Hobby Lobby First Business to Openly Defy Obamacare Mandate

Hobby Lobby, a Christian-owned hobby, arts and crafts chain, has decided to risk fines of up to $1.3 million per day and defy the Obamacare mandate that it provide insurance coverage for abortifacient drugs.

The decision is the latest development in Hobby Lobby's suit against the Obama Administration, which has ordered all employers in the country to pay for insurance coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, regardless of religious objections.

In the suit by Hobby Lobby and lawsuits brought by other employers, the Administration has argued that Christians must surrender their religious freedoms if they own a company.

Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor rejected Hobby Lobby's emergency request that it not be required to follow the mandate or be subject to fines until its lawsuit can be decided in a lower court.

Sotomayor, an Obama flunkie, unsurprisingly ruled that it was Obama's way or the highway.

Hobby Lobby, to its owners' credit, chose the highway.

Sotomayor proved both that she is unqualified to sit on the Supreme Court and why she was chosen by Obama when she ruled that Hobby Lobby did not meet the legal definition for an exemption to the Obamacare mandate. That ruling foreshadows how she will argue if and when the case returns to the Supreme Court.

The D.C. Court of Appeals had ruled earlier, noting that the Administration had promised different regulations  by August 2013 for companies whose owners had religious objections to the Obamacare mandate. The court ordered that the Administration should be held to its promise, so it's possible Hobby Lobby may still escape fines.

If that order does not hold, though, the company will be burning money while it fights Obama's frontal assault on religious liberty.

Dozens of other companies, hospitals and universities have also challenged the Obama Administration's effort. The Catholic bishops have led the fight and tried to create a church-wide uprising against the Obamacare mandate.

But the majority of American Catholics didn't follow the bishops' lead, probably due to the church's previous support of Obama and many of the main principles of Obamacare. The church's own liberalism has now come back to roost.

The bishops' failure to rally their church leaves individual owners of companies like Hobby Lobby to lead the fight to preserve freedom for all Americans.

It's been said that liberalism is itself a religion, and abortion is its sacrament.

If that's so, it's a faith of godlessness that the Man Who Would Be King is trying to establish as the state religion. Health care has become a wedge to split Christianity from public life.

        It's good to see someone with a pair buck king Obama. Or that's what he thinks of himself, anyway.

          What do you expect from a Muslim President that never had a legitimate job in his life? Hobby Lobby is to be congratulated for standing up for their beliefs. I promise you our Muslim President stands up for allah and Islam. What were the 51% of Americans thinking when they put this SOB in the White House for 4 more years? Stupid is as stupid does.

        • Hank

          I could not have said it better!! Hopefully, we will find a judge that Obama's bullies can not intimidate into protecting him and put him behind bars or, at least impeach him!! So far, anyone who has even thought of such an event has either been paid off or threatened!

        • Fyrewolffe

          They were thinking of their freebies. Obama-phones anyone?

        • TampaTom

          The clincher was that he promised them that they'll get their twinkies back.
          I'd say yet another promise broken.

          Lets do the Hobby like we did the Chic. Lets line up and give them our business and open support. We can show this marxist islamist qu**r that we are not going to lay down and take his crap like the no n*ts congress is doing.

      • Daniel from TN

        Anti-politically correct lesson for today. The words Congresswoman and Congressperson do not exist. These words were created for political correctness, aka Communism.
        The -man suffix on the end of this word has nothing to do with the male gender. It comes from the Latin word "manos." In Latin, some words were definitely masculine, meaning they applied only to males. Some words were definitely feminine, meaning they applied only to females. Other words were gender neutral, meaning they could apply to a male or a female. Manos is a gender neutral word: It is the Latin word for "hand," meaning it applies to males and females. Manos is the same root word used in "manual labor" and "manual transmission," tasks performed with the hand, whether that hand is male or female.
        End of lesson.

  • CARLjr

    Health Insurance should not be your employers responsibility. When this healthcare plan came down, it should have made each of us responsible for our own healthcare and removed that burdon from businesses. We all should have gotten our health insurance cancelled, then a requirement to buy our own for ourselves and our family. But it is too integrated they said, we want group discounts they said.

    There is an option to not compensate your employees with this benefit. It went all the way to the Supreme Court. If you don't, you pay a tax penalty. It may be substantially cheaper to pay the extra tax than to treat your employees fairly. Just be aware that the type of employee this place will attract will be the bottom of the barrel. I bet it would be an easy place to shoplift.

    • Dealerdeb1

      why should we pay a Tax or a penalty for something we don't want? I don't care what Obama's left wing Maxrist court says. It is all bogus. If no one obliged he wouldn't have enough people to do anything. He'd need an army and the army won't take up arms agaisnst American citizens for that clown. Pretender in chief .

      • CARLjr

        It is your responsibility to compensate your employees. If it was your own personal health insurance that is one thing, but it is not - the mandate is for your employees and their families. If you do not want your employees to be able to see a doctor, you don't have to buy it. You just don't get to take that corporate deduction. When the uninsured go to the emergency room, we all pay.

  • Doodlebug

    What would happen if everyone of us would defy this stupid, law? How long would it take them to realize what they have done to the American people? For one thing, their beloved illegals wouldn't get us to pay for their insurance. Not only do Christians who own a business have to "surrender their religious freedoms," WE ALL do with the government giving some of our tax dollars to support Planned Parenthood. Four years from now, there won't be anything left of our freedoms, religious or otherwise.

    • jo_ella

          Everyone out there needs to remember one very important fact here

          The laws of this nation are what we the people say they are not what the would be Dictators and despots tell us they are. There should be an amendment to the constitution of every state in the union, that no action passed by the government can become law until ratified by a vote of the people. This is OUR nation and OUR rights They work for US.

