I really can't support a company with such a dishonest name. Who calls themselves Hobby Lobby but doesn't support the hobby of sex?

Maybe they should become a church if they want to have church rules.

Guess I'd better use my $50 Hobby Lobby gift card ASAP before they acquire interest on it.

The headline was basically doing alright until that apostrophe.

It's kind of a silly argument. Health care is part of the compensation package. You might as well argue that you should be able to pay with scrip so you can make sure that employees don't buy rubbers with money the company pays them.

Hey, why not just follow your employees home to make sure they're not farking for fun?

If we had a single payer system were the federal or state governments offered the plans, this wouldn't be an issue.  Companies wouldn't have any direct part in healthcare compensation.  A lot of smaller companies would have preferred such a system so they don't have to be involved in the healthcare cluserfark.

Instead, we have our current mess.  Thanks Congress.

I just spent $40 at Sam Flax instead of Hobby Lobby because of this. Tried to email them a pic of my receipt, but for some reason there doesn't appear o be a link to email them with comments on their website.

This will end well for them. Everyone knows the gays just abhor arts & crafts. No way this could possibly hurt their business more than covering birth control.

Hey, don't put that past the Green family. They are, how shall we say, true holy rollers. Of course they live like billionaires, not humble servants of god (that would be their many minimum wage slaves), but you gotta draw the line somewhere, right?

I can't respect a company that is based in the leisure industry, yet is closed on a day when most people have leisure.

That 40 bucks is going to push them right over the edge.

Boycotting them is kind of counter productive. If enough people did that (they won't), it would have more of a negative impact on the employees, then it would the company. Sales are down, you lay off people.

Religious belief does not make you exempt from law that affects everyone.* You do not get to deny health benefits, hide your face for a driver's licence photo, beat your children for having a boyfriend, or smoke weed.

I'd think gays would be ambivalent about birth control since they really don't need it to prevent pregnancy.
 
2012-12-28 04:14:05 PM
I don't like Hobby Lobby because the name is deceptive. I see "hobby lobby" and I think that it would be a pretty good place for a model kit builder and wargamer, but it is not. Too much arts and crafts, and perhaps useful for building scenery/gaming tables, but that's it.
 
2012-12-28 04:14:12 PM
I can't wait to see the first lawsuit from some female Hobby Lobby employee who gets knocked up on 1 January, 2013.

There is an easy solution that they'll probably take.

Just stop providing health insurance.

That'll make everyone happy , right?
 
2012-12-28 04:15:25 PM
On an unrelated note.

Owner with 6 employees figured up the math on providing insurance for the first time to his employees.

It'll be cheaper for him to take a 350 dollar hit per employee including himself and wife. Which wouldn't be an issue except she's never worked there. But the state government told him she always has. Meanwhile the employees will go forth and get Obama care.

Convenience abortions should be prosecuted as first degree murder.

Go ahead idiot liberals - open up this can of worms of pushing your beliefs on others through Obamacare and see what kind of a country we end up with. Because it won't take long for the ball to be in the other court, and I have a feeling the next republican president will make G W Bush look like Mahatma Gandhi, and then you dumbasses will really have something to cry about.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Boycotting them is kind of counter productive.


So if you disagree with their policy, you should shop there even more? Well, that's a tacit that I had not thought of. "Hey, Green Family, I don't agree with your policies, here's more money for you."

ThrobblefootSpectre: Religious belief does not make you exempt from law that affects everyone.* You do not get to deny health benefits


Actually, you do if you're a church. Hobby Lobby is a business, so they can cry all they want about their beliefs; the law quite clearly applies to them.

That's assuming you've quit your hobby instead of taking your business elsewhere. Why would you quit your hobby?

You're absolutely right.  Continuing to shop there is the best possible way to send a message that their attempts to interfere with the private lives of their employees will not be tolerated.

Do you see that? Its a modern reflector on an Amish buggy. The Amish did not want to put modern reflectors on their buggies, but the law says they have to.

Just pandering to those narrow-minded imbeciles that want to score some brownie points for heaven for their imaginary but insecure sky-wizard.  OH MY, GAWD doesn't like ABORTION or BIRTH CONTROL!  It sez right there in the BAHBULL!!!  Praise the LAWD!!!

Oh, and they just feel the rush of POWER they get for doing this. Doesn't matter how many lives of women they ruin with their little 'hobby' here.

Selfish, goddamn assholes. With money. Lots of goddamn money. Money that goddamn politicians just farkin' LOVE.

Or maybe they should be a private company, one of those places where you can choose on your own whether or not to shop there or work there.

We get to smoke weed in Colorado now.

And we don't even need religion to do it ;P
 
2012-12-28 04:18:48 PM
Your beliefs are not necessarily those of your employees. You don't get to claim religious prerogative when what you're being required to do has no effect on you personally and does not infringe upon your beliefs as they pertain to you. STFU and choke it down.

Same kind of stuff that make non-fundies also pieces of shiat; nosing into other peoples business.

ok, here goes..

if you don't like it, then find another job...it's not mandatory that you believe what they do nor is it mandatory that you are employed there...
 
2012-12-28 04:20:26 PM
I'm quite enjoying the Hobby Lobby ads on this page as I read it.

Too bad "Owner" doesn't work hard enough to afford what is legally required. Some job creator "Owner" is... he must not be very smart.
