This is so NOT right. It is so NOT American. I am so disgusted with these activist judges who decide how people want to run their businesses. I guess if the workers wanted the morning after pill they could go work at the Post Office. GET A LIFE, the guy invested his money and time to run a company that is valued based on a belief system, THIS IS AMERICA, land of the free and brave, or at least it was..
I wonder what would happen if Hobby Lobby decided to pursue liquidation over this.
Three victories so far. Keep on fighting, Hobby Lobby.
No, they CAN’T “force” them to comply.
Hobby Lobby can re-arrange their business so that they are not covered by the law. It would be painful to the employees,
but no, 0bama can’t force them to do anything.
It’s a tax! Of course the government can force us to do anything, It’s a tax! the unsupreme court told us so.
It wasn’t that long ago that people were defending white only businesses with the same argument. It’s time to move on.
So... Am I understanding this right?
Once a person, let’s say a Muslim, starts a SECULAR business, lets say a RESTAURANT then he is required to sell me bacon whether he is against it on religious purposes or not?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
Every day my utter contempt and hatred for this Marxist POS administration continues to grow.
Ironically, the liberals have backed pro-life business owners into a corner in which all their "clear conscience" options hurt the worker. So much for wanting to help the worker, but we all knew this was really about power and not the worker.
“A federal judge has issued a ruling siding with the Obama administration saying that it has the right to force Hobby Lobby, a Christian-owned and run company, to pay for drugs for women that may cause abortions.”
Just wait until this guy loads the Federal Courts with his liberal justices. Also, he will throw the balance of the SCOTUS to the far left after appointing two or possibly three justices.
These are scary times . . . real scary times.
What you cited was for back when we was under the Constitution. But thanks to the voters electing and re-electing bastards such as the occupier of the White House, that situation no longer exists.
I am sorry but your comment and your tag line don’t match.
“YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT!!!!” - President Barack Hussein (Santa Claus) Obama
If you read the ruling you will find that this is not an activist judge. He correctly states that Obamacare is in uncharted waters and he correctly lays out both positions. As the first judge hearing the case, he knows that he will not be the last judge to hear the case.
However, in my not so humble opinion, the Judge missed the constitution arguments at their heart. In essence, which has higher precedence 1st amendment vs the 17th amendment? Does the right to engage in religious activity or to refrain from abhorrent activity, trump the right of the government to tax? That is the battle and the issue to be decided.
This judge just took the easy way out knowing others will decide the issue.
Remember America, the home of the brave and the land of the free? It is now a totally corrupt cesspool of political operatives, all bought and paid with OUR money.
If a corporation is a “person”, then why doesn’t it have religious freedom?
IOW, another John Roberts.
