You are the one who told me to download Firefox and then add on ad-blocker. Best advise I have received in the last 5 years. Thanks again, I can't believe how much better it is.

There is a war of support in the USA. For me any company that supports any anti-gay anti-freedom policies or law I will not shop there and would drive 50-100 miles to avoid shopping there.

Well, your fellow citizens at HL believe the ACA mandate RE: contraception is "unconstitutional".

But, they're wrong, because you disagree with them.

LOL

Yet they invest in contraception in their employees 401k plans. They had zero problems with that but now this? Me thinks hobby lobby protest too much.

Red herring.

They probably didn't even know about it until someone at Mother Jones spent time on it.

Certainly doesn't vitiate their case. It'll be an MSNBC news item tonight, but only to them and their 10 viewers.

No, they are wrong because they are attempting to thrust their religious moral objections onto others.

Without an individual ability to make one's own choices, religious and otherwise, we have no freedom.

What religious beliefs are they forcing on others?

HL doesn't subsidize BC in their current health plan offerings, and they don't want to be forced to buy it now.

I don't see anyone being made to swear fealty to anyone's religion here, lides.

Agree.

Who's ability to make choices, other than HL's, are at risk here?

They are rejecting employees abilty to make their own healthcare choices based upon a religious objection by the employer. This isn't difficult, Dan.

Should I have a vote in whether you have free speech, in deciding what religion you may worship, or whether you may own a firearm? Of course not.

Do you ever tire of being wrong? Hobby Lobby currently covers 16 of the 20 drugs covered under the ACA, and their rationale behind opposing the other 4 is based upon junk science. http://www.salon.com/2014/03/25/4_things_you_...

No, they are just being prevented from holding and acting upon their own religious beliefs because of objections by the employer. Such a ruling would be damaging to individual freedom.

Would you support a Christian Scientist employer being able to provide insurance with the stipulation that it not be used for surgery?

The employees. If the employer may elect to have their religious morality trump that of their employees, there has been an infringement of the employees free exercise.

HL employees are being enjoined from procuring BC?

I didn't know that. How are they prevented from procuring BC, lides?

"No, they are just being prevented from holding and acting upon their own religious beliefs because of objections by the employer. Such a ruling would be damaging to individual freedom." "there has been an infringement of the employees free exercise"

Whose religious beliefs mandate that one should receive insurance benefits through their employer? Can you cite that religious teaching? I've never heard it, let alone seen it.

Have you ever notice that tools tend to abbreviate everything?
Dan, they are being denied coverage mandated by law on the basis that the owners object upon religious grounds. Please, try to keep up.

No one's religious beliefs mandate such coverage, federal law does. That being the case, it is the right of the individual to choose to avail themselves of the birth control or not. The company has no interest in projecting it's religious morality upon employees. Only a true dullard would claim that it did.
