    Go to Oklahoma.

    And I bet your employer doesnt object to the content of your meals based on religious doctrine. Maybe devout Muslims may chafe at buying bacon for employees on the road.
    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.

    Sharia (read post #10) is a legal code also. Which means, it seeks to supplant in importance the law of the land.

    Hubby bobby or wahtever that stupid store's name is didn't seek to supplant the law of the land. the fact that the Constitutional Court decided that it was legal means it is legal to do what they wanted to do. hence, not against the law.

    Right, it's still in the works for for-profit corporations, and isn't the end of the world in any case given how stupidly cheap these 4 BCs are anyway.

    They can't enforce sharia law anymore than Hobby Lobby can stop people from having abortions. It's kind of an ass backwards comparison. The left is trying to force Hobby Lobby (the employer) to pay for abortions. You are asking if the employer should force their beliefs on employees. That's backwards. I don't know of any company in this country that forces their religion on employees.

    While I voted "no", the USSC made that a definite possibility now.

    You miss the point of the decision.
    This decision absolutely sets a precedence that if an employer's feels his beliefs are compromised when participating in any federally mandated program they can now say no.
    I fully expect to see lots of cases in the courts in the months to come.
    The religions that are more extreme will be the more likely test cases and Muslim employers who have deep convictions about Sharia law are very likely candidates.
    Christian scientists have been pretty quiet about this ruling so far, but expect that is going to change DRASTICALLY very soon...They have a lot of wood to cut with this saw the SCOTUS just handed them. If you work for a company owned by Christian Scientists you soon may not be covered for vaccinations or blood transfusions...etc.
    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in her dissent, called the majority opinion a "decision of startling breadth."
    We are about to find out just how startling and just how wide that breadth will be.

    Not to mention the dietary restrictions orthodox Jews may choose to impose on their employees.

    Employers should be able to opt out of ACA anyway, as should the entire American population, so I don't see the problem.

    All you can see is how much you hate "Obamacare", so in your eyes anything that hurts the ACA, even slightly, must be great.

    The precedence sent down with this decision may well have ramifications we have hardly begun to imagine,

    Only if all its employees are adherents to Islam.
