    Do you mean groups of people or entities?

    Entities.

    I'm referring to freedom of religion, which obviously applies to churches and other organized religious groups, and freedom of the press, which would obviously apply to newspapers, etc. (most of which are also corporations), and which is virtually the same thing as freedom of speech.

    I see you didn't disagree with my statement. Good to know you're on my side.

    Corporations ARE people, and Congress shall make NO LAW.

    Why is this so hard for you to accept? Oh! That's right, you're a partisan leftist...

    Oh no. I do not disagree with him at all. I'm just shocked at how many people who are against Roe V. Wade support his statement on what the job of SCOTUS is.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
