Is the Pope more Powerful than the US Constitution in Deciding US Law?

SCOTUS, in the form of the 5 - man - majority Catholics, appear to be doing the will of their Pope.

What does the view of the Pope have to do with deciding the US Constitution? The only question before the Supreme Court is the constitutionality of a US law.

The Robert's Court just gave employers the right to forbid birth control coverage in your employer's group insurance coverage. 

We are seeing the institutionalizing of Biblical Law. Can we continue to decry the harm of following the Fundamentalists of Sharia Law? Do we now take an eye for an eye, as the Bible says we do?

We are seeing the destruction of Freedom of Religion and the destruction of Rights of the Individual in this Court. I honestly fear that America as we were becoming, a just and free people, is going to be lost. We will soon fall as we lose the moral ground, becoming as superstitious and fundamentalist and controlling of others as the Taliban, with the corporations calling the shots.

Our Freedom, our Voting Rights, and our Democracy is at stake, but being whittled away under the Conservatives and the GOP moves to obey fundamentalism, the Kochs and the corporations over their pledge to uphold the US Constitution.

In the past, group coverage without birth control coverage was often more expensive. Will that be true today? Will these employers shove the added expense onto the employees by taking the policy difference out of the employees share of the payment?

Will these corporations now look to their investments to limit their stock options on the makers of birth control and condoms? Will they limit their investments in sweat shops? Will they take their religious convictions to the ultimate expression of actually doing morally responsible business? Or will they continue to cheat on taxes and such?
