Let Hobby Lobby go about its business

Let Hobby Lobby go about its business

The U.S. Constitution states,"Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."

If Hobby Lobby chooses to follow Biblical principles as guidelines for the operation of their business, they should be able to do so. They should not be fined or forced to close their doors. They are protected by our constitution.

Hobby Lobby is a well established business and has thousands of employees. This is good for our economy.

A large number of Hobby Lobby customers are crafters. They in turn, participate in craft fairs and therefore, generate another business.

The common sense solution for Hobby Lobby is to leave them alone and let them continue to "do business as usual."
