If you're a Hoosier like me, then you've surely heard of Hobby Lobby. I love Hobby Lobby, and I can't get out of that place without buying some unnecessary decor item that goes with absolutely nothing in my house. But that's neither here nor there. Hobby Lobby, like Chick-fil-A, is a Christian-based company, and like many Christian-based entities these days, they are experiencing the trampling of their First Amendment-granted religious freedoms at the hand of Obama and his "free for all!" Obamacare.
Hobby Lobby struck back against the fact that Obamacare doesn't give a rat's ass about the Constitution and the religious freedoms granted within. They, along with their sister company, Mardel Inc., sued the government in September, "claiming the mandate violates the owners' religious beliefs. The owners contend the morning-after and week-after birth control pills are tantamount to abortion becaue they can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in a woman's womb. They also object to providing coverage for certain kinds of intrauterine devices."
And yesterday, a judge rejected their "request to block part of the federal health care overhaul that requires (them) to provide insurance coverage for the morning-after and week-after birth control pills."
Because screw freedom. Yay Obama!
One of the reasons they were rejected is because they're not a church, per se. They're not considered a "religious institution," even though they're a Christian-based company. And they presumably still live in a free freakin AMERICA, but I digress.
Hobby Lobby is going to appeal, and I high-five them for that. It's not often that I agree wholeheartedly with lawyers, but in this case, I vehemently agree with the general counsel for Hobby Lobby when he said that "every American, including family business owners like the Greens, should be free to live and do business according to their religious beliefs."
Amen, Mr. Lawyer Man. Amen.
Of course, while liberals disguise this Obamacare and this whole mandate thing as equality, freedom is being strangled, part by part. After all, it's a very, VERY slippery slope. First, the government mandates something that goes against people's religion, thereby crapping all over our Constitutional right to religious freedom. And next? They'll mandate that you buy a purple car. And after that? They'll mandate that you can't say the word Constitution anymore, because, you know, it's just not PC, y'all.
And one day, they'll trample something that liberals don't want to be trampled. And then? Then, we'll finally see some freakin' outrage, but guess what? It'll be too late.
So it begins...
