Are successful men being persecuted for their exercise of Freedom of Religion? Zach Heltzel explores some of the unsettling recent events involving the Left’s War On Men.
Thanks to the decision of the Supreme Court in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, we know that companies should be allowed to do whatever they want, regardless of any laws to the contrary, if their religion tells them that they should. This is a wonderful conservative victory.
Yet at the same time, women have been using the courts and legal system to do terrible things to successful capitalist men. Dov Charney was fired from American Apparel just because he forced a woman to give him oral sex. Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen was fired just because he called a female executive at Tinder a whore. What about their freedom of religion?
Zach Heltzel explains:
It’s time for the Supreme Court to step in again, in defense of religious freedom, liberty, and capitalism. We can’t have some kind of incoherent legal system where it’s OK to limit women’s access to contraception, but it’s not ok to call them whores.
That just doesn’t make any sense!

Recently, President Barack HUSSEIN Obama announced that his government takeover of America’s healthcare system, the Affordable Care Act, allegedly reached its goal of enrolling over 7 million Americans. The Democrat party is touting this biased statistic as a sign that the law, which takes away your ability to make your own healthcare decisions while enabling women to get abortions in the aisles of dissenting Hobby Lobby stores.
While real conservatives like Paul Ryan and Bobby Jindal have proposed plans, their plans have all been criticized for containing elements that are either not conservative, or are unpopular, or both. I have been able to come up with a complete alternative to Obamacare that is both based on conservative principles and known to poll well with the American people!
My proposal, TheOperations, Bandages, Acupuncture, Mammography and Sometimes Ultrasound X-Rays Act, or The OBAMASUX Act for short, is a comprehensive plan that fixes problems with the healthcare system in place before the so-called President had to mess everything up with the ACA’s sweeping shift to a government run system. It is backed up with research and findings from leading respected conservative institutions such as The Heritage Foundation and The Weekly Standard.
It is in absolutely no way similar to the Affordable Care Act, which does absolutely none of the things I am about to mention.
OBAMASUX works by providing health insurance to those who cannot afford it by giving them subsidies, which basically means lowering taxes to give people healthcare.
OBAMASUX does not regulate your health care decisions, but rather health insurance companies, which would continue to remain private businesses but also encouraged by law to support the public good.
Yearly check-ups, immunizations, and routine screenings for diseases will have no out-of-pocket cost, as they have been proven to decrease healthcare costs long-term.
Those with insurance through their employer will not have to change plans, as long as they meet minimum coverage standards and their insurance company does not discontinue that plan structure, as they have always done.
Rather than gutting Medicare or Medicaid, OBAMASUX expands these popular programs, allowing more elderly and lower-income families to receive medical services.
Businesses with over 100 full-time employees will be strongly encouraged to provide health insurance to those employees.
Young people under the age of 26 will be able to stay on their parents’ insurance plans.
All of these elements would take the world’s greatest healthcare system and carry it into a bright, prosperous future. Barack Hussein Obama knows this, and with the help of conservative patriots like you, we can force him to repeal Obamacare and enact these reforms.
Hobby Lobby says they are Christian. They say they love God. They claim that the reason they don’t want to pay for employee health insurance is that some of that money might end up paying for someone’s abortion, and they hate abortion. This is their argument:
1) If we pay for health insurance for our employees, that money goes into a pool of money that the health insurance company has to pay for things.
2) If that health insurance company covers abortions, then they might take some money out of that pool and give it to a hospital that performed an abortion.
3) Therefore, if we pay for health insurance for our employees it is the same as if we were paying for abortions.
As a result, they object, because they don’t wantto pay for abortions.
This style of argument is common. This is the same logic that we use to deny public funding to Planned Parenthood, even though only a teeny tiny fraction of what Planned Parenthood does has anything to do with abortion. The logic is like this:
1) If public money goes to Planned Parenthood, then it goes into a big bucket with all of their other money.
2) Some part of the money in that bucket might get used to pay a doctor who performs an abortion.
3) Therefore, if any public money at all goes to Planned Parenthood in any way, then it is the same as if we are paying for abortions.
As a result, we object to public money going to Planned Parenthood, because we don’t want to pay for abortions. As you can see, the logic is impeccable.
Unfortunately, THERE IS A PROBLEM!!!!
Hobby Lobby buys some of its materials from Chinese companies! Now, everybody knows that Chinese companies pay money to the Chinese government in taxes, and the Chinese government forces women in China to have abortions.
Notice, this follows exactly the same logic:
1) If Hobby Lobby pays companies in China for their products, then that money goes into a big pool of money owned by the Chinese company.
2) If that Chinese company pays taxes, then some of their tax money will go toward GOVERNMENT-FORCED ABORTIONS IN CHINA.
3) Therefore, when Hobby Lobby buys products from China it is exactly as if Hobby Lobby is FORCING CHINESE PEOPLE TO GET ABORTIONS.
Clearly, as you can see, the logic is the same.
So, Hobby Lobby, I ask you this:
Why do you hate babies?
Why do you hate God?
Don’t you realize that the only way to be Godly–using the logic that you are using to deny employees health insurance–is to make everything yourself and not interact with the world economy at all?
Honestly, Hobby Lobby. I thought you were better than this.
