Hobby Lobby Hypocrisy

Source: www.hobbylobby.com
According to CNN, Hobby Lobby 401k plans allow investments in the very contraceptive devices that they brought suit about: IUDs, morning-after pill, etc. When companies want exemptions from the law based on their owners religious beliefs, shouldn't the pertinent religious beliefs be sincerely held? 401k plans and health care plans are quite similar in that the employee chooses the procedure or the investment and the employer makes a partial payment towards that purchase. So, in what ethical system is it wrong to support the purchasing of IUDs but OK to support the manufacture of IUDs?

Suffer the Little Children

Protesters in Murrieta, CA shamefully blocked a busload of refugee children, forcing them to turn around. Perhaps the good Christian people of Murrieta need to be reminded of some Bible verses:
Leviticus 19:34 The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. 
Hebrews 13: 1 Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.
