Federal Judge Richard George Kopf runs a personal blog, “Hercules and the umpire,” and has some choice words for the Supreme Court’s decision on the Hobby Lobby case:

In the Hobby Lobby cases, five male Justices of the Supreme Court, who are all members of the Catholic faith and who each were appointed by a President who hailed from the Republican party, decided that a huge corporation, with thousands of employees and gargantuan revenues, was a “person” entitled to assert a religious objection to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate because that corporation was “closely held” by family members.
