ANALYSIS/OPINION:

If so-called “progressives” have their way, religious belief and expression will be restricted to homes (except bedrooms) and maybe to places of worship (“Hobby Lobby case’s First Amendment backing,” Commentary, March 21).

In the public square and on college campuses, people may mock religious faith, but expressing religious faith is verboten. Businesses may preclude employees from expressing religious faith, but business leaders may not run their companies according to personal religious principles.

In an America where there are tens of thousands of businesses, why must one work for Hobby Lobby if he disagrees with the company’s principles? For progressives (more like regressives of the Paul Marat, Robespierre era), First Amendment protection of religious liberty is OK — as long as faith is restricted to one’s head.
