The Affordable Care Act's mandated birth control coverage has some corporations fighting for their religious freedom. (5:00)

NATION AS A DEEPLYRELIGE-- RELIGIOUS MAN I

KNOW THE DEVIL TAKES MANYMORES BUT MOSTLY BARACK

OBAMA.

AND THERE IS YET ANOTHERSERIOUS SIDE EFFECT OF

BARACKOCARE, LOSS OFRELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

>> ONE KEY CONCERN IS THEHHS CONTRACEPTION PAN DATE

WHICH WILL REQUIRE EMPLOYERSTO MAKE SURE EMPLOYEES HAVE

ACCESS TO HEALTH INSURANCECOVERAGE THAT PROVIDES COST

FREE CONTRACEPTION.

>> OPPONENTS OF THE PAN DATESAY IT'S GOING TO MAKE

BUSINESS OWNERS VIOLATETHEIR RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS

BY FORCING THEM TO PROVIDEINSURANCE COVERAGE FOR

EMPLOYEES THAT INCLUDES ALLTYPES OF BIRTH CONTROL.

>> Stephen: YUP, MANDATEDBIRTH CONTROL.

JUST THE FIRST STEP INOBAMA'S PLAN TO-- PLAN TO

GET THE WHOLE COUNTRY HOOKEDON THE PILL.

I THINK THEY ARE SLIPPINGINTO THE DRINKING WATER

ALREADY BECAUSE I KNOW IHAVE BEEN HAVING SOME VERY

LIGHT PERIODS AM I'M NOTSAYING NOTHING, BUT PRETTY

LIGHT.

NOW SOME PEOPLE, SOME PEOPLEARE DEMANDING THEIR RIGHTS

BUT SOME LEGAL PERSONSDIDN'T HAVE-- DON'T HAVE

MOUTHS.

THEY'RE CALLED CORPORATIONS.

AND THEIR CRUSADE BRINGS USTO TONIGHT'S WORD.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)IN GOD WE TRUST.

FOLKS, ONE OF THE VICTIMS OFMANDATED CONTRACEPTION IS

HOBBY LOBBY WITH.

OVER 500 RETAIL LOCATIONSTHEY ARE THE NATION'S

LARGEST CRAFT SUPPLYBUSINESS.

NOW FOLKS, THE OWNERS, THEOWNERS OF HOBBY LOBBY, THE

GREEN FAMILY, ARE DEVOUTCHRISTIANS WHO BELIEVE THAT

LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION.

AND COINCIDENTALLY THEIRBUSINESS, HOBBY LOBBY, ALSO

BELIEVES LIFE BEGINS ATCONCEPTION.

AND WHILE, WHILE HOBBY LOBBYIS HAPPY TO SELL RICK RACK

AND GLITTER GLUE ONE THINGIS NOT FOR SALE.

IT'S VALUE.

SO HOBBY LOBBY'S LAWYERSHOBBY LOBBIES THE COURT FOR

A RELIGIOUS EXCEPTION-- EXEMPTION FOR

MANDATED CONTRACEPTIONARGUING THE CORPORATION

ITSELF IS ENTITLED TO FREEEXERCISE OF RELIGION.

OF COURSE RULINGS LIKECITIZENS UNITED HAVE

ESTABLISHED THATCORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE WITH

THE FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TOFREEDOM OF SPEECH.

SO WHY NOT RELIGION.

AND ALREADY A FEDERALAPPEALS COURT AGREED RULING

CORPORATIONS CAN BE PERSONS,EXERCISING RELIGION.

THAT'S RIGHT.

A CORPORATION CAN HAVERELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

YOU KNOW WHAT, FOLKS-- (LAUGHTER)

FOLKS-- THAT FEELS RIGHT,DOESN'T IT?

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: YES.

YES.

THAT FEELS RIGHT TOEVERYBODY.

BECAUSE CORPORATIONSSTRUGGLE WITH THE SAME

EXISTENTIAL QUESTIONS WE ALLDO.

AND AMERICA WAS FOUNDED,THIS COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON

THE IDEALS OF RELIGIOUSLIBERTY FOR ALL PEOPLE, BE

THEY CHRISTIAN, JEWISH,BUDDHIST OR LIMITED

LIABILITY FORMED UNDERSUBCHAPTER S OF THE UNITED

STATES TAX CODE.

THEREFORE-- THEREFORE THECORPORATE PERSON KNOWN AS

HOBBY LOBBY SHOULD NOT BEFORCED TO PROVIDE

CONTRACEPTION BECAUSE IT ISACCEPTED JESUS INTO ITS

HEARTS AND HAS BEEN SAVED.

AND FOLKS-- THERE ARE SOMANY OTHER CORPORATIONS WHO

PRACTICE RELIGION.

I MEAN OFF THE TOP OF MYHEAD THERE IS QUAKER OATS,

THERE IS CHRIST-LER.

THERE IS CHURCH'S CHICKENAND VIRGIN, WHICH OF COURSE

WORSHIPS A BIZARRE GOATHEADED GOD.

SO I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE ITIS TIME WE ACKNOWLEDGED THE

DEEP FAITH HELD BY ALL OFOUR CORPORATE CITIZEN THOSE

MATTER WHAT FAITH THEY ARE.

HINDUS BELIEVE INREINCARNATION SO WHY SHOULD

A HINDU CORPORATION BEFORCED TO FOLLOW WORKPLACE

SAFETY LAWS.

IF THERE'S AN ACCIDENT, THEWORKER WILL JUST COME BACK

AS AN ANT.

AND-- (LAUGHTER)

REMEMBER, BUDDHISTS REJECTTHE MATERIAL WORLD.

WHY SHOULD A BUDDHISTCORPORATION BE FORCED TO PAY

ANYONE MONEY.

AND OUT OF RESPECT FOR THEIRDEEPLY HELD BELIEFS, WE

ALLOW NATIVE AMERICANS TOLEGALLY DROP PEYOTE,

THEREFORE WE SHOULD A LACOKE INDUSTRIES TO LEGALLY

DROP ACID IN OUR RIVERS.

NOW REMEMBER, REMEMBER,FOLKS, THE PURPOSE OF

RELIGION IS TO ANSWER THEULTIMATE QUESTION, ARE WE IN

CONTROL OR IS THERE SOMEGREATER FORCE PULLING THE

STRINGS.

AND IF THE COURTS RULE THATCORPORATIONS HAVE THE SAME

RELIGIOUS RIGHTS THAT WEHUMANS DO, I THINK WE'LL

HAVE OUR ANSWER.

AND THAT'S THE WORD.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
