Boycott Hobby Lobby

Sponsored by the Secular Coalition for Massachusetts!

The recent decision from the Supreme Court that grants corporations the right to freedom of religion over the rights of human beings, especially women to exercise their own, is egregious.

Hobby Lobby may have won in court but that doesn't mean this is over. No one who thinks women are more important than the fictional rights of corporations should ever shop at Hobby Lobby ever again.

Let this corporation and the world know, we are not going to let this go.

Bring signs, bring sunblock and wear hats. We want this to be a positive event, filled with freedom and the hope for a better future. There will be a chance for some short speeches if anyone is interested, and we will be inviting the media to this event.

We will be meeting on the grassy area nearest Hobby Lobby.

Please share this event far and wide.

    I'm not sure the purpose of this. The five people with stock in Hobby Lobby merely wished not to be forced to buy abortfacants for other people if they didn't wish to. Seems to me that once you try to get someone else to pay for your stuff they should have some say. The correct solution is to eliminate all tax deductions for employer provide health plans, and other tax avoidance schemes that were created during WWII. These schemes were originally put in place to avoid FDR's economically destructive wage controls. Thankfully, That stupidity no longer exists. While were at it lets remove the entire category of non-profit, and tax all entities including churches to pay for the services they recieve from the government.

      BTW, the health care coverage provided by companies for their employees is not merely an insurance program. It is a first dollar payment with deductible grafted to an insurance program as a means of tax evasion. So the similarities to my half price food program are much greater than you think. The food program is like a first dollar payment system with a %50 deductible. It to o is for tax evasion because part of my compensation is shifted away from the application of payroll and income tax. McDonald's could graft an food insurance program onto that and it would be completely analogous. Such a program could provide insurance in the case of famine when food prices skyrocket and the average McDs employee would not be able to afford food. All the is moot to the point I was making that there is no intrusion into the personal life of the employee, nor any violation of rights.

      Also your claim that there is some right which excludes your employer from getting involved in your private life is nonsense. For example, Axelle Despiegelaere hunts big game in her private life, yet L’Oreal just fired her for doing so. Also the term "human right" has many different meanings. In some meanings it refers only to inalienable rights, and in other it is a arbitrary reference to whatever the speaker wishes to have the government grant individuals regardless of whether it is inalienable or contradictory with other rights. Making your employer pay for some benefit is in no way an inalienable right.

    Glad to see far more positive responses than negative ones. Great conversations with intelligent, reasonable Humanists from three states!
