In terms of money, I think that Hobby Lobby’s “victory” in the Supreme Court today was Pyrrhic, and that the lawyers who advised the family who owns most of the shares *must* have advised them of this. The company will lose a number of highly trained employees as well as a large number of long-term customers. That is money going out the door.

The company might save a little money in insurance costs.

The family loses. It must have known. This family *believes* in the cause.
