These may be very "eye opening" statement, but they need to be spoken. Only in America are the rights of the most innocents taken in the name of so called "pro-choice" people. Okay, the opposite of LIFE is NOT
'Choice"...it is DEATH...the opposite of STRAIGHT is NOT "Gay"...it is CROOKED...the definitions speak a message of the true meaning of a word. Opposite: situated, placed, or lying face to face with something else or each other, or in corresponding positions with relation to an intervening line, space, or thing: opposite ends of a room. 2. contrary or radically different in some respect common to both, as in nature, qualities, direction, result, or significance; opposed: opposite sides in a controversy; opposite directions.(Collins English Dictionary - Complete & Unabridged 10th Edition.

If Hobby Lobby sells ANYTHING I need, I intend to give them my business. I hope all Christians appreciate their courage enough to support them wherever possible.
I support Hobby Lobby....My wife loves the place and that's where my business for her crafts will go.
Might someone show me where the founders created a welfare state and instead of having created a REPUBLIC they gave us what would later become the USSA 'United Socialist States of America?
The left has fooled this nation into becoming a welcome wagon for the malcontents of other nations all the while demanding we give to those unwilling to help themselves, not the real needy, an access to a continuance of their greed.
This is probably the first time in history there's been an attack like this on the Christian Faith, isn't it? I don't remember anything like this. I'm so sick of hearing about "precedent." Precedent isn't the law. The Constitution is the law. So if a corrupt judge issues a ruling, like this leftist parading around as a legitimate Supreme Court Justice, other judges should follow? Doesn't that just make them corrupt?
It's time to ignore the Supreme Court. They aren't God. They aren't the final say in anything. They are acting corruptly, including Roberts, so it's time to ignore them. We know how to read. We don't need them twisting the words of the Constitution to fit their agenda. Shame on the "Wise Latina." She isn't so wise.
"Now we come to the HFR Hero of the Week, a fully appropriate one for the end of 2012 and harbinger of 2013.
On Wednesday (12/26), Justice Sonia "Wise Latina" Sotomayor refused to block the contraception mandate in Zerocare. That this is clear-and-present-danger evidence the Supreme Court has become a political institution that has abandoned any adherence to the Constitution, such that there is no longer any rule of law in America, is the subject of future discussion.
The point at hand is the plaintiff, the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby, in response yesterday (12/27) told the Supreme Court to go to Hell. Facing a fine of $1.3 million a day, Hobby Lobby has announced it will willfully refuse to obey the Zerocare contraception mandate.
This is heroic. The HFR is proud to salute Hobby Lobby and its Founder/CEO David Green as the Hero of the Week. May this company be the first of vastly more with the courage to disobey Zero's Fascism in 2013."
Here is a way to thank Hobby Lobby.
I'm sure you've all heard that one shouldn't talk religion or politics but who started this idiotic myth in the first place? Pols? I can see why pols wouldn't want people talking religion, politics and morality etc... When someone tells me I shouldn't be talking politics or religion I tell them they are morons then ask them why the pilgrims came here in the first place. Morons who parrot that nonsense are a dime-a-dozen nowadays. Shame!
Good for Hobby Lobby. At least a few of the people who call themselves Christians have a pair. The 0 regime seems to forget the part of the Bill of Rights that says "...and the free exercize thereof." Unless it comes to Muslims, of course.
I'm tired of the fecal cliff. If the government keeps spending, borrowing and printing money, we're going down the tubes anyway.
Time to do a little shopping at Hobby Lobby! They run weekly coupons and all you have to do is pull it up on your iphone and show the lady at the checkout and you will get the discount! It is a great store with great products and they offer a peaceful shopping experience when in their store!!! Great inspirational music!
Christians need to stand with Hobby Lobby!
