Applying the Hobby Lobby decision

A friend notes:
The company simply does not want to be forced to pay for something to which it objects.
Since it's the Supreme Court, other courts have to apply this ruling in future cases.  So here's a few:
  • I'm a Christian Scientist, and believe that all conventional medicine is wrong.  Does my company have to pay for any of my employees' healthcare?
  • I'm a fundamentalist Mormon who rejects Spencer W. Kimball's 1978 revelation and believes that black people are cursed with the mark of Cain.  I don't like EEO law, but understand that my company has to hire qualified black people. Does it have to pay for their healthcare?
