Hobby Lobby Sues Gov't Over Obamacare

Folks head to Hobby Lobby for all sorts of things-- leather bound boxes, ceramic pineapples, statuettes of ducks in flight... but the morning after pill? Not so much.

And yet, the Baptist business owner and CEO of that chain of stores, David Green, has to pay for the pill for his employees under Obama's new health care act.

Now he says he's sick of it, "Our family is now being forced to choose between following the laws of the land that we love or maintaining the religious beliefs that have made our business successful."

If Hobby Lobby refuses to pay for what they call "abortion-causing drugs," the government could slap them with $1.3 million in fines for every day they refuse to comply. So the crafty store owner scrapped together a plan: he's suing the government to try and protect his religious freedom.

Ironically, Hobby Lobby's previous insurance provided the morning after pill to employees. Only when the new mandate came out, did they realize it and take it off.

Green says, "We simply cannot abandon our religious beliefs to comply with this lawsuit."

So far, it's the 28th such lawsuit filed across the country over this issue. But it's the first by a non-Catholic group and such a huge store chain. (Chick-fil-A must have missed the memo.)

As the January 1st compliance deadline looms, you have to wonder if Hobby Lobby folks will wake up to a Happy New Year or get stuck with a "morning after" hangover.
