Hobby Lobby Wrap-Up

I am currently at work on a few hundred words on the Hobby Lobby case for the American Historical Associations Perspectives blog.  It will probably appear in a day or two.  

In the meantime, here are some of interesting takes on yesterday's Supreme Court decision:

Emma Green at The Atlantic: "The Supreme Court Isn't Waging a War on Women in Hobby Lobby.

Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Church is "elated."

John Dilulio at Brookings: "Hobby Lobby: The Real Religious Exemption Fight if yet to Come"

It might be good at this point to return to Patrick Deneen, "Even if Hobby Lobby Wins, We Lose."  This is the best think I have read on the case, hands down.

Robert George at First Things: "What Hobby Lobby Means"

Michelle Goldberg at The Nation:  "Alito's 'Hobby Lobby' Opinion is Dangerous and Discriminatory"

David Gans at The New Republic:  "The Roberts Court Thinks Corporations Have More Rights Than You Do"

Jeffrey Toobin at The New Yorker: "The Trap in the Supreme Court's 'Narrow' Decisions"
