    No one is forcing the religion on anyone...IF the employees that work for HL want contraceptives they can go to the store and buy them. Or, work for someone else. Me not buying something for you that my religion is against, is not restricting you from buying it yourself.

    No forcing your religious views on your employees.

    How are the Hobby Lobby honchos forcing their relgious views on their employees? Hobby Lobby isn't telling them not to use contraception, only that Hobby Lobby isn't going to pay for it.

    They are not doing something they are obligated to do for their employees but refuse due to their personal beliefs.

    Unless the act of having sex is part of the job and that act is mandated to be performed on the business premise, the employer should not have to provide any form of contraception.

    I do not either mainly due to the fact I believe all prescription drugs and contraception should be paid for under a national pharmacare plan.

    Not following a regulatory mandate under threat of monetary penalty is not discrimination. You are using the term almost exactly backwards. Now, I could understand if you were to say that HL was firing people whom they found out were using contraception, that would be actionable...This however, is not, and the regulation that is actually forcing the real discrimination against the business here, is under dispute by more than just HL.
