This is probably more of a rant, but I just have to respond to this insanity that was the supreme court’s decision to allow Hobby Lobby to opt out their employees from birth control coverage. Unbelievable!!!! This sounds more like a subversive means of employee discrimination allowing employers to say, “You can work for us, but only if you share our religious beliefs regarding YOUR healthcare.” For the money grubbing companies who feel like they want to get back at the government for regulating healthcare coverage in the first place, this is an open invitation to make up any “against my religious beliefs” nonsense they can think of to allow them to drop healthcare coverage for their employees and save themselves a few bucks.
This is what I think… “SCREW YOU… HOBBY LOBBY!!!!” and any other company that tries this maneuver. If you felt THAT strongly about where your money went or where it came from you should be screening your customers for their beliefs. Could you imagine a Hobby Lobby cashier saying, “Before I ring this up can you please tell me if you use birth control?” I’ll bet the owner of Hobby Lobby has no problem TAKING money from the infidel. What a hypocrite!
I plan to make a list of shame for all these companies and keep it here. If you find any and can provide some source verifying the data, PLEASE send it to me and I will add it. Let’s use the consumer power we have to boycott these companies that would deny health care based on so-called “religious beliefs”.
