Alaska Daily News Letter to the Editor

July 1, 2014
Sharman Haley, retired professor of public policy at UAA, member of MTA-Anchorage

Today’s 5-4 ruling in the Hobby Lobby case is outrageous. Corporations, closely held or not, do not have religious beliefs. Only natural human beings have religious beliefs and freedoms. Allowing a person in their role as a business owner and employer to impose their beliefs on their employees violates the employees’ rights to religious freedom.

What can “We the People” do to correct this travesty? We can exercise our sovereign power to amend the Constitution clarifying that corporations are not people. And while we are at it, clarify that money is not speech, so that our duly elected representatives can regulate political contributions to protect our democracy.

Want to know more? Come to our We the People / Move to Amend booth on Friday at the Park Strip.
