Friends of Hobby Lobby sign Supreme Court Brief as the Case will soon be tried!
Please take the time to read the brief below and begin including the
plaintiffs, lawyers and justices involved in these cases in your prayers.
I have been off Causes for a while swallowing my disappointment at all their changes for the worse but I will use it for a time to get this important message out. We are about to lose AMERICA to Communism and we must wake up and Fight the battle for our Christian Heritage in America. More to come on the EU making quick already disintegrating the Christian Roots of Europe!

This week the Manhattan Declaration was honored to sign on to an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief submitted to the Supreme Court for consideration in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods cases. These cases, to be argued in March, will determine whether the rights of religious freedom and conscience extend to Christian business owners. It is even possible the Court will use the case to go further, clearing the rubble of decades of muddled free exercise jurisprudence to establish a new, clear set of principles in line with the First Amendment.
“demonstrates, historically and theologically, that requiring
a Protestant Christian to choose between violating the Government’s regulations or violating his sincerely held religious beliefs substantially burdens his exercise of religion in violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the First Amendment.”
