CurtisRiskey-OfficialWebCBA President Curtis Riskey stands up for the rights of Hobby Lobby and other Christian-owned businesses in a guest column written for The Gazette (Colorado Springs, Colo.).

In the column, Riskey calls on the Supreme Court to reject the “false argument” that the government has espoused in the Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby healthcare case, that “commercial businesses and their owners—simply because they make profits—cannot exercise religion under the Constitution or federal law.”

Riskey shows how Christian companies have helped to make America what it is today, citing their support of food programs, homeless outreach services, adoption support, crisis pregnancy centers and more.

Noting the “values-driven outreach” of such companies, he said that they “have demonstrated the positive economics and moral stability in a capitalistic system that is good for America.”
