Supreme Court: business isn’t a religion-free zone

“The US Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision upholds a vital principle, according to IRFA President Stanley Carlson-Thies:  “[T]he decision importantly vindicates business as a realm where employers can make decisions based on religion, charitable impulses, humanitarianism, social justice, and other motivations, and not just maximization of profit. And it vindicates religious freedom as a check on even the best-motivated government regulatory actions. In our advanced societies so centred on commerce and government regulation, it is a signal achievement for a highest court to come to the aid of religion and civil society.”  Read the rest of his commentary for Cardus, the Canadian Christian social-architecture think tank, here.
