I’ve said this before when Chick-fil-a went all anti-gay rights and I’ll say it again now for Hobby Lobby.
Companies are not people. They are corporations that employ people. It is up to those people to decide what violates their own personal religious or political beliefs. It is NOT the companies right to decide for them.
As a marketer, I understand how important it is for companies to act “human” and to stand for and uphold values that set them apart from other companies.
As a Southerner, I understand conservatism. And as a christian, I understand pro-life.
But as an American, I believe in the separation of church and state, our constitutional right to freedom of choice, and our democratic right to vote.
Hobby Lobby is not a person. Hobby Lobby has no right to decide for others what beliefs they should or should not uphold especially when it effects someone else’s health and well being.

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
Finally someone tries to help us and the sharks! Awesome invention: Shark Deterrent Wet Suit for divers and surfers
