The Supreme Court has decided to hear Hobby Lobby’s religious-freedom argument against the Obamacare contraception mandate. During this special time of the year, let us all take a moment to give thanks that John Roberts will have yet another chance to kick us all collectively in the nuts.
The Green family [owners of Hobby Lobby], which also runs a chain of Christian bookstores, understands that religious belief is not a Sabbath-only deal. And they are fighting for your right to let God influence your life beyond an hour or Sunday or whenever your worship time may be. (Listen to their explanation here.)
“This legal challenge has always remained about one thing and one thing only: the right of our family businesses to live out our sincere and deeply held religious convictions as guaranteed by the law and the Constitution. Business owners should not have to choose between violating their faith and violating the law, Hobby Lobby CEO David Green commented in a statement in response to the Court news.
