    I am compelled to write points of clarification to Mr. Peter Dobelbower’s defense of Hobby Lobby.

    The anti-Semitic mode of operation is secured within the business model of a company that defines its mission as being centered in one specific religious ethic. The shopping experience of those who do not align with the religious theme marketing and merchandise are specifically excluded. This is not isolated to one store; it is consistent throughout the company plan.

    This company tries to dictate values and morals defined by ownership. Hobby Lobby does not own religious inclusion or personal choice.

    Having first-person experience with this anti-Semitic perspective, I will spend my discretionary dollars in a more inclusive market. This, too, is a personal choice. I choose inclusion over exclusion and segregation.
