Skip to comments.Supreme Court Ruling on Hobby Lobby, your predictions?
Posted on 06/30/2014 7:05:25 AM PDT by MNDude
How does everyone think the SCOTUS is going to rule on Hobby Lobby.
Unfortunately, I predict they'll vote on behalf of ObamaCare against HL.
SCOTUSblog says Justice Alito is reading the majority opinion!
Alito is writing the Opinion - I’m encouraged ...
Then again, maybe not. Sorry.
I fear that the larger set of pro religious freedom cases and pro conservative cases already announced indicate that Hobby Lobby lost this case.
I think that is really sad.
The Greece decision and the Mass. Abortion bubble decision were both good for Christian liberty but I think that may have been the internal justice cost of rendering Hobby Lobby poorly.
Why are you predicting they’ll vote on behalf of ObamaCare, against HL?
God will make the ultimate decision.
I think He has given the US as a nation over to a reprobate mind because we as a nation have rejected Him in every way.
Persecution is coming upon the Church, and this could be the beginning.
If the court rules against Hobby Lobby, they will simply fold their tents and go home, leaving thousands more jobless and dependent on the nanny state.
I’m thinking that’s what’s gonna happen.
O’bastard will get another slap down!
The unions will likely get slapped down too.
Robers for Hobby a week ago, switches to against 5 days ago, for 3 days ago, against 1 day ago, for right this second, and finally, against, 1 minute prior to reading the result at the bench.
Justice Alito has written the HobbyLobby opinion GREAT NEWS!!!!!!
Aloto just read majority opinion on the union case.
They seemed to have no problem with ObamaCare in their last ruling.
Also, I’m wondering if all these 9-0 victories could be a trade-off with Roberts or Kennedy.
Additional from SCOTUS: Employees cannot be required to contribute to unions!!!
Sounds like they were, 5-4, but didn't completely gut the unions...
I predict the liberals on the SCOTUS will flush your civil liberties right down the toilet.
That is a very good sign
A majority of the Supremes are bought and sold - corruption is absolute in all three branches now. And Soros has the most money.
I think its good news too. I think it will go Hobby Lobby’s way. Hobby Lobby also owns Mardel’s Christian Book stores too.
That does not mean anything. He could have written the dissent.
I read that Alito was assigned to write the opinions because he had written one less than the others this year, and since this is the closing session, it was simply his turn. Doesn’t mean anything.
The loose cannon is John Roberts
If he rules against the unborn again then I’ll know they got something big on him
Nearly always, when a report says “so and so wrote the opinion,” it means that they wrote the controlling opinion, i.e., the majority opinion.
I DO NOT think Alito WOULD WRITE the dissent!!!!!!
Here we go...
That is correct. I know people are hopeful here, but they are looking way to much into this.
I hope you are right. I kinda have a good feeling it will go our way. If the Supreme Court has any respect whatsoever for private companies and how they handle their business, they will vote for Holly Lobby. It doesn’t even have to be on religious grounds, just personal private business dealings.
“Closely held corporations cannot be required to provide contraception coverage” - Bi8ngo - a WIN !!! every church will incoporate now !!
Honestly, I hate the fact that the core of so many of our individual liberties hangs in the balance based on whatever the collective whim of nine justices in black robes happens to be at a given time. I continue to be very uncomfortable with how the judicial branch wields so much power to transform the entire culture from the bench.
HOBBY WINS!!!! WOOT!!!!!!
But, I’ll take it!
True, but these 9 judges have been right on the money in every decision in 2014.....they are perfect! Last year they were miserable.....I guess it depends on the year.
“Here is more qualification: It does not provide a shield for employers who might cloak illegal discrimination as a religious practice.” - the RAT fix is in ...
HOBBY LOBBY WINS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

” ... totally agree .... now can someone tell me how States can Seperate from the National Gov’t again ???
Per FoxNews, via AP, 5 to 4 decision in favor of Hobby Lobby
Looks like you were just proved wrong on that prediction
“illegal discrimination as a religious practice”
We know what that means!
We will win this one but lose elsewhere.
Code speak for ‘bend over’ ...
FoxNews Brit Hume: Decision applies to ‘closely held’ companies.
[That is, companies owned mostly by family. Hmmm, Walmart, too?]
Haven’t found one (Link), yet.
The Congress could theoretically rein them in, if they ever wanted to. Not going to happen in this Universe, but still...
I’m so happy I was wrong! As George will said “It’s great being a pessimist. You’re either proven right or you’re pleasantly surprised.”
Huh? What I read suggested that the unions can’t collect dues from non-union members...
