Court Favors Hobby Lobby HHS Mandate Reprieve
Hobby Lobby has been fighting the HHS mandate in the courts for quite a while now. The case made national news because it seemed to be the only business of its size being forced to comply with the mandate and not granted an appeal. However, recent events have brought good news as Hobby lobby was given an appeal of its request for an exemption from the mandate based on religious convictions and, while the appeal process takes place it will not have to pay the fines imposed by not complying with the mandate. A recent article explains: “The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s “erroneous” ruling, according to the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, representing the arts-and-crafts store. The appeals court returned the case to the district court instructing it to consider whether to grant Hobby Lobby a preliminary injunction.” It’s absolutely absurd for the government to force any business owner to violate their religious convictions. Every business owner should be allowed to do business according to those convictions without fear of government sanction or penalty. We continue to stand with Hobby Lobby and hope the courts will agree with the belief that religious freedom should always trump government mandate. Click here for original article.
