In Response to: A Legal Quagmire

In her letter to PAW (Inbox, July 8), Emily Klein suggests that the Hobby Lobby case “allows bosses to impose their religious beliefs on their employees.” Ms. Klein is seriously mistaken. The case has nothing to do with the birth-control choices made by employees of Hobby Lobby. The owners of Hobby Lobby have not prevented any employee from using whatever form of birth control the employee chooses. What the owners have done is seek (and gain) legal agreement that the owners should not be forced to pay for forms of birth control that violate their religious beliefs. That sounds like religious freedom to me. No beliefs are being imposed on anyone.
