    They’re concerned about what you might decide to do with them. Because, you know, women.

    They opened Pandora’s box on this one. It is just a matter of time before business owner’s who are religious zealots try to impose their will. At least it will provide employment for many surplus lawyers who are looking for clients.

    She must be an employee of Hobby Lobby.

    What a hoot.

    Corporations couldn’t care less about your ovaries….or you either.

    It’s all about the bottom line, nothing more.

    Y’know, I may not agree with Hobby Lobby’s exercise of religious freedom in all respects, but I will say that they close on Sunday, arguably a big shopping day, not because of law or unions like auto dealers, but because it’s “the Lord’s day.” and yes, there is one in our neighborhood so I know for a fact that they are closed on Sundays. They’re not firing employees who USE birth control. And no matter how flawed their science is in making the decision not to pay for birth control through insurance plans, it is in keeping with the principles of the owners to decline to pay for birth control. Birth control PILLS are not a basic human right, not matter how shrilly and insistently the militants claim it is. While it can well be argued that no woman should be forced to have children or forcibly prevented from having children, there are many alternatives to having someone else pay for your birth control PILLS.

    If the Greens are Hobby Lobby, if the wall of corporate protection between company and owner indeed has been breached, then technically a person who is injured on Hobby Lobby property can now sue the Greens and hold them personally responsible.

    Oh, I’m fine with Hobby Lobby closing on Sunday. But that’s not getting a free pass from God to break a law that applies to all other businesses. Just yesterday a number of businesses started suing to be able to discriminate against gays in states where that’s illegal. Women, you’re next. Blacks? We’ve already seen that get to the supreme court, but now that they’ve changed their minds on corporate religion, maybe that has changed too. And since we don’t know what legal justification the conservatives on the supreme court used to determine that contraceptives (but not immunizations?) are fair game, this will keep a lot of lawyers very happy until each kind of bigotry separately works its way up to the supreme court again.

    How long before a “closely held” company owned by Jehovah’s Witnesses refuses to cover blood transfusions? Or fundamentalist Christians refuse to hire gays? We already have had Moslem cab drivers refusing to give rides to passengers carrying alcohol.

    You got it, the Roberts SCOTUS has gone too far to the right, it’s really time to change the makeup of congress, the Tea Party (American Taliban) has got to go while we still have a chance.

    They need not be religious zealots, just claim beliefs and try to get exemptions for thing they do not like/want to provide.

    The fight for forcing corporations to freely pay for birth control is not about birth control at all. It is so easy to see that this is about the government’s ability to dictate and control us. Birth control is very affordable. If a Christian company doesn’t want to be a part of paying for what they consider to be sin, should the government really be able to force them?

    Which is more important in principle, to protect religious freedom or pay for a fairly cheap product that nearly everyone can afford to buy on their own? And even if they can’t aford it their are clincs that hand them out for free.

    Wake up. Our freedoms are under attack.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t get involved in anything political, and this is a POLITICL
    ISSUE. JW’s obey the law of the land,
    PERIOD.

    Irrelevant. The reality is that this ruling could be used by fundamentalist Christians, Moslems, Christian Scientists, or other sects to avoid providing necessary health care.

    Reminds me of many Muslims who are a bit more strict about it. All in the Bible too. Only this is just another level of inquisitiveness.
