Except the law required them provide benefits, so they couldn't just not provide benefits. They had also offered birth control coverage right up until the black guy told them they had to, then all of a sudden they found their "religion." Hobby Lobby was a terrible decision and started the slippery slope to where we are today where the USSC might demand that state provide EQUAL funding to private cult schools as they provide to public schools. But of course, those schools will roll out the Hobby lobby defense as soon as any standards are imposed on them.Fucking REALLY? You're equating this to Hobby Lobby ?
One side of this (this with Private schools) is GOVERNMENT Public tax-payer funding of a religious institution. That means paying for their indoctrinating stupid beliefs, and paying for religious crap. There is no reason for this.
On the other side (Hobby Lobby) is a corporation run by some religious people who simply do not want to pay CERTAIN benefits to anyone that works for them. They could simply not offer benefits at all and we wouldn't have had any problems and no complaints from incompetent fools.
I mean hell - just based on laws and legalities - one is based on freedom of speech, the other one is related to government funding. These literally have nothing to do with each other.
