Letter: Don’t let Hobby Lobby promote discrimination

Don’t let Hobby Lobby promote discrimination

In this country, we are free to worship whomever we wish or not at all. Religious extremists, however, are all about discriminating against anyone who believes differently.

Hobby Lobby is no mom-and-pop operation. It is a corporation with 18,000 employees and hundreds of locations in 48 states. It is run by a billionaire who donates tons of money to support extreme positions that discriminate against those with different beliefs than his own. Now it’s playing the “religious card” to try to legitimize its discrimination.

Corporations can never be people – no matter what the Supreme Court says – and they should not be allowed to impose their will on the rest of us. When corporations and money get the loudest voice in our society, that’s oligarchy, not democracy.
