Celebrate freedom & SCOTUS decision
Without question, the big news of the week is the Supreme Court’s decision on the Hobby Lobby case. But, we need to realize the story is not complete. There are many matters that the decision did not cover, and we will be reporting on those important elements in the Biblical Recorder and on BRnow.org. Stay tuned!
The liberal spin on the court’s Hobby Lobby decision has been shamelessly exploitive and highly deceitful. To hear the talk from the White House and political spin machines, you would think the court’s decision means Hobby Lobby hates women and wants to dominate their health care decisions. I don’t remember a recent issue that’s been more shamelessly propagandized like this one.
There are two facts you are not likely hearing: Hobby Lobby doesn’t have the power to do what some say they are (or will be) doing. Second, if they did have the power, they would not want to. The company’s lawyer says the owners would love nothing more than to stay out of women’s birth control decisions. There are scores of facts that are being ignored, including Hobby Lobby’s generous personnel policies, and there are scores of fairy tales that are being shouted from the political rooftops.
Be alert! Deny the deceit, and discover the truth.
