Why the Hobby Lobby ObamaCare Ruling is Irrelevant & May Be Used Against You (to Expand Muslim Rights)

By Debbie Schlussel

The news is abuzz with today’s Supreme Court ruling on the Hobby Lobby’s challenge to ObamaCare. Don’t believe the hype. Yes, the decision allows the Hobby Lobby to opt out of providing certain kinds of contraceptives to employees (the company only objected to the contraception it deems similar to abortion, but pays for most other contraception). But it is not a blow to ObamaCare. Not even close.


If this were a blow to ObamaCare, the Supreme Court would have ruled against Hobby Lobby. As we all know, ObamaCare will ultimately result in a single payer system. That’s the real goal. And, so, this decision will soon–or eventually–become obsolete, moot, and irrelevant. And it only applies to a very few limited number of companies. Most large companies subject to ObamaCare are not closely held–meaning they are not owned by a few shareholders, usually family members or partnerships, as closely held companies are.

And you should worry about the holding. That’s because you know the language in the decision and the cases cited won’t be used to help you. But it can–and probably will–be used to shield backward Muslim practices that are and should be unconstitutional.

As the Muslim population in America grows–and grows ever more extreme and fundamentalist–closely held Muslim-owned businesses will engage in illegal sharia-compliant practices against women, non-Muslims, and so on. And they will be able to seize upon some of the language in the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby decision to protect that. Just watch. After all, the court relied in significant part on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in its decision. But you know that the federal government will use the language to protect Muslim practices against employees in businesses, and will ignore the language when it comes to Christians, as the Obama Administration clearly did in forcing this case all the way to the Supreme Court. (Muslims, BTW, aren’t as opposed to abortion as some of their pimps on the right–like Grover Norquist–would have you believe. They aren’t pro-life in any sense of the term, either before or after birth.)

By the way, it is interesting that the Supreme Court chose to decide this case in this way, but is letting stand all of the decisions against Christian-owned bakeries and photography businesses, which objected to baking cakes and taking photos, respectively, for gay marriages. Those are smaller and even more closely-held businesses than Hobby Lobby is. And, yet, the Court declined to hear their cases, so the lower court decisions against them hold. Given this ruling, I’d love to see a revival of those challenges by the bakers and photographers.

But, unfortunately, I have a feeling that only Muslim bakeries and photographers will get to decline these gay gay occasions (repeat word intended).

As we know, today in America the only religious freedom the government stands up for and which will last is that of Muslims. The rest of us? Fuhgedaboutit. The Hobby Lobby decision is just a speed bump on that road to MeccAmerica.

I just e-mailed you about the boys just found in Israel.

Abducted and murdered by Islamic terrorists.

I could care less about the Hobby Lobby case.

“If this were a blow to ObamaCare, the Supreme Court would have ruled against Hobby Lobby. As we all know, ObamaCare will ultimately result in a single payer system.”

Very astute, Debbie. Great article.

“ObamaCare” is a dirty word in my household. We were promised that no tax will increase one dime. We were promised that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. We were promised that most people would see their premiums decrease by $2,500.

I moved from Texas to New York. My insurance was canceled, but for 90 days, the premiums tripled. We spent days on the ObamaCare website. We finally signed up with someone for a family plan; we were issued a plan just for me only, with different premiums. We spent hours on the phone–no one answers. THIS IS TORTURE! WE ARE NOT CRIMINALS! WE ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS TRYING TO GET HEALTHCARE!

Finally, we dropped that and signed on with another carrier. The premiums were quite expensive. Last week (we’ve not been on the plan for even 90 days), we were told that the premiums would increase another 25%!

Obama should be impeached just for this, but of course, he won’t. The media insists that ObamaCare is working just fine, just like VA care.

On a sad note, the three Israeli hitchhikers’ bodies have been found. President Obama has said nothing. Michele Obama can’t be bothered to tweet a hashtag of support.

    Why in the world would you leave TX for a commie hellhole like NY? Most people leave NY and never come back.

    Habib Akbarovich on June 30, 2014 at 3:47 pm

      I was hospitalized twice and we have family in New York, so we had to move back.

The Supreme Court has been leading the drive towards a left-wing, politically correct, collectivist society.

Health care, gay marriage, etc. I think the reason so many conservatives are expressing enthusiasm about this decision is that they want to use the argument of future appointments to the Supreme Court as an argument for supporting whichever Republican hack wins the 2016 nomination. In order to do that, they have to pretend that at least a few of the decisions enhance conservativism, or that on balance, the Supreme Court is slowing the push towards collectivist tyranny.

    Wow, did you come up with that during an LSD trip?

    Dave on July 2, 2014 at 4:33 pm

Single payer or single prayer? (system).

#1 Vato on June 30, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    Yeah, pray for the day Obama is retired.

    Jesse on June 30, 2014 at 4:08 pm

      Yeah Jesse January 20, 2016 can’t get here fast enough.

I also might add that the High Court also let stand a California ban on so-called “gay conversion therapy,” meaning young kids trapped in that lifestyle and desperately seeking a way out of it will be sucked ever deeper into the abyss. (Yet they mentioned nothing about homosexual proselytizers from NAMBLA and GLSEN who have unfettered access to our children in our schools – and are thus in a position to convert them to homosexuality.) As for the SCOTUS’ decisions against Christian-owned bakeries and photography studios – it does seem the “plaintiffs” in those cases deliberately chose those above all other businesses for the express purpose of destroying them. Not unlike what some Muslims have done as part of their strategy to force their customs, values and way of life upon us.

I agree. The U.S. Supreme Court had its chance previously to really impact the Affordable Care Act, but declined to do so. Their present decision will only impact a relatively small number of businesses. Debbie was right in noting that the bakers and photographers who object to gay marriage were left out in the cold.

Muslim businesses will try to take advantage of the Hobby Lobby ruing to shield various unsavory practices.

“Given this ruling, I’d love to see a revival of those challenges by the bakers and photographers”

Me too.

I so like how you think Debbie. The U.S. Supreme Court did have a chance you put a big dent in Obamacare but our RINO Chief Justice closed that door. Bakers and photographers who object to homosexual “marriages” will still have to deal the loons insisting that they comply. Also loser groups like CAIR are getting their lawyers ready to take advantage of this ruling.

    I thought that muslims, Seventh Day Adventists and the Amish got a pass on obummer care already….

    It's just me again on July 1, 2014 at 4:08 pm

Valuable insights as always.

bobguzzardi on July 1, 2014 at 10:09 am

Not surprisingly, Debbie is the only one of any visibility who has made the Islam/Hobby Lobby connection.

skzion on July 1, 2014 at 11:09 am

hobby in the lobby?

Dakuan on July 2, 2014 at 11:14 am

Hahaha wow. I mean, I get it, you hate Muslims but this is hilarious.
