Hi, Gordon, et al, I'm looking forward to discussing Hobby Lobby with you this week. It isn't too often that a case involving my two primary interests, corporate law and law and religion intersect, so it should be fun. The big question of corporate conscience I find fascinating. We urge corporations to be socially responsible and to be good corporate citizens, and we praise Coca Cola for its interest in arctic wildlife, but somehow Hobby Lobby is told they aren't behaving like a corporation should when they express a conscientious interest in protecting human life. I may or may not agree with their views about when human life begins, but it seems odd that they are treated as not behaving as a business should when the conscientious views of their owners are injected into the corporation's life.
