For the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. This is one of the many reasons I am not registered with either party. What were they thinking in 1993? As if religion were under some kind of threat which it wasn't back then. Oh yeah there will be many on this site willing to carry the water for Bill and Chuck on this and attack this post.
Politicians in this country are terrified of anything with the word religion attached to it. I live in a town where a commercial enterprise is masquerading as a religion and has all the politicians of both parties in their pocket. The Democratic chair of the county actually said to me I should be glad this group doesn't pay taxes. They bought 400 acres on the Hudson River for twenty-one million dollars no tax. They own two corporate jets, have a monopoly on jet fuel at a local airport, toy businesses and the workers labor for free. It is so bad that any politician running for office will go speak to the group but never hold a town meeting to speak to the tax paying citizens. The leader of the group has said in an interview he doesn't believe in democracy yet has no problem sending bus loads of members to vote in local elections.
How does this all relate to Hobby Lobby? That bill passed in 1993 allowed religion to get out of control in this nation. After dealing with politicians I thought were progressive and liberal on this subject I don't know who to vote for in November!
