You know, that’s such an important point, and one that none of the parties brought up, because it’s a settled question at law. How can a non-profit corporation even HAVE religious liberty interests?

The courts have decided corporations are people with first amendment rights, and that isn’t going to change, but it is fairly ludicrous. Like, look at Catholic hospitals that overrule their own doctors’ decisions based on theology rather than medicine.

Almost all the patients and workers in those hospitals disagree with the theology in question.

So whose rights are being protected when the courts rule that the bishops may enforce their policies? I don’t think there’s any good answer to that question. I wish it could be reexamined.
