I just read in the Huffington Post a report from "Mother Jones" today about retirement investments that Hobby Lobby has for their employees 401 K. They have mutal funds that are invested in multiple pharmaceutical companies that produce emergency contraceptives, the abortion pills and IUD's. Also they have two health insurance companies that cover abortions, emergency contraceptions and abortion pills. I thought this was a brillant find on Mother Jones, and it should be talked about and shared. Thank you, Helen

If the Mother Jones article turns out to be an April Fools article - it's a very convincing one.

But because it cleaves so nicely with the insincerity and whoreosity of the Greens / Hobble LawBe I'm thinking it's probably legit.

So far as I know, there is no rule anymore (thanks, Ronny) against a company that lies about its morals to the general public in its advertising. And history has shown that dishonesty at the top has a way of ending up on the company's books & tax returns.

But there are rules against litigants knowingly making false statements in court (perjury) and sanctions/disbarment for Attorneys that knowingly support it - at the lowest court level, let alone before the Supreme Court.

The dishonest attorneys should be disbarred (for perpetrating the hoax or being incompetent in their due diligence before filing the case) and the Company should have to pay all of the court costs and opposing counsel wages for all of the levels plus a hefty penalty for wasting everyone's time.

If it puts them into receivership, fine. So far as I know there is nothing they sell that cannot be purchased elsewhere and noone that works there that can't work for the competition (where they would probably be better off anyway).

I suppose we can expect that they will argue that "sincerely held belief" was used as a slogan and not intended to be taken literally (like Focks Noose when they put "news" in the title of any of their "entertainment" shows).

It is way beyond hypocrisy for a self-identified Christian to attempt to Weaponize Christianity. For the love of Jesus!...literally.
