Yeah, they’re still at it… The Radical Christian Religious Right vs. well, everybody else.
So they’ve decided to push THEIR beliefs to the top of the Federal Flagpole, and just expect that everyone will salute. They’re going to make the Supreme Court of this Nation….(Let’s not forget that FREEDOM OF RELIGION…OR… NOT TO HAVE A RELIGION) was a big part of how our Forefathers founded this country) decide on an issue that only THEY hold dear, and not so much for everyone else. To decide, AGAIN, if EVERYONE should have the RIGHT of OPTION to seek Birth Control if they so desire. And to have that right – as part of a healthcare plan that they must PAY for – in the form of “deductions/contributions” from their paychecks.
The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to referee another dispute over President Barack Obama’s health care law, whether businesses can use religious objections to escape a requirement to cover birth control for employees.
The court will consider two cases. One involves Hobby Lobby Inc., an Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain with 13,000 full-time employees. Hobby Lobby won in the lower courts. TAKE NOTE HERE: (More employees….)
The other case is an appeal from Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., a Pennsylvania company that employs 950 people in making wood cabinets. Lower courts rejected the company’s claims. TAKE NOTE HERE: (Fewer employees…)
(Wouldn’t you think it’d be the other way around? Anyway, I’ll continue…….)
The court said the cases will be combined for arguments, probably in late March. A decision should come by late June.
This should be a real NO-BRAINER, and HERE’S why:
Hobby Lobby calls itself a “biblically founded business” and is closed on Sundays. Founded in 1972, the company now operates more than 500 stores in 41 states. The Green family, Hobby Lobby’s owners, also owns the Mardel Christian bookstore chain.
So “what if”… Hobby Lobby, a self-declared “christian-owned, biblically founded business” (dear lord, protect us from ourselves) has 13,000 employees, ALL NON-christian…?
QUESTION: Does the owner of this business have right to unilaterally chose to cram HIS “Christian” religion down the throats of his non-christian employees? Do THEY play no part, have no voice in this issue? Remember, it’s 13,000 to one.
You know, DEMOCRACY and all that…. the Majority Rules…..the Founding Principles of this Country…. or does it?
Can one employer force ONE, HANDPICKED ISSUE of their own religion onto every single one of the people who work at that company?
Right or Wrong? THAT’S why it SHOULD BE a no-brainer. We ALL know it’s wrong.
I’m gonna stop here.,……. I really, really, really hope we get this one right.
