Enter the Contest: What Corporate Constitutional "Right" Will the Supreme Court Invent Next?
The Supreme Court has already ruled that a) corporations are people, and b) spending millions of dollars to purchase an election is a form of “speech.” Therefore, c) any limitation on corporate political spending is a violation of corporations' freedom of speech.
Next, the Supreme Court will decide whether corporations have the right to practice their religious beliefs. Specifically, can the Affordable Care Act require companies to violate their religious views by providing birth control coverage for their employees? Or would this requirement offend a company's religious sensitivities and hurt his/her feelings? Since corporations are people, they obviously have feelings and emotions.
And if the Supreme Court rules in favor of corporate religious freedom, what next?
Now, you can enter the contest and make your prediction. Maybe corporations can use the “right to assemble” to fire anyone who's the wrong gender, religion or ethnic group.
How about the Second Amendment? Can a corporation arm itself to the teeth?
