Actually not a terrible analogy. Likely the first and last time I'll ever say that to you, Rex

Shouldn't their employees have the right to choose? Sounds like Hobby Lobby is restricting the freedom of choice for their employees.

Name a company that doesn't have negotiated coverage plans.

I just don't understand their logic. They're a business. They're not a religious institution.

All of them once Obamacare kicks in. That's what this is about.

No, they're not.

You don't seem to understand how it works. If they don't like the policy, nobody is forcing them to work there. By the same token, Hobby Lobby doesn't owe them a job. That's why it's called at-will employment.

I support HL's position. And the hypothetical atheist's position.

The idea that government should have the power to force one to purchase an unwanted product is the problem here.

Umm no.

The employees have the freedom to buy their own health coverage. They are not contractually obligated to sign onto Hobby Lobby's insurance.

Pacifism isn't covered by the first amendment.

Guess what? That's the result of letting "someone else" pay for your care. They get to make the choices. If employees don't like the rules laid down by the providor, they should strive for independence.

You say that as though some major religions don't have pacifism, Just War, etc. as major tenets of belief.

Aye. A fair point.

But it should be noted we do not make pacifists fight in the army. IOW we don't force them to participate in the activity.

Someone paying taxes does not participate in any given activity. Tax dollars (with the exception of MEDI/SSI) aren't dedicated. Income taxes are fungible. Meaning... the pacifist cannot detect where their particular dollars are being spent by the government. That is not true for an individual making a purchase of a specific product or service on behalf of another individual.

Further, tax revenues are removed from the individual. After paying the IRS, the pacifist is no longer in control of that money. And the individual hold NO decisionary power over how that money is spent. The individual taxpayer is not directing the money to war material. The government is doing that. As such the pacifist bears no responsibility for how his tax dollars are spent.

This is not the case with a private purchase of a product. HL has control over how it's own money spent, and have the duty to act within the directive of it's religion, values, or whims. Because they write the checks directly --they the active participant and are accountable for the results. It's HL's money --NOT THE GOVERNMENT's, NOR EMPLOYEE's.

That is the mistake HL's opponents are making. They are claiming right to decide where HL's money is spent. It is a claim of another's property without title.

Bottom line... individuals should have the most possible control over their own spending as possible. We can argue that taxes go against that. But even if so... one wrong does not justify another.

Don't confuse my acknowledgement of Rex's analogy with agreeing with his position. I was intrigued by the possibility of conservatives supporting HL's stand, yet would shout down anyone who made a similar argument as pertaining to "defense" (read: war) spending on the same grounds.

I'm a hardcore libertarian. You'll never see me arguing for more governmental power
