Can we count on Scalia in "Republicans v Contraception"?

Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, observed that the Court has never held that an individual's religious beliefs excuse him from compliance with an otherwise valid law prohibiting conduct that government is free to regulate. Allowing exceptions to every state law or regulation affecting religion "would open the prospect of constitutionally required exemptions from civic obligations of almost every conceivable kind." Scalia cited as examples compulsory military service, payment of taxes, vaccination requirements, and child-neglect laws.

    Sounds like we can, or else he would have to go back and overturn his own precedent and comments.

    that's not going to be the question. the question is going to be whether a president has the authority to force a private company to provide a free product. he doesn't, that's the issue that will be argued. and you can bet scalia will believe as i do.

    There is no such court case.

    Keep repeating your lies, though. If you say something often enough, it becomes true automatically.

    Have fun.
