>> When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames..

I've always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that's what we've tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week's biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest.
>>
>> We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak economy, we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

>> But now, our government threatens to change all of that.
>>
>> A new government healthcare mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs.
>>
>> It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one.

>> If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in government fines.
>> Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy.

>>
>> Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It's not right. I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it's the same for everybody. But that's not true.
>>
>> The government has exempted thousands of companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won't exempt them for reasons of religious belief.

>> So, Hobby Lobby and my family are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business.

Imposing your religious beliefs on others, while demanding special treatment under the law, is not religious freedom.

LOL, you have it totally wrong. Hobby Lobby is not trying to impose its views on anyone. It just wants to be allowed to live by them.

On the other hand, the obama government is forcing its views on everyone and invoking financial penalties on any who do not comply with the agenda and beliefs of the great chairman moabama.

The left wing government is FORCING its views on everyone------------that, my ignorant friend, is a clear violation of the constitution.

Er, so how does gay marriage work out, Carbine? Don't they have to impose that on someone to get get married? Thought so.

And is not at all what Hobby Lobby is doing.

Nice try.

So Hobby Lobby threatens to close if they can't force their religious beliefs on their employees

It is America and they are free to do so

More american jobs, and an american company destroyed by Obama and his marxist policies.

I'm not seeing how its Obama's fault.


You're really stupid.

Hobby Lobby is failing because you can get all that crap online.

>> If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in government fines.
>> Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy.
>> Our government threatens to fine a company that's raised wages four years running.
>>
>> Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It's not right. I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it's the same for everybody. But that's not true.
>>
>> The government has exempted thousands of companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won't exempt them for reasons of religious belief.
>>
>> So, Hobby Lobby and my family are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don't like to go running into court, but we no longer have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more important than turning a profit.
>>
>> My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the government is going to make that much more difficult.
>>
>> The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I say that's a choice no American and no American business should have to make.
>>
>> The government cannot force you to follow laws that go against your fundamental religious belief. They have exempted thousands of companies but will not except Christian organizations including the Catholic church.
>>
>> Since you will not see this in the liberal media, please pass this on to all your contacts.
>>

>> Sincerely,
>> David Green
>> CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
I almost felt bad for him until he said he had to pay for abortion causing pills or the week after pill.
He won't get much support if he keeps lying.

Gee, I wonder what would have happened if this company had been Muslim?

Crickets.
Are we? Is there a Muslim-Admiration-Society on the Right?
