Jon Stewart On Hobby Lobby Ruling: ‘Final Score — Hobby Lobby 5, Whores 4. Sorry, Whores.’ (Video, NSFW)

Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show Monday (July 14) after a two-week vacation and unleashed his views on the Supreme Court ruling, declaring that Hobby Lobby could decline to cover certain contraception methods using a religious exemption (video embedded above).

Stewart’s words for Hobby Lobby and the Supreme Court were not tame as the comedian took on the craft retail giant and the five members of the court who sided with the retailer, as quoted by NewsBusters.

“Yes, the ruling came down in the case of Hobby Lobby, v. dirty, dirty contraception whores. Final score Hobby Lobby 5, whores 4. Sorry, whores. Aside from codifying the somewhat odd notion that corporations can have deeply felt religious beliefs, one thing struck me about the decision. Hobby Lobby didn’t want its employees insurance to cover certain contraceptive methods such as ‘Plan B’ because they said that method caused abortions. So the problem with that is it’s not.. What’s the word I’m looking for? True.

“At least according to the Food and Drug Administration and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, although what do they know about vaginas. I don’t think… not as much as the owners of a store that sells foam cones and glitter. Look, here’s the jurisprudence beauty part. To the court, the fact that Hobby Lobby is objecting to abortions that never actually happen doesn’t meter.

“Because as Justice Alito wrote, ‘it is not for the court to say the plaintiff’s religious beliefs are mistaken or unreasonable.’”

While Stewart had a lot of built up ammunition regarding the Hobby Lobby ruling, it was not the only target upon his return to the airwaves, according to Mediaite:

“Stewart first took on anti-immigration protestors, one of whom said Jesus, the ‘radical destroyer of the status quo’ (as Stewart put it), would never break the law.

“He moved on to the two ‘catastrophes’ in the Middle East: ISIS in Iraq, and the current bombing back-and-forth in Israel. And with Gaza between Israel and the sea, Stewart couldn’t help but wonder exactly where Palestinians are supposed to actually evacuate too.

“And with the recent smallpox scare, Stewart said, ‘Things are so f*cked up in our world, that the two happiest places in the world are Germany and Cleveland!’”

What do you think? Is Stewart overreacting to the Hobby Lobby ruling? And is the world in as *messed* up as he thinks?
