Today’s the day in which the United States Supreme Court will hear arguments in Sibelius vs Hobby Lobby.
The question at hand is not whether the HHS Mandate is Constitutional. The question which is being brought before the Court is whether or not the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 protects Hobby Lobby against the fines and penalties of the HHS Mandate.
The Obama Administration has argued in previous court appearances that the First Amendment only applies to formal worship activities and other direct actions of federally recognized churches, within the confines of their church proper. This narrow interpretation of the First Amendment would end freedom of religion in this country. In fact, it is very similar to the kind and type of religious freedom that totalitarian states operating under communism grant.
So much is at stake with this case.
Please pray that the Supreme Court will preserve the religious liberties and religious exemptions that Americans have long enjoyed.
