Jonathan Turley believes the Hobby Lobby case isn’t as narrow as some are arguing it is, suggesting people are getting too caught up on the ‘closely held corporations’ language.
He points out that other large corporations were least likely to ask for an exemption like this, adding that closely held corporations are huge in this country with makes the decision far more sweeping than people realize:
Turley then adds this at the end:
It’s a huge blow to the Obama administration. You know, this has been an awful 10 days. You know, they were previously found to be in violation of the 4th amendment and privacy. Then they were found to be in violation of the Separation of Powers. Now they’ve been found to be in violation of the first amendment and the religion clauses.
I mean, you just don’t want to get out of bed after a week like that.
