Socrates Cafe : What Will Be the Impact of the Hobby Lobby Decision?

Did the Supreme Court strike the right balance in the Hobby Lobby decision or open a Pandora's box of religious strife? Where do we draw the line when my freedom of religion clashes with your freedom of religion? When is a burden on a religion so substantial that the rest of society needs to bend, to accommodate? What are the limits? Join the Socrates Cafe for a lively discussion of this topic at 6:30 PM on September 2nd at the Bloomsburg Public Library.
