By a 5-4 ruling yesterday, the Supreme Court said that corporations like Hobby Lobby could not be forced to violate their religious convictions and pay for birth control.

It means that profit-seeking businesses controlled (by just a few people) can also hold and practice religious views.

Hobby Lobby owners David and Barbara Green said, “The Supreme Court reaffirmed what our family has always believed, that America is a country founded on and sustained by religious liberty. It’s been a long journey, but an important one for our family all those who wish to be guided in all areas of life, including their businesses, by faith and conscience.

Yesterday’s decision was a good first step. Now it’s time to take the next one: Repeal Obamacare altogether.
