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


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?
