
According to the Supreme Court a corporation is a person. That person is entitled to free speech rights which nullifies much of campaign finance reform. But apparently some first amendment rights only cover some persons.
