    How sad that we don't get basic religious freedoms...
    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.

    That doesn't mean they're all hiring, and it certainly doesn't mean that all people who get a job offer with hobby lobby have a choice about where they can work. If there was all this choice on offer, then why is unemployment so high? Or do you just believe all unemployed people are just lazy...?

    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.
    Just to be clear, the word "Sharia" means "path to the watering hole" in arabic - so, in translation, Sharia Law would be the moral path to the promised land, or something equivalent. The actual "laws" are fanatical because of the "prophets and holy men" who penned them along the way.

    In my view, the court ruling does no such thing. The court ruling says that the government, in a very narrow set of facts, cannot impose a condition on an employer that is in contravention of that employer's faith teachings. It doesn't say that the employer is entitled now to force all his/her employees to follow the teachings of his/her faith at all. So your suggestion that the court ruling could force female employees to wear burkas is nonsense because a) an employer cannot force an employee to take up a particular religious belief and b) an employer cannot force an employee of his/her faith to be a strong adherent of that faith. Your analogy would indicate that Hobby Lobby now could force female employees not to use birth control of any kind, not to have sex out of marriage, not to marry gay partners, etc. and we all know that's nonsense.

    Some common sense hopefully will prevail here one day soon.

    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?
    I don't need a job that pays millions.

    There are, however, millions of retail jobs.

    Right, that's why you don't make millions. You don't need millions!

    There are millions of retail jobs. And millions more who have no job at all. If you fill every job opening in the country, you're still left will millions of unemployed people.

    That's why we should tax the businessmen less and have less regulation on businesses, so that our country will be more attractive to potential investors. Thanks for walking right into that one!

    Which has absolutely no bearing on the issue at hand! Completely unrelated. We're discussing the impact on people when businesses are as they are now.

    You mentioned that there are more unemployed people than jobs for them to fill. That allowed me to change the discussion's parameters.

    I was just looking at a conversation about whether the New Deal or wartime spending ended the Great Depression. The name of the thread? "Who Do You Think Our Greatest President was?" Or something like that. Point is, discussions change quickly on forums.
