Regarding the Clintons:
- If they have such sound legal minds, why did Bill Clinton sign the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993? It had no definition of "person" when passed leading to Hobby Lobby.
The court found that for-profit corporations could be considered "persons" under the RFRA, noting that that the government was already treating non-profit corporations as persons for this purpose, stating "no conceivable definition of 'person' includes natural persons and non-profit corporations, but not for-profit corporations."
Alito concludes by acknowledging the dissent's "worries about forcing the federal courts to apply RFRA to a host of claims made by litigants seeking a religious exemption from generally applicable laws...", noting that this point was "made forcefully by the Court in Smith." "But," Alito further noted, "Congress, in enacting RFRA, took the position that 'the compelling interest test as set forth in prior Federal court rulings is a workable test for striking sensible balances between religious liberty and competing prior governmental interests.' ...The wisdom of Congress’s judgment on this matter is not our concern.
- Why did Senator Clinton vote to go into Iraq?
- And, why did President Obama judge her unfit to handle diplomacy with Iraq after she became Secretary of State?
