HL isn't violating the law. Their claim won in front of the Surpreme Court and they are not required to cover certain of the contraceptives mandated. They are not in violation of the law.<quoted text>
Why should I be happy that HL is being allowed to violate the law AND the 1st amendment rights of their employees?
the law says that any company the size of HL is required to provide health insurance. The law requires health insurance to cover BC, specifically a list of 20 forms. The name of the business is HOBBY Lobby, not "Church" Lobby. They have NO business telling their employees that they are not going to obey the law and provide the legally mandated coverage.
Oh, and yes I do get to say what is and is not a rational religion. I am not saying that everyone must only worship in a rational religion, but I can and will identify those religions that are not rational, for the betterment of all mankind.
They are not violating the First Amednment rights of their employees. No religious belief or practice is being violated by Hobby Lobby NOT covering 2-4 types of contraceptives. They are not telling the employees they cannot use them nor are the employees enjoined from obtaining them in any way.
Question to you (and 'passing by', and 'lides'): You have told me in no uncertain terms that you (all) believe that this HL thing is a free exercise violation against the employee's religious beliefs, and one or two of you have called me several variations of "stupid" beacuse I don't agree with this "obvious" conclusion you've drawn.
If we have such and obvious free exercise/First Amendment violation here, where are the plaintiffs? I mean, Hobby Lobby employs a large number of women, and I've yet to read about an individual suit OR a class-action suit from any of them on this "obvious" cause of action?
Where are the plaintiffs? Why no lawsuits? Maybe the attorneys know something you three don't.
