Hobby Lobby is a prime example of America as a land of opportunity. This family-owned company started in 1970 with a $600 loan and a garage workshop, and today boasts 588 stores in 47 states and 13,000 full-time employees. The owners are devout Christians who treat their employees very well, donate a big hunk of their profits to charity, and are closed on Sundays.
The issue in the Supreme Court case is that the Obama Administration is trying to force Hobby Lobby’s owners to provide abortion-inducing products that violate their religious beliefs. Hobby Lobby’s owners are not demanding that those products be banned or that anyone be prohibited from using them. Hobby Lobby’s owners just do not want to pay for items that violate their religious beliefs. The Supreme Court will render a decision later this spring.
