Letter to the editor | Do businesses own us?

First, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are people. Now the court is ruling that corporations have religion and that the religious values of corporations trump the religious values of employees.

That’s what the court ruled in giving Hobby Lobby the religious right to deny birth control coverage to its 13,000 employees. It used to be that people owned corporations.

But now it looks like corporations own people because the religious rights of corporations come first.
