The great Oliver Wendell Holmes once observed that important Supreme Court decisions “exercise a kind of hydraulic effect.” Even if the authors of such decisions assert that their rulings will have limited impact, these cases invariably have a profound influence.
I share this concern of the Hobby Lobby ruling -- in theory, the logic might work, but fear it will be applied badly and furthermore selectively. It is too broad of a rule for it to be otherwise. BTW, a bit shallowly, the women in that picture are cute. Good P.R. move.
