    Re: Supreme Court backs Hobby Lobby in contraceptive mandate challenge

    Remember when the most popular liberal mantra used to be telling the government to "Stay OUT of our bedrooms!!!"
    yeah, those were good days. Any chance we could go back to that? please?

    I'm afraid iguanaman is two steps away from self-immolation on this issue. Calm down pal. If the women want to have sex that badly they will squirrel away enough money to get what they need. trust me

    SCOTUS was only looking at the Constitution. China was irrelevant.

    Only if they say this

    Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill.
    If they were really true to their statement, they would have never open a company in China. They wasn't force to do business in China, and they knew the conditions of the Chinese government before they open shop. So please explain to me why they chose profit over beliefs?

    Its funny how people can place their Christian beliefs in the closet when they can make money

    And even if HL did refuse those supposedly 'medically necessary' birth control meds, they would not prevent anybody from getting them some other way than through HL's group insurance plan. There was a time in America that almost nobody's health insurance covered routine stuff that people could pay for out of pocket--doctor's visits, routine vaccinations, routine prescriptions, etc. And such things, including healthcare insurance, were a hell of a lot more affordable then too because the free market will manage to find a way to offer products people can afford to buy or else the products can't be sold and have no value.

    Stay out of our bedrooms, but pay for anything that results from activity in our bedrooms.

    Interesting thought process, yes?

    Bull crap. They made their ruling while standing on partisan pulpits. Hence the usual 5-4 conservative/liberal split.
