The fight over healthcare, religion and birth control
(KTVI) – In Tuesday’s Jacology, Charles Jaco looks at corporate religion.
Can a corporation have a religion? Every corporation I’ve ever worked for has worshipped money, so they have that in common. But the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing a case that takes up that issue among others. The case involves the hobby lobby chain and its owners, the Green family. The Greens, based in Oklahoma City are evangelical Christians. They claim that being forced to carry an employee health plan that covers the morning-after birth control pill violates their religious beliefs. They say it amounts to abortion. But do they get to impose their religion on their workers?
