43. A worthy effort.

Of course, you can't tell a religious fanatic/hypocrite anything that challenges their delusion -- they'll look at you quizzically like you are speaking in a foreign language.

But it sure seems to me that there is no way out of this Hobby Lobby double standard for the Green family.
Of course, the thing is that Hobby Lobby is open to the general public, hires employees from the general public and, therefore, must obey the laws in this country just like any other business. Carving out an exception for themselves because the owners have a particular religious belief is ultimately unfair and bigoted against others of different beliefs.

Still, the Supreme Court being what is is these days, I wouldn't be surprised that Hobby Lobby gets the ruling it wants --- man, will that open a Pandora's Box.
