Organizer Joe Grabowski from StandWithHobbyLobby.com is calling on “all Americans who value freedom of religion and oppose the HHS mandate’s unfair impositions” to “show their support for Hobby Lobby by shopping either at their local retail Hobby Lobby store or online.”
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee took to his Facebook page and expressed his support for the event, arguing that when it comes to defending religious liberty, “we will either stand together or fall together. I choose to stand.”
Hobby Lobby Appreciation Day, as it is affectionately being called, is a response to recent rulings by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor that denied Hobby Lobby’s request to opt out of providing abortion-inducing drugs to their roughly 13,000 employees.
By not complying with the onerous HHS mandate, Hobby Lobby may face up to $1.3 million in fines PER DAY. Regardless, Kyle Duncan, who is representing the company on behalf of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, insists Hobby Lobby will not comply with the mandate.
