Hobby Lobby ruling does not discriminate against women

Well, unless the Obama administration screws the pooch on its followup.

Okay, there are about a million diaries here about how this is reinforcing the War on Women, how its institutionalized discrimination, how the sky is falling. It's worse elsewhere online. In my opinion, the Hobby Lobby decision was a terrible one, but it's not because it hurts women.

Below the orange squiggle, I will try to explain in sane terms why this ruling happened and what it actually means. Oh, yeah, and what the administration has to do, lest all the hair-on-fire people be actually sort of right.
