Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Kara Loewentheil (Columbia Law School)

On The Posner Show, Sarah and Kara discuss a letter urging President Obama not to include a religious exemption in a forthcoming executive order barring federal contractors from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Kara explains why she signed the letter, and why she doesn’t believe there should be a new religious exemption. They discuss how the proposed order would interact with existing rules granting religious exemptions to religiously-affiliated contractors. And they reflect on how the Hobby Lobby case might affect provider refusals in the areas of abortion, contraception, and assisted reproductive technology. Plus: How did the boss’s religious rights come to take precedence over those of his workers?
