Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
More of that intentionally sloppy language.
But cutting through the crap, I've said before many times to someone else here, if any company can satisfy the markers noted in the ruling, then they can & should take advantage of the relief.
Now, why was the case even necessary given Obama said everyone could keep their coverage?
Do you think he lied?
"The arts and crafts retailer Hobby Lobby proudly touts itself as a Christian company that puts people over profits. However, some staunch Christians say there's a gaping hole in that claim -- namely, China.
Products bearing "Made in China" labels are found all over the shelves at Hobby Lobby, evidence that some of its wares come from Chinese factories that have a reputation for labor rights violations and rock-bottom wages. Employees at these facilities often end up working grueling hours in prison-like conditions and never earn enough to escape poverty.
"You cannot call your business 'Christian' when arguing before the Supreme Court, and then set aside Christian values when you're placing a bulk order for cheap wind chimes," wrote Christian author and columnist Jonathan Merritt in a recent article for The Week.
Hobby Lobby remains quiet about its dealings in China. The company did not respond to requests for a list of Chinese factories it does business with, and did not provide information about what percentage of its merchandise comes from China.
Then there's China's controversial record on abortion......
Christians Call Out Hobby Lobby For Hypocrisy
Their silence speaks volumes.
If any company is "closely held" and the owners can reasonably assert that providing any or all of those BC options poses a 'substantial burden' on their free exercise of religion, the SC said they can deny coverage of any one or all 20 BC options by citing RFRA. If that's the kind of 'marker' and 'relief' you are speaking of, no one disagrees with you. If not, you'll have to do a better job of explaining.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Here the state obviously has a compelling interest to require corporations to pay for unemployment insurance; just as the court deemed the state had a compelling interest to require corporations to provide a portion of health care plans which covered certain care options. But there is clearly a path available to certain non-profits to avoid paying unemployment insurance. So using this ruling, because the court can envision a way for unemployment insurance to be paid without impacting the objecting Christian, that Christian corporation should be exempt from paying unemployment insurance.
Any flaws in that logic?
