    Supreme Court Refuses To Halt Birth Control Mandate


    Does Hobby Lobby give a paid maternity leave??

    This Hobby Lobby asshole is as 'Christian' as Bin Laden.


    Thank you, President Obama, for appointing a great justice to SCOTUS.

    Hobby Lobby should start closing stores and firing people. They can go to on line sales, move distribution centers out of the US. Otherwise they are as complicit in abortion as the abortion doctors themselves. Hobby Lobby is owned by one family. What they need to do is stop this asinine idea that they owe their employees anything. The corporate enterprise is not really one big family. There is no obligation to provide jobs to people.

    Why would a corporation be allowed to force their employees to follow the employer's religious belief.

    Thanks for posting this, I will never shop at Hobby Lobby.

    How about NO Labor, slave or otherwise. Employers generally feel a sense of obligation to their employees. It's time to give that up. It's a contract, it's an exchange. You work, I pay you. Beyond that nothing. Staying in business to provide employment is one of those anachronistic ideas whose time has come and gone. When the government uses its power to change the terms of the employment to require employers to violate their own beliefs, it's time to move on. The idea that the employer occupies some sort of paternalistic position that imposes an obligation to extend themselves beyond the needs of the employment arrangement really needs to be over. It's your employer, not your mother, not your father, not your spouse.

    Neither should the employer be forced to follow the religious beliefs imposed by the government on behalf of the employees.

    That's why Hobby Lobby should look for alternatives that don't require either the company or the employees to follow any religious belief at all.

    I'm going to take several boxes of condoms and leave them in the break room at my neighborhood hobby lobby.

    It will be like tossing rock albums over the berlin wall.
