Sonuvagun. SCOTUS actually got one right! And without Scalia!

The Supreme Court has ruled that the Little Sisters of the Poor don't have to violate their religious beliefs by paying for birth control that results in abortion. The decision was unanimous.

The Court ordered the Obama administration to find a way to accommodate the order's religious objections "while still ensuring that the affected women receive contraceptive coverage seamlessly."

While that sounds to me perilously close to absurdly finding a constitutional right to have one's employer pay for birth control, the fact remains that the ruling- and in particular its unanimous character- represents a major victory for the First Amendment and a major defeat for the Obama administration's war on religion.

For which, huzzah.
