Stupid, this why Hobby Lobby is going out of business, stupid people with immovable ideas.

Sounds like an invitation to boycott--there is competition in near every town and city--or on-line.

I haven't been inside Hobby Lobby for years, and I plan to keep it that way.

They are free to defy the law and pay the fines. I hope they go bankrupt doing so.

"Hobby Lobby and religious book-seller Mardel Inc., which are owned by the same conservative Christian family, are suing to block part of the federal health care law that requires employee health-care plans to provide insurance coverage for the morning-after pill and similar emergency contraception pills."

I am sure the idiots would rather just fire all the famle employees when they get pregnant rather than do the moral thing.

I loved Hobby Lobby and shopped there often. No more. I stopped going there several months ago when I discovered their politics. There are other places to shop.

Never shopped there and am damn glad no of my money feed their stupidity.
One has to wonder and laugh at just how many $10,000 per day their legal fees add to the cost of being religious douche nozzles.

Well, they're under construction with a new one here, replacing the old defunct Mervyn's. Although they'll never see my face in their store, it's time to spread the word so others can join the boycott.

I had never even heard of Hobby Lobby before this news. I surely will not be seeking out their stores!
