As I wrote back in November of 2013, the Lords of Perception with the assistance of the US government, have fooled Americans into believing that religious freedom somehow extends beyond a personal freedom into the realm of enforcing one’s so-called morality upon others, provided one is a Christian business owner. https://kyoung4.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/religious-freedom-and-the-medias-big-lie/
The recent Hobby Lobby decision has made this massive untruth official. No longer is religious freedom simply about being able to practice one’s religion but in the case of Christian business owners that freedom extends into limiting their female employees’ access to birth control.
So slippery is this ridiculous slope and so eager were the male Justices to impose their version of morality onto American females that this decision will continue to devolve into utter chaos and confusion. Jehovah’s Witnesses can now claim that it is against their religious freedom to offer health insurance at all as a benefit to employment because they do not believe in any kind of medical intervention. Any religious groups’ business owners, not just government sanctioned Christians, can now claim that their religious freedom extends beyond a personal freedom and into the realm of imposing one’s version of morality onto one’s employees. Muslim business owners can claim it is their religious freedom to force their female employees to wear burkas and not drive cars.
The claims will keep coming but the court will only side with the Christian business owners and they will do mental summer saults and flips to do so. This engineered change of the very meaning of religious freedom has been engineered for the express purpose of using the concept of religious freedom as a battering ram of empire and the empire is a Christian one.
