Hobby Lobby Decision Creates Small Island of Freedom in Ocean of Statism

• http://www.lewrockwell.com, By Ron Paul
 The Court was correct to protect business owners from being forced to violate their religious beliefs by paying for contraceptives. However, the decision was very limited in scope and application.

The Court's decision only applies to certain types of businesses, for example, "closely-held corporations" that have a "sincere" religious objection to paying for contraceptive coverage. Presumably, federal courts or bureaucrats will determine if a business's religious objection to the mandate is "sincere" or not and therefore eligible for an opt-out from one Obamacare mandate.

Opponents of the Court's decision are correct that a religious objection does not justify a special exemption from the Obamacare contraception mandate, but that is because all businesses should be exempt from all federal mandates. Federal laws imposing mandates on private businesses violate the business owners' rights of property and contract.
