Now, since most here are of the idea that a business can't discriminate against religion, race, creed or sexuality, I am sure that this will be accepted by all.
Sorry but the Hobby Lobby ruling let's business's discriminate against women by allowing them to pick and choose what kind of birth control their female employees can use.

Someone works in a drug store and has a strong personal belief about birth control.
A customer comes in to buy birth control; does the employee tell the customer that the store won't sell birth control, or do they go get someone to sell it that doesn't have a moral restriction.
The latter is the obvious legal answer.
That's a more realistic way to deal with "strong personal convictions."

This is the most ridiculous bit of commie bull# I've ever heard.
Who's focused on hate?
I have stood on the side to defend religious freedoms even though that has been difficult with all the varied definitions and word games that so many have played.
On a personal level, I don't appreciate what they are doing, something you neglect (in your hateful tirade) to even mention, but I defend those even though I don't agree because it is the right thing to do.
You and the others have spent dozens of pages mocking christianity, religion, conservatives and playing word-garbage with definitions of "business".
You jump on the side of "it's okay now" when the tax code changes, but most of you would still be rattling on if that hadn't have happened.
Many of you have shown that you would support anything that took away freedom. Your irrational hatred for personal freedoms, religious freedoms and personal responsibilities have become quite apparent.
I find it sad that in all the time on ATS, you and others like you, will only stand up for those within your narrow ideology and rarely for what it right, regardless of your personal or ideological standing.

We were forced to say this every morning in school
when I was a kid:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of The United States of
America and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.
Yes, but what point are you making by recalling that?
