Of Sincere Pumpkins and HOBBYLOBBY

Standard

SCOTUS has ruled that to be able to deny coverage under the ACA, the privately owned company must hold a “sincere” belief.

If a closely held company, such as HobbyLobby, sells products which are produced in countries that allow, if not support,abortion; can HobbyLobby keep its sincere status?

If a closely held company, such as HobbyLobby, uses providers of any kind who provide insurance which covers birth control are they sincere in their held beliefs?

If a closely held company, such as HobbyLobby, sells its products to businesses who provide insurance to their employees which covers birth control, are they really sincere in their religious beliefs?

If a closely held company, such as HobbyLobby, sells to individuals who have insurance that covers birth control, or uses contraceptives, are they really sincere in their religious beliefs?

If they are selective about whom they discriminate against because of their religious beliefs, are they “sincere” enough to be exempted from the Affordable Care Act.

We know that HobbyLobby, at the least, puchases a lot of their merchandise from China.  The government of China supports birth control and abortion.  Could any company who sincerely is against any form of abortion, in good faith, engage in commerce with China or any other company which allows abortion or contraception?

CHECK OUT THE INVENTORY THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE IN A HOBBYLOBBY.  SEE IF THERE IS ANY MERCHANDISE FROM A COUNTRY WHICH ADVOCATE ABORTION OR CONTRACEPTION.

Are they only “sincere” in their religious beliefs if they inprove their bottom line?  If that is the case, are they hypocrites?
