SCOTUS Decision Puts Nation On Right Path

Hobby Lobby

Written by Beth Rogers 

This is in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision involving Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, which have sincere religious objections to providing insurance coverage for items that can destroy a human life at its earliest stages.

These family-owned Christian businesses contended that the Affordable Care Act mandate violated its First Amendment right to freedom of religion.

For more than 40 years, the Green family of Hobby Lobby has run its business on Christian principles and sees the business as an extension of the family. Their mission is to run the business in harmony with God’s laws and to focus on people more than money. They want to continue to live out their faith in the way they do business in a manner that is compatible with religious freedom, the most fundamental First Amendment freedom.

Freedom is grounded in truth, and truth is that which is consistent with the righteousness of God. The signers of the Declaration of Independence acknowledged that our rights have been given to us by our creator. The Bible and Christianity are a part of our heritage and history and have been the underpinnings of a fair and just society.

Many people of faith operate their businesses on these principles. The outcome of this case has put our nation in the right direction with a significant victory for those who cherish religious freedom.
