Hobby Lobby CEO David Green announced that he may have to close down all 500 stores in all 41-states. Green cited religious persecution by the Obama Regime as the reason.
Green penned a personal and heartfelt letter detailing his battle with the Obama Administration and his commitment to follow God’s teachings. He’s so committed to God’s law, that after 40-years of being one of the most recognizable and well received stores in America, he will close down his business.
The move comes in the midst of a lawsuit just filed by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop the Obama mandate which would force Hobby Lobby to provide birth contraception drugs, in the form of abortion-causing drugs, which goes against Green’s Christian beliefs.
It’s a moral stand that liberals who support abortion and Planned Parenthood could not understand. It’s men like David Green who have no problem sacrificing their business to follow the way of the cross.
US Herald reports:
We’ve witnessed this before throughout human history, religious persecution by treacherous regimes, some outwardly showed their contempt for those of faith and came in the dead of night burning down synagogues and destroying churches, while other regimes quietly imposed strict restrictions and mandates, while still other governments sought to denigrate and change the culture from within their own societies, and while the degree of persecution was different, all had one thing in common, to stop and or limit religious freedom.
