Sotomayor Ruled in Favor of Muslim Inmate’s Ramadan Dinner But Rejected Christian Hobby Lobby
Gateway ^ | December 27, 2012 | Jim Hoft

Justice Sotomayer ruled in favor of Muslim inmates but ruled against Christian business owners.

The Supreme Court denied a request by Hobby Lobby, a Christian-owned company, to shield the company from the controversial contraceptive mandate. Justice Sonia Sotomayor rejected a request for an emergency injunction that would have shielded employers from the mandate. Hobby Lobby could face fines of up to $1.3 million a day if they do not comply to the Obama mandate.

Yet, as Laura Ingraham pointed out, in a previous case Sotomayor ruled for a Muslim inmate who was denied Ramadan meals.

Not only is Sotomayor a hypocrite, it’s beyond me that any judge would give special meal privilege to any prisoner other than for serious medical reasons. Religious rights and any other rights should not apply to prisoners. If a man wants a Ramadan meal, then that man needs to stay out prison.

I was fascinated by Sotomayor’s reason for denying Hobby Lobby's appeal. She said that Hobby Lobby is not a religious organization. This is what happens when you select a person to be a member of the highest court in the land for reasons other than her character, legal knowledge, and legal experience.

Ownership of Hobby Lobby is Christian, and they are being forced by the federal government to commit an act they find repugnant to their religious beliefs.

Sotomayor is wrong.

She is ruling exactly the way she said she would before she was confirmed. She believes it’s her job to level the playings field. Screw the constitution.

The Roman Catholic hospitals sowed this inane argument when they claimed that they should be exempt. Instead, the church should have made claims on behalf of parishioners, who are not religious institutions.

Easy to explain. In Justice Sotomayer's America, Muslim inmates have more rights than Christian business owners.

Can anyone say "Sharia law"?

I’m surprised they didn’t let him slaughter the goat with a knife.

And just as surprised she didn’t say something like ‘they can slice the heads off of guards after too, since that’s their culture’.

Wise latina.

Does Sotormayor look like she's been doing some serious drinking, or is that look normal for her?

We waste too much time pointing out the left’s “hypocrisy” instead of pointing out where they are consistent -

they are anti-Christ.

All there actions are consistent within this assertion.

The NSA, CIA and Defense Dept followed Pearl Harbor,
and yet,
after 911, the Moslem Brotherhood was allowed
to infiltrate the Pentagon and White House and Congress,
and Islam was exempted from ObamaCARE/Slavery/DeathPanels
foiseted on all other Americans (Congress exempted, too).

The equation is easy - if you are NOT a Christian, then the rules shall be suspended for you. But Christians have to abide by the most restrictive of newly written covenants, because, doncha know, they have been too big a head start in this country already, and they have to be taught to share power.

Islam does not share power, nowhere in the world, once they achieve it. For them, it is strictly a one-way deal. And Sotomayor is an enabler.

Which is how she expresses her very wrong take on the situation

...........at some point Obama will get one or two more picks on SCOTUS! Then, 2nd Ammendment is going to go down!

At that point, the question becomes “how many millions of the sixty millions just QUIT paying taxes”

That’s the burning question for the feds...............AND CONSERVATIVES!

The Supreme Court has proven itself as worthless as the (D) Senate. I can make no sense of many of their rulings and couldn’t care less about their future rulings. They’re a bunch of hacks.

I would be more general-—they are anti-God and pro-Satanism/occultism.

Whittakers Chambers pointed out this exact same thing-—in the 50’s when he was saying that the Marxists were infiltrating all our institutions— that there was a war between God and man and man was winning.

Of course, the Marxists have total control of education to destroy the Christian Ethics and concept of God (intentionally)—and law schools are pumping out these irrational ideologues who can’t “think” in the original Classical way-—using Absolute Truth (God) and Logic.

Reason and Faith was never separated-—Hint: Reason can NEVER separate Logic from Faith. Not possible-—Christians admit they use Faith—Atheists Lie. (Marxism=Big Lie)

Sotomayor is irrational and unconstitutional and should be impeached as most of the judges who “think” in Marxist (irrational) ways—They “reason” with lies and arbitrary thinking not based in Reason and Absolute Truth—”God’s Laws”. There is no “Constitutionality” to their “opinions”.

Reason (with the understanding of God’s Laws (Natural Law Theory—there is a Designer) HAS to exist in Rule of Law-—which is what this Republic demands in its Supreme Law.

We are living in an Alice in Wonderland World-—where “up is down”-—Good is Evil. There is no logic or reason on the majority of the Supreme Court Bench today and most courts in the States. They are corrupt and sick. It is sad. The Constitution (Right Reason) is totally being ejected.

Sheesh, aren’t you aware that there is an active movement underway in this country to destroy or eradicate Christianity?

What can be more effective than promoting and giving preferential treatment to islam? Have you heard any of our ‘Christian’ congresscritters protest the persecution of Christians in muslim countries?

I know, I know, separation of Church and State....

Please don’t hold down the “post” button or hit ‘er again if the server doesn’t seem to be doing anything. That’s how people get multiple posts. Slowness happens, but multiple posts needn’t happen.

(Art.) Yet, as Laura Ingraham pointed out, in a previous case Sotomayor ruled for a Muslim inmate who was denied Ramadan meals.

Then she had to be ruling with eyes wide open, that whereas the other appellant was a respected Moslem, this appellant is a despised conservative Christian -- and Obamacare was involved.

Barky's already put out the word: Catholics have to "hypocritize" themselves, to falsify their beliefs in practice and abjure their God. They uphold untenable, objective standards of truth and must be shown their errors -- or at least forced to comply with the Will of the Hive Mind.

There's no difference here between being forced to commit abortions, on the one hand, and forced on pain of death to celebrate the official religion by burning offerings on the public altars in the time of Pliny the Younger.
