  • Religion should be left out of business, ideally.

  • A corporation is not a human in regard to a human's rights. It is a fictional entity that is only regarded as a human for the purposes of creating contracts. A corporation is composed of many different people, often of many different belief system, and as it is not itself a human, it cannot have one religious identity.

  • Your beliefs should never put you above the law.

  • Corporations are not people; they do not have freedom of religion nor freedom of speech. A CEO does not have the right to force his or her religion onto the entire staff.

No employer should have any say in the medical decisions of their employees.

Business should be allowed to do whatever they want. No regulation. They dont need to provide healthcare either. Businesses in the golden days just payed their workers whatever they thought their output was worth. We should return back to those days

So... If I wanted to start a business cooking aborted fetuses, that's fine, because businesses don't need any regulation?

"Businesses in the golden days just payed their workers whatever they thought their output was worth. " And it created the great depression.

Ummmm, sounds greats!

No it didnt. What created the great depression is too many people buying on credit and margin and never paying back what they owed in time.

They couldn't pay back what they owed, because employers refused to pay them what they were worth. Because the same monied interests who own the means of production, also own the debt of the individuals they employed. It behooves a business to exploit the workers. This doesn't make it legal or morally correct.
