On Monday, the California Supreme Court ruled 6-1 that a Catholic charity -- which employs people from a wide variety of religions and aids mostly non-Catholic indigents -- must, against its conscience, provide funding for contraceptives in its employee health benefits package. This is because existing California law quite specifically requires it, and the court just validated the law.
What was some of the immediate response to news of this court decision?
"There are two moral routes to go. One, ignore the state mandate ..."
"I know this is harsh but hope they just ignore this order and reap the wrath."
Please note that Newsom is challenging a law in order to bring the relevant law's constitutionality before the courts. The church has already challenged their law, gone to the state's highest court, and lost.
So please kindly shut the fuck up about your precious "rule of law" now. If you don't want to obey the law, the courts or the state Constitution, I don't want to hear your aggrieved whining about a mayor bucking the first of the three.
