The Supreme Court will soon decide if CEOs can impose their religious convictions on the people who work for them.


SwagJerryRice:

Hell no, they don't. Your religious beliefs, with very few exceptions, do not grant blanket exemptions from laws. If you let a corporation say "Contraception in my health care plans? Nuh-uh, religious exemption," what's to stop them from saying "Minimum wage contradicts my view of the Bible" or "Jesus says I don't have to follow building codes"?

Didn't Employment Division v. Smith settle this over two decades ago?
