Yeah, selling food to people means you are supporting gluttony. Nice logic there, subby.

A little bit ironic, given the man tried to prevent all contraception from being sold in the town he's building in Florida.

Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception isn't health care but a "gravely immoral" practice.

that's good for you, but employers don't get to force THEIR religious beliefs on their employes. you have to give your workers that option, even if it goes against your own personal beliefs. to do anything differently effectively imposes YOUR beliefs on your workers...and the courts aren't going to allow that.

Ok so never eating Dominoes again.

This isn't even something that's an opinion. It's a fact that the pill is health care. Even if you ignore all the non-contraceptive uses, "getting pregnant" is a major health issue for women.

Asshat.

All that plus the fact it's about 30 miles inland where the closest city is Naples.

Who the hell would want to live there?

It's just not fair that the government is forcing certain beliefs on me....I should be able to force my religious beliefs on my employees, but that's where it stops!
 
2012-12-16 11:42:10 AM
I'd quit buying Domino's over this but I quit buying Domino's when they sold me two bags of potato chips and they were both expired on their pull-dates.

I've spent probably 4 figures on delivered food since then. I hope Domino's on Thomas and 52nd street in Phoenix enjoys all that money they made on pawning off 2 spoiled bags of chips. It was the last dime I will ever give Domino's.

/Let's see. Selling a bag of spoiled tater chips. Is that one Hail Mary or two Hail Marys?

Yeah, selling contraception to people means you are supporting lust. More the 90% of Catholics already buy contraceptives. Nice logic there.

Hobby Lobby had a similar issue and the case was dismissed I believe. Like Hobby Lobby, Domino's is a secular corporation, not a religious institution. They must provide all contraceptives to their employees.
 
2012-12-16 11:45:31 AM
We just need a Jehovah's Witness to sue claiming that covering their employee's blood transfusions is immoral.

Are Christian Scientists exempt from the ACA? This could be a great social experiment- if the ACA is truly that bad, will most people convert to Christian Scientists?

So pregnant women eat a lot of pizza.

And domino's gets a deal on afterbirth for topping filler.

Disagree. Catholic beliefs are worth 2.5 times his scumbag employees' rights.

Isn't this the guy that built his own town in Florida or something that's like 100% religious retreat? Can't he be happy being a cult leader there?

Imposing your religious beliefs on your employees at the expense of their health is dirty pool...

Meh, I started boycotting Domino's years ago when they changed from their mediocre but still tolerable old recipe pizza to their "new and improved" (but actually even shiattier) recipe.

If it ain't broke (or at least not as broken) then stop trying to fix it.

FailOut08: Isn't this the guy that built his own town in Florida or something that's like 100% religious retreat? Can't he be happy being a cult leader there?


Yep, he doesn't even run Domino's anymore. He turned his attention to building that Catholic town in the middle of the Florida Everglades.

Like Chick-Fil-A and Papa John's before, I'd boycott Domino's but their food is complete garbage that only a small child would enjoy anyway so I already don't eat it... sigh... I want to be part of this backlash against crazy far-right religious radicals in the fast food industry but nothing I use ever turns out to be run by them (that I'm yet aware of, anyway).

These CEO business geniuses that are compensated so well because they have expertise and knowledge about running business that couldn't be performed by a typical worker don't seem to understand alienating roughly 50% of the general population might not be the best financial decision.

I was going to make a snarky comment about "he's not that devout, he doesn't have any page boys..." but I can see that that scandal will be breaking soon enough.

To be fair to Target, they didn't. Unless I'm unaware of why you're putting them on that list. They wound up associated with far-right homophobic nutters because they supported those candidates based on their business positions, not their social positions.

Target itself has been pretty LGBT-friendly in its policies as I recall.

Recovering catholic (8 years without attending a service.) and that was never taught. Typically at the catholic grade school I went to they would extoll their much better education, and would occasionally say everyone who isnt catholic is going to hell, it was the sermons and especially sunday school that tried to cram intolerance down my throat. If I were attractive and good at singing I would do whatever I could to rail against the catholic church in my songs. And I would tell them yes, you have a war against homosexuals so I have a war against you.

Instead I complain about them on fark.

Granny_Panties: Menards


Yeah, we just experienced their right wing derp here in MO when they announced that they were going to shelve plans to build a store near here because of Obama.

Link

"We are on schedule to open our new stores in O'Fallon, IL and St. Peters, MO this Spring, 2013. For O'Fallon, MO, I'm very sorry, but we are a family owned business and with the Obama Administration scaring the dickens out of all small businesses in the USA at present, we have decided not to risk expansion until things are more settled. Thank you for your patience and understanding."

Never mind that St. Peters is only 5 miles from O'Fallon, MO where they're still planning on building a store.

Apparently they can take enough risk to build one store out here but not another one 5 miles away.

Stupid...just stupid.
