On Monday afternoon, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following statement in reaction to the Supreme Court's 5-4 decision in the Hobby Lobby case:
"The Supreme Court's decision in the Hobby Lobby case was a great victory for the First Amendment and religious freedom. In preserving the nation's first freedom, the Court rejected the government imposing its will and agenda on people of faith who run companies and organizations. It also rejected the government's heavy handed attempt to punish these corporations and citizens through financially ruinous faith fines the government sought to impose on people who choose not to violate their deeply held religious beliefs. We are confident that this decision helps pave the way for the preservation of the Media Research Center's (MRC) First Amendment rights in our religious freedom case now pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia."
