Remembering segregation


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton

Poor logic on Hobby Lobby decision


Commentary

Marci A. Hamilton
There are times when a court’s reasoning becomes so precious that it has no contact with reality, which is precisely what happened when the en banc U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit decided Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius. The most important issue in the case is whether a for-profit company is a religious “person” under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). The short answer is “No.”

Commentary
