Regarding your July 1 editorial “ Hobby Lobby ruling expands corporate rights”: Contrary to your assertion, the Supreme Court did not invent the concept of “corporate personhood” in 2010. The concept has been recognized since before the Revolution. In 1888, the court held that, “Under the designation of ‘person’ there is no doubt that a private corporation is included.” It was written into the U.S. Code in 1948. It has long been the law of the land.
If you disapprove of the concept, then you should also disapprove of New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, in which a corporation sued a natural person.
