Comment of the day

Seen elsewhere, in the middle of a raucous comment thread about the Hobby Lobby case.

1) So, after years of pleading with corporate managers to follow their conscience instead of  [being] amoral greedheads, the left now insists that you have to check your conscience at the door to enjoy the privileges of incorporation. There's no pleasing some people.
2) Gee, it's too bad Bart Stupak's vote was necessary to pass the ACA. If only the contraception mandate had been statutory, instead of an HHS regulation...perhaps some Congressional amendments to the legislation are in order? Heh, heh.
3) The HHS directive has very little to do with the maintenance of public health and everything to do with expressing political dominance. "Is it true, O Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my Affordable Care Act, nor worship the golden mandates which I have set up? Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the doctors, bioethicists, bureaucrats, insurance commissioners and pharmaceutical executives, and all kinds of technocrats, ye fall down and worship the mandate which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of the IRS; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?"
A better discussion of the legal nature of that case is available here (and here, with more commentary here), but I found the comparison to the book of Daniel too on-point to pass up.
