There is a bigger picture that you are missing here. The Constitution forbids the Supremes to make any laws regarding religion or it's free expression by the states and the citizens of those states.
They are as out of bounds on this as they are on affirmative action, abortion, and homosexual sex. They are the ones behaving illegally. As citizens it is our duty to ignore illegal laws that fly in the face of the Constitution.
Read it again... Congress is not allowed to make laws about religion. The Supreme Court is not supposed to make laws at all. They are to interpret according to the Constitution.

The Constitution forbids the Supremes to make any laws...
Bingo. So if the Supreme Court, or any court makes a law, then by definition it is an illegal law. And if a court issues an order pursuant to that judge-made law, then the order is void.
The power to legislate does not rest with the judiciary.

I agree with post 13: Your views are on the mark.