          Stop fearing YOUR government
          Stop funding their ABUSE of your freedoms and you constitution

          Stop paying taxes

        • dean29685

          Just how do you stop paying your taxes when they are taken out of your check before you get it and by the way declaring bogus deductions will not work under obamacare the company is required to deduct the max and you can fight with the IRS for a refund.

        • ginger

          You claim a excess number of dependents...that's all it takes.

        • ginger

          Meant withholding of course, You will still have ssi taken out but not so much in fed taxes. and you may owe taxes at the end of the year...but so what? They can't put us ALL in jail.

        • dean29685

          you didn't read what I wrote claiming a excess number of dependents is fraud and I don't know many employers willing to pay the fines for you to be able to do that yesterday yes tomorrow (well next month to be exact) under obamacare no
          they as well as you will be fined largely for that dodge.

        • PhaedraDragon

          Claim 9 dependents. You only have to provide names and ages for the nine, when you file your return. Another way to save taxes, is to use the same fiscal year the fed does; from July 1 to June 30.

        • dean29685

          wait till the new forms come out and require SS numbers for your dependents.

        • May-PA

          At this time, you are allowed 9 dependents, any thing over, your employer must report to the federal government.

        • joe

          How about everyone claiming 50 dependents. What could they do? Put everyone in jail. Ha, ha, they're already releasing prisioners. No money to maintain them. We need to stand up to this corrupt government. Let the 52% that voted for Obama support him and his socialistic government. It's time that the 48% stand up and say enough's enough. We need some guts, guys and gals.

        • ginger

          sounds a plan.

        • CARLjr

          Quit your job. Especially if they take taxes out of your check or provide you with health insurance. How dare they.

        • dean29685

          Meaning what?

        • Jay

          You can have your employer hire you as an independent contractor. Then you keep receipts and get a good accountant who can show you how to maximize your deductions.

        • jojo58

          Yes, tell that to lawmakers like Stark, Schumer etc that seem to think that OUR RIGHTS come from THEM. Based on a movie I watched, the Fed, the IRS is illegal too since it was never ratified by the states. Time to start getting our states stronger.

        • http://wahrheitmacher.blogspot.com/ Most Rev. Gregori

          Finally, someone besides me who knows the truth. Yes, the Federal reserve Banking Act and the IRS were NEVER ratified by the states, they were passed in secret with only three Senators in attendance on December 23, 1913 (the rest of Congress was in recess for the Christmas Holiday) and Woodrow Wilson then illegally signed them into law on January 4, 1914. What makes it worse is the fact that even though they knew it was passed unconstitutionally, the US Supreme Court has consistently ruled both acts to be constitutional, which shows just how corrupt they are.

        • PhaedraDragon

          The IRS has been acting in violation of their own rules, since the end of WW2. FDR, during WW2, signed an emergency order that allowed the govt to collect taxes, calling the measure as being a good way to support the country. But that order expired, when Japan surrendered. Since then, the IRS has continued to collect taxes, from the citizens of this country, in an illegal way, by demanding every one pay taxes. The original laws concerning taxes, in this country, make paying taxes VOLUNTARY! Do some research, and you will see I am correct. You only have to pay taxes, if you VOLUNTEER to pay; and then you only have to pay taxes for the year in which you VOLUNTEER to pay taxes. That is why this country was formed the way it was; so that citizens could decide whether or not to pay taxes.

          very good point about the laws of this nation, and i was taught once by a law professor that once upon a time in this country the legal system was set up in order for jurors to not only rule on a defendants guilt ,but also weigh the law. If it was not a good law to throw it out as not guilty. This professor also said that a jury of your peers was not suppose to be a bunch of welfare sisters who have no clue only to be swayed by fast talking lawyers. Your peers knew if you were a scandrel or not and whether or not you were likely to have done that of which you were accused.

          Now if everyone would catch on to what you just said and tell obama NO, NO, and HELL NO! That is exactly what I have been asking and praying everyone would do. EXACTLY....CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE. Civil disobedience in everything. Pay no tax, do NOT join military, boycott, have work stoppages, shut down D.C., March, Raise Hell, bring this nation to a standstill until obama is removed from office. Hell no, no impeachment. The dems. will never do that. I said remove him as in take him out of the White House and run him out of the country. Hope and pray for the "generals to surround him and make him surrender. I don't care how it is done. But start the complete lack of cooperation. This government is illegal anyway. It and obama have broken the oath to protect the people and nation and abide by the Constitution. They are lawless and are criminals by the laws and statutes of the nation. NO COMPLIANCE! CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE! SCREW THE FILTHY SO-CALLED "99 %". SCREW OBAMA AND THE COMMUNISTS AND MUSLIMS. SCREW THEM AND DEFY THEM.

It is when the laws of a society become immoral that civil disobedience becomes moral. I am an individual who has God given rights that my forefathers fault for, so that their children and generations later could appreciate living in a free country and if it means I must fight for them then so be. No one man or tyrannic government dictates or takes away my rights.

        • Daniel from TN

          You are correct about there being no end to the current regime. In case you haven't heard, obama is already planning his THIRD term as president. He has plans to eliminate the 22nd amendment, the amendment that establishes term limits for the president. IMO he will ask for its repeal during the 2013 State of the Union Address. And if he can't get rid of it, he will run anyway. If elected, he will be sworn in and neither the courts nor Congress will do anything to stop it. Congress fears those who back obama MUCH MORE than it fears the people.

    • karin zoanelli

      that is my idea, too. If I was gainfully employed I would ask the company not to deduct any taxes from my income. If I have to look for a job it would definitely one where I can avoid paying taxes. and for one reason only: to kill obama care. lets all support Hobby Lobby as much as chick-Filet. and teach the "government" that they have to be there for US, not the other way around.

