On her MSNBC show tuesday, host Joy Reid asked her guest, “Do corporations, if corporations are people and have religious views, do they have a soul?”

Reid continued: “However, a business, a corporation you form, is separate from yourself, meaning that if your corporation, for instance, were to violate one of the Ten Commandments, if it were to covet another corporation’s products or if it was to steal another corporation’s patent, it could not suffer the wrath of God, right? So how is it possible for a corporation to somehow violate the religious tenets of its faith if it is not a person and doesn’t have a soul?”

The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday in two cases challenging the Department of Health and Human Services’ directive forcing employers to offer health insurance policies that include certain contraceptives and abortion services.

Yesterday, Joy read made the case that “you’re more likely to be beamed up into a UFO or struck by lightning than find in-person voter fraud.”

The question here isn’t whether or not corporations have a soul. The question is does Joy Reid have a brain?