This is an interesting development! The 7th Circuit (Chicago) Grants Relief from Contraception Mandate 2 days after Sotouttheidiots denies Hobby Lobby's request for immediate relief.....hummmm this could get very interesting
this is all such nonsense. aside from operating a church, there is no such thng as a "christian business". does this store sell 'christian' glue ? 'christian' glitter ?? of course not. the owners, the employees, and the customers are all free to believe in whatever religion they choose or to believe in none...but a business is a business and must abide by whatever laws every other business must abide by. imagine what a tangled mess there would be in the law if we were to begin giving exemptions for all of the many myriad and varied religious beliefs in this country. laws would become meaningless.
It's THEIR company NOT the government's. In America we have different companies that offer different pay, different insurance etc.-it is a free choice to go and work somewhere! The government has NO RIGHT to insist that this private company offer what they the government deems the proper type of insurance ESPECIALLY when it involves offering medical assistance that violates their faith. This is evil and JUST the beginning. If the people don't like what Hobby Lobby offers then noone will want to work for them and they will go out of business. It IS NOT FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO DECIDE when it comes to private-get it PRIVATE business. Where is your sense of autonomy and choice? I mean isn't freedom to CHOOSE is what the country screams for????? Yet now the government has decided it will INSIST on so many things in our lives because why?? THEY know best-don't think so! Time to stand up to the government and its overreaching authority!
On a more serious note, there is no question that American businesses are under attack by this administration. Obamacare is his signature piece of legislation, that defines his presidency. Any business that objects to this communist plan, called Obamacare, will get a stake driven through its heart. Hobby Lobby is only the beginning.
The ego of this man is so gigantic, that he will not accept any opposition to his grand plan. His total fundamental transformation of America, according to his own warped ideas, is sacrosanct to him.
I would feel better about all of this, if I looked out across America, and saw people like the people here on Scoop, in every nook and cranny.
Sadly, I don't. These people you sit beside on an airplane, these people who work beside you in your office, these people who teach your children, these people you believe to be perfectly normal, elected this madman not once, but twice. Dream all you want, about saving this country from this madness, but those are the facts.
And now, they are using the sadness of what happened in the recent shooting, to try to take away our guns.
I know we talk about all these things on a daily basis, when they happen. We comment on them. We get rid of our anger. We offer solutions. It is a process of dealing with the madness. Meanwhile, they continue to implement their plan for doing away with Freedom in America. Deny it all you want, but they are well down the road, to doing just that.
Support Hobby Lobby In The Fight for Religious Liberty
Well, having read your posts and listened to Michelle Malkin, I think I have a plan.
Go shopping at Hobby Lobby, and then go get some chicken, at Chick-Fil-A.
Would that the GOP would have the guts to do the same as Hobby Lobby...Openly defy the HHS ObamaCare regulation that was NOT in the original ObamaCare legislation but written in by turncoat catholic HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius who sacrificed her faith for WHAT?
If it was called 'Mohammad's Hobby Lobby' and it refused to provide free contraception over religious convictions, we wouldn't be hearing anything about the 'religious convictions' issue right now and anybody who isn't a situational hypocrite, knows it.
Republicans belief that money will bring power, Democrats believe that power will bring money.
The Republicans lie to keep their money and the Democrats lie to keep their power.
Their are no conservative in this government. A conservative believes that no matter what skunk is in the white house, it should keep it's freaking hands off my Constitution, my guns and my kids.
Hobby Lobby, if you are waiting for some group of Catholics, Mormons or Christians to come to your aid, forget about it. You are going to hang alone, Mea Culpa, but you aren't the first Christian forsaken by the rest. These Christians have good hearts and no guts.
WordsFailMe, you couldn't be more right. I've said it many times here that christians have become lazy. We wouldn't be in this state we are in if Christians which are the majority weren't so lazy.
I worked in the federal government for many years and saw very good people become complacent and conformist and silent in their anger at inefficiency as retirement approached.
Everyone knows this. Obama is unafraid to use this.
The Churches themselves waive their First Amendment rights willingly by accepting the tax-free bribe from the government to keep their mouths shut about immoral pols. Sellouts, every one of them IMO.
I see way too much liberalism and tolerance in modern Christianity and, as for me, I have never seen the the Catholic Church stand for anything except going along to get along--Nazi Germany, Latin America, VietNam....And Protestant churches follow that model....
