Everyone Who Predicted Some Douchebag CEO’s Would Try To Claim Religious Exemptions to Cut their Healthcare Costs Was Right

Hobby Lobby Obamacare Lawsuit: Judge Rules Store Must Cover Morning After Pill – The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/2012/11/20/hobby-lobby-obamacare-lawsuit_n_2164237.html

OKLAHOMA CITY — A federal judge Monday rejected Hobby Lobby Stores Inc.’s request to block part of the federal health care overhaul that requires the arts and craft supply company to provide insurance coverage for the morning-after and week-after birth control pills. In a 28-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton denied a request by Hobby Lobby to prevent the government from enforcing portions of the health care law mandating insurance coverage for contraceptives the company’s Christian owners consider objectionable. The Oklahoma City-based company and a sister company, Mardel Inc., sued the government in September, claiming the mandate violates the owners’ religious beliefs. The owners contend the morning-after and week-after birth control pills are tantamount to abortion because they can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in a woman’s womb. They also object to providing coverage for certain kinds of intrauterine devices.

I do believe these folks endorse the notion of “public shaming for immoral acts”, so we’ll use their own social power theories against them.
