HOBBY LOBBY SUES GOVERNMENT OVER CONTRACEPTION MANDATE

Another day, another lawsuit. Like the Catholic organizations that have sued the government, these folks object to being forced to make a choice between betraying their religious beliefs and staying in business:

Hobby Lobby, an arts and crafts retailer founded by evangelical Christians, sued the Obama administration on Wednesday to stop a mandate under the federal healthcare reform law to provide drugs such as the morning-after pill to employees through their health insurance.

And this is no nickel and dime outfit:

The company, which has 13,240 employees in 41 states, is based in Oklahoma City, where it began in 1972. It funds a variety of Christian charities, closes its stores on Sundays and plays inspirational Christian music in its stores.

I still think this is a sleeper issue that may have a much more profound effect on the election than most people realize. People get really touchy when the government starts meddling in their religious affairs.
