This comes as no surprise, same-sex-partner benefits are good for business, regardless of what the law says about same-sex marriage. Attracting and retaining employees is good for business, and benefit plans attract and retain employees.

You've got Hobby Lobby, and Cracker Barrel - you've had your "own place within the marketplace" for a long time already (usually solo, uncontested by dissenting voices) - until the last decade or so. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the marketplace.
