Default The Supreme Court's awful Hobby Lobby decision just spawned a very ugly stepchild

“The court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield.”

The minefield Ginsburg warned about has now detonated. On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Sean F. Cox of Detroit ruled that a local funeral home was well within its rights to fire a transgender employee because its owner had a religious belief that gender transition violated biblical teachings.

Ugly stepchild? That implies that it wasn't blatantly obvious that this kind of discrimination was the intent of the ruling.
