On Tuesday, March 25, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in two landmark cases that have everything to do with the kind of country we will leave our children and grandchildren. In both Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp v. Seblieus, the Supreme Court will look at whether businesses are entitled to the fundamental right of religious liberty.

 

Four years ago, President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act. It’s doubtful any other piece of legislation has done as much harm to our Constitution as much as Obamacare has.  Under one controversial provision, businesses are required to offer health insurance plans that violate their religious beliefs. The families that own Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods, however, have a First Amendment right to be able to live according to their deeply-held religious beliefs. On Tuesday, Tea Party Patriots will be standing with them, arguing the same thing.

 

We will stand for the First Amendment right of freedom of religion, and protest on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., beginning 9:00 a.m., until 2:00 p.m. At the conclusion of oral arguments, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin will hold a press conference, along with other supporters of the First Amendment. We invite you to come and stand with us as we remind all Americans that no part of the First Amendment should be sacrificed or taken for granted. We will be holding signs that support the importance of religious freedom, including: Freedom for All; My Faith, My Business; and First Amendment for All.

 

It’s a sad day anytime our government tries to argue the legality of infringing on First Amendment rights. Forcing business owners to violate their religious convictions is wrong and unconstitutional. Much is at stake. If you can join us, please bring your freedom-supporting sign to the Supreme Court steps. If you are not available to join in person, please take part in the conversation on social media using the hashtags #HobbyLobby and #ReligiousFreedom on Twitter and at www.facebook.com/teapartypatriots.  For more information on this rally at the Supreme Court, visit our website at http://www.teapartypatriots.org/events/freedom-of-choice-rally/.
