Can a Corporation impose religion on its employees?

How would you feel if you worked for a company and were denied coverage for birth control because it conflicted with the religious values of its CEO? The SCOTUS will soon make its decision . . .

That is why the single payer option would have been so much better.  Take health care away from businesses.

But in regard to the OP.  Yes, corporations control everything else that happens to us since they now control the gov so making us conform to their religions is just the next step.  Enjoy your corporate masters/Gods.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

At first glance I read this as "single prayer option" and was wondering exactly WTF that had to do with health care.  ;D

I once met a man who claimed to be a genius, then boasted that he was a member of "Mesa".

I think that making sure to have a copy of the bible in each hotel room is a commonplace example of how corporations impose religion to their customers.

Why is that allowed again?  Anybody have any thoughts on that practice?

I'd probably just keep going to my local Health Department and continue to get them for free anyway.

It's been awhile since I've seen a Bible or Watchtower or anything religious in a hotel room. Maybe I'm just staying in all the right places?

I'll stay in a hotel room a few times a year and I'll always check to see if the Bibles are still there.  Anymore I see about 50/50, but maybe it's just where I visit.
Here read a book.  It's free.

The only thought I have is why idiots like you necromance topics? Make a few worthwhile comments (that's 3, you moron) and then post a topic on the subject.

There's an idea.
