Political hysteria has reached a crescendo over a very defined and limited ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby with this week’s 5-4 Supreme Court decision.

It is not defined. It is not limited. It is a disaster ... for us.

I stand by my position this will come back to haunt us. Not only will it turn the public tide hard against us, it WILL be used by other “Religions” against us. And we will not always have this SCOTUS makeup. (And if oyu think the GOP wins anything in 2016 I have this bridge ...)

I read this ruling and it is much more expansive than you think. Also, the government will soon be funding what Hobby Lobby will not.

No amount of Conservative spin makes this anything more than a disaster. The ONLY silver lining is it was based on a Statute and NOT the Constitution.

The disaster is percolating. Just give it time.
