As I reported a few days ago, the Christian owned craft store Hobby Lobby has came under attack from Pro Abortion Activists because of their opposition to the federal mandate in Obamacare that requires businesses to provide what is commonly called the “morning after pill. This pill essentially prevents a fertilized egg to implant itself on the uterine wall thus aborting the spark of life. Although they have received support from Pro Life advocates, they are facing boycotts from these Pro Abortion groups. So once again we need to rise up and support those that are standing up for religious liberties in this country.
Sources citing the Hobby Lobby Boycott
The Examiner reports that these groups are organizing a boycott and making crazy claims that Hobby Lobby wants to deny basic health care and if you can believe it, “cancer treatments” to it’s employees. Once again we see these groups engaging in dishonest rhetoric rather than addressing the issues.
According to the Examiner these groups are claiming that Hobby Lobby is playing God. They say that Hobby Lobby has not right to deny certain procedures or medications to their employees that are “legal” just because it goes against the belief system of the owners. Hmmm, what is the definition of an “owner” now days?
Hobby Lobby has been getting flamed by these groups on their Facebook Page in the comments sections of the posts they make. These misinformed people seem to forget that people have a choice whether or not to accept a job based on health care coverage. It is one more example of people thinking they are “entitled” to something when we supposedly live in a free market society. If murdering babies is one of the things a person wants in their health care coverage, then they can find a despicable company that provides it. The federal government does not have the right to violate a person or company’s right to practice their religious beliefs as they seem fit.
Another ding dong posted a flaming picture of the Hobby Lobby Logo with a very unimaginative red circle with a line through it on Flickr. If you want to read the ignorance of some people you should read the comments. The so called creative genius that made this picture wrote this.
Even if you’re pro-life this kind of action stinks to high heaven! If things like this can be allowed then what’s next?! They could do such things as not cover cancer treatment because it’s “playing God”. Hobby Lobby has NO right to deny certain procedures or medications that are LEGAL to their employees based on their own beliefs. Specifically denying a women the morning after pill could potentially force a rape victim to have her rapists child. I find this whole thing to be revolting and I cannot and will not support this company anymore.
Talk about someone who doesn’t get it!
Rise up and support Hobby Lobby.
I am telling you people, if you allow the federal government to dictate to business what they can or cannot do in regards to living out their religious beliefs, then the citizenry will be next. It is time we stopped acting like our religious liberties have no meaning or value and put a stop to government violation and encroachment on our constitutional rights. This is an obvious case of government making a law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. I think it is time for a support Hobby Lobby day!
