TULSA, Okla. (AP) - An attorney for the Hobby Lobby crafts store chain says the company isn’t being hypocritical when it opts out of the new health care law while at the same time aiming to influence the public school system with a Bible-based curriculum.

The Oklahoma-based company won a victory Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court narrowly ruled that some corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.

Hobby Lobby has also been reportedly working to add the Bible to public high schools nationwide.

Hobby Lobby attorney Mark Rienzi said during a teleconference Monday that the company is free to “go out into the public square and argue for what they want.”
