Johnny's post about Hobby Lobby gave me the idea to start this post.  I have, for quite some time now, felt that there are two ways to vote - with your ballot, and with your dollar - and I think that the latter way is (sadly) much more effective than the former.  Therefore, it would make sense to keep your dollars away from businesses that go out of their way to push religion on you and instead support businesses which run themselves as companies instead of bible warehouses.  The difficult part of this is knowing which companies do and which don't - hence, we arrive at my idea for a business directory that suggests desirable companies (i.e. those proclaiming secularism outright) and undesirable companies (those like Hobby Lobby).  This would also give closeted atheists a voice in the matter as they could  silently support their viewpoints without having to be excommunicated because of their vocal non-beliefs.  Perhaps one day, people will finally get the message that business life and personal life should remain separate.  They obviously will not come to this conclusion of their own common sense, but people begin to sit up and take notice when the revenue dwindles.

There was a site for this ( but it seems to be defunct now.
