Thom Hartmann: Can For-Profit Corporations have a Religion?



Maureen Ferguson, The Catholic Association, joins Thom Hartmann. So is a CEO's religious freedom more important than the religious freedom of his/her employees? When one person forces their beliefs on another - that certainly isn't religious freedomů

1. Sure it can as long as the corporation gives up all its corporate protections

then it would be treated as a sole proprietorship

3. If that religion includes human sacrifice, sure. They'll kill you for an extra nickel of profit.

4. What if my religion says I must use birth control?

So, if I work for these monolithic corporations, I have to violate my religion if I'm poor and have one of their crappy jobs? Sounds allot like when drugstores refused to serve black people at their food counters.

Allowing corporations to discriminate against all women by refusing them comprehensive medical coverage based on their bizarre religious ideas is going to back fire. I don't believe in blood transfusions and I don't want to allow my employees access to blood transfusions. I don't believe in circumcision and I wont allow my employees medical coverage to circumcise their children. I could go on and on.

But you know how these dancing supremes just hate the common man and love their bribes from corporations and RW fundies. So, you know what answer they are going to give.

7. Plan B does not induce an abortion. Never has.

What it does is delay ovulation so that the sperm dies before it can impregnate. Birth control pills do not induce abortions. They 'trick' the body into believing that a pregnancy is in progress, so that the body doesn't ovulate. This whole thing is a misunderstanding of how the body works.

I would also point out that anyone who talks so much about the constitution either doesn't understand the constitution or hasn't read the damn thing.

This is religion at its worst, and this little zealot hasn't a clue, not one, what she's talking about.
