Justice Thomas wrote an opinion upholding religious liberty and the left lost it

The Supreme Court just handed down one of the best rulings in recent years – and Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the decision.

The left, predictably, is outraged.

The decision affirmed the right of religious organizations to opt out of paying for contraception under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. The organization that brought the case, Little Sisters of the Poor, object to contraception as a matter of their traditional Catholic faith, and argued that they shouldn’t have to pay for something they oppose on religious grounds.

Justice Thomas, writing for the majority, stated:

“For over 150 years, the Little Sisters have engaged in faithful service and sacrifice, motivated by a religious calling to surrender all for the sake of their brother,” Thomas wrote. “But for the past seven years, they — like many other religious objectors who have participated in the litigation and rulemakings leading up to today’s decision — have had to fight for the ability to continue in their noble work without violating their sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Leftist Twitter, never a friend to religious liberty, went crazy. This take from the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, was typical:

The White House, on the other hand, issued a statement praising the decision, noting:

Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a big win for religious freedom and freedom of conscience.  Almost a decade ago, the Obama administration attempted to force employers, including religious nonprofits like the Little Sisters of the Poor, an order of nuns, to provide contraceptive coverage to their employees, in violation of their religious beliefs.  Twice before in this ongoing saga, the Supreme Court has blocked these overly rigid and misguided efforts and sided with religious freedom.  Today, it has once again vindicated the conscience rights of people of faith.

  1. CONGRATS TO THE JUDGE……FOR DOING HIS JOB……!!!!!!! NO ONE SHOULD FORCE ANYONE TO PAY FOR CONTRACEPTION…..”EXCEPT THE PERSON WHO NEEDS IT!!!!!!!! THIS IS A VIOLATION OF YOUR RIGHT IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE PROCESS????????? OBAMA FORCED COMPANIES TO ACCEPT THIS WITH HIS OBAMACARE????????? JUST BECAUSE HE BELIEVES IN ABORTION DOES NOT MEAN WE ALL SHOULD OR DO BELIEVE IN IT……?????????

      1. At last someone to uphold our religious freedom. Have you noticed ever since these basic constitutional rights have been attached to become abolished that we have less and less peace of mind. Human behaviour in the wake of all this has disturbed all of our common sense and progress of our nation to so many irrational obvious distractions that even our long held political old timers have lost their minds.

  2. Bravo to Judge Thomas! Contraception should be a personal choice, not a legislative one! An employer should not have to pay for contraception for an employee! Nor should abortion be paid for with tax payer dollars! In fact, Roe v Wade ( which was based upon a lie) should be struck down! Abortion is NOT a woman’s health issue, it is a MORAL issue, contrary to Obama’s claim it is a woman’s health issue. Contraception should be cheaper for women so they can pay for their own birth control instead of expecting employers to pay for it. I am glad Judge Thomas sees this and ruled accordingly.

      1. One pill that really worked had instructions for the woman to place the pill on one knee and cover it with the back of the other knee and keep it there. Unfortunately, some wise guy said “bend over, I’ll show you a trick”.

      2. Gary,

        I don’t think you want to use that word. Look it up (the method to gain knowledge) amd see what I mean. I “think” you meant to use abstinence. I hope you have as good chuckle as I did!

        1. I had a very good laugh. Thank you. I thing you are right though, I am a little rusty with my spelling. not very good at typing either. Have a good day.

      1. There are many people walking and being very productive people that live as a product of rape. The baby is not at fault, so we don’t kill the innocent and let the perpetrator live on.

        1. I had that question when Roe v Wade was handed down. Remember that they said just that abortion should be “safe” for the mother and rare and was never to be used for birth control. Now it is not only being used as birth control, but gender control as well as allowing an imperfect baby to be killed. I believe the rape caused pregnancy rate is extremely low. We can find exceptions to anything in order to make it ok to do whatever we want to do. But even in a rape pregnancy, this is a human being, and you are murdering it-I understand the stress, the horror of carrying for nine months, a child of rape, but the child is still human, still made in God’s image, and God loves that baby. Back when it was a disgrace to have a baby out of wedlock, or be pregnant before marriage, the same issue could have been raised-so we simply kill those we deem to be somehow less than we because of their origin? As a rape victim, who fortunately did not become pregnant as a result, I am most sympathetic with the conundrum. But it still does not make the killing of this child OK. Legal, perhaps, but still not right.

        2. well said. No one is forcing women to keep a child they do not want. Just give that child the birth it deserves there are lots of people just waiting on a child to be born that they can adopt

  3. Glory be to the FATHER, to the SON, and to the HOLY SPIRIT, as it was in the beginning
    is now and forever, AMEN.

    1. TDS strikes again, worst than carona hits Dems hard.
      4 more waves before November 3rd. Dems in total lock down.
      Biden’s new agenda ( slavery ).

  4. Think God, we had a right choice decided today. Praise the Judges that are pro Life and have the knowledge to follow the Laws.

