30. You cannot reason with these people.

They have foresaken reason, logic and facts eons ago.

I simply will apply a religious test to businesses - those that profess none and take no overt acts of evangelizing will have a chance to earn my business. Those - like the Hobby Lobby - that cannot help themselves or use religion as a bullshit excuse to not participate in the health care system or provide adequate and comprehensive women's health care options will get nothing but negative feedback from me on every forum possible - word of mouth, reviews, chat boards, signatures on forums, BBB, advertising, billboards, graffiti, TV and radio call in shows. I will go out of my way to hurt their business until such time as they stop openly advocating a religious position as terms for doing business with them.

I have a cautionary tale for these Jeebus freaks. About 10 years ago, in the Missouri town I am sentenced to...err, I mean I live in, there opened a "Chirstian" bookstore. BIG sign out front...HUGE lobby and way more square feet than they needed. They put this thing in a strip mall that was situated right next to the entrance to the public library for the county (not by accident I assure you). At first, they seemed to be busy and doing well, but within 16 months the place was gone and the signs and lobbies and inventory liquidated...these X-tian freaks may feel "called by Jeebus" all they want AT HOME, IN CHURCH, IN THEIR CAR, WITH THEIR OWN KIDS...I have nothing to say about it until you first say it to me. After which I will no longer darken the doorstep of your establishment!
