Re "Birth control exemption upheld" (Page A1, July 1): Recent Supreme Court decisions regarding religion have done with gavel and words what Islamic fundamentalists have been trying to do with weapons: imposing one's religious dogma on others.

This is nothing more than a Christian jihad against non-believers. The Founding Fathers knew the importance of separation of church and state, and the Roberts Court has gone out of its way to impose its Christian belief on others.

The Hobby Lobby decision allows so-called religiously owned private companies to seek exemption from anti-discrimination laws and other federal mandates. Heck, Walmart fits the parameters set forth in the court's decision. What if one's beliefs included that woman should not be in the workforce or that child labor is acceptable. What if they had environmental laws that went against their beliefs?
