This Thanksgiving week we wanted to turn your attention to some positive news. Specifically, the CEO for Hobby Lobby (5), Steve Green, told Fox Business that his company was still Christian-based – and that wasn’t going to change:
“We value family, and of the things that we tell our co-managers as we kind of get them up to speed is that their family is more important than this business, and they need to be sure to take of their family first and then Hobby Lobby second.”
Hobby Lobby’s Christian values have been front and center of the company’s success since day one, and at no point more so than when it won the first U.S. Supreme Court case shooting down part of the Obama administration’s contraception/abortifacient/sterilization mandate. This is the same mandate which went back to the Supreme Court because the administration wanted to force Catholic nuns to be involved in birth control.
Since Chick-fil-A’s* decision is still fresh in our minds, we wanted to give you some optimism going into Thanksgiving. We still live in the greatest country in the world, and your values are respected by some companies. Hobby Lobby is a shining example of American service, business, and values. We urge you to visit their locations in-person or online as you begin your Christmas shopping and send Green a note of thanks for continuing to show your values.
In short, use your 2ndVote dollars to show how much you appreciate their unwavering support for your values.
