Hobby Lobby decision bars government intrusion

July 3, 2014 

I'm glad that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, but I still wonder how four justices could have voted against the company.

Why is this government allowed to intrude into a business by telling them what they have to provide for their workers? If someone is willing to work for a company under that company's guidelines, why should the government make laws that go against the company's provisions or conscience?

The government is intruding more and more into the lives of Christians. Even schools are making laws that a child cannot read his Bible on his free time at school. Is that logical?

Graduations cannot be held in a church auditorium even if that auditorium is the largest place to hold one in a town. That doesn't make a graduate a Christian any more than having a ceremony in a stadium makes them a ball player.

The IRS has been targeting Christians. The ACLU and other atheistic organizations are fighting to take God and crosses out of our nation.

If they don't believe in God, why are they fighting against something that isn't?

I pray that we the people will fight for the freedom that our founders gave us before it's too late, and before Obama and his ilk totally ruin our country.
