“Good for Hobby Lobby,” Felicia Seaton, from Oklahoma City, said. “I love it when companies, not just individuals, stand up for what they believe in. ObamaCare is a horrible idea anyway.”
David Green, the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby, stated that they “cannot abandon their religious beliefs to comply with the mandate. Green feels he and is family is being forced to choose between the laws of the land and their beliefs.
“Just because Hobby Lobby has to offer insurance that pays for the ‘morning after pill’ doesn’t mean people will get it,” James Stands, from Bethany, said. “Hobby Lobby isn’t forcing anyone to use it. They aren’t selling it in their stores. I don’t see what the fuss is about.”
