Update on the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court Case

Download Audio MP3 | 00:28:00

We’re interrupting our series with Steven Ertelt to give you an update on the Supreme Court case, Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores.

Notre Dame Law grad John Gerardi and Jonathan Keller from California Family Council explain the case and what happened during the oral arguments.

Questions:

  1. Where are we in this case right now and how did we wind up here?
  2. One of the issues in this case is whether or not a corporation should be considered a “person.” Many people think it’s crazy to call a corporation a person, that it just protects the rich and helps them get richer. What are your views on that?
  3. What were some of the highlights from the oral arguments?
  4. Is this about religious freedom or is it about the rights of the poor employees against their corporate employer?
  5. How do you think the court will rule and why?
  6. Where does the religious freedom road lead if Hobby Lobby loses this case?

Jojo Ruba

Josh concludes his interview with Jojo Ruba, former staff member of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform and Executive Director of Faith Beyond Belief.

After talking about the mission of Faith Beyond Belief, Josh asks a follow-up question from the previous episode, where Jojo made a comment about pro-lifers needing to be “more offensive.” Josh asks, “How can you tell whether you should be more offensive or less offensive when talking to pro-choice people?”

Afterwards Jojo and Josh answer a listener mail question from Mark in Hawaii:

I’m a new listener, and I’m trying to figure out exactly what your views are regarding human development and when a person comes into being and should be granted human rights. Most importantly and perhaps most difficult, when do you believe God endues a body/soul carrier with a soul in human fetal development and what are your reasons for that?

The episode includes a discussion of the Equal Rights Argument that Josh and the Justice For All team have been using lately, and what Jojo and Josh think about animal rights.

Jojo Ruba Takes the Life Report Questionnaire

Jojo RubaJosh interviews Jojo Ruba, former staff member of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform and Executive Director of Faith Beyond Belief.

After talking about the pro-life presentations that have been protested and censored by Canadian pro-choice activists, Jojo answers the 9-question Life Report Questionnaire that has been answered by many other pro-life leaders in the past. I altered it a little for this interview, taking out the questions on stem cell research and euthanasia to focus more on the graphic pictures debate and how pro-lifers should treat pro-choice people.

I love this quote from Jojo, in regards to what he does when he’s talking to a pro-choice person: “I say a little prayer, and the prayer is this: ‘Father, show me how I can love this person today.’”
