    HEre is a directory for investors that are inclined toward "Socially Responsible Investing"
    http://michaelbluejay.com/sri/

    So IF I were a conscientious Catholic investing in health insurance companies that now according to Obama's RULES must GIVE contraceptives.. would I want to invest in that company?

    NO!
    Would if it became a broadly known MSM biased aspect shared with more investors NOT affect stock values?

    Could I make millions shorting those stocks?

    Hmmm.....

    I mean look what happened to BP's stock after the spill?

    So I'm thinking of starting such a ethically responsible directory of companies that
    a) are not health insurance companies that "give" contraceptives under Obama's rules!
    b) NOT employers that approve of free contraceptives

    These two characteristics are NO different then the above "socially responsible"!
