Hobby Lobby: The First Martyr Under Obamacare?
What Roe v. Wade did to this country by judicial fiat in permitting abortion-on-demand is not even in the same category as requiring private citizens to violate their consciences and their most deeply held religious convictions by personally participating in acts they find immoral and unconscionable. If government regulations for running a business are such that Christians cannot own and operate a business without violating their religious beliefs, then Christians will be put out of business in this nation. I can think of little more that would change the fabric of our country than for Christians to be taken out of business unless they agree to compromise the things they hold most sacred. As blogger Denny Burk noted last week, "If this stands, what will keep this from happening to you?" If nationalized health care is the battle, then it is the soul of our freedom that constitutes the war.
