Who started this mess?

Salon puts the pressure of unintended consequences on Hobby Lobby in its fight for a religious exemption from the contraceptive mandate.
But Hobby Lobby didn't write the law.
Or lobby for it.
Or pass it.
They are trying to deal with it.
Although I love the "you didn't build this yourself" angle of this paragraph.
Entrepreneurs, like the owners of Hobby Lobby, are provided innumerable privileges by the public that allow their businesses to thrive, and the price of those privileges is that they have to adhere to public laws and regulations.
You might have worked in the garage to start this business, but it's our world. You need to follow along.
Except for Hobby Lobby, it's God's world and we need to follow that.
