Hobby Lobby and the Green family receive outpouring of support in Supreme Court Obamacare case

HobbyLobby1Amicus Briefs in Support of Religious Liberty Outnumber Government 2-1

Washington, D.C. – When the clock struck midnight, 81 briefs flooded in the U.S. Supreme Court, 56 supporting Hobby Lobby and outnumbering the Government’s position 2-1.  In one of the largest amicus brief filings in Supreme Court history, a diverse coalition of bipartisan legislators, religious leaders, legal scholars and States stood united in defending David and Barbara Green and their family business Hobby Lobby from being forced to violate their deeply held religious beliefs or pay severe fines.

For all the details on the case and the extensive list of filings, please go to the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, who is representing Hobby Lobby in this critically important case.  http://www.becketfund.org/hobbylobbyamicus/
