#1 Here in Obamaland this week, the Supremes threw out the 'Hobby Lobby' suite over insurance funding for the birth control pill. No longer matters what your personal desires or Christian beliefs are, you must remain silent and eat the Gov't provided biscuits.

#2 But no doubt Muslims get all their [un]holy days off. Plus at least an hour each day to prey.

#6 Hobby Lobby didn't lose. They just weren't granted an injunction against Federal Penalties, which they say they'll ignore anyway. Sotomayor handed that down. Their case will still be heard.
