    Everyone who went to work for Hobby Lobby knew their religious beliefs. They are very clearly laid out.

    So on an interview, find out if religion is part of the workplace. If it is, don't work there. Nobody is forced to work anywhere.

    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.
    That's true. But do you really want to have to deal with a corporation's religious 'beliefs' when you're looking at jobs? Do you really think an employer should be able to dictate their religious beliefs to employees?

    ((OT)) I'm still amazed at the deals Bowman has gotten this summer.
    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.

    No employer should be able to dictate that their employees follow their religious beliefs. I'm too Libertarian for that. But at the same time, I also believe that people should have the right to follow their own beliefs in the cases of privately owned or closely held corporations (such as HL).

    Bowman is kicking butt! He's one of the best if not THE best GM right now.

    Is there a federal law mandating that employers provide expenses for meals while traveling? If there is I'd need to see that to fully answer. If not, then this is a perk provided by the business and I have no issue what so ever if they want to limit it in such a way.

    How about requiring five prayer breaks per day - no working allowed, you dont have to participate, but you have to hang up the phone and stop serving customers when the call to prayer sounds - irregardless of you closing a deal to get commission or bonus.
    Have no issue with this. If they want to run their business this way, integrating five required break periods a day, I have no problem with that.

    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?
    Thanks to the abomination of ACA, I'd have to see if there was any government programs already in place that would provide these choices to an employee of such a business, allowing for the business to not pay for that portion of their health care while still making sure the person is covered. If it was, then no problem. If it wasn't then likely it would be a problem.

    If ACA wasn't the law, I'd say that the company absolutely should be free to seek out an insurance plan for their employees that have those restrictions and if they could find it then they could offer it. Insurance from your employers should be a benefit, not an entitlement.

    It should be allowed, as long as no conditions break laws or violate rights.

    Well, it looks like the question here and it's correlation to the Hobby Lobby case has been thoroughly destroyed.

    Sure. They own the business. But then, they cannot make people work for them.

    Apparently the OP thinks that the First Amendment is selective.

    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?
    The big problem with this ruling is that Hobby Lobby didn't need to prove that these contraceptive methods were abortion... they merely had to say that they BELIEVED that they were abortion.
    The SCOTUS decision is not based on scientific fact ...it is based on a BELIEF.
    They believe not just that abortion is wrong they also believe that these four contraceptive methods are abortion.
    BTW they are not.
