  •  That's not what the history of corporate law is. (4+ / 0-)

    From the very beginnings of general incorporation in the US in the 1840s it has been the principle of all incorporation laws and their supporting court decisions that the owner and the corporation are entirely separate legal entities with entirely separate rights and responsibilities under the law and Constitution. The idea that the religious rights of the owner have any bearing on the rights of the corporation is a clear breach of that concept.

    Prior to the 1840s, of course, the owners of a business were free to impose their religion on their business, but since incorporation was not allowed for these same businesses, that's a moot point. The complete legal separation between business and owner that incorporation represents has never allowed that sort of thing to be exercised as a right since general incorporation became law.
