"Plaintiffs have not cited, and the court has not found, any case concluding that secular, for-profit corporations such as Hobby Lobby and Mardel have a constitutional right to the free exercise of religion," the ruling said.

To me, this statement seems absurd in the extreme.

Drop your employee’s insurance and pay the fine. It’s cheaper. Tell your employees that you’re sorry but ‘talk to the 0bama.’

I don’t know why this is so hard, the answer is simple, the STate using the Kelo decision as legal grounds, should immediately begin seizing the Homes of Federal Employees, starting with all Federal Employees classified as Public Servants and use the proceeds to pay for the Requirements imposed on their citizens by Obamacare. definitely satisfies the economic need requirement of Kelo.

If I were CEO of Hobby Lobby I would issue an internal order to HR, the law department, and the person responsible for negotiating emplyoee health insurance to ignore this Judge and Obama. See ya in court again.

The United States has become a very dark and sinister place.

A case? Why not try reading the Constitution?

Also - under this logic - it would seem that "a secular, for profit corporation" that is a media / press organization does not have a constitutional right to freedom of the press and could have its contents controlled by the government?

A moral, legal, and constitutional abomination.

Better fight, folks. While you still can.

The judge was appointed by Bush 43, BTW. Thanks, Dubya.

The answer is to stop offering health-care insurance the employees. Let the employees find their own insurance.

Tyndale House Publishers this past Friday actually won a temporary injunction against HHS because it also opposed paying for the same pills as Hobby Lobby.

Really feel bad for the Hobby Lobby company. They are a great store. This is beyond disgraceful to have the Obama government positioning their power into a business while violating individuals religious freedoms. This unlawfulness will not continue much longer by those just turning away. This is a dictator rule, no doubt. Everywhere I go, I often overhear people saying the same. And, now we have state’s governors, state attorney generals debating whether or not to oppose the new mandates for the health care law. Maybe wise to just refuse to implement/set up your own in your state, governors. Been praying Gov. Scott would hold firm. Now, I hear some republicans in the Florida state legislature are rethinking their positions as well. When things collapse, the dems are finished forever.

It sure would be nice if Alaska became an independent state and all these christian business that mostly sell on the internet moved there. A refugee state in effect against Obamcare.

Obama is in office, so expect to see more of this stuff in the coming four years. Religious freedom is ok as long as it doesn’t interfere with the state religion - The Church of Liberalism.

appeal. oklahoma taxpayers also need to see if they can get rid of the judge through legal means. hobby lobby can refuse to allow the inurance company to have the provision paid for.

america is still a great nation it just has to get back to the basics of judeo-christian values.
