    If it’s a corporation, like the 92% of “corporations” in the U.S. that meet the same test as the “limited” folks in this case, employees will be under the “corporate theocracy” that is the real issue. About that government not mandating ANY favored “religion” in the U.S., or supporting it’s tyranny over non-believers.

    “it is terrible idea freedom of religion”

    The terrible idea is allowing someone to use their “freedom of religion” to limit what other people can do.

    Are you starting to understand the concept of being overtaxed and wanting to have a say in where your money goes? Say it ain’t so.

    I’ve posted it a few times before. When one becomes dis-heartened by what’s going on in the world, and especially in this country, see the 1976 movie “NETWORK”! All least you will be able to laugh a bit!

    “They just don’t want to be forced to pay for it if it goes against their beliefs.”

    Really? But, insurance is part of overall employee compensation. Why shouldn’t employers be able to forbid employees from spending their money on booze, tobacco or high fructose corn syrup? And, before dismissing it as preposterous, look at the history of companies that built
    town#Paternalism">"model communities".

    What happened to the separation of chuch and state?

    the original planners had the right idea on that.

    “When one becomes dis-heartened by what’s going on in the world, and especially in this country…”

    I’m a strong believer in the ability of America to muddle along & assimilate the best of people who come here. That’s what makes us exceptional.

    Wages and benefits are not given by employers, they are earned by employees. The prejudices of the employer should not trump the liberty of the employee. If the employer can do this, why can’t he also dictate how his employees spend their wages?

    If this ruling applied only when the religious views on the question of employers and employee were the same, I could make out some sense in the matter.

    That, of course, does open another problem: discriminatory employment practices based on the religious views of the employee. Religious organizations like schools are now instituting ideological tests and oaths for employment, and are getting away with it by redefining the jobs as “missionary” or “pastoral” positions. In this way they can fire any employee who expresses an opinion contrary to their orthodoxy. I wonder if Hobby Lobby can now define it’s sales staff as missionaries and so require a religious test for employment.

    If Hobby Lobby were a Muslim-owned company, and wanted a pass from some federal law because that law was in conflict with Sharia law, do you think the court would have made the same decision?

    .
    It’s not limiting what other people do, it’s limiting who pays for it.
