do you believe corporations have an obligation to act in an ethical manner with regards to issues like pollution, honesty with customers, and truthfulness to stock holders?

Clearly, they do


Agreed. Can a person have religious beliefs? Legally, a corporation is a person, so why can't they?

Corporations have no 5th Amendment rights, according to the Supreme Ct.

To Scalia

quote:

constitutionally required religious exemptions from civic obligations of almost every conceivable kind


compulsory military service...already in

to the payment of taxes...already in

to health and safety regulation such as manslaughter and child neglect laws.. wth


compulsory vaccination laws, drug laws, and traffic laws...really?

to social welfare legislation such as minimum wage laws, child labor laws, animal cruelty laws, environmental protection laws, and laws providing for equality of opportunity for the races." ...u got to be shitting me

He is just labeling all these things to push through a non logical conclusion. For a Supreme Court Justice this is really sad.

compulsory vaccination laws


Also already in, plus legitimate medical = exemptions and exemptions for the dullards who think vaccines cause autism.

traffic laws


The Amish take horses and buggies onto highways. Those aren't normally roadworthy vehicles.
