    Mr.  Green states its HIS personal religious belief that certain contraceptives be banned...problem is he IS NOT the corporation. A corporation is a separate legal entity. He is a shareholder of a company that is incorporated in the state of ? If his company was a sole proprietorship...perhaps that would be a different story. His store is not a church or a not for profit charitable organization Its a for profit corporation - and a very successful one at that.

      I'm not sure.  They sell craft supplies - what if they sold only Christian books and records, and tithed 50% of their profits?

      Churches and charities are also legal entities (usually corporations, if non-profits).  I want to say that a legal entity is inanimate and in the most literal sense of that word, has no spirituality.  But that wouldn't give churches a right of free exercise at all.
