Guardian pointed out last November (my emphasis):
And don't be fooled; this is more about the current political tides
than long-held religious values. The constitutional issues at play here
aren't all that grey. But the supreme court's calculus is made more
complex simply by virtue of the issue being attached to the
controversial Affordable Care Act.
Notably, the Hobby Lobby used
to have an employee insurance plan that covered the very same birth
control methods it now claims violate its religious freedom. It wasn't
until the GOP raised a stink about the contraception rules in Obama's
healthcare legislation that the Hobby Lobby "re-examined" its insurance
policies. Is the religious belief sincerely held? Probably. But it's as
much political and cynical as it is faith-based.
And, let's face it, the whole Roberts Court is a joke -- a nakedly political joke.
