    What about refusing to pay for health care unless you get it at a sex-segregated clinic? Or have the care performed by a physician of the same sex?

    I can think of tons of examples.
    And someone who objects to all of that would be forced to work there? Not in this country. It's not different than if your employer says you are not allowed to have facial hair. If you want a beard, you don't work there.

    Do people think that all of a sudden every workplace in this country is going to turn into a radical religious free for all?

    I've never seen so much paranoia and hysteria on any non-consequential matter for almost all of us in years.

    If an employee does not believe in Sharia Law and its beliefs or certain parts why couldnt that employee be fired or certain benefits not given to them?

    The hysteria continues! I didn't know employers were allowed to make laws in the first place, let alone sharia law.

    According to the recent S.Ct. decision, a legal argument could be made for that, since the company can't be forced to expend any $ for anything that goes against its owner's religious beliefs. Paying women equally, paying for birth control, providing equal benefits to female employees, paying for ins. that provides any medical procedure that sharia law frowns on, etc.

    They cannot be forced to violate Sharia law unless the state can show a clear and compelling need that cannot be met with less invasive means.

    Sharia Law is a religious belief. Its a moral code.

    Seriously, of all the stupid things people have responded to in my time watching forums, the notion that not giving someone something that violates your religion somehow magically equals banning them from having it has to be one of the most idiotic arguments I've seen seriously, widely advanced by the partisans of either side. This is the equivalent of the Conservatives who claim that any time a public school decides not to have a public prayer that Christians are being persecuted.

    No.

    Should an employer that believes in Sharia Law be mandated to provide pork to its employees?

    Answer carefully, because if you say no, then people will have to purchase pork with their own money!!! OMFG, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!

    Personally, I;m pretty cool with the HL decision. Its nice to see evangelicals in a minority position these days.

    But I find it funny that the people who are screaming loudest about religious liberties would absolutely go ape**** if a case regarding a muslim owned company refusing to reimburse non-halal meats for traveling employees reached SCOTUS.
    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.
