Here’s a letter to the Wall Street Journal:

Regarding the left’s hysteria over the Hobby Lobby ruling (“The Political Ginsburg,” July 3): it is dangerously surreal to think that leaving individuals free to spend their money as they choose is antediluvian and cruel, but that using implicit threats of violence to force individuals to spend their money in ways dictated by political superiors – including political majorities – is progressive and kindly.