      • Floridastorm

        Unfortunately, Karin, an employee cannot force its employer to stop taking tax out of their paycheck. There is no option available. The only option is if you can talk the employer into hiring you as a consultant wherein you will receive a 1099 from the employer at the end of the year which will show how much gross money you earned. It will then be up to you to settle up with the IRS by April 15th.

        • dkeggert tds.net

          This is not true.
          Just up the number of dependants so your deductions will be zero except for social security.

        • Navy Vet

          Oh, but there is another option. Hobby Lobby could layoff all female employees who in the conception age category (let's say up to age 45) and lay off the females who are employed and in that age bracket. A business will do whatever it has to do in order to SURVIVE. Government officials are fools if they believe otherwise.

        • CARLjr

          Great idea. Women should not be in the workplace anyway, right?

        • Alexander Davidson

          I was just contemplating such a response, but you beat me to it! CONGRATS! - This is quite a LOGICAL end-course action by companies trying to cut costs to stay in business: If females are going to cost them extra, either the females are going to buy their own, or be laid off and never re-employed. So the system turns full-circle... females were rarely employed, or at least at far lower rates than males back 30 years ago! - Think! PMS, MENSTRUATION, PREGNANCY, Higher health problem rates, demeanour problems, and now Feminist psychological disorders causing conflict with customers and other staff... all count AGAINST female $ value in the workforce.

        • darkcyder

          Have you ever been to Hobby Lobby? It is a highly FEMALE environment. I wuold guess that their employees are skewed highly to the fairer sex as well. they will not lay off 75% of their work force.

        • Mary Young Robinson

          The Bible in Matthew notes giving Caesar his, and to God His. Also, this is a matter of protecting life which is always God's primary concern...death being Satan's cause...these are Biblical examples. While I agree we should have had the vote as women, I am not sure if there is a Biblical reason to deny law before measures were passed.

        • Alexander Davidson

          God also required every believer to do his/her bit in society as a whole. Vote against the immoral candidates, rebuke sin wherever it is, even if it is homosexual sin, and do not be afraid of the Satanic leaders who support the sins! God dislikes Cowards and Hypocrites. he dislikes them even more than the abominable sexual deviates, like gays. But Jesus called ALL churches and individuals to "Come OUT of Babylon" (also a Facebook page BTW) and return to HIS teachings, and give up the false practices that clash with His teachings... read Gen-2, The Creator requires us to show our ALLEGIANCE to Him only, to be able to be called HIS people, it is repeated again to Moses in Exodus 20. Any other day is a sin, and shows disrespect and dishonour to God. It also means that we DIS-believe Him if we follow after a mere man's law instead of HIS Commandments - which authority and time continuum Jesus repeated in Matthew 5-17 onwards. Jesus NEVER repealed the 10 Commandments, and even warned us against them... going further with John to say that God will never LISTEN to those who are in denial or rebellion against His rule of Law. But Jesus also called us ALL to repent and "come OUT of Babylon" (confused teachings as referred to above)

        yup.

      • Daniel from TN

        The Bible confirms civil disobedience is necessary at times. Acts 5:29 - We ought to obey God rather than man.
        Yes, governments are established by God: government in general and sometimes specific governments. But God understands the heart of man and knows that occasionally government exceeds its God given authority. That is when civil disobedience is justified. The United States is now experiencing such a time. I just hope and pray civil disobedience does not lead to civil war.

      • http://wahrheitmacher.blogspot.com/ Most Rev. Gregori

        WHY NOT?

    • Notonedamncentmore

      Go one step further and don't pay or file your taxes. Civil disobedience, especially when it comes to filing and paying taxes will stop the Obama spending machine. File multiple, 50 or mor, blank tax returns to flood the system. Flood their websites with help requests, How will they overcome the millions of people refusing to obey? Jail us all? Where? They will get the message and once they start workin for the people instead of against them and enriching themselves, it will be time to pay one's just taxes. Meanwhile, resist in any way you can! Resistance will not be futile if united we stand. Our forefathers did so against an oppressive monarchy dictatorship. Don't use violence, ever, but the power of the pen and purse will bring this fascist administration to it's knees.

      Remember when Californians almost brought their State Government to it's KNEES, by WITHHOLDING their TAXES? - what IF we can stop Obama plus all the Anti-American TRAITORS in the Capitol in a similar manner? - BUT we would have to put this link into all our emails and Facebook accounts and anywhere ELSE we can post signs up,,, to STOP THE ROT AT THE ROOT of all EVIL! REFUSE TO GIVE UP TAXES until the Government gives in to THE MAJORITY. -- BTW, Obama didn't REALLY get in with 51% of the MAJORITY of the citizens will - because so many were denied the vote, or were excluded for other reasons, plus there was a lot of complaints of outright vote-changing in the electronic systems! - On top of that, there is a lot of evidence mounting that Obama's Birth Certificate is a genuine FORGERY, proven by an English Lord (an investigator for the ex-PM)! - So WHO IS OBAMA....? Since his BC is a fraud, his name could be also. He may not even BE an American Citizen, but an Al-Quaeda "sleeper" spy, in the right place to destroy America totally from within. IF that is the case, WHO is in the knowledge of this? The CIA? - Hmmm - they always liked to start wars and do anything to continue one at the expense of conscripts and dumb AJ's (Army Jerks). I would advise MY kids NEVER to obey that fake, even IF they had to join the military.... The best place to learn military tactics is IN the military, after all.... savvy? Besides, there is a deadly prophecy about nations going into a war in the Middle East, and ending up being wiped out in an attack on Israel! - Perhaps Obama knows that one, and will use it to wipe out the whole USA military in the ME? - Perfect military move by an enemy playing citizen undercover! (I was in the Australian Army in the MILINTEL section, so that is where my paranoia was most useful in reading ahead....)

      Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, 'Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break'? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.' He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said, 'I ♥ Obama.' I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health...

    Christian businesses like Chick-filet and Hobby Lobby are standing up against evil and deserve our support. They are taking the place of the worthless pulpit pimps in our churches who refuse to speak out against the evil of Maobama. I hope that a time is coming when Christians get sick of the worthless pastors who are afraid to offend anyone. As the Church declines in the USA and the West, maybe it is time to dump the cowardly clergy and look to another type of leadership.

    • George_Smith

      It's sad, but true that many pastors are more interested in job security than they are in proclaiming God's truth. A lot of the decline in our culture could be related to the sorry pulpits in America.

    "The Catholic bishops have led the fight and tried to create a church-wide uprising against the Obamacare mandate. But the majority of American Catholics didn’t follow the bishops’ lead, probably due to the church’s previous support of Obama and many of the
    main principles of Obamacare. The church’s own liberalism has now come
    back to roost."

    I'm an orthodox Catholic who follows the news of the Church very closely, and this statement is not quite accurate. "The Church" has not supported Obama. SOME MEMBERS, including some, but not all bishops, of the Church have supported socialized medicine out of a well-meaning, but misguided attempt to take care of "everyone"; however, that is NOT the same thing as supporting Obama. Furthermore, the bishops have not tried to lead a church-wide uprising against Obamacare, though I wish they would. Their "uprising" has been against the HHS mandate portion of the healthcare bill.

  • SpecialK622

    While Hobby Lobby is fighting this infringement of their rights, I see where they could use this as an opportunity to train their employees on the growth & development of a baby along with health hazards of abortions on women. In other words, expose the liberal lies that the baby is a blob tissue and abortions are safe. So no matter the decision, the truth will be told.

    • CARLjr

      None of their business. Why not tell their employees what foods they should be eating? Why not give them lectures on alcohol and tobacco use? How about they train them on how to balance their checkbook and give suggestions on how their money is being spent?
      This is just a crappy retail job - for an employer who does not care if you get sick.

      • SpecialK622

        Those are good ideas for keeping employees healthy and free from debt.

        • CARLjr

          What if your employer is the federal government, are you still ok with them intruding into your personal life like that? Would you let your Mormon employer forbid you to drink coffee?

        • SpecialK622

          When it comes to the federal government they are already intruding in our lives and that is the point of this discussion. The government wants these God-fearing people to pay for employee abortion pills which they believe (and I agree with) is wrong because of the murdering an innocent child. Women are being lied to when it comes to abortion so the Planned Parenthood can get rich off of murdering babies and risking the lives of the mothers. Their business is to sell death. They hook mothers by lying so they can get their money. Truth hits the abortion mills in their pocketbooks. So, if Hobby Lobby has the ability to use their money for exposing the lies to their employees, all the power to them. Your comparison to the forbidding of drinking coffee is really lame.

        • CARLjr

          So it's ok for you to impose your religious beliefs on others, but not ok for other religions to do it too?

        • SpecialK622

          So are you saying that not killing innocent people is strictly a religious belief?

        • CARLjr

          I'm saying telling your employees what medication they cannot take is no different from telling them they cannot drink caffeine.

        • SpecialK622

          The government has no right to make an employer go against their beliefs to pay for medication that kills an innocent child.

        • CARLjr

          They are not. They only require you pay for insurance for your employees. You do not get to know how that insurance is used or what procedures or medications your employee or their family gets. It's none of your business. You also don't know if they get Xanax, Lipitor, or get a mole removed or their tubes tied. Your conscience is not involved - unless you refuse to allow them to get insurance at all. Then you should feel like a jerk.

        • SpecialK622

          An abortion pill is quite different from what you listed. The abortion pill KILLS a child (innocent human being) within the mother, along with high risk health complications for the mother as well. The company has not said and neither have I said anything about the employees being denied any health insurance. The company knowing that the abortion pill is destroying an innocent life wants no part of it on the grounds of their Christian faith. The Constitution says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or PROHIBITING the free exercise thereof..." Along with The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) which is a federal law preventing laws that create a burden for a person's free exercise of their religion. The government is prohibiting the exercise of their faith by making them pay for abortion pills.

        • SpecialK622

          This isn't about me. It is about the government dictating actions that force people to go against their faith.

  • Lauralee Hensley

    If Muslims don't have to buy into Obamacare then Christians don't need to either. You can't show favoritism to one group based on their faith and not to another group based on their faith. Planned parenthood has always been a thorn in the side. If those women or men want to have sex then they should be accountable for paying for their own precautions against pregnancy, or be accountable for the child should a woman become pregnant. If they don't want the pregnancy they should have to pay for their own abortions because we didn't make them have sex in the first place. We didn't place no gun to their heads and say for them to do something that could lead to a possible child. Yes, I feel sorry for women that might have been raped, but I think if they want to take a morning after pill, one time, that they should be able to afford that or ask a friend or parent for a loan and not tell them what the loan is for if needed. Yet, not all rapes lead to pregnancy. I have no problem paying via taxes for HIV testing of women or men who may have been raped and even medications should they test positive, but that is not the same thing as paying for an abortionist or the morning after pills. God knew you before you were born according to the Bible, so he knew you were more than a glob of tissue from conception. I don't hate or condemn those that have had abortions and actually know some women who have had them. God can forgive them or judge them, that is not my right as a Christian, but I don't want my taxes to pay for something that treads on my religious beliefs. It was better a millstone were hung around their necks then to harm a little one, and the littlest of these is the one still in the womb.

