Liberal's vitriolic hatred vomits on social media

Members of Facebook and other social media are being bombarded today by posts both damning and threatening over the Supreme Court decision in favor of religious freedom. The court ruled by only 5-4 that businesses like Hobby Lobby are not required to obey the ObamaCare law mandates on the grounds of their religious beliefs. Hobby Lobby objected stridently when a mandate was added to the ObamaCare law requiring businesses to provide women, not only with contraception, but with abortion medication like the “morning after” pill. The Christian owners of Hobby Lobby refused to compromise their faith in adding abortion pills to their healthcare coverage.

Leftists on social media erupted en masse, flooding the sites with some posts disguised to look like the official Supreme Court page, calling the law a barbaric denial of healthcare and denying contraception for women. One called the law “Scalia Sharia,” likening the ruling to Islamic Sharia Law in which women are stoned to death for adultery even if they had been raped, unless they can produce four male eye witnesses to testify on their behalf. Liberals posted distortions that Hobby Lobby now denies women contraception claiming that Christians want to force America back to the nineteen fifties in medicine and allow women to die in childbirth.

Joe Concha of Mediaite described some of the vitriol being spewed against the court and Christians. Some liberals are calling for Hobby Lobby stores to be burned down for denying them their freedom. Concha points out that no one on the religious right called for gay bars to be burned down when the court ruled against them on D.O.M.A. last year.

Concha also elaborated on the Hobby Lobby’s objection and the court’s ruling, revealing that Hobby Lobby does offer sixteen different contraceptives in its healthcare and only objects to the four abortion pills ObamaCare mandated. This did not deter any slandering of the company, cries of having their freedom taken away, or tone down the threats. Rightwing critics condemned the lies, as well as the threats, pointing out that Hobby Lobby does not restrict anyone from acquiring any healthcare coverage they want.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana tweeted a joke;

@Barack Obama now googling “Can an Executive Order override Supreme Court?” #HobbyLobby

Adolph Obama’s lies get bigger and the left gets shriller
