IN THE PUBLIC ARENA
This week, Liberty Institute filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in support of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties in their landmark religious freedom cases against Obama’s controversial HHS Mandate.
The case, Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. v. Sebelius, is scheduled for oral arguments on March 25. This is a critical, high profile case that will determine whether for profit, faith-based businesses are protected by the Religion Clauses of the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and can operate without fear of governmental control and oversight of their religious exercise.

(Several of Hobby Lobby’s different holiday message ads can be seen here). The Fredericksburg article claimed that three of the historical declarations made in the ad were inaccurate, but historical documentation demonstrates that it is the critics and not Hobby Lobby who were errant in their claims.|
