The President has plenty of powers, but choosing who can exercise their faith isn't one of them! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The Supreme Court's term may be over, but the celebration over its last ruling isn't! Two years after keeping ObamaCare intact, justices toppled the most outrageous piece ever implemented: the HHS mandate. As Christians, the owners of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood couldn't imagine being ordered to pay for drugs that could end a pregnancy. And by a 5-4 decision, the justices agreed they shouldn't have to. Businesses, the Court ruled, should be able to operate according to their values -- not the government's. While liberals complain that this is a "war on women," the majority of women never supported the mandate in the first place! Americans everywhere are indebted Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood for being modern-day Daniels. They stared down the lions of intolerance and won a victory for the whole nation.
