Intelligent write-up about Hobby Lobby issues...

...by journalist Dan Fisher at Forbes.  I talked to him prior to the perplexing injunction on behalf of Wheaton, but he integrated that effectively.  And Justice Sotomayor gets it exactly right in the bit he quotes:  it really is preposterous on its face that anyone's free exercise of religion is burdened by a bit of paperwork (if only it were so--I might find God!).  (The 7th Circuit disposed of the other argument in the Notre Dame case--Justice Sotomayor noted the relevant bit, as does Mr. Fisher.)
