Democrats to Christians: we don’t care about your religious beliefs

Nineteen Democratic senators have filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court siding with President Obama against the craft chain Hobby Lobby.  The Christian owners of Hobby Lobby have sued the government over the Obama Administration’s HHS Mandate which requires them to provide birth control and abortion causing drugs free of charge to their employees.  Hobby Lobby claims that this is against its owners’ religious beliefs. The case is now pending before the U. S. Supreme Court.

The senators who believe that the government can trump conscience rights are: The other senators who signed the brief are: Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), Benjamin Cardin (D-Md.), Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Tim Johnson (D-SD), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Barbara Mikulsi (D-Md.), Patty Murry (D-Wash.), Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).
