SCOTUS Upholds First Amendment Protections

Tea Party Celebrates Hobby Lobby Victory

ATLANTA, GAToday, Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, issued the following statement following the Supreme Court of the United States’ decision to protect the First Amendment’s freedom of religion in the landmark case, Burwell v. Hobby Lobby:

“This is a victory for Americans of all faiths, not just for Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties.  The Supreme Court has affirmed that our First Amendment right to freedom of religion is more important than Obamacare and its mandates that violate our most basic personal freedoms.  This is a tremendously important decision but it doesn’t mean the battle is over.  We must continue to fight for the repeal of Obamacare and the restoration of the personal and economic freedoms it takes from all of us.”

Tea Party Patriots is a national grassroots coalition with more than 3,400 locally organized chapters and more than 15 million supporters nationwide. Tea Party Patriots is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to advancing personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. Visit Tea Party Patriots online at