One's salvation is not in one's church but in one's self.
There's a Hobby Lobby about a mile or so from my house and I do shop there. They get good prices, they're a Christian based co. and closed on Sunday. I try to patronize both them and Chik Fil A for that very reason.
If they can't come to a "deal" then they should EXTEND the "Bush" tax cuts until they can meet with a REAL plan. That plan should begin with a BUDGET, a balanced one at that. It should also include EXTREME spending CUTS and that begins with doing what ever is necessary to overrule O's Executive order to give pay raises to Bidn, congress, and govt. employees. Not one of those people deserves a raise at the expense of HARD WORKING AMERICANs. Personally, in the past four years we have lost over $20,000 in annual income because the companies working for down sizing and/or going out of business. No vacation since Jan 2009 and no pay raise in the forseeable future. CUT SPENDING!
I'm not nearly as worried about the taxes as I am about the lack of any meaningful spending cuts. Without them,you can bet the spending will increase enough to use up any revenue gained by more,or NEW taxes,plus some. So far,the best they've offered for spending cuts is their offer to cut spending in TEN YEARS. Please forgive me for not trusting a Liberal as far as I can throw one. (And I'm not near as strong as I once was.)
"Capitulationists" Meaning Tax collectors for the democrats.
I am pissed off in advance, for whats going to be another loss by the Rinos in Washington, yes they are going to cave. I wouldve loved for it to come during Levin's show so he can call all of them out like he did on december 20 when the "Levin surge" stopped Boner's plan B.
Michelle is right. Pray for Hobby Lobby and support them.
Regarding congress... pray that Reid and those other obstructionists on the Democratic side suddenly get a bad case of conscience and vote in a manner that will truly help the country and not their own twisted interests.
Reid's been screwing America for-how long now? He's made,literally,a FORTUNE off us;I seriously doubt he'll develop a conscience in this life. He's going to be leaving soon anyway.
You may just get more and more companies NOT paying into either Obamacare OR the fines. Unless the IRS wants to start closing down lots of businesses and religious organizations as well as throwing all of their top executives in jail, then how will the Federal government enforce this? If people just decided not to pay, what would the IRS really do? I don't have a good answer to that, but what I do know is that Obama and his henchmen are pushing the outer edge of the envelope when it comes to civil disobedience. And this could get a lot worse, especially if the nuts in Congress decide for massive gun control laws. Try putting the owners of 300,000 million guns in jail. I don't think that will work, do you?
I just wish there was a Hobby Lobby closer to me! Maybe, they sell online?
Oh, and totally agree about the budget. The GOP will cave and I knew from day one they would.
Wanna bet that one of the MSM is going to find a former disgruntled employee to try and destroy the reputation of this fine business?
They will not go over any Cliff. The folks will see where all the spending is going and neither the establishment PUBS or LIBS want the folks to know this, This is all show and a last minute deal will be cut to "save the country". Of course the PUBS will cave all in the interest of "saving the country middle class tax increase" All BS ! This was the plan when Boehner & McConnell viste the WH after the election. Only good news is this could be the end of Boehner in January. The PUBS will lose big time ,AGAIN!
If a Supreme Court judge can not recognize when a law violates the basic beliefs of a religion, or favors one religion over another they need to be removed. Supreme Court justices can be impeached, but the gutless wonders in Congress won't act...time for a Constitutional Convention?
Let's impeach someone. How about Barry? Let the race riots begin. The cities will burn, but...
Michelle as always was on point. The only thing I will disagree with is Boehner did not have the votes last time so unless more conservatives capitulate I don't think he will have them this time.
Everyone keeps talking about how the GOP will be blamed if we go over the cliff but nobody has discussed what will happen to the GOP if they do cave on taxes. I think they will find losing the base more harmful than what any MSM organization or site can do.
Unfortunately, I cannot financially suppport Hobby Lobby because there are no stores in my neck of the woods but I am and will continue to support them in prayer.
FYI: Hobby Lobby have an online store at: http://hobbylobby.com/ you might check out.
