The founders of Hobby Lobby, David and Barbara Green, were the recipients of the Daniel Award from Arizona Christian University at a banquet in Scottsdale Thursday night. Mr. Green told the audience that God called upon his family to take a stand against the government’s mandate to provide life-terminating drugs and devices in their company’s health insurance plan.
And also God calls us to take a stand. We have to take a stand. And that’s what happened when the government asked us to take life. We believe, without question, that life begins at conception.
The Greens’ request for an injunction was denied by several courts. Then they went to the Tenth Circuit Court and asked all the judges to review their case.

We asked the Tenth Circuit to have all the judges look at it, which rarely, rarely ever happens. Because of the prayers, they looked at it, they saw it and they gave us the injunction. The injunction happened on Friday and we would’ve had to start paying thus fine on the following Monday morning. So God came through at the very last minute.
