    Just got back from church

    Hey everyone,

    I used to go to church on Sunday mornings, but for whatever reason I find myself going on Saturday nights more often. Anyway, I thought it was strange, I didn't see any Hobby Lobby buildings inside the service. Maybe the Hobby Lobby buildings are more of a "Sunday" bunch, bit U figured I'd see at least one or two. I guess the only thing to do now is to go to church again tomorrow and see if they show up.

    Maybe I am dense or your post was a bit too obtuse. I didn't get the point of the obvious sarcasm. Could you be a little clearer for us slow-witted types?

    Still trying to figure out how a set of buildings can practice religion. Again, maybe I'll see the buildings at church tomorrow and they can explain it to me

    The Supreme Court, in the late 1800s, ruled that corporations have personhood meaning they have many of the same rights natural persons.

    Interesting. I would have thought by now, I would see a corporation in line at the bank or DMV, or maybe shopping at a store. I guess I'll have to keep looking

    Ah, now I understand what you were trying to get across.

    How did you come to the conclusion that a corporation is the buildings it occupies? What if it has many buildings? Is it many different entities?

    LogDog is correct btw, corporations are legal entities much in the same way people are.

    Going with your train of thought, maybe corporations shouldnt pay taxes either.

    edit: for tomtoms observation that coroporations are not in line at the dmv ect....
    The state tends to expand in proportion to its means of existence and to live beyond its means, and these are, in the last analysis, nothing but the substance of the people. Woe to the people that cannot limit the sphere of action of the state! Freedom, private enterprise, wealth, happiness, independence, personal dignity, all vanish. - Frederic Bastiat

    I find it funny how people can actually claim they are being denied birth control just because their bosses arent obligated to purchase it for them. Especially when it costs as little as $3.99 a month. But hey, I guess if corporations arent people, then they shouldnt have to get the licenses to function. But thats not recieved at the DMV either. Maybe because a building doesnt drive. It kind of is like the 500lb man that is stuck to the bed, maybe tomtom doesnt consider the morbidly obese people "people" either?
    Progressivism; such great ideas, they need to force you to follow them.
