    I love some of the pithy statements you chose to include:

    Judge Jackson:

    RFRA is a shield, not a sword.  It protects individuals from substantial burdens on religious exercise that occur when the government coerces action one’s religion forbids, or forbids action one’s religion requires; it is not a means to force one’s religious practices upon others.
    Also love the HHS position:
    a corporation is not a person and therefore cannot "exercise" a religion under RFRA.

    I'm not liberal. I'm actually just anti-evil, OK? - Elon James White
