Neil Gorsuch supports corporate religious “rights”

April 1, 2014

While on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch ruled in 2014 that a corporation, not its owners but the corporation itself, has religious beliefs and rights. The decision allowed the corporation to avoid providing insurance to cover contraceptive costs for its employees. Besides being a classic case of judicial activism, it’s simply insane.

Corporations are artificial legal creations of government. They were not intended to have inalienable constitutional rights — including First Amendment religious rights. His nomination should be strongly opposed. Corporations are corporations and people are people.
