    NO , this is wrong !

    Sharia Law belongs NOT here at home, not even on the surface of the moon (its an innocent place, not in need of hatred) .

    Are you assuming I'm an atheist? FYI, except for when I was deployed or was otherwise physically unable to attend, I've missed exactly two Worship Services at the Church of which I'm a member since 1993. You should be more careful to refrain from making assumptions about those with whom you disagree.

    My point wasn't that the government is to hold people accountable for Christian teachings - my point was that HL's claims were hypocritical.

    The US government is secular and it is responsible to balance the interests of all its citizens.
    You should check out how many people on the Right - and specifically down in the Bible Belt - believe that our government was always meant to be a "Christian" government run on Christian rules and values.

    If the owners of HL find this to be objectionable, it is within the purview of the government to see that their interest is balanced with those who do not. This is by far not the first time that our government has refused to force someone to do something they find morally reprehensible. Does the term 'conscience objector' mean anything to you?
    FYI, the term "conscientious objector" does not refer to businesses and corporations, but to INDIVIDUALS. Oh, but I forgot - most of today's Right believes that businesses and corporations should have the same rights as individual Americans...never mind that businesses never, ever get sent to jail or find themselves in firefights with opposing enemy forces.

    The HL case was not about vasectomies. It was about the type of birth control that causes an abortion. And the women involved are not forbidden to use it.
    If you'll check, the day after the HL ruling, the conservatives on the Supreme Court "clarified" their ruling so that the exemptions that businesses want apply to ALL forms of birth control used...

    ...without regard to the fact (ruled "mostly true" by Politifact) that nearly 60 percent of women who use birth control do so for MORE that just "family planning".

    All I know is that I'm starting my own company and I'll let the goverment know that my religious beliefs mandate child labor and discriminatory pay. I'll use Atlas Shrugged as my gospel.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    There are so many things wrong with this question it is hysterical, but yeah, sure, an employee is there by choice, so, if they choose to remain there, that's on them.

    Secondly, no, because sharia also means that you cut off peoples' hands for stealing. It is not just a law affecting whether or not a certain medication is dispensed, it also dictates that you're going to behave in a certain way towards yourself and others. Not to mention that if you're a non-muslim, you'll be killed should you offend the muslim store owner. You must accept your role as a dhimmi.
    I think the term you're going for here is "redundancy."

    It's wrong? In the USA, people no longer get to choose where they want to work? That's a new one on me. When did that change?

    This may come as a surprise to you but some people either have the choice of 1 low wage job (e.g. at hobby lobby) or to be jobless and wait for benefits. Many people don't even have that choice (hence high unemployment). They don't have the resources to just pass up on a job offer and wait for another.

    This may come as a bigger surprise to you, but most people who work in retail have lots of choices. If there is a Hobby Lobby in town, there are probably at least 100 more retail stores within 15 minutes of Hobby Lobby.

    "Women can be beaten for being in public unescorted" is not a rule an employer can impose on its employees. Doesn't matter if you chose to work there.

    At 6% unemployment, there's still a lot of other people looking for work. "Just get another job" is an easy thing to say when you have one.

    How come you don't just get a job that pays millions?
