Quote for Day: "What Else Does This Group of Religious Boys Have in Common?"

A bunch of conservative evangelical boys, including Rick Warren and whoever’s left at the Manhattan Declaration, have filed an amicus brief in support of employers’ right to dictate the religious practices of employees. Specifically, they’re arguing that for-profit retail chain Hobby Lobby has a “religious right” to restrict the health care options available to its female employees. 
What else does this group of religious boys have in common? They all oppose women’s ordination. Coincidence?

Postscript: "Of the five leading Republican candidates hoping to take on [North Carolina Senator Kay] Hagan in November, all five said states have the right to ban contraceptives if state policymakers chose to do so."
