    Wait, Maggie. But these people are using religious beliefs to bring home a point here, not secular ones.

    You see Hobby Lobby sends it's money to China in order to receive it's goods to sell over here; however, China practices it's government enforced policy of one child only per family.

    Now David Green, owner of Hobby Lobby, has been quoted to his company's belief:

    Now seeing that Biblical principles are so important to his health care for his employees, why wouldn't it be just as important to apply the same principles to your business associates?
    its called hypocrisy and it shouldn't surprise anybody that hobby lobby is full of ****

    See, this is why I think it is a bit of a weird way he approached it. As a retailer, they could certainly elect not to carry Chinese merchandise. The abortion thing is a stretch, but China certainly has not been too friendly to Christians. Of course, a lot of consumers drive around in their Levis made in Asia in their Chevy pick up 40% made in Mexico drinking their foreign owned Budweiser with a Chinese made American flag on the antennae feeling like they are supporting America, Damn It!.

    I agree with the thoughts because I made a car purchase thinking American-made with my car; however, there were no religious stipulations that came across my mind on the purchase.

    By not judging theor fellow man, they are keeping with their Christian principle.

    If you remember your history, Christian groups having a relationship with the Chinese is kind of a pre-requisite.

    Not really. Their first obligation would be to their employees, which number around 21,000, and at least they provide benefits, as opposed to a good number of other employers in the country. If Hobby Lobby, and thousands of other retailers in the country didn't buy cheap Chinese crap to sell (which I don't like, btw), they could not compete in the marketplace, and would not exist at all.

    The difference is that in the case of buying from companies in China and rejecting Federal Government mandates is that one is a voluntary and the other is not. The company Hobby Lobby is a private company that is there is no public stock and should be treated just like a small sole proprietor business. The religious liberty of the owner is violated when being required to support an act (by the government) which violates their moral obligations.

    The example of employing gay people do not violate their moral obligations since hiring a sinner is not one. Requiring to support an particular act is one though.

    Voluntary collaboration with business associates that continuously abort babies is correct in line with their Biblical principles? How's Hobby Lobby's moral obligations concerning consummating business with people that knowingly ends babies lives? I'm looking at this from a stern, religious point of view -- just like the one David Green expressed in the OP.
