LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Hobby Lobby suit is about religious freedom

Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

The Hobby Lobby case is about more than corporate religious freedom ("Lawsuits may be the final nail in Obamacare's coffin," Web, Nov. 30). It is about the Green family, the owners of that company, wanting to practice their faith in their business. And they do. They are closed on Sundays even though this practice means they lose money. They have left a building empty rather than rent it to a renter who would use it for a purpose that violates their faith. They are going to provide insurance and have done so for years. This company is a beautiful example of how to have your faith included in your business. This case is more about the Greens' religious freedom than it is about the corporation's. Keep on fighting, Hobby Lobby.

Lincoln, Neb.
