With all the controversy surrounding the Hobby Lobby lawsuit, the contraception mandate and the question of whether people in corporations have religious rights, there is a lot of discussion about what the ACA, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the Constitution say.
I’m no constitutional scholar or Supreme Court justice, but I can tell you for sure what the Constitution does not say. Nowhere in the Bill of Rights will you find, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the right of the people peaceably to assemble — unless they happen to be making a profit while assembling, in which case all bets are off.”
