    The liberty of the individual vs the religion of a group.

    Pretty sure the Founders had a handle on this one.
    Now groups have more rights than the individuals who make up the group. What kind of twisted logic is that?


    I would tell you the only word in the English language that has all the vowels in order but, that would be facetious.

    •  Um... technically that is correct. (0+ / 0-)

      Government do a lot of things that's good for the group that is its citizen, not necessarily good for any single individual. Government actions generally try to balance the benefit/cost among many, many different groups they represent.

      However, in this case, the ruling is bad for a LARGE group of people (woman) and benefit a very small group of people (ass-hole fundamentalists).
