    You have also missed the thrust of the SCOTUS decision.

    That is a true statement. The knowledge that Obama would pursue national healthcare was an oft cited reason to vote against him. Anything that hurts Obama's agenda is a good thing.

    I'm surprised there's only been this much spillover of the Hobby Lobby crap so far.

    Why the hell are you people getting so steamed about Hobby Lobby? This was a very narrow ruling. First, it was about four contraceptive medicines, all of which terminate a fertilized cell. All the other mandated contraceptives are still covered. Second, this ruling only applies to hobby Lobby. Any other companies that want these select few contraceptives to be paid for by the employee instead of the employer, have to file a case with the Supreme Court to be added to this ruling, and to do that they have to prove they're a religious company of some sort. So would all the progressives, socialists, liberals, or whatever you list yourself as on the forum, please clam the hell down??? Okay?

    What did the USA's Supreme Court decide in its recent decision about employer's religious beliefs versus the rights of employees?

    Any ideas?

    I don't see any constitutional reason why Muslim employers would be treated differently than Christian employers.

    Fair enough. If a muslim-owned business wants to avoid paying for four inexpensive BC medications for religious reasons, they are free to bring their case up before the Supreme Court.

    So we've gone from one company providing 16 instead of 20 contraceptives to Muslims not reimbursing their employees for non-halal meals?

    There is a way around that for anyone who thinks that will happen. Ask what your employer's T&E reimbursement policy is, and comply, or leave.

    (TOTALLY OT) - haven't had time to go to hockey thread. Have fun with Richards. I'm going to miss him. You guys lucked out.

    Do you know the answers to your question?

    The HL employees can still get the 4 missing forms of BC, same as they could before the ACA was passed. Nothing has changed for them except they can't be bought with their HL insurance.

    Is this the end of the world for them?

    Re: If an Employer Believes In Sharia Law

    People please stop trying to tell people what Sharia is, you are mostly ignorant:
    Misconception: Islam and The Quran orders hands to be cut off for theft

    As for an employer requiring religious practice in the work place or while working for the company, yes.

    A business run by Muslims can require that no non-Halal food be brought into the office space. No public displays of things that violate Muslim values. Block porn and other sites from internet access in the building. They could fire someone for publishing anti-Islam flyers. etc. etc. etc.

    Oh and the SCOTUS ruling is also being misunderstood.

    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.
    Actually it in some cases it is moral objection - they will not pay for an alcoholic beverage, for example. But if Muslim employers don't want to reimburse their employees for pork chops that's fine. We also, for example, shouldn't force Muslim Grocers to carry pork, or Jewish businesses to open on the Sabbath.

    Welcome to America, where some people actually prefer freedom, with all its' idiosyncrasies .

    How does an employee know the relgious faith of their prospective employer...that pre-supposes that Muslims look or act a certain way. What does a Christian look like?
