It's Official: January 5, 2013 is SUPPORT HOBBY LOBBY DAY (Breitbart, Others Spreading the Word)
Breitbart, roundup of other sources ^ | 28 Dec 2012 | Ken Klukowski

David and Barbara Green, owners of Hibby Lobby

“We must obey God rather than men!”—Acts 5:29.

Now that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has denied Hobby Lobby’s application for an emergency injunction protecting them from Obamacare’s HHS Mandate on abortion and birth control, Hobby Lobby has decided to defy the federal government to remain true to their religious beliefs, at enormous risk and financial cost.

Hobby Lobby is wholly owned and controlled by the Green family, who are evangelical Christians. The Greens are committed to running their business in accordance with their Christian faith, believing that God wants them to conduct their professional business in accordance with the family’s understanding of the Bible. Hobby Lobby’s mission statement includes, “Honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company … consistent with Biblical principles.”

The HHS Mandate goes into effect for Hobby Lobby on Jan. 1, 2013. The Greens correctly understand that some of the drugs the HHS Mandate requires them to cover at no cost in their healthcare plans cause abortions.

Today Hobby Lobby announced that they will not comply with this mandate to become complicit in abortion, which the Greens believe ends an innocent human life. Given Hobby Lobby’s size (it has 572 stores employing more than 13,000 people), by violating the HHS Mandate, it will be subject to over $1.3 million in fines per day. That means over $40 million in fines in January alone. If their case takes another ten months to get before the Supreme Court—which would be the earliest it could get there under the normal order of business—the company would incur almost a half-billion dollars in fines. And then of course the Supreme Court would have to write an opinion in what would likely be a split decision with dissenters, which could easily take four or six months and include hundreds of millions of dollars in additional penalties.

This is civil disobedience, consistent with America’s highest traditions when moral issues are at stake. The Greens are a law-abiding family. They have no desire to defy their own government. But as the Founders launched the American Revolution because they believed the British government was violating their rights, the Greens believe that President Barack Obama and Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are commanding the Greens to sin against God, and that no government has the lawful authority to do so.

The Christian tradition of defying government commands to do something wrong goes back to the very birth of Christianity. When the apostles were ordered not to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with anyone, the Book of Acts records: “Peter and the other apostles replied: ‘We must obey God rather than men! The God of our fathers raised Jesus from the dead—whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree.’”

Eleven of the twelve apostles—including Peter—would lose their lives for the sake of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ; only the apostle John died of old age. They were determined to obey God’s will at all costs.

This issue of civil disobedience is never to be undertaken lightly. The Bible teaches Christians to submit to all legitimate governmental authority (e.g., Romans 13:1), and so a person can only disobey the government when there is no other way to obey God.

But here in America, the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land, and in its First Amendment it protects against a government establishment of an official religion and separately protects the free exercise of religion. On top of that, Congress passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) to specifically add an additional layer of protection against government actions that violate a person’s religious beliefs.

The HHS Mandate is a gross violation of the religious beliefs of the Green family. The issue before the courts here is whether the Greens religious-liberty rights include running their secular, for-profit business consistent with their religious beliefs. In other words, is religious liberty just what you do in church on a Sunday morning, or does it include what you do during the week at your job?

The Greens are now putting their fortunes on the line to do what they believe is right. The courts should side with them, affirming a broad scope of religious liberty under the Constitution and RFRA. And the Supreme Court should resolve this matter with dispatch in their favor.

Millions of Christians across the country feel exactly the same way as the Greens. The Obama administration has issued a statist command that is a declaration of war on people of faith who object to abortion, and civil disobedience could break out all over the country unless the courts set this matter right—and quickly.

SUPPORT HOBBY LOBBY DAY.

Starting Jan 1, Hobby Lobby will be liable for a $1.3 million a day fine for not complying with the HHS Anti-Conscience Mandate. They hope to get relief from the courts to stay these fines until their appeals are heard.

The court may or may not act quickly to stay the fines.

This is the risk they are taking.

Please get on and tell what you think is the neatest thing to buy.(They have 60,000 products.) Here's my choice:

It's a modest purchase, but I think it makes the cut...

Every time we go to Lufkin Texas we buy plastic flowers from Hobby Lobby for my mother’s (who introduced me to free Republic) grave. Looks lime it is time to order a big bunch my dad can place on her grave.

Pardon me for not keeping up with current events:

I'd seen the headlines regarding Hobby Lobby and this decision, but I haven't read any of the threads.

Did Sotomayor make this ruling on her own? How does that work? What is the legal process behind this decision?

I'll gladly support Hobby Lobby on January 5th (my birthday, BTW).

I'm not religious, nor can I use the new-age cop-out and say I'm "spiritual", but I stand with Christians against their PC attackers.

Anyone here ever think they would live to see the day that Fascism replaced Patriotism in this Country? These things only happened across the Ocean when I was growing up.

I certainly didn’t. I guess what makes it even worse is that a Majority of our Countrymen have decided this is the path to the future and have emboldened the forces of Evil with their sacred Vote.

Never been to the new Hobby Lobby nearby, but I will get there just like I did with C-F-L when they were under assault from the Crazy Thugs, oops I mean Liberals.

Our logic is that we gave my husband’s mother living or freshly cut flowers while she was alive and could appreciate them. Plastic flowers simply brighten up the grave site; but she is in a better place and has no more need for flowers to brighten her life.

Sorry, I am just pointing out the reality. Plastic flowers are fake (did they grow? or did they come out of a chemical plant?) symbolism over substance, no matter how its rationalized.

How long would any florist stay in business of they delivered plastic flowers? Think about it, please.

A leftist boycott of Hobby Lobby will have minimal impact on the bottom line, and will probably turn out to a lesser degree similar to Chik-Fil-A.

Holy smokes! Now if that taint some advertising. :)
Seriously. I do hope this business will not suffer the wrath of this government. In my case. I don't frequent stores other then the local pharmacy to pick up pills for my mom, grocery shop, or journey to a gas station as required. So I can't help them out by doing business with them.
And there are no HOBBY LOBBY stores in my area to begin with.
Sorry. I don't use face book. It is proving out to be one nice catch area for the Federal Government to have NSA, CIA, FBI, others, to home into for gathering info on people.
However. I am in no way offended in any way from the pings on this issue. Do keep up the good work for them as you feel moved to do so.

There’s no reason why we at FreeRepublic.com can’t call for the January 5th date ourselves! It’s nice to know that Breitbarts’ site probably made that announcement, but can make one of our own!

Here is what I plan to be sending around:

Breitbart, Freerepublic.com, certain people on Facebook, and other conservative blogs are calling for a “Support Hobby Lobby on January 5 Day.” Liberals are calling for a boycott.

If you have need of any craft or decorative items, the 5th would be a good time to visit them!

Hobby Lobby also has a Modeling/Radio Control division which is of interest to people like me.

hobbylobby.com ==> crafts
hobby-lobby-com ==> models

Purchase from either or both as your interests dictate!
