SCOTUS Sides With Hobby Lobby To Deny Women's Rights

The Supreme Court says corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.

The justices’ 5-4 decision Monday is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law. And it means the Obama administration must search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies’ health insurance plans.

Contraception is among a range of preventive services that must be provided at no extra charge under the health care law that President Barack Obama signed in 2010 and the Supreme Court upheld two years later.

Delta Pulls Ads From Daily Show Following Catholic Complaint

The Daily show calls attention to a "Battle for the War on Women." While multiple states roll back the equal pay and health rights that women have come to enjoy, Fox News relegates the "war on women" to the rank of "phony" political fight. And in the process, one of their bits enrages the Catholic League, (the same guy who claimed victims of child abuse are a bunch of greedy, bigoted whiners), which prompts Delta Airlines to pull their ads from the show.

Jon Stewart's response? "I’m not going to censor myself to comfort your ignorance." Check out the offending video...

[Humor]
From the 2011 Tony Awards comes a musical number from the "Book of Mormon" musical on Broadway. Ever wonder what a Mormon believes? This is a particularly interesting issue because it's hard for the church to oppose a musical that is, technically accurate yet in its deadpan glory is off-the-hook hilarious... see for yourself!
