Does a company's religious background/affiliation affect you?

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you base your decisions to shop or eat somewhere based on the company's religious background or views?

Sure, we remember the Chick-Fil-A "scandal" over the COO's comments about gay marriage, but do you know other companies' religous affiliations? Do you care?

Quoting 12hellokitty:


I didn't know they sold medication?  I thought HL was a crafts store...

Quoting LaughCryLive:

 I dislike that they try and control women by denying them medications.


Quoting tooptimistic:


That's funny.. I shop at Hobby Lobby because they are Christian.  I like their employees get Sundays off.

Quoting LaughCryLive:

I don't shop at Hobby Lobby because of their fanatical religious beliefs.

I wonder?  Do they cover Viagra or vasectomies? 

Quoting tooptimistic:

 

Respectfully disagree..

They don't want to pay for something they are opposed to.  The women can still purchase birth control, so they are not denyed anything.  They can get their rx during their yearly check up which is covered.  They just have to pay for the birth control themselves.  No one is controlling anyone.  It could be said that people who agree with you are trying to control others whose religious beliefs prohibit birth control and abortions.

When I was on BC, my insurance didn't cover it and I had to pay for it.  It wasn't the end of the world.

I don't work for their HR department, so I don't know..

Viagra maybe.. I would bet they are opposed to vasectomies too.

Yes and no.  If their religious beliefs are served up with their product and they use their profits to support political action I do not support I do not shop with them and would not work for such an organization.  I'm not one to seek out the religious affiliations of business owners, if they don't make it public I don't generally care.

I don't care about religious affiliation. Only what they do

Chic fil a was fine until they turned out to be using company profit to support groups that want to force religious morals on everyone else.

And you find that controlling....

 They provide insurance for their workers.

I do find it irritating though when people say a company or group is better because of a particular religious affiliation. Just like wih people "oh she's such a fine christian woman!" Stuff like that

Generally, no. The chick-fil-a thing went way beyond a religious affiliation.

I find it controlling when they won't allow certain medications to be accessed because they disagree with it.