    • Sandra Lee Smith

    • NM Leon

      The law sucks, and hopefully the courts will overturn it, but Muslims aren't exempt.

      The law defines exempt groups using the definition from 26 U.S. Code section 1402(g)(1), which describes the religious groups currently considered exempt from Social Security payroll taxes. Eligible sects must forbid any payout in the event of death, disability, old age or retirement, including Social Security and Medicare.

      Since we posted our article, we’ve obtained a list through the Freedom of Information Act of all the groups that have successfully applied for exemptions from payroll taxes. (We have posted the Excel file here.) The overwhelming majority of them are explicitly Anabaptist — that is, Mennonite, Amish or Hutterite. Those that don’t specify their denomination are still explicitly Christian. Having gone through the list, we can say with certainty that no Muslim group, and indeed no non-Christian group, has ever qualified for an exemption under the statute used to define exempt religious groups in the health care law. http://www.factcheck.org/2010/05/dhimmitude-and-the-muslim-exemption/

        DUH? Online shopping actually CREATES jobs, more than a brick-and-morter department store. Rather than two or three persons on a store sales floor and - maybe - one stock boy in the back companies with online sales must have many more persons to operate. Among them there must be numerous customer service operators to take orders, an army of warehouse pickers and packers, truck loaders, shippers, and the office staff to keep track of everything from order processing to accounts receivable and payable. Then there's the IT programers and systems troubleshooters. Believe me because I've seen it from the inside! It takes at least TWICE the personnel to properly and efficiently run an online sales company than to staff a walk-in store.

        • CARLjr

          Not if you are talking about hundreds of stores. Plus, many of those IT programmers and truck divers are contracted out and not true employees.

    An important thing that people have got to know. The FBI is now monitoring all electronic correspondence. They now have access to your entire internet communication. They know what emails you've sent and received. They know what text messages you have sent and received. They know what instant messages and forums you use. They know every website that you access from your computer, tablet, or IPhone. Many people have been arrested already for making harmless suggestions or agreeing that we need a change of government. Our first amendment rights, under the Bill of Rights, is quickly being dissolved by fanatical Leftists in this administration. It is not the good people who work for the FBI, who are doing this. It's the agenda driven white house cabinet that is ordering the FBI and other organizations to blatantly scrutinize American citizens. We are slowly becoming a reflection of the old Soviet Union and the American people don't even realize it in the same way that the Russian people never fully realized it.

    We have to hope more businesses start to oppose this ridiculous Obamacare. People need to start getting representatives in Congress instead of the crooks and liars we have. We need a massive reform of Congress. Everybody out and all new with huge salary, expense and staff cuts. We need term limits for EVERYBODY. They argue we have term limits by voting but that's bull. House members get reelected by giving away tons of money to their constituents who don't have a clue or don't care about the rest of the country. They steal them blind and the STILL elect them. Term limits will just about put an end to the stealing.

    don't stop them now. They are out of control. Whatever happened to those in

  • A True American Citizen

    Just as stated before, Justice Soda Pop is a Obama Stooge. She was told by that thing, that she would be nominated for the Supreme Court if you "Do As I Tell You"! "Oh Yes Sir, Surely Will Every Time You Ask"! "JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS, SIR"! America, just do as you are told and all will be well! It is amazing how many people believe that Obobblehead is the "SUPREME BEING ON EARTH" or even "GOD STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN". I got news for you believers, No Heavenly Being Would Ever Do Anything Like That!

  • http://twitter.com/ObamaDualer Oak_Tree

    This is the fault of weak willed Republicans in Congress. We told you Obama was an usurper. But our Representatives said wait until the court decides...we'll take care of it that way. Then you said wait until the next election...we'll take care of it that way.

    Your cowardice allowed Sotomayor take her seat. Now we will see more Obama judicial appointments at all levels. Isn't that special!

    Then Obama stole the election through election fraud. You pretend it didn't happen. What else would you expect a serial fraudster to do? He has committed fraud time and again.

    He lies all the time. That's what fraudsters do. Now we hear that if only we would run the right candidate we can win next time. Do you understand that Obama and the Democrats have found that they can steal the elections, yet the Republicans will play dumb. It doesn't matter who is running. When an election is rigged, their guy will win.

    America was seriously wounded in 2008 when the Republican leadership allowed an usurper to take office. The US died November 6, 2012.

    We are no longer a free society even if the name on the 'package' says USA. We are in a post-USA America, being run by fraudsters who prefer Mao and Marx to Lincoln and Washington.

    A very cojent and well scripted article indeed! As a baptized Catholic, I found it abhorrent and unthinkable that the American Bishops did not call out the President and his cronies, by name, concerning their staunch hatred for the one true church and her sacred teachings; however, this shouldn't suprise the faithful, for the Lord saith to his disciples, "the world hated me before it will hate you." We should all see very clearly now that democratic pluralism is no substitute for authentic love for Christ and true living of the gospel. Let us all stand with Hobby Lobby by calling the company personally this week and pledging with them to go the way of the cross, fines or imprisonment or come what may!

    They need to demand a jury trial and then we only need ONE SINGLE JUROR to vote his/her conscience and declare the defendant "Not Guilty." No reason is necessary. Jurors have the right to vote their conscience. It's called JUROR NULLIFICATION

  • jime1

    Well now, every true Conservative reading this article needs to walk into the nearest Hobby lobby and buy something, doesn't really matter much what that is . Then at the checkout tell the teller to add $5 just because. It makes my heart sing to know that someone is willing to put their money where their mouth is rather than just talk tough.

  • G2Shoes

    Although I totally support Hobby Lobby in its battle with our bloated government on this issue, I don't understand why they don't just drop their group health insurance and pay the difference directly to their employees to buy their own. How many days of million plus fines can H.L. withstand?

