    Another anthropomorphic example of giving corporations human characteristics. A corporation does not have religious beliefs.

    If they these corporations believe they should be exempt from this law because it infringes on their christian beliefs, why cant other religions decide they too should be exempt. Why cant jewish, or hindus or muslims decide their corporations dont have to do whatever they think is infringing on them. This is a slippery slope, and we're sliding the wrong way.
    This is a bullsh76 decision based on what....these judges are imposing their beliefs not the law, in my opinion.
