The stunning Burwell v. Hobby Lobby et.al. Supreme Court Decision grants "closely held" corporations newly created "religious freedoms" that trump the religious freedoms of living breathing human beings. This creates a special class of "corporate personhood" with the power to nullify the human freedoms and Constitutional Rights of its Human employees.

More than 200 years ago, the founding fathers of the United States of America created a unique system of government Constitution based on Enlightenment principles and a series of Amendments called the “Bill of Rights.” Although designed to protect individual citizens from government overreach and dedicated to equality under the law, their original Constitution perpetuated slavery and guaranteed equality only to male land owners.
Happy summer solstice!