    Since when does a business owner have to yield his right to practice his religion, in deference to someone else's 'right' to have someone pay for their abortion? Our Constitutional rights are being discarded by this administration. Somehow a person has a 'right' to an abortion - I never saw any such thing in the Constitution - and the government is now allowed to pass laws that make people give up their religion? This is all wrong, wrong, wrong.

  • rs1123

    When will this administration try to force some Muslims to do something against their religion? I'm waiting....

  • pduffy

    Now you can see why congress should not have the power to appoint judges. Corruption appoints corruption. They just appoint the stooges that will not oppose their will. This woman was picked for this very reason. The courts were supposed to be a 'check and balance' against a rogue government that violates the constitution, but they have failed, and have joined in concert with them to deprive the people of their individual liberty using the tyranny of the IRS. The founders are rolling over in their graves.

  • Ohcraps

    Remember too that Quakers (and Muslims) can claim exemption under religous beliefs that insurance is "gambling" or some such thing.

    • CARLjr

      Not true.

  • pduffy

    Unfortunately, Hobby Lobby will still be forced into funding the drugs, just via the 'fines' the IRS will collect. To really make a stand, they must refuse to pay the fines, and that means going to jail, or fighting the IRS with force. It has come to this end, and now we will see who has 'counted the cost' of freedom.

  • Alexander Davidson

    QUOTE: " has argued that Christians must surrender their religious freedoms if they own a company." UNQUOTE... I must tell you all, that ALL "Christians / Jews / Muslims" (IE: visibly apparent but not really following their God The Creator) have never followed Jesus according to His teachings, (which He also gave MOSES as the "I AM" He admitted to being) .... and so the CURSES of the 2nd. Commandment are now more VISIBLE to many, and upon the infidels (those who are NOT truly following), including those HYPOCRITE Priests and Pastors, who would rather lead their congregation AWAY from THE TRUTH and THE WAY, than ADMIT the evident truth of Jesus WORD in Matthew 5:17 etc.... understand the English CONTEXT in His words "I have NOT come to DESTROY the Law or Prophets, BUT to fulfil..." (meaning to fill out in such context: the opposite of DESTROY) - Thus the teachings of the churches was to be OPPOSITE to what their alleged GOD has taught them.... and has since 231 AD when Constantine created the setting for the "Mark of The Beast" - and the beginning of the Church's BABYLON or confusion. YET The Christ call all of them to COME OUT of such Babylon or confusion, and they STILL refuse to do so. They are UNREPENTANT yet, and will be that way when PROBATION ends, and still be FILTHY in the eyes of God and good men. It is must be even more GALLING to the churches, that a Profit-making COMPANY being steered by it's OWNER is far more MORAL than the church itself! - LAST CALL folks! - Join in with what GOD TEACHES, or suffer the CONSEQUENSES of your bowing down to that mortal little god OBAMA. It is an ORDER from GOD that to prove your allegiance to your CREATOR, you must REFUSE to OBEY the Son of Satan's rules! (Post your responses also on "Come out of Babylon" on Facebook if you wish, but read the reasons before you do,

  • jojo58

    What's crazy is the argument that because Hobby Lobby and for that matter the Catholic church hires people from outside of their faith, they have to obey Obamacare...so what would happen if Hobby Lobby and the catholic church opted to only hire evangelical Christians and the catholic church only Catholics? The ACLU and the federal government would cite them for discrimination. The government wants it both ways. Go figure. The bottom line is that NO ONE is holding a gun to anyone's head to apply for a job or college owned by a certain religious group. But...I do have to wonder what would happen if the businesses or hospitals were owned and operated by muslims? In fact, I believe muslims, unions, congress, and other pet organizations are already exempt. Just by exempting muslims, ALL religions must be exempt.

    • CARLjr

      This is not a religious organization. It is a retail store.
      Muslims are not exempt.
      If there was a craft store competitor run by Muslims, they would also be required to offer health insurance to their employees.

  • roundboy

    How about we all support Hobby Lobby like we did Chick Filet. We can at least show our support for them.

  • Diane

    Yes and if more businesses would stand up and declare their rights and the rights of the employees you would see things start to change. Governement isnt afraid of One company standing their ground. We have got to get behind the good moral people Christian or not. Which I am a Christian, but there are very good moral hard working people who have worked hard for what they have. To stand and allow this govenment to take away our rights. You see how long the Gays stood still when they felt their rights were being violated. Their life style is between them and God. But I will tell you God will hold us accountable for not standing up for our God-Given rights and allowing them to take away what rightfully belongs to us. I'm really tired of hearing talk about what the government is doing and not alot of people getting behind each other and demanding their rights. I know alot more have started doing that especially over the gun issue. But it's time to rise. God will not take lightly those who compromise and sit back and just talk about all that's going on and not putting forth any efforts to help those who are doing something. Talk is cheap. Action is where it is at. Too many afraid what the government gonna do...We better be awhole lot more concerned what God is gonna do!!!!

We have the same rights as the corrupt unions, so why not rip a page from their play book and start playing by their rules. If we all stand together and defy the government as ONE, we can win. If we don't, we WILL go down and there won't be any coming back.

    it wasn't for those two IDIOTS coming out against a woman who had been

    these horrible problems our country is facing is a third party, fiscally
    conservative but socially middle of the road and unattached to policies
    like gay marriage and abortion. If you think about it with a clear
    head, you will understand that these are two topics that nobody is going
    to change their minds on and to try and stuff it down their throats
    like the "zealots" always try to do is totally counter productive.

