    Hobby Lobby's 401k plan includes funds with Teva Pharmaceuticals (the company that manufactures the pills). So Hobby Lobby is actually investing in these pills and IUD's. How come no outcry over that???

    Good question, you should ask Hobby Lobby.

    And what, exactly, would the outcry be? From who? Are they directly forcing someone to do something against their religion? I'm guessing no.

    Re: If an Employer Believes In Sharia Law

    Under my plan there would be no mandate on employers to provide health insurance. There would be single payer 100% coverage on catastrophic through the federal or state government, and then I'd to the Paulson Bailout plan https://archive.org/details/KhanAcademy_PaulsonBailout that in my (not positive) opinion Geithner should have done back in 2008 creating say 5 or 10 new banks(maybe even one each state) and giving each U.S. citizen one share in these banks. My idea then would be to put the dividends from this share into a personal acct in each person's name, invested conservatively in say s&P 500 and interest bearing U.S. bonds, with the funds used by each person to pay for non catastrophic health care costs in a system where non catastrophic is a cash/charity system. Most abortions, birth control, sex changes, cosmetic surgeries, not covered by the single payer catastrophic. People can donate to charities that will cover the costs of those things if they are worried about them being available to the poor.

    ...and it's all because of what someone chose to "believe".
    This ruling is bad law and will eventually be reversed when it will need to be revisited.
    I suspect that will be sooner, rather than later.
    I see - so in other words, you've got no logic, just irrational emotion.

    You do realize, of course, that employees who work for small businesses may have no employer subsidized/provided healthcare coverage at all, let alone coverage for contraceptives and abortives, so do these people have "lesser rights" as related to contraception?

    Your view seems to have been corrupted by the belief that what the government provides you is a right. That's sad, because the minute you rely on government benevolence you've given up your rights.

    Don't be so sure that they, or others ( like the Christian Scientists) aren't going to try something just like that.
    Their lawyers now have the precedent of a SC decision to argue their case. Lower court judges look at such SC decisions as a guide to making their own decisions.
    That's nonsense, and I'm sure you know it.

    But as an example, there were many fanatics who thought that when Roe v Wade was decided there would be no limits on the abortionists. They were equally as irrational and hysterical as you appear to be now. But hey, it's great for raising money from rubes and running campaigns on the backs of the ignorant.

    Excellent poll and question. Truly thought provoking. Especially in light of recent decisions, when some segments of society are fighting current health care mandates by asserting religious beliefs (Christian, that is). If so, does that mean that in a nation where freedom of religion is practiced, that all religions will have the same right to assert their beliefs in the workplace. I believe those that see the Hobby Lobby decision as a victory may very well never realize all of its ramifications.

    What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Any exceptions made for one religion should be granted to all without preference.
