If Hobby Lobby was a Muslim-run business imposing Sharia law...

In a post on the website for his new play, Allegiance, the openly gay, former Star Trek actor George Takei commented on last week's Hobby Lobby decision by the United States Supreme Court.
The decision allows the craft store to opt out of the contraceptive mandate of the Affordable Care Act.
Takei wrote, "(O)ne wonders whether the case would have come out differently if a Muslim-run chain business attempted to impose Sharia law."
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s wrote a 35-page dissent to the decision. Takei pointed out that Hobby Lobby has invested in multiple companies that manufacture abortion drugs and birth control and that the company receives most of its merchandise from China. Overpopulation in China has led to mandatory abortions and sterilizations for women who try to have more than one child.
