Hobby Lobby Fined $1.3M PER DAY Beginning January 1 2013: Sotomayor Defers to Muslim Inmate’s Belief – Refuses Emergency Injunction for Christian Family

The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Hobby Lobby’s owners, the David Green Family, must pay the ObamaCare fine of $1.3 Million PER DAY, beginning January 1, 2013 if they refuse to provide the Morning After Pill (Plan B in the U.S.) and The Abortion Pill (RU-486 in Europe and Mifeprex in the U.S.). Both are considered “abortifacients.” The Green Family provides insurance to eligible employees and will meet all requirements of ObamaCare, with the exception of providing abortifacients.


After the Tenth Circuit Court decision ruled that the Green’s do not have the right to their well-known, long-held and mainstream religious belief that every human life is precious and should be protected, Hobby Lobby appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court for an emergency injunction, which Catholic U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor declared was not an emergency at all, and refused to grant temporary relief for the Company during the Appeals process.

“Yet, as Laura Ingraham pointed out, in a previous case Sotomayor ruled for a Muslim inmate who was denied Ramadan meals. In Ford v. McGinnis, 352 F.3d 582 (2d Cir. 2003), Sotomayor wrote an opinion that reversed a district court decision holding that a Muslim inmate’s First Amendment rights had not been violated because the holiday feast that he was denied was not a mandatory one in Islam. Sotomayor held that the inmate’s First Amendment’s rights were violated because the feast was subjectively important to the inmate’s practice of Islam.

The war on Christians rages on. An imprisoned Muslim can disrupt the prison order with a meal he feels he deserves, while Hobby Lobby is forced to disrupt the life of a child and be complicit in the act of murder, or pay the fine of $1.3 MILLION PER DAY. My guess is, no matter what happens, Hobby Lobby will NEVER comply with this barbaric law.

“We’re Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I’ve always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God’s laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that’s what we’ve tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week’s biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God’s grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We’ve not only added jobs in a weak economy, we’ve raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage. ” David Green  (December 1, 2012)

The David Green Family also owns Mardel Christian and Education Book store, with about 35 stores located in 7 states. Hobby Lobby operates in 41 states. Think about it: $1.3 MILLION PER DAY. See a Hobby Lobby video response here. More at Human Events. Photo Credit: Family Security Matters

  • Put all employees on part-time and thumb your noses at the feds.

  • Thanks Maggie.

    I seldom shop at Hobby Lobby but I have always respected their right to operate their business as they see fit- based upon their faith. Instead of challenging them, America should be honoring a business with ethics. I guess I shall make it a point to shop there frequently and call upon all Americans to do the same. We need to send a message to Washington that this is not okay and we aren’t going to stand for it.

  • Sotomayor’s agenda couldn’t be clearer.


    Wishing you blessings in the new year, Maggie.

    Take care.

  • We shouldn’t be surprised. I’m sure this is only the beginning. 2013 will most likely be the most destructive year in America’s history.

  • Ain’t life grand in the USSR-USA.

  • wiley

    what about our christian rights . perhaps i should sue because my rights are being violated as a christian, my civil rights are being taken away and i hearby proclaim this crime should be thourogly investigated and the proponents should be fined and equal amount as was hobby lobby

  • GoneWithTheWind

    You dare question the wise latina?

  • We The People need to sue the reprobate Usurper government 2 million a day for lying, stealing, and destroying our country America. That ugly Sotomayer fat broad should have to eat rotten pig guts, along with the rag head muslim inmate, stuff it down their guzzle, hooves and all, same for Jarrett, Hitlary, Kagan lezbos. What a rotten bunch of devil possessed greedy SOB’s. We The People know Obama was not elected by the people, it was a fixed election! BHO needs to go!

  • I can’t figure out the reasoning on some of this. I was reading last night that this same Justice ruled in favor of an injunction for the founder of Dominio’s Pizza.

    • LD, interesting. I think it’s a bias against Protestants, ambivalence for her own Catholicism (but Domino’s is devoutly Catholic – Green is Protestant) and a need to please Obama for her appointment.

  • W. C. Taqiyya

    Does this mean we will soon see our homo, pedophile loving Catholics rise up in revolt? Will we see the evangelicals, some of whom pretend to object to slightly higher taxes, marching in the streets? No, I didn’t think so. Christians are losing and will continue to lose because they are WEAK! None of them have the fortitude born of conviction. Maybe it’s a good thing, since our crops need fertilizer made from renewable resources. Dead, make believe, Christian posers will work just fine.

    • W.C. Taquiyya, many Christians are not weak in faith. It is far too broad to say “None of them have the fortitude born of conviction.” The problem are the churches with pastors who believe in the National Council of Churches. I left my church, which was conservative, because a portion of my money automatically goes to the NCC.

      Christians are not weak, but like much of humanity, they are lazy in their belief and forget that church doctrine is formed by human hands. Have you marched in the streets lately?

    • Taqi,

      You’re being a little narrow-minded. If you ask me, I’d insist ALL Americans are being weak. Do you realize how much freedom we’ve all lost the past 24 years? The past 80 years? We may be at a breaking point now, but Americans are, in general, too fat, lazy and stupid to get up and fix the problems the government is causing.

      To label just Christians as “WEAK” is weak.

  • Unfortunately so called Christians are neither hot or cold, lazy could figure into that as well. Someone asked me and my husband if we went to church, I answered: NO I am afraid the Lord would come back and catch me there!
    Too bad, too sad! These heartless bunch of moveon.org pigs are Soros Nazi followers that will find out too late the Muslims will cut their heads off with no regard to loyalty whatsoever! Their leader BTW is BHO! These Nazi’s READ their prayers handed out to them and all heaven is brass! Just better stay away from our door. . . fair warning all’s fair in love and war, huh!

  • Obamacare is government meddling. Government wage freezes made insurance so damn popular in the first place; and now that insurance itself is a primary medical care cost driver, the government piles on more mandates.

    If the government had any damn sense, it would rather suggest an end to all guarantees, and perhaps insurance, as the means to reduce medical costs and improve long-term access. But remember, we’re dealing with the government and they’re here to help [screw] us.

    America needs to stand up WITH Hobby Lobby and tell the government to go to hell 🙂

    • When would like to go? I’m ready and very happy to do so!

    • David, we’re dealing with politicians who use their laws to enslave, cripple and grab power.

  • Going to Hobby Lobby today. The government can’t grab what we don’t let them grab, we have the power through Christ to rebuke those that are born of Satan.
