The founder of Domino’s Pizza is suing the federal government over mandatory contraception coverage in the health care law.
Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception isn’t health care but a “gravely immoral” practice.
He filed a lawsuit Friday in federal court. It also lists as a plaintiff Domino’s Farms, a Michigan office park complex that Monaghan owns.
Monaghan offers health insurance that excludes contraception and abortion for employees. The new federal law requires employers to offer insurance including contraception coverage or risk fines.
Monaghan says the law violates his rights, and is asking a judge to strike down the mandate. There are similar lawsuits pending nationwide.
Yes, his rights to operate outside of the law are being violated. You see, if his religious beliefs prohibit him from providing full insurance, like every other company must do, then he shouldn’t have to do it. Just like if a business owner believed in slavery because of the bible, then they should get an exemption from minimum wage laws.
Not like I’ll miss Domino’s; their pizza sucked the scabs off a zombie’s ass anyway.
Since consumers who don’t want to financially support bad people are out of luck with Papa John’s and Domino’s now, is there a good alternative? I’ve heard Little Caesar’s does alright by their employees but could find no confirmation of that. Hardee’s and Starbucks both rock, as does Ruby Tuesdays. Does anybody else know any company’s that rock?
