Letter to the Editor
The Supreme Court decided to take up the issue to consider whether a company can refuse to provide contraceptive care to female employees on the grounds that doing so would violate its religious freedom. Really?
To be decided is if a corporation, and artificial person, can assert a religious right to worship and artificial deity and deny real women who are real people birth control coverage in the real world. Are you kidding me?
I am a Realist. My temple is the universe. Reality is my God. If we let the unreal have dominion over the real then at some point the angry hand of Darwin will strike us down and punish us with extinction, which is excommunication from the real world. I think it’s time we set aside the artificial world and put reality first. We need to live in right relationship with reality. If we don’t the universe is going to leave us behind.
