  •  I work for a Fortune 500 company. Who is (10+ / 0-)

    "my employer" for purposes of this proposal?  Who gets to decide what benefits I get?

    The CEO?
    The Board?
    The shareholders?
    The VP of HR?
    My immediate supervisor?
    A "focus group" of interested employees?
    The insurance company that provides our health care coverage?  (Which one - there are many.)

    Exactly what are corporate "religious beliefs or moral convictions"?

    Sort of points out just how ridiculous it is to say that "corporations are people".

      your job is subject to a union contract. In which case benefits must be negotiated -- maybe.

      •  Really? For 140,000 employees and (0+ / 0-)

        1,600 mutual funds and institutions representing many thousands of investors?

        I'd be very surprised if our CEO expects to set the beliefs and morals for all of us!

    •  Corporations worship Mammon (0+ / 0-)

      with great enthusiasm and single-minded devotion. Body, mind, soul, and spirit.
