    Be proactive in response to Hobby Lobby case

    It appears that many of our neighbors fail to understand the outrage over the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case. The defenders of Hobby Lobby no doubt concur with the self-righteous notion that any employer can claim an exemption to a particular federal law using religious ...
