A photo of Holly Fisher celebrating Hobby Lobby's Supreme Court victory posted on Twitter was supposed to be lighthearted. But when the Christian mother of three from Charleston, West Virginia, realized she was under attack from liberals, she followed it up with a photo of herself standing with a gun and a Bible on Independence Day — that's when all hell broke loose.
"Attention liberals: do not look at this picture. Your head will most likely explode," Fisher tweeted on July 1 posing in a pro-life T-shirt with a Chick-fil-A cup in front of a Hobby Lobby store.
The tweet came just a day after the Supreme Court had struck down the HHS' mandate when it ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods Specialties, stating that corporations are not required to cover, under their healthcare plans, birth control methods that can lead to the early termination of a pregnancy. more >>
A Kentucky woman has filed a lawsuit against U.S. Bank, claiming that the company fired her for saying "Have a blessed day."
Polly Neace told Fox News on Sunday that she picked up the phrase after somebody told it to her "and I thought, 'what a wonderful thing to say to somebody.' In my opinion, I don't think there's any better day to have than a blessed day. So I started telling all of the customers [that]."
Neace claimed that several years ago she was confronted by the company and "was told that I was not allowed to tell customers to have a blessed day anymore — that there had been several complaints." more >>

"Not today, Satan. Not today," said the drag queen after telling the Christian group that they were being hypocritical in their application of the Bible. A YouTube video of the encounter posted a week ago has been viewed nearly 1.5 million times.
"Actually, if they followed all the teachings of this book (the Bible) that they use to hate, they themselves are sinners. They are wearing cotton-poly blend — that is an abomination," argued the drag queen pointing to Levitical law in the Old Testament. more >>
A few years ago pastor Farris Wilks of Cisco, Texas, and his brother, Dan, became billionaires from the sale of their hydraulic fracturing business called Frac Tech. Now they are "using the riches that the Lord has blessed" them with, according to CBN, to bring back the Bible in schools and other conservative causes.

The city council in Greenville, South Carolina, has agreed to mount a plaque that reads "In God We Trust" on its chamber walls, despite possible lawsuits over the religious statement.
The city council voted unanimously to display the religious message on the walls of its Council Chambers, located at County Square. City councilman Fred Payne told The Greenville News that he proposed the idea of having the words inscribed in their chamber after receiving an email from In God We Trust America, an organization that seeks to have local governments across the country display the message on their chamber walls.
According to the In God We Trust America website, the mission statement of the nonprofit organization is to "[promote] patriotism by encouraging elected officials to legally display our national motto 'In God We Trust' in every city and county chamber in America, keep God's name in America and show a commitment to the values our country was founded upon." more >>
