and you have it backwards, unless you concede all your rights and liberties to admiralty and corporate law. The crime is in the words and what is a person. In the context you use a person iS a corporate entity, an officer. You represent your strawman fiction thereby making yourself equal to any other corporation. You concede all rights and everything is commerce at this point, including the fruit of your marriage, your children. You prove this by signing them into the laws of the sea with a birth (as in to dock and birth from the sea of the womb) certificate. So, it is when you submit to it that you become just like a corporation. Not the other way around. Pick a law you are refering to and lets identify who a person is in that reference. The definition of person changes from law to law, legality to legality. It is very important to identify this to understand any of it.

Giving corporations human rights the same as an individual is a bad idea. Now, a powerful self preserving entity can force its will on an individual, like religion. I can see how the last anti-christ can get all powerful, thanks to christians.
then youhave waged a war where peoplemust die. You are an enemy combatant. I know you not. You are not my countryman and yourallegianceis to a foreignpower. Agenda 21 and its proponents will murder 10's of millions in the next few decades and all their peons that they use to create derision and division deserve the fate of traitors. May Yah have mercy on your soul.

In history, the last time religion and government had equal power, we got the Dark Ages. We are no different from an Islamic country anymore, only our fanatics are christians. Now is time for division.

The people are so wrong about this issue it isn't even funny..... This case is at the basis not about religion but the fact that corporations have been given more rights that an average citizen has....
Do you realize that an individual can not opt out but has to take the coverage but corporations have "special" rights you the average person has ..... Doesn't anyone see this? .....
The plaintiffs maintain that the federal government, by requiring contraceptive coverage under the ACA, is infringing on their religious views. Like Hobby Lobby, many of these companies had already covered birth control under their insurance plans, but they oppose the ACA's rules requiring health plans to cover contraceptives including the drug Plan B, which they argue causes abortions. The Thomas More Law Center, a law firm "dedicated to the defense and promotion of the religious freedom of Christians," has filed 11 cases on behalf of 33 plaintiffs against the ACA contraceptive mandate. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the center asserts in an amicus brief supporting Hobby Lobby, protects employers fighting the mandate "from being forced, under threat of ruinous government fines, to fund products and services that violate their sincerely held religious beliefs."
"Forced" is not quite accurate, though, as my colleague Stephanie Mencimer reported last week. An employer doesn't have to provide health insurance to its employees at all; in fact, it's probably cheaper for a company to instead pay the tax that would help subsidize its employees' coverage obtained through the exchanges or Medicaid
Interesting. (From Mother Jones article)
6th Circuit's Judge Martha Craig Daughtrey later wrote in her opinion on the case, showed that Potter's "deeply held religious beliefs more resembled a laissez-faire, anti-government screed."
