What Atrios Said about the Contraception Case before the Supremes

Atrios, in his usual pithy way, gets it:
I'll let the lawyers chat about the actual legal issues, though on these sorts of things I think it's mostly pointless. It ain't about the law, it's about the outcome. The issues are whether we privilege a specific set of supposedly Christian beliefs* (the Court would never do it for any of those other "fake" religions), and whether medical care for women is as important as medical care for men.

*Nor would they do it for most supposedly Christian beliefs, just the ones relating to restricting and punishing female sexuality, because that's all it's about anymore.
That's right. Don't want people having sex, especially the sluts.
