So, there's much bitching, very complaints, about the SCOTUS' decision on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores.

Most of the obvious faults were pointed out in Justice Ginsberg's dissent (wherein she did an excellent job of trolling Justice Scalia); that this is a horrid bit of hurtfulness aimed at Women should go without saying, but doesn't - even shouting about it might not be enough to penetrate the wall of willfull ignorance put up by the Conservative Religionists.

One point, though. Since the decision declares a narrow focus, one restricted to how much control Hobby Lobby has over their employees' vaginas, it sets a precedent of defining this type and similar religious rights in strictly sexual terms.

A short term victory for the Religious Right, but they're fucked in the long run: this will have the effect of stripping away the moral high ground they claim.
