Justice Sotomayer ruled in favor of Muslim inmates but ruled against Christian business owners.

The Supreme Court denied a request by Hobby Lobby, a Christian-owned company, to shield the company from the controversial contraceptive mandate. Justice Sonia Sotomayor rejected a request for an emergency injunction that would have shielded employers from the mandate. Hobby Lobby could face fines of up to $1.3 million a day if they do not comply to the Obama mandate.

Yet, as Laura Ingraham pointed out, in a previous case Sotomayor ruled for a Muslim inmate who was denied Ramadan meals. In Ford v. McGinnis, 352 F.3d 582 (2d Cir. 2003), Sotomayor wrote an opinion that reversed a district court decision holding that a Muslim inmate’s First Amendment rights had not been violated because the holiday feast that he was denied was not a mandatory one in Islam. Sotomayor held that the inmate’s First Amendment’s rights were violated because the feast was subjectively important to the inmate’s practice of Islam.

  1. The consequences of electing devils into office.

  2. People need to understand that ANY discussion about this ‘wise single latina mom’ must include her racist thinking.

    I have no doubt that her biases will be seen in everything she does until she finally leaves that court.

  3. I bet whe won’t stay on the court that long. There have been quite a few that have quit.Sue Obie will get another appointment, but when your are President for Life, like Papa Doc Duvalier…

  4. Falcom–right on–my family and a lot of others are right there with you.
    Owl–watched a little of Laura on OReilly tonight and had similar thoughts. I’m sick of taking ‘the high road’ and getting whipped by the scum who could care less. You can’t comprise with those who are trying to destroy you. Will not watch Fox news shows that put a bunch of dems on ‘to be fair.’ Can go to CNN for that.
    Sotomayor–appointed by the dictator–enough said.

    yeah but, Muslims discovered America.. / :roll: sarc/

    (scroll thread for much more)

  6. Apples and Oranges, but facts aren’t important, when you are only looking for reasons to be outraged. Hobby Lobby will still have their day in court, just like Wayne Ford did, thanks to Justice Sotomayor.

  7. She is a whore dog. No news here.

  8. ★FALCON★ – Spot on

    Taq – Congrats :) Great start!

  9. Again, like Shadow says, Apples to Oranges. I realize you won’t listen, but I don’t think you all truly understand what it means to have a freedom of religion. Hobby Lobby can still exercise their religious beliefs, but they can’t block their employees from exercising their own beliefs.

  10. Sotomayer is the intellectually weakest judge I’ve seen seated on the Supreme Court during my lifetime. Her failure to grasp the hypocrisy of her conflicting rulings is testament to the fact.

  11. If you cannot see what is taking place before your eyes then you my American are blind. If what you see is not blatant favoritism in its highest regard then again you are plain ignorant. This goes by the name payback. It’s their form of paying back what was given to them in mass voting/ money. If minority says the sky is green and the American says it is blue, you bet it is decided it is green. Do not wait for proof, there will be none, there cannot be none. It’s a done deal. The sky will be green for ever more. It is the gift that will keep on giving for the gift they gave to the One !!!! American citizens do not have a chance in Hell up against this. They will lose on all fronts, regardless of laws that protect them, regardless of rights. It will always be their right and not yours. Goodbye America !!!!

  12. “Hobby Lobby can still exercise their religious beliefs, but they can’t block their employees from exercising their own beliefs.” they could always exercise their beliefs at another place of employment more in line with their thinking. assuming that current employees accepted employment with a benefit package that excluded services not in line with the employers beliefs. neither side has to force their beliefs on the other.

  13. muslims are execpt from obamacare because of religious reasons. catholics are not. equality under the law liberal style. hows that 14th admendment that the liberals always touted during the civil rights movement working out.

  14. “This goes by the name payback. It’s their form of paying back what was given to them in mass voting/ money. If….” what better way to break your opponent than by making him/her betray they’re core beliefs. instead of looking for services from like minded providers, the focus is on those with differing views with an attempt to force them to comply. when the government has controls over every aspect of life and can only focus on those opposed to it……….obsessing about the one who rejected it.

  15. [He never argued the man – found guilty of kidnapping and robbing a teenager before shooting him in the face – might be innocent. Since the Racial Justice Act gave him the discretion, he simply declared prosecutors were racist and gave a murderer a get-out-of-death-row-free card] hmmm? depending on who the victims were will the next step be to revisit the perp just being the victim of a racist system and all that entails. he wouldn’t have done it if his great great great grand relative wasn’t abducted and thrown into slavery.

  16. The Supremes will never vote in favor of Christianity. Unfortunately those days are gone.

  18. Anything white, male, christian, or heterosexual is inherently and irredeemably Evil.
    That seems to be the test.
    If it’s more than one of these at the same time it’s even more Evil.
