#HobbyLobbyDay – a voice for supporters

Chris Woodward   (OneNewsNow.com) Thursday, March 27, 2014

Later this week, supporters of Hobby Lobby in its battle against the ObamaCare "birth-control mandate" will have an opportunity to make their voices heard.

FRC Action – the legislative affiliate of the Family Research Council – is promoting a "Hobby Lobby Day" campaign on March 29. FRC Action's Josh Duggar explains.

"We're going to be up on social media with all kinds of things that people can do to get involved," he tells OneNewsNow. "Number one, you can change your Facebook status. Number two, go to the Facebook event – that'll give you all the details right there. [And] number three, print off a thank you letter and take that into your local Hobby Lobby and tell them Thank you for standing for religious freedom."

When asked why the campaign was scheduled to kick off after the court hearing and not the day of the hearing, Duggar says organizers want to support the arts-and-crafts chain after the case and through all the media coverage that will follow.

"We want something to be able to take action after you hear about this case and say, Now I can go out and go shop in Hobby Lobby. I can go and stand in front of stores and speak out for my values," he answers.

"I think that Americans really around this country are telling us [they] stand for religious freedom," Duggar concludes. "That's what this country was built on, it was built on the principles of liberty."

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the case on Tuesday.
