Is Hobby Lobby a family company? Perhaps if Jon Cargill wasn't in the equation it would be, the company is more of an entrepreneurship at first glance.

In the end the SC decision was narrow and likely depended on the Conestoga Wood Products side of the case more so than the Hobby Lobby side.

Conestoga won too__where's that debate?

Missouri Governor Vetoes 'Extreme And Disrespectful' Anti-Abortion Bill

""Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have tripled the state's mandatory waiting period before an abortion to 72 hours, even in cases of rape and incest.

House Bill 1307 would have required women to wait three days after an initial consultation before being able to have the procedure. The bill also would have required doctors to present the women with materials about fetal pain and an image and audio of the heartbeat from her ultrasound.

The state's one abortion clinic is in St. Louis, so women in remote areas would have had to travel up to 300 miles twice in three days, or arrange lodging in the city during the waiting period, in order to meet the new requirements.

“This extreme and disrespectful measure would unnecessarily prolong the suffering of rape and incest victims and jeopardize the health and well-being of women,” Nixon said in a statement.“By failing to include an exception for rape and incest, House Bill 1307 demonstrates a callous disregard for women who find themselves in horrific circumstances and would make Missouri one of just two states in the nation to take such an extreme step. Lengthening the already extensive waiting period serves no demonstrable purpose other than to create emotional and financial hardships for women who have undoubtedly already spent considerable time wrestling with perhaps the most difficult decision they may ever have to make.”

In May, reproductive rights advocates and local women protested the bill for 72 straight hours, through wind and rainstorms, on the steps of the state capitol. The measure is one of more than 30 anti-abortion bills that were proposed this year by Missouri's GOP-controlled House and Senate.

Republican supporters of the 72-hour waiting period argue that the legislation is intended to give women more of a chance to change their minds before having the procedure. The bill's sponsor, State Rep. Chuck Gatschenberger (R), compared the choice to a new automobile purchase in an April hearing on his legislation.

“In making a decision to buy a car, I put research in there to find out what to do," he told colleagues.

Alito's opinion went on for pages. The solid reason for the decision hinged on religious exemptions included in Obamacare and RFRA--laws. Ginsberg opinion noticeably lacked laws to back hers up and was more emotional than based on law.
No, the Hobby Lobby ruling was very specific in stating that it applied to this case only. This case cannot be used as precedent in any other case. That is very restrictive as they usually can be used, but to avoid any and all confusion--the court deliberately restricted its' application.
Since when has the Left been concerned about Sharia law? Seems only like a month ago Progs were scoffing at people expressing concerns with it.
There is little difference between Islamic fanaticism and Christian fanaticism. Every SC decision sets a precedent. We liberals know that Sharia law will never apply in the United States; however, if the Christian fanatics have their way, it will and if you can't see that then you're dumber than I thought.
Furthermore, the Morning After Pill and IUD are not abortifacients; that's the total irony here, are they all the stupid that they don't know that? Do they all listen to Fatso Limbaugh, is that where they get their pharmaceutical information from? What a fking disgrace.

Family First, Not the Church

By David J. Stewart

"But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than AN INFIDEL." —1st Timothy 5:8

Charity starts at home. This is Biblical. 1st Timothy 5:8 warns that failing to provide for one's own family makes a man WORSE than an unsaved heathen. A father should always provide for his family first, which includes paying down any credit card debt before tithing. The idea is absurd that a struggling husband and father is supposed to tithe in the midst of an economic recession, while America's good paying jobs have relocated to foreign soil to exploit slave labor, while illegal immigrants have been deliberately allowed to flood into America's work-force (thus lowering real wages), while we're being hammered with unconstitutional taxes, while our own government is catapulting us and our children into MASSIVE national debt! The average pastor couldn't care less about these cancerous realities in America that hurt working citizens.

Some pastors are so consumed with making a name for themselves that they're willing to unfairly pressure the people in their ministry to give unwisely. I know a Baptist pastor of a large congregation who pressured all the parents to give their children's college funds to the church. 1st Timothy 5:8 teaches, "But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel." Biblically, parents are supposed to put their children's college first; NOT the church! If you give your child's college funds to the church, the Bible says you're WORSE than a heathen unsaved person (because even Godless heathens look after their kids). Proverb 13:22 states, "A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just." So while your pastor and his staff are vacationing in Hawaii or the Holy Land with your child's college tuition money, your child is struggling at a minimum wage job trying to stay afloat financially and is unable to pay for today's ridiculously high tuition costs.

Charity start at Home

This organic food company is refusing to pay for employees’ birth control

Just because a company is organic doesn’t mean it’s progressive. Exhibit A: Eden Foods.

Like Hobby Lobby, Eden Foods sued the Obama administration to try to get out of providing contraceptive coverage for its employees. Eden Foods is a Michigan-based business that bills itself as “the oldest natural and organic food company in North America.” It is solely owned by Michael Potter, a Catholic who refers to birth control pills as “lifestyle drugs” and likes to whine about “unconstitutional government overreach.”(More crazy quotes from him below.)

He told The Daily Telegram of Adrian, Mich., that he’s “grateful” for the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling. And, just in case there’s any confusion about where he stands, he called President Obama a “dictator” who’s trying to take away citizens’ rights.
