Hurray for the corporations! Huzzah! Corporations now have freedom of religion. Isn’t this exactly what our founding fathers hoped for when they penned and approved the Declaration of Independence and then our Constitution of the United States so long ago?
And now here we are on the anniversary of that august dawn of our country’s birth and the Supreme Court has not only since awarded corporate entities the right to person-hood but also the rights to free speech through the spending of unlimited amounts of money (something that a king might do, say what?) and now the corporate state has the right to exercise their freedom of religion by infringing upon the freedom of others to express their own religious beliefs. (something akin to a king’s power, may I have an amen please?)
But the great irony of all is not so much that these things we call corporate entities now have the freedom to exercise their religion…or that they are even considered to have the ability to have a religion or a belief system for that matter.
No, the great irony is not that corporations can possess religious morality but that they also have the power to kill with impunity! For I am an owner of a GM vehicle! And what price have they paid (that hasn’t cost them our own bailout money) for their lies, poor craftsmanship and negligent homicide?
So let there be light, for the mystery of creation is no more. This is how it is done…
Corporations have not become people and the Supreme Court of the United States has not fashioned them in our own image.
Nay, I say to you…They are become Gods!
