Victory! Today, for the first time ever, the Supreme Court of the United States confirmed that profit-seeking corporations can hold a religious view under federal law. The landmark 5-4 ruling favors Christian-owned companies Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood.
In the ongoing battle for religious freedom in America, this is a huge victory for Christians who seek to steward their lives and businesses in accordance with their deeply held convictions and biblical worldview.
While the context for this ruling was set within the onerous Obamacare mandate requiring companies to offer abortion-inducing drugs in their employee health plans, the implications for this ruling have much broader religious liberty implications for you and me and the companies that we support as Faith Driven Consumers.
Let’s take a moment now to thank the brave and bold leadership of both Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood for standing on their faith and defending our constitutionally guaranteed religious liberty—pushing this case all the way to the Supreme Court.
Sign below to add your personal thank you to the letter we will deliver to Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood on behalf of Faith Driven Consumers nationwide.
Thank you for recognizing Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood who stood up for our First Amendment freedom of religious liberty. When we come together as Faith Driven Consumers and make our voices heard, we positively change a culture that’s becoming increasingly hostile to our right to hold and express biblical faith and values.

2nd Update, May 16, 2014 – Following a swift and unified outcry by Faith Driven Consumers and fair-minded Americans across the nation, SunTrust today reversed its earlier decision to drop the Benham brothers – citing respect for the fundamental constitutional rights of all Americans. Faith Driven Consumer is grateful to all who collectively raised their voices against religious viewpoint discrimination in a united call for tolerance, fairness, and equality for all Americans. This also applies to those who hold to a biblical worldview, which includes respect for life and natural marriage.
UPDATED May 16, 2014 — Following HGTV’s decision last week to cancel the Benham brothers’ television show, SunTrust Banks has taken the highly unusual step of pulling all of its listed properties with the Benham Real Estate Group—and its franchises spread across four states—apparently based on the brothers’ biblical faith and worldview. By taking this discriminatory action, SunTrust has demonstrated its intolerance toward those who hold biblically based views and chosen to exclude Faith Driven Consumers from its rainbow of diversity.
Send a message to SunTrust and other companies that it’s NOT OK to discriminate based on religion and deeply held faith convictions by signing our petition at the bottom of the page and continuing to speak out. Together, we can send a powerful message to corporate America that Christians should be welcomed and respected equally alongside other groups in America.
Dear HGTV and Scripps Networks Interactive,
I am writing regarding your network's intolerant and discriminatory decision to cancel “Flip It Forward” from HGTV's fall 2014 lineup because of the pro-life and pro-natural marriage faith-driven beliefs of stars David and Jason Benham.
The views that the Benhams' have publicly expressed reflect a biblical view of life, sexuality, marriage, and family that have stood the test of time for thousands of years and continue to be held by the majority of Americans and your viewers – including those in HGTV’s home market of Knoxville, Tennessee.
HGTV’s decision to exclude those who hold to a faith-based viewpoint held by 46 million Faith Driven Consumers who spend $1.75 trillion annually has no place in America’s inclusive rainbow of diversity.
And this decision contradicts HGTV’s stated core values of integrity and diversity, which emphasize “having a strong moral compass which points to character, honesty, ethical practice and accountability” and hold that all are included in the “broad canvas of interests, backgrounds, lifestyles and ethnicities.”
While some members of the pro-choice and LGBT communities may not agree with the biblical view on these particular issues, the notion that free-thinking Americans should be discriminated against simply for expressing a perspective that is in conflict with another is patently un-American and flies in the face of true tolerance and inclusiveness.
As a Faith Driven Consumer, I ask that you reverse your decision and reinstate "Flip It Forward” immediately out of respect for the millions of Americans who share the faith-driven worldview of its hosts.

PHIL HAS THE RIGHT TO HIS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AS DO THE ONE WHO WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN PERVERTED SEX HE HAS THE RIGHT TO SAY WHAT HE FEELS. JUST LIKE THEY HAVE THEIR RIGHTS. IT IS WRONG TO CHANGE THE DEFINITION OF MARRIAGE AND OTHER LAWS TO NORMALIZE A PERVERTED ACT. IT IS WRONG FOR EVERYONE ELSE TO BE WRONG AND THE HOMOSEXUALS TO BE RIGHT AND TO HAVE SOMEONE LOOSE THEIR JOB IS RIDICULOUS. IT SEEM THE RIGHTS OF GAYS TRUMPS EVERYONE ELSES RIGHT TO THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS WHICH IS AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION AND MR. PHIL YOU SHOULD SUE A & E FOR VIOLATING YOOUR RIGHT TO PRACTICE YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AND THEY DO MOLEST CHILDREN AND DO OTHER PERVERTED ACTS JUST AS YOU SAID. CASE IN POINT CHARLES PUGH CITY COUNCILMAN HERE IN DETROIT GROOMED A TEENAGE BOY UNTIL HE TURN 18 THEN BEGAN TO PUT HIS HAND DOWN HIS PANTS AND TRYING TO BUY HIM OFF WITH MONEY.
