Liberals want to control churches to advance the idea that anyone who thinks different from them is evil.

This made my day:
As opposed to last year's violent video games case, when [Alito] mocked originalism by saying, "What Justice Scalia wants to know is what James Madison thought about violent video games," this morning Alito was quite serious.

Originalism IS that out of touch with reality. Scalia interprets the U.S. Constitution like any other SCOTUS justice; he just tries to rationalise it as "Scalia reading what was intended" as opposed to "Scalia reading in what Scalia intended".

In the entire story they didn't mention the questions that Thomas asked. Oh right, he is incompetent to hold the office and wouldn't want to open his mouth to prove it.

My prediction: the court will come down 5-4 against the worker and for the money-grubbing, tax avoiding organisation.

Why not allow organized religions to ignore discrimination laws? They already do.

NO ONE should get a pass when they violate a person's civil rights...not even preachers or priests. Chruches are getting too MANY passes lately. They are now challenging their tax exempt status by TELLING their parishoners who to vote for. Keep seperation of church and state intact!!

I think it is time some one brought a lawsuit against all the churches who have tax exempt status that are constantly breaking the church and state provision. The IRS should have taken the tax free status of a heck of a lot of churches by now.

The majority of this court stays OUT of meaningful cases that have nothing to do with politics.

IF YOU HAVE TO BEIEVE IN SOMETHING ITS PROBABLY NOT TRUE....Take away thier TAX STATUS and treat them like a corporation that sells FAKERY!

Reality is a consciousness hologram, brought forth into the physical to experience and study emotions. Time is an aspect of that illusion. Consciousness is shifting on all levels, which cannot be denied. Spiritually this is a movement into higher consciousness. To examine the accelerating physical Earth changes and consciousness of humanity, recognizing and healing its issues, is to understand this evolutionary process and what is occurring. Reality will shift to a higher (harmonic) dimension, ego identities remaining intact, and all will get to experience a world in harmony and balance - love and light.
You are aware that closure has already happened, you are not actually relating to anything here, but your soul wants to replay the ending for the high/rush/thrill of it - one more time on the roller coaster as they say ... knowing the outcome. If one thinks there real death will certainly be a disappointment!

Gods are IDEAS not to be worshipped to fit ones salvation to the ending of a movie!

Cut religous welfare. 3.2 billion in direct gimmies and 2.1 billion in grants, then tax them. If they do not follow the laws of the land they lose all their perks

Churches should not be tax exempt
Neither should ministers and other 'person's of the cloth' - they need to pay in just like everybody else.
If a church wants to except federal, state - or any tax dollars - they should not be allowed to discriminate. If they don't, more power to them, but they should still pay taxes
