Letter from Hobby Lobby Stores CEO

By David Green, the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn't much bigger than most people's living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God's word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation's largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.

We're Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I've always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that's what we've tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our
stores closed on Sundays, one of the week's biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and
our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak economy, we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government healthcare mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes
against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in fines.

Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy. Our government threatens to fine a company that's raised wages four years running. Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It's not right. I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it's the same for everybody. But that's not true. The government has exempted thousands of
companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won't exempt them for reasons of religious belief.

So, Hobby Lobby and my family are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don't like to go running into court,
but we no longer have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more important than turning a profit.

My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the government is going to make that much more difficult. The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I say that's a choice no American and no American business should have to make. The government cannot force you to
follow laws that go against your fundamental religious belief. They have exempted thousands of companies but will not excempt Christian organizations including the Catholic church.

Since you will not see this covered in any of the liberal media, pass this on to all your contacts.

Sincerely,
David Green, CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

I hope they can get the support they need and win in court, but with this administration it is going to be impossible.

If you think they will not trample your rights, you are mistaken.
The government doesn't care if you are religious.
The government doesn't care if you are not religious.
When they say jump, they expect you to ask how high?
You either jump for them, or you put your foot down and stand firm.

They are people who have nothing in the asset column of life, nothing transcendent worth working, living, and fighting for, and who believe their livelihood is to be sustained by taking the wealth of the arbitrarily defined "rich."

They then have the audacity to call others "greedy."

The one I use to shop at has steadily gone 'down hill'

workers don't want to help you find things ; nasty , irritable cashiers

I usually end up going to their competition anyway
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32538141


That's because they are the people in your area, they have gone downhill and you see the true character of your neighbors. The company itself probably has nothing to do with your town.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34679359


But a company that cares screens people better and keeps the nasties in line

this is just an indication

it use to have nice people working there

I noticed a change about 2 years ago

I am not a Christian.
I am not religious.
I do not believe in god.

I stand with Hobby Lobby.

The government has a do as we say, not as we do mentality.
If you think they will not trample your rights, you are mistaken.
The government doesn't care if you are religious.
The government doesn't care if you are not religious.
When they say jump, they expect you to ask how high?
You either jump for them, or you put your foot down and stand firm.
It is up to you. So when they tell you to go against your principles, beliefs or way of life... whatever that may be... I hope you finally put your foot down.

Thank you so much for your input !! I agree with you 1000%

I'm not a "Christian" either - I like to consider myself a Buddhist who follows Christ. LOL But I can see the big picture, and what's happened to this country in the last 50-60 years. Historically it's pretty plain to see.

This nation has lost all sense of morality - I don't give a damn WHAT religion is involved. I'm talking about what's RIGHT and what's WRONG, and how that effects our society.

Hobby Lobby has two stores in Indianapolis area and they both are very well maintained.

Hobby Lobby pays their employees around $13/hour compared to other competitors who pay their employees minimum wage.

Hobby Lobby honors God in the way they do business.

I hope they have a victory against Obamacare.

HOBBY LOBBY MAY CLOSE ITS DOORS

your God."


Letter from Hobby Lobby Stores CEO

By David Green, the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn't much bigger than most people's living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God's word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation's largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.

We're Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I've always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that's what we've tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our
stores closed on Sundays, one of the week's biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and
our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak economy, we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government healthcare mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes
against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in fines.

Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy. Our government threatens to fine a company that's raised wages four years running. Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It's not right. I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it's the same for everybody. But that's not true. The government has exempted thousands of
companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won't exempt them for reasons of religious belief.

So, Hobby Lobby and my family are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don't like to go running into court,
but we no longer have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more important than turning a profit.

My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the government is going to make that much more difficult. The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I say that's a choice no American and no American business should have to make. The government cannot force you to
follow laws that go against your fundamental religious belief. They have exempted thousands of companies but will not excempt Christian organizations including the Catholic church.

Since you will not see this covered in any of the liberal media, pass this on to all your contacts.

Sincerely,
David Green, CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

i am not very familiar with the store, but i find it despicable that our government now works hard to put business out of business. they will exempt muslims, but not christians or jews from this stupid law.

Well... that does seem to be the case.
 Quoting: Yes I Did !!!!

Lol, that's what happens when you run a modern business based on 2000 year old ideologies.
 Quoting: A Dying Breed


You realize the idiocy in that statement right? No one starts a business with the desire to have it fail right away. And the foundations of Christianity are rooted in the principles of Judaism. So what you said was that principles that have historically stood the test of time have no business in modern business. You may as well have said, "That's what you get when you try to establish a business that will last with ideologies and principles that have lasted for over 5000 years."
The constitutions of most of our States and the United States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of the press. -Thomas Jefferson in a letter to John Cartwright, June 5, 1824
