    And by stopping their coverage of prescription birth control they’re also increasing the number of spontaneousl abortions needlessly. So they’re causing more deaths in THIS country too.

    I am confused by this.

    Would a a vegetarian/vegan also be a hypocrite if they buy goods and services from a person that eats meat?

    Being an atheist I subsidise Christians and their infantile superstitions because of the tax exempt status of religious institutions, if they weren’t so narcissistic they would think through the implications of implicit boycotts.

    No. Here’s a better parallel: a state passes a law requiring all schools to provide nourishing lunches for children under 10. A vegan who owns a chain of private schools demands an exemption from this requirement for vegans while also selling leather goods and beef jerky at fundraisers for the schools. Would that vegan be a hypocrite? Yes.

    I am still confused… I understand the point re: vegan selling leather, but the graphic does not convey this message. Does this mean Hobby Lobby cannot buy from any country where abortion is provided by the state? If Hobby Lobby exempted themselves from providing/buying abortion related drugs but funded the Chinese warehouse that produces those drugs, then I could see some serious hypocrisy. To me, the graphic is no good.

    It’s a self referential phrase: “christian values __________”. There’s nothing there, because that’s what they value: nothing. It’s all short term gainsaying.

    Hobby lobby also invests in pharmaceutical companies that make contraceptives.. So why don’t their religious ideals prevent them from investing in those companies?