    1. If black people knew what Obama really did for them, the KKK wouldn’t need to hang him, black people would.

      1. Omg. Check the facts. We are all wrong here.
        The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to United States President Barack Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people”. … Obama accepted the prize in Oslo on December 10, 2009
        Obama is the best ever

        1. If black people knew what Obama really did for them, the KKK wouldn’t need to hang him, black people would.

  5. At least the Sup. Ct got this right (they have screwed up some of their decisions this session that is for sure).

  6. Ilyseh is right about our rights being at risk, but they are at risk by the communist left who support the terrorist organizations of Antifa and BLM. It is good to see that there are still some intelligent people on the Supreme Court.

      1. Anti-Fa is anti Nazi because they are pro communist.
        Burn Loot and Murder little children communist group.
        both are atheist groups and believe in nothing, not even themselves. So it is all right for them to kill each other. Why are they not protesting Planned Parent Hood. Their actions do not reflect their b/s.

        1. I wouldn’t worry about antifa or blm alone I’ve collected 405 skulls from them and there are 27 more from my group. I’m a more peaceful one. Your USMC combat Marine Special and Black Ops in action. Oh, I’ve been made an honorary Hell’s Angel. Patriots come in the strangest forms, but HAs and Mongols yep.

  7. I am truly glad Chief Justice Thomas ruled for The Little Sisters of the Poor! GOD BLESS HIM and the other judges.

  8. The liberal Democrats hate God! They think “abortion is a woman’s right” up to the day of birth! They want to remove “religion” from the culture like the other Communist countries! Won’t they be surprised when they stand in judgment before the very God they deny! Oh my! Can you imagine the excuses?!

  9. Thank you Mr Thomas and those who voted for this to go into effect. This should be an individual choice. I am a Pro Life person and I dont feel these things should be forced into people. I also stand for the Constitution. Thank you

  10. Nothing in life is free. If a woman wants an abortion then they have to pay for it. Not the employer. The employer did not get her pregnant. Not us taxpayers. She allowed herself to get pregnant. She has to put herself on birth control if she wants to be promiscuous. The employer or the taxpayer does not have to pay for birth control.
    It’s time to grow up.

  11. “…they are seeking to control ALL aspects of our lives” – Ordering (compelling) an individual, business or organization, particularly a non-profit, to pay for elective medical care isn’t controlling an aspect of the payer’s life? You’re free to buy (or not buy) birth control, aspirin or pink panty hose. That’s freedom. If you’re compelled to buy those things for someone else, that’s control. The Left certainly has written their own dictionary. Like their meaning of the word “Liberal.”

  12. Thank you Judge Thomas. Now if the other leftist judges would see the truth all little angels that were murdered in the name of Obama will be singing in choir hallelujah for real justice on earth. Another truth should be told that BLM stands for “destruction” of the nuclear family and is “not” at all for black life. Otherwise they would protest the killing of black babies in the mill that calls themselves heroes but get rich on selling baby parts. Thumbs down on abortion on demand. Thumbs down on advertising for baby killers. The hands of time can not be turned back and the day of reckoning will happen.

  13. Thank you Chief Justice Thomas! We need more Leaders like you who defend our freedom on religion, speech and Justice for all mankind! God Bless You! 🙏👍

  14. Thank God for Judge Thomas and others like him! He will be “Blessed”
    for his decision! People want Protection that’s their choice! Pay for it!
    Thank You, Thank Judge Thomas,
    Definately Thank God!

  15. Praise God on whom all blessings flow
    There were. Many prayers that went before that decision.
    But God is good!!

  16. Once again the Supreme Court has shown good common sense. The whole of Obama Care needs to be vacated. If the Demon-crats get control of our country again be prepared for total control of all of your life. Remember that All lives matter.

  17. Thank you Justice Thomas. A huge burden off our back… the guilt we were made to suffer by legislation… wrong has been righted today. God bless you for the wisdom of this ruling and God bless America. Praise you Lord Jesus for answering our prayers, amen 🙏

  18. Justice Thomas handed down a very good decision, the Left has a negitive ideas on most everything. Vote Republicians come November.

  19. Finally a drop of justice in a sea of Fascists. Now totally defund Planned parenthood in all 50 states. None of our tax payer dollars should be supporting these death factories. And totally defund the UN and their global police force which truly are just like the Nazi brown shirts, except they wear blue hats. And it is not just ANTIFA we are fighting. It is the Mossad and MB and MS13 and over 200 Communist organizations funded by George Soros and his son Alex. And the truth is the DNC and Pelosi and Barry Soetoro and John Brennan and Hollywood and Silicon Valley and the global corporate elite are also funding g these terrorist groups to push forward their NWO agendas. Their biggest goal is to destroy our Constitutional rights and religious freedoms. Lockk and load America .

  20. Thank you Judge Thomas!! You are holding what God made this country into!! YOu hold the Conservatives and the non-secular people’s hope in your hands!! Keep fighting for the people not the monsters that are trying to force us into dictatorship and crush the Constitution!! We stand behind you!

  21. Yes- too bad u heathen Democrats – can’t stand what’s right and just. Please leave America forever- go for Putin and see what u get. Dems are bought and paid for with no conscience. You are the scum of the earth and will share hell with Soros, sooner the better!

  22. Your comments are helping me to stay sane. I am grateful that so many see and support the truth.
    Watching the lying media is so discouraging. Thank God for your willingness to voice your feelings.
    And God especially bless bless our beloved President and Vice President. Stay safe and well…