    Good for Hobby Lobby! I hope and pray they win. We must do all we can to support anyone fighting against the illegal, unconstitutional, and immoral Obamacare law. It must never be allowed to become effective! And one of the ways we can fight it as citizens is to stop paying our Federal Income tax. If they are going to make illegal rules, then we are not obligated to support them. We need millions of Americans to stop paying these taxes which are being used in a way we do not morally approve of. Pay your State taxes, but tell the feds to take a hike. Just file a 5th Amendment Return, with nothing on it. If enough of us do this it will help shut down the Marxists in Washington... and restore our republic to sanity once again.

    What would anyone expect from a Godless woman like Sotomayor?

  • Schrecken

    This is great to hear, as so many seem want to just give up since pretty much every legal option that people were hoping on is gone. I will be joining this company in defying Obamacare (I'd shop there too but they don't have any stores anywhere near where I live) and I suggest that everyone else who is able to should reject it.
    First thing to do (this assumes you work for a company and not for yourself; if you work for yourself things are a bit easier) is to approach your employer and ask to have your witholding on your w-2 adjusted for this coming year so that you pretty much break even at tax time. For instance, say you got $1,500 back last year in a refund. Well, reduce the amount of Federal taxes taken out so that you only get back maybe $50 or so. Yes, this will ruin the time-honored tradition of waiting for that nice tax refund, but hey, why should you give the gov't an interest-free loan for 12 months?
    If you are self-employed you probably want to slightly under-pay your quartierlies, but not enough to trigger a penalty.
    Then, when it comes time to file in the spring of 2014, just leave the part on your tax form blank that will ask nosy questions about what kind of health insurance you have. Don't give 'em diddly squat. So then, when they attempt to penalize you, they won't be able to do a thing except maybe grab that $25 you have coming to you in the form of a tax refund. Or, if you want to owe them a few bucks, they will have absolutely zilch to seize.

    This is how the average person says "____ it" to Obamacare (and Obama). Also, whatever you do, don't have anything to do with the exchanges if you are in a state that is setting them up. If your employer tries to force you into one, refuse! Or simply drop the insurance if your employer won't abide by your wishes. Remember, under Obamacare, you can always re-up if you need to have something done (and people doing just that will cause the whole thing to collapse faster than a sand castle at high tide!), and then just cancel the policy right afterwards. We need to use the endless rules and regulations of this law to turn it against itself and cause it to fail spectacularly. Use them like political martial arts - turn the strength and power of the law against it and it will collapse. I think if enough people do this sort of thing, the insurance companies will cry uncle and make a desperate bid to escape and turn solidly against Obama and the Democrats when they are about to fail and didn't get what they were promised.

    Many years ago, I was sitting on the porch with a friend overlooking US Hwy 6. We heard a rumble down the road and saw a group of about 50 motorcycles heading our way riding 4 abreast. It was a group of Hell's Angels coming through town at about 10 MPH. A cop car came up behind them with his lights on and hit the siren. They were breaking the law by not wearing helmets. The bikers just kept riding. The cop passed them and pull in front and stopped. They just split ranks and went around the cop car 2 rows on each side. The cop again got in front of them and this time he got out of his car with a shot gun. Again the Hell's Angels just kept on going, still about 10 MPH. The cop jumped back in his car, turned off the lights and made a U-turn and went back into town. We laughed until the tears started running.
    The point of this is that if we just keep on keeping on, they will eventually get tired of trying to stop us and will give up. There are too many of us for them to handle.

  • FloridaJoel

    Mr. Cronn writes "If that’s so, it’s a faith of godlessness that the Man Who Would Be King is trying to establish as the state religion. Health care has become a wedge to split Christianity from public life."
    He is precisely correct in his analysis and Americans better read with care his words of wisdom. When Christians and moral non-Christians are driven from the mainstream and marginalized, this society will descend into a pit from which it will never recover. We don't have to look beyond the Middle East (Israel excluded) and South Asia to catch a glimpse of that will look like.

  • Truth goes 100 MPH

    Ever hear of a 0 MPH convoy? With the price of fuel so expensive, there is a good chance EVERY SINGLE highway could be TEMPORARILY blocked by people who ran out of fuel. If the road has three travel lanes, it could be a coincidence that 3 cars run out of fuel at the same time. All lanes blocked! Of course there could be some other people behind them that also ran out of fuel. Maybe some nice Policeman can help you start your car. "Gee thanks officer. You just have a perfect way of turning that key." Showing up at a store with all pennies sure slows up a lunchtime crowd. We must compose a list of ALL businesses that supported this illegal regime. How about you and one hundred of your friends go window shopping, INSIDE of a store that supported the Imposter In Chief. Now I am not saying you should buy something there; just look real hard and move real slow for safety reasons. Drive real slow through their parking lots as we wouldn't want to hurt their loyal customers. Maybe even go around the block and drive through again just to make sure you get that perfect parking spot. See a disabled vehicle on the side of a road? Best you call 911 as we all know that there are plenty of bad guys out there that may do them harm. Hopefully we won't tie up 911. Drive through a toll booth lately? Aren't they required to accept all currency? Those toll collectors sure are very precise in how they count change. Pennies sure take a while to count. Starting to get the idea? The list is endless. Let the games begin.

    Socialism doesn't work well with any form of Christian religion around, so part of the game is to slowly (faster if he could) splinter the churches with his 'laws' and anti-Christian social scheme.

    If women want to go out and slut around having sex with every Tom, Dick & Harry on the street they should pay for their own contraceptives and morning after pills. Why the hell should we be forced to pay for loose women!!!

    If I were the owner of Hobby Lobby, I would sell off my inventory and close the business letting everyone know that it was Obama and Sotomajor who caused 41,000+ employees to lose their jobs. I sure the owners of Hobby Lobby can live quite well on the proceeds and don't need the aggrevation of dealing with this administration.

