Hobby Lobby

Hobby Lobby received temporary relief (via the Judiciary) from the enormous fines imposed by the Obama Administration yesterday for its refusal to violate their conscience with the morning after pill requirement.

This requirement of Obamacare has been relentlessly pursued by Obama with retreats only when faced with considerable opposition. Obama however has not retreated from requiring privately held companies like Hobby Lobby to violate their conscience. With the Executive Branch determined to violate the First Amendment the last line of defense (in our governmental system at least) is the Judicial Branch. How sure a line of defense would that be ?

Not very.

Due to the number of cases in the system and potential split opinions by the Circuit Courts of Appeal this stands a good chance of going to the Supreme Court.

With this issue and other issues there is increasing pressure on that Court to at some point decide if the First Amendment's Freedom of Religion is to go the way of the First Amendment's Establishment Clause which is to say bye bye.

Step by step, year by year the erosion of constitutionally protected religious freedom continues.

At what point will Christians find themselves in a land truly hostile to our faith?
