Hobby Lobby Hobbyists Lobby To Pursue Hobbies Elsewhere

After the Supreme Court ruled on Monday that Hobby Lobby should not be required to provide certain forms of contraception to its employees, it was only a matter of time before people took to the company's Facebook page to express outrage.

There were those calling for a Hobby Lobby boycott.

And those who promised their future business to Michaels Stores, one of Hobby Lobby's competitors.

There were those who took issue with the religious ramifications of the decision.

And those who posed solid rhetorical questions.

And legitimately funny suggestions.

But not everyone disapproved of the decision.

As for Hobby Lobby, the company responded to critics and supporters alike.

Hobby Lobby didn't respond to The Huffington Post's request for comment on the Facebook posts, but a spokesperson did provide this statement from Hobby Lobby Co-founder Barbara Green:

“Our family is overjoyed by the Supreme Court’s decision. Today the nation’s highest court has re-affirmed the vital importance of religious liberty as one of our country’s founding principles. The Court’s decision is a victory, not just for our family business, but for all who seek to live out their faith. We are grateful to God and to those who have supported us on this difficult journey.”