    The amount and magnitude of corruption in this administration and our government is staggering. I pray that there is still a chance that we can turn around as a nation.But it will take an all-out, old fashioned, Holy Ghost revival-you know, like the kind they make fun of in the movies, the kind that liberals mock and despise-to turn the nation from destruction. There's an anger that has seeped into the Body of Christ. We must give our anger to God before He is going to descend on this nation in the way He wants to.

    I hope the business owners stand together to defeat the punishing bill Obama and his minions forced on the US citizens. How do our reps justify signing a bill into law without reading it? Is something missing or is this their usual practice? They did however, look at Obama- care long enough to write themselves, and some favored groups from complying with it. And the smug Ms.Sibelius, (a so called in name only Catholic) granted exemptions to some others. She, and quite a few others are playing favorites which goes against the Constitution, but then they have no worries because a complicit court system is aiding them to avoid answering for their biased actions against Christian beliefs. America is in trouble, due to all the unseemly actions taking place which are hurting the economy, religion, businesses and US citizens, while our good reps seem immobilized and unable to act to put an end to the Empirical ways of the administration. One or more of them need to wake up and soon!!

    Obama won't go after the state of California for helping illegals. He won't enforce that law!

    The debate really comes down to, "can one use their religious freedom, to deny someone else religious freedom, and their federal rights"? Obviously the answer is no. If you are an employer, who objects to abortion services, then the employer as an individual should not pay for abortions for themselves. However, if as an employer, you hired someone or people with different convictions about the subject (opposed to yours), you do not have the right to assert your religious convictions on your employees. That strips those employees of their "religious freedoms". This is one of the consequences of living under the Constitution of the United States. If as a Christian employer, you discriminate against hiring non-Christians, you are breaking the law, could be taken to task in court, and you would lose. Although this may appear ugly to some, it is the truth. You can't boast your religious freedom, and deny others' theirs in the process. That is clearly subjective freedom, and thereby anti-freedom.

    Not Obama's way or the highway, it's Obama's way or the high road.

    First off I don't know who is Hobby Lobby's insurance carrier. But it seems that if the Insurance carrier doesn't cover it under it's health care policies that Hobby Lobby should not be required to go out to purchase another insurance carrier that provides coverage for the after sex pill. I sure they don't insure themselves. It should be the responsibility of insurance companies to provide coverage at no extra cost to companies it represents, since it will be a law for coverage.

    WE all need to buy our goods from Hobby Lobby so that they have the money to pay the fines. Then we MUST elect enough Conservative Senators to get those 51 votes to get rid of Obamacare even after it is in effect for 2 years. But...I believe the Conservatives in Congress care more about keeping their seats than they do us. They don't have to worry about Obamacare....WE DO! And we have seen what Boehner does to TEA Party Conservatives.

  • onepatrioticlady

    Good for them. If more business owners would tell Ovomit NO, there would be some changes. We have the right to keep our religious freedoms. I love Hobby Lobby . And like Chick Filet, they will always get my business. It is time we All stood up for our religious as well as freedom rights and told this socialist dipstick NO. He can't possibly arrest and put all of us in jail. Although Harry Belefonte thinks all conservatives need to be in prison.

  • WhiteFalcon

    I keep thiking more and more that it is time for a Constitutional Convention to simply get rid of this Government and replace it with one that is bound by the Constitution. I would like term limits for the congress and the Supreme Court built into it as well as a provision whereby the states could decide if any Federal law would apply in their state and if a majority of states opted to not have the law in their state, the law would be declaired null and void and be striken from the Federal Code. There are other things that I would like as well but those are two that would do a lot of good.

  • 2deep4u?

    How is this happening? How is the Federal government able to do this sort of thing?

    The
    reason is that we are US citizens. Hardly anyone understands what it
    means to be a US citizen. US citizenship means that one is a citizen of
    Washington, D.C.

    Originally a citizens of one of the several
    states, was NOT a US citizen. The term "United States citizen" was used
    to signify someone living in one of the territories of the US. State
    citizens were citizens of the state where they were domiciled.

    We all have been tricked into becoming "US citizens", and thus citizens of Washington, D.C.

    In
    Washington, D.C., Congress has the constitutional authority to make all
    laws, rules, and regulations, that pertain to the District, it's
    Territories and Possessions. All legislation, that Congress puts forth,
    applies to US citizens since they are Washington, D.C, citizens.

    The
    only legislation that applies to a citizen of a state must comply with
    the 17 enumerated powers that Congress has been granted in Article 1
    Section 8 of the Constitution.

    Just because they have to provide health care that offers these drugs doesn't mean there employees are going to use them. And most companies' employees have money taken from their pay check to pay for this insurance. So really the employees are paying for it.

  • Walt

    Here is something we can do - Everybody get their taxes ready but nobody mails them till the last day. Think about all the problems that would create. The IRS would have no time to worry about Obamacare or anything else all year.

    666.....666.... the DEMon Party is 666. What else do you expect from them? They are doing the WILL of their leader. Hey, we know where the VICTORY is so just keep your eyes on the MARK (and it's not barrack huessin obama)

  • TeaParty Patriot

    .
    Let's see, If the Hobby lobby owners have to violate their religious principles to provide full time employees abortion chemicals, I would think that maybe the Hobby Lobby owners might do just as Walmart is doing right now and only employ part time employees and/or contract for temporary employees to eliminate the violation of their religious beliefs. I Wonder what the owebomb is gonna do to manipulate the layoff statistics? ? ? ?

  • Jason Johnson

    Good for Hobby Lobby. The law is unconstitutional; therefore, it does not have to be obeyed. I wonder--could this law amount to a taking of private property for public use? If so, the feds are obligated to reimburse the entrepreneurs.
