Obama Administration: We Can and Will Force Christians to Act Against Their Faith

(CNSNews.com) – In a legal argument formally presented in federal court in the case of Hobby Lobby v. Kathleen Sebelius, the Obama administration is claiming that the First Amendment—which expressly denies the government the authority to prohibit the “free exercise” of religion—nonetheless allows it to force Christians to directly violate their religious beliefs even on a matter that involves the life and death of innocent human beings.

Because federal judges—including Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor—have refused to grant an injunction protecting the owners of Hobby Lobby from being forced to act against their Christian faith, those owners will be subject to federal fines of up to $1.3 million per day starting Tuesday for refusing to include abortion-inducing drugs in their employee health plan.

    Including “morning after” pills in a health care plan has nothing to do with restricting the exercise of religion. Providing employee health care plans is part of doing business, not an expression of faith. Should owners of a business be able to prevent employees unable to afford a child, from choosing to abort? If it’s against your religious views, don’t take the pills!

    The owners of Hobby Club can still worship exactly as they choose. They just don’t get to force all employees to conform to THEIR way of worshiping.

      Tell me where it says in the Constitution that employers must commit sin by funding the killing of Children. To be a accomplice to murder. See, I dont blame you, I blame the ignorance of many people when it comes to any people of faith… you just are not educated in our faith. You should take some time and learn about it… then, you may then understand our problem. You or anyone else has no right to tell people how to practice their faith. The Constitution says you are wrong also..

      Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

      Please tell me how not having your abortion pill payed for-by your boss-is equal to conforming to a way of worship. Hobby Lobby is not trying to get rid of the morning after pill, just trying to get their conscience clear. It’s not trying to make all it’s employees join their beliefs or faith or worship, It’s just trying to to be able to uphold their own religious freedoms. If an employee is unable to afford a child, go buy your own pills, or better yet condoms or whatever birth control you choose. Why should the employer have to directly pay for something they believe is killing of innocent children?

      Also, in one breath you say it has nothing to do with…religion, and then you say they’re trying to force employees to conform to their way of worship…. so is it about religious beliefs or isn’t it? The argument is ridiculous. A better statement would be: If it’s NOT against your religious views, go buy your own pills!

        One may note with a certain cocked eyebrow that Hobby Lobby has no objection to paying for Viagra for their male employees who might need it. They just don’t believe in equal support for the women who might have to deal with the “after-effects” of dealing with men using Viagra. hmmm…
