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?

How much are they getting paid though? Minimum wage isn't enough to live on in most places, and birth control costs at least 25 a month in my experience. That could be unaffordable for lots of women.

Quoting tooptimistic:


Hobby Lobby employees still have access to birth control.


Quoting LaughCryLive:

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





Quoting 12hellokitty:

And you find that controlling....



Quoting LaughCryLive:

 They provide insurance for their workers.






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.

A friend's daughter worked for HL.  Her insurance did not cover any type of birth control.  It goes against the owners personal, religious beliefs.  

Of course, they do not inform the employees.

When this employee questioned the reasoning behind this, as she has never encounterd this before, she was told the owners refuse to go against their religious belief's.  Funny thing is, the owners are not the one using the birth control.

Not all employees have Sunday off.  HL was open yesterday.  Some one has to work.  Their website states all stores are closed on Sundays.  Yet the doors were open yesterday.  

I craft a lot, and our Hobby Lobby is never open on Sunday. 

The owners pay for a part of the insurance.  They shouldn't have to pay for something that is against their religion, imo.

Your dd's friend didn't get a book of what was and wasn't covered?   I have always gotten a welcome packet when I get a new insurance plan that explains what is and what isn't covered/ co pays, deductables, etc.   She couldn't go to the doctor for a yearly (which is covered) and during that time get a prescription for BC?  BC isn't that expensive.  She had the option to just pay for it.

Where are you getting they don't cover it in hopes that their employees wont be able to afford it?  I thought you just said they don't provide it because they disagree with it.  I guess not agreeing didn't sound controlling enough...

Quoting LaughCryLive:

It's medication and should be covered. They don't cover it in hopes of that their employees won't be able to afford it...and many can't.

I have never seen birth control pills at Walmart... Are you talking about Plan B? That's just a backup.

So, they should pay for something against thier religious beliefs?  Being able to afford it, and having access is two different things.  I have access to Kobe beef, even though I can't afford it.

BC is now $3 at Walmart.

I am about to leave so I only have second left on CM..

BC  pills  is on the Walmart $3 list.. I don't have time to copy and paste it. 

I just looked it up a few weeks ago for a friend of my oldest.  She has to pay for her BC herself, so I told her to try to get a RX for one on the list. 

I think plan B is really expensive.. I should be on the $3 list though.:)

What if they were Christian Scientist and denying coverage for cancer patients? Would you be OK with that? Sure they cant afford chemo, but they have access to it. Because what we really need is low income families having more babies that they cant afford/want because they dont have effective means to BC.

I always paid for my birth control pills. If you need them you'll buy them. This was the 1960's. People didn't complain as much back then or demand free stuff. I know I didn't complain . It didn't occur to me.

Quoting LaughCryLive:

Basically the same thing.




Quoting 12hellokitty:

Do you mean they wont pay for certain medications?

BC is a personal choice as are abortions.  I don't consider it a life-maintenance drug (i.e. blood pressure, diabetes, blood thinners, heart meds...) that could lead to your death if not taken on the regular basis. Therefore, BC should be paid for out of pocket.  JMO
