I thought that under the law businesses were people. There are many instances of the court upholding the freedom of speech for businesses, too. So, then why are they not afforded the protection of religious freedom, under the same First Amendment? I just don't get this. If it's true that corporations have no First Amendment protection, then, contrary to what the court has decided in these cases, Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association, Sorrell v. IMS Health, Inc., Pliva v. Mensing, and others can be overturned. In other words, this decision is either hypocritical and biased, or it is establishing that the court was wrong in previous cases, and therefore is basis to overturn those cases.
