Hobby Lobby's 'religious values' don't extend to objecting to 'family planning' and forced abortions in China.

David Green, the owner of Hobby Lobby ,
has said :
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 believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. [...] But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government health care 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.
Apparently, Green and his family run Hobby Lobby on "Christian
principles" only when it is convenient and good for the bottom
line. They send their
"Christian" money to China and its policy
one child per family and forced abortions
