Right Wing Nut Jobs React To Hobby Lobby Decision
On Monday, the Supreme Court’ ruled in a 5-4 decision that the government can’t require certain employers to provide insurance coverage for methods of birth control and emergency contraception that conflict with their religious beliefs, so of course, the religious right is ecstatic. Naturally, those are the same people who oppose abortion, so that really leaves women out of the loop; No affordable contraception and no way out of an unwanted pregnancy.
After the anticipated Hobby Lobby ruling, right wing nut jobs weighed in.
RedState.com’s Erick Erickson applauded the decision by being a misogynistic jerk.
On RedState, Erickson writes, “Hobby Lobby will not have to comply with the birth control mandate in Obamacare. This is a huge win for religious liberty with Justice Alito writing the decision.”
Comments came pouring in — I’ll leave two examples, one of which has to do with slapping down Obama:
Contraception is evil.
American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer predicts stuff:
Prediction: Obama will issue an executive order directing the government to buy contraceptives for every woman in America.

That’s a totally fair poll.
Male Conservative justices on the Supreme Court just ruled against women and for their corporate employers.
