Twisted World of Democratic Opposition to Hobby Lobby

It has been interesting reading the rantings of Democrats in reaction to the ruling about Hobby Lobby this week.

What I find the funniest about it all is that they passed the bill that allowed for it to happen.  The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 introduced by Chuck Schumer (D - NY), passed Senate with a 97-3 vote, passed the house unanimously and signed into law by Bill Clinton.

Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 - Prohibits any agency, department, or official of the United States or any State (the government) from substantially burdening a person's exercise of religion even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability, except that the government may burden a person's exercise of religion only if it demonstrates that application of the burden to the person:
(1) furthers a compelling governmental interest; and
(2) is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.
Sets forth provisions pertaining to judicial relief, attorney's fees, and applicability.
Declares that:
(1) nothing in this Act shall be construed to interpret the clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution prohibiting the establishment of religion;
(2) the granting of government funding, benefits, or exemptions, to the extent permissible under that clause, shall not constitute a violation of this Act; and
(3) as used in this Act, "granting" does not include the denial of government funding, benefits, or exemptions.
This bill came into being because of the ruling on the case Employment Division v. Smith (1990) in which two Native Americans took peyote as a religious ceremony.  Since they were working as drug rehab counselors they were both fired from their jobs.
Justice Scalia warned in the ruling that exemptions for religious reasoning “would open the prospect of constitutionally required exemptions from civic obligations of almost every conceivable kind.”
Of course now that their law is being implemented the Democrats are crying foul and claiming it's about greed and money.  They ignore that Hobby Lobby pays full time starting wages of $15 an hour and part time of $9.50 an hour.
My favorite slam is that they are now also claiming Hobby Lobby finances the same birth control they oppose because employees choose to invest their employer matched 401k in such a way as to include those stocks.
Or even better, attaching Hobby Lobby because it purchases goods from China where abortions are mandates.  Do Democrats not remember their own chants about when they support the troops even though they opposed the wars under Bush?  Same thing here.  Just because Hobby Lobby supports Chinese business and the people in China doesn't mean they support it's government.  Equating that to a direct choice of what they ensure their employees for is not the same thing.
