Good for Hobby Lobby - one of my FAVORITE stores in the world!
Today, Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a privately held retail chain with more than 500 arts and crafts stores in 41 states, filed a lawsuit in the US District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma, opposing the Health and Human Services “preventive services” mandate, which forces the Christian-owned-and-operated business to provide, without co-pay, the “morning after pill” and “week after pill” in their health insurance plan, or face crippling fines up to $1.3 million dollars per day.
“By being required to make a choice between sacrificing our faith or paying millions of dollars in fines, we essentially must choose which poison pill to swallow,” said David Green, Hobby Lobby CEO and founder. “We simply cannot abandon our religious beliefs to comply with this mandate.”
Come on Obamacare supporters—usually the same people that believe government should be out of the womb, God out of the schools, and Christian symbols shouldn’t be seen by the general public—explain to us why Christians in this country should be forced to support and pay for abortion against their religious values…
Go ahead. Explain it within the context of religious freedom and the dangerous over-reach of government that our Founding Fathers believed, espoused, and lived by.
It is by God’s grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured,” said Green. “Therefore we seek to honor God by operating the company in a manner consistent with Biblical principles. The conflict for me is that our family is being forced to choose between following the laws of the country that we love or maintaining the religious beliefs that have made our business successful and have supported our family and thousands of our employees and their families.”
By God’s grace I pray that Obamacare and its founder, Obama, are overturned and turned out, respectively, in about two months.
