What separation of church and state?


CFN

Gazette staff
It’s rare one sees a politician use his or her religious faith as a political tool to get votes. And if you believe that, we’ve got a holy burial shroud we’d like to sell you. Act now and we’ll throw in a “Cup o’ Christ” for free!

Take my campus ... please!


CFN

Gazette staff
The Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby and Mardel stores, can sell everything from overpriced furniture to plastic Jesus night lights to bad end-times fiction, but they can’t give away a free school.

Documentary

Rod Lott

Countering contraceptives


CFN

Gazette staff
The owners of Hobby Lobby and Mardel are continuing their quest to keep the Affordable Care Act from forcing them to provide emergency contraception insurance coverage to their employees. That vow — presumably made with a fist waved righteously in the air — came after U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton on Nov. 19 denied a preliminary injunction sought by the Green family, which owns the Christian-oriented businesses.
