Religious be assholes

It's now been 'legally' determined that companies can deny certain Healthcare benefits based on the 'religious' beliefs of those in charge thanks to Hobby Lobby. And it's bs.

I'm going to put aside the fact that I don't believe companies should be forced to provide health insurance to begin with in what is supposed to be a country full of freedom and liberty. This isn't a free country with liberties, and they do coerce companies to follow their unjust laws. Companies being forced to provide health insurance should be the issue, not the issue of what parts of it are enforced.

If companies are forced to provide the service, it shouldn't also allow companies to impose their religious beliefs on others. And this one step will further that ability as companies demand more 'religious freedom' to deny more people things, such as what I've recently read how they want to be exempt from having to hire LGBT because of religion. At what point are they exempt from providing the insurance because they don't believe in it? I've heard of a religious person not go to the hospital and instead pray about their wound or illness. And I'm sure that would have been in the news... 'Man dies praying for healing from flesh wound rather than seeking medical assistance'.

To save money, it wouldn't be long before almost every company started denying whatever they could for 'religious beliefs' if it cut costs. What's worse is that these companies make so much money that it doesn't even make sense. It's not as if they can't afford it. These people are simply assholes. Self-centered, sociopathic assholes.
