Hobby Lobby and Obamacare

Starting January 1, 2013, Hobby Lobby will be facing a daily fine of $1.3 million dollars until they comply with the HHS Mandate.  Their lawsuit is still pending but this date is a couple of days away.  Their future is at stake. They are well known for their Christian ownership and closing their stores on Sundays so their staff can have a day of rest and be with their families.

Reported by abc news;  "Hobby Lobby is the largest business to file a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services mandate that forces all companies, regardless of religious conviction, to provide coverage of drugs that the lawsuit alleges are abortion-inducing. The Green family also objects to providing coverage for certain kinds of intrauterine devices that the lawsuit alleges can destroy an embryo by preventing it from implanting in a woman's uterus."

Company lawyer Kyle Duncan said "millions of Americans" would consider drugs that prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the womb an abortifacient.  Yes they would so why doesn't our government understand this?

HERE'S an article written by David Green, owner of Hobby Lobby, where he discusses how he started his company and their goals.

May God bless the Green Family for standing up for His truth against government opposition.  May our government heed the Word of God and not enforce businesses to provide morally repugnant healthcare services.  I pray that all businesses and institutions stand strong and oppose this mandate.
