    Oh man, I completely forgot about China making everything these days. Its such a common thing that its easy to ignore. I really hope lawyers point out the hiprocracy of the Hobby Lobby’s christian values to the Supreme Court.

    Glad to see the message of irony and hypocrisy wasn’t missed. It’s a powerful toon.

    "At least the Chinese have jobs.

    Yes, they have all those jobs the so-called job creators moved there when they closed American factories

    The abortion rate among women in China is 29.3%, which far exceeds the average level of other developed nations.

    Why are you taking two totally unrelated versus from the bible and using them to attempt to prove a point. I have yet to see any so called atheists on this site trying to tell any Christians just how to act, but I have seen some self righteous Christians trying to tell others (not just atheists, but others of other religions as well) how to act in accordance with their own interpretations of the bible. Perhaps not yourself, (if you claim to be Christian) but others anyway. So, if the shoe fits then wear it!!

    “Why are you taking two totally unrelated versus from the bible and using them to attempt to prove a point.”

    I read it as Molon telling Masterskrain to go hang himself, but I’ll be surprised if the GoComics moderators see it that way. Knowing Molon’s history informs my opinion, of course.

    “Atheists don’t understand Christians and they aren’t shy about posting it.”

    That’s true enough, but the same can be said about Christians not understanding atheists. Lack of respect is the problem… and both sides have their share of offenders.

    Christians who demand publicly funded schools teach creationism or teacher led classroom prayers>, can expect pushback from those who don’t agree. Not all of whom are atheists…

    Employer insurance is part of your compensation. Most employers split the cost of insurance with the employee, but the reality is that the whole amount is considered compensation. The whole amount is granted tax exempt status by the government.

    So, what next? Let corporations go back to paying their employees in scrip that can only be spend on company approved products at the company store?

    This cartoon is offensive, prejudicial, and wrong.

    I don’t get it. Not not the point of the toon but why we, who have pressed to inflict capitalism of the world, when our success in that endeavor penetrates our enemies strongholds, must bemoan the fact that the economic policy does not mesh perfectly with religious beliefs.

    The USA pressed for Chinese inclusion with the hopes that it would change the oppressive nature of the government (talk about hypocrites).

    But in our country, the government can make no law establishing religion nor limit the practice thereof. So if my religion does not allow for abortion then I should not have to pay for yours. I’m not saying you can not get one just pay for it yourself.

    It’s my company, I pay for the insurance, It’s part of your compensation package and the contents of that package are at my discretion not the governments. You are free to supplement that package in any way you wish at your own expense.

    “It’s my company, I pay for the insurance, It’s part of your compensation package and the contents of that package are at my discretion not the governments. You are free to supplement that package in any way you wish at your own expense.”

    Compensation is compensation, IMO. Do you know what your employees need or want better than they? Is a nanny employer is better than a nanny state?

    @Uncle Joe

    Uncle Joe that isn’t the point. Do I know what my employees “want”? Sure. Is it my responsibility to provide their every want? no. I offer a “compensation package” that includes the annual salary, maybe a retirement plan, maybe a health plan and so on. Those plans are at MY expense and so I pick the contents of the plan. When you and I negotiate for the job – again my company my requirements for your work how many hours I expect you to work, the performance I expect from you and so on and then I offer X dollars and Y benefits.
    <br.
    OH, my plan does not include dental or vison care? Buy your own or work some where else. Why is contraception that is based on removing a fetus rather than preventing conception ( the definition of contraception after all ) any different. You can purchase any number of supplemental policies.

    So rather than have the government force me to violate my conscience (you would freak out if the government forced you to do something that did that to you ) you could negotiate more money. Just how valuable are your services anyway?

    Or seek employment somewhere else.

    See the difference? It is not a “nanny” employer when you are given a choice. You are free to provide for yourself anything you want. I will include “this” in your compensation package. On the other hand the government wanting to provide all things across the board via taxes, making a “standard” that everyone must be satisfied with lumping us all into one box is wrong.

    So tell me why I as a senior male must have a policy that requires coverage for .. say .. mammograms? I pay for it and will never use it.

    Or is it that you want someone to tell you your every move?