NO RELIGION IN THE WORLD RECOGNIZES HOMOSEXUALITY AS ANYTHING OTHER THAN A SIN JUST LIKE YOU SAID. NO OTHR COUNTRY IN THE WORLD ACCEPTS THIS AS SOME TYPE OF NORMAL BEHAVIOR OTHER THAN THE TWISTED UNITED STATES. THE SO CALLED LIBERALS HAVE ALSO TURNED OUR CHILDREN INTO PERVERTS THEY ARE ALL TRYING TO HAVE SEX WITH THE SAME SEX AND SEXTING NAKED PICTURES OF THEMSELVES. IT IS TERRIBLE I WORK IN PUBLIC HOUSING AND A 9 YEAR OLD BOY RAPED A SIX YEAR OLD GIRL IN THE ANUS BECAUSE HE WAS BEING MOLESTED HE TURN THE LITTLE GIRL OVER TO STICK IN PENIS IN HER BUTTOCKS. HOW WOULD A 9 YEAR OLD KNOW TO DO THAT IF HE WAS NOT A VICTIM HIMSELF.
DON’T BACK DOWN, DON’T APOLOGIZE HAVE SOME TYPE OF INTEGRITY. DON’T LET THE DEVIL TRICK YOU WITH MONEY THIS EVIL MUST STOP. THEY TERRORIZE YOU FOR YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS BY TAKING AWAY YOUR WATY TO MAKE A LIVING. DON’T BACK DOWN PHIL BE A MAN AND STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHT TO BE A CHRISTIAN. THEY CAN’T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU SHAME ON A & E THEY ARE NOT YOUR AUDIENCE ANYWAY. SO HOW IS THAT AFFECTING THEM THE A & E EXECUTIVES ARE DEAD WRONG. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO YOUR BELIEFS JUST AS THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO THEIR BELIEFS THEY THINK IT IS OKAY TO DO WHAT THEY ARE DOING.
I AGREE WITH YOU TOTALLY EVERYTHING YOU SAID WAS TRUE. ESPECIALLY ABOUT THE HEALTH BENEFITS THEY CAN PUT THEIR LOVER ON THEIR POLICY BUT I CAN’T PUT MY MOTHER ON MY POLICY EVEN THOUGH WE LIVE IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD. I GUESS IF WE HAD SEX WITH EACH OTHER IT WOULD BE OKAY THEN. OH’ YEAH THEY WOULD PASS LAWS TO MAKE IT LEGAL AND FORCE THE INSURANCE COMPANY TO COMPLY.
THESE PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO FORCE HOMOSEXUALITY DOWN EVERYONES THROAT. BY BLACKMAILING AND TRERRORIZING YOU. DON’T LET THEM HOLD A GUN TO YOUR HEAD PHIL.
AS A BLACK PERSON A WHITE PERSON HAS EVERY RIGHT NOT TO LIKE BLACKS JUST AS LONG AS THEY DON’T AFFECT MY INCOME OR MY RIGHT TO VOTE OR DISCRIMINATE IN HOUSING , LOANS, EVERYDAY OPERATING THAT IS THEIR RIGHT THEY DON’T HAVE TO LIVE NEAR ME EITHER I AM FINE WITH THAT. THEY DONT HAVE TO SHOP WHERE I DO OR SEND THEIR KIDS WHERE I GO TO SCHOOL I AM A VICTIM OF FORCED BUSING IN OHIO. THEY COULD HAVE JUST LEFT ME IN MY OWN NEIGHBORHOOD. THEY WERE TRYING TO FORCE WHITE PEOPLE TO MAKE THEIR CHILDREN TO GO TO SCHOOL WITH BLACKS. IT DID NOT WORK THE JUST MOVED THEIR KIDS OUT OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. THIS IS THE SAME TYPE OF THING.
PETITION TO THE A&E NETWORK DEMANDING THE IMMEDIATE REINSTATEMENT OF DUCK DYNASTY’S PHIL ROBERTSON — #ISTANDWITHPHILGOAL: 265,760 signatures
Dear A&E Network,
I am writing to you regarding your network's intolerant, discriminatory, and punitive treatment of Mr. Phil Robertson, star of A&E's #1 hit show, Duck Dynasty.
Mr. Robertson’s comments in GQ Magazine are simply reflective of a Biblical view of sexuality, marriage, and family – a view that has stood the test of time for thousands of years and continues to be held by the majority of Americans and today’s world as a whole.
Many members of the LGBT community may not agree with this view, but the notion that a free-thinking American should be discriminated against simply for expressing a perspective that is in conflict with another is patently un-American and flies in the face of true tolerance and civility. A&E's position, which in your own words is “championing” the gay and lesbian community — which I believe you have the freedom to do — excludes the views of Faith Driven Consumers and effectively censors a legitimate viewpoint held by the majority of Americans.
As a Faith Driven Consumer, I am signing this petition to demand that my views be treated with equality and respect in America’s rich rainbow of diversity.
I am asking your network to immediately reinstate Mr. Robertson to Duck Dynasty, and to formally apologize to him, his family, and the millions of viewers who tune in every week, stand by him, and share his worldview. While the LGBT community may be offended by his opposing viewpoint, your rash, discriminatory, and unfair treatment toward Mr. Robertson — a recognized symbol of the faith community — is a slap in the face to Faith Driven Consumers and everyday Americans alike.
There are 46 million Faith Driven Consumers in America today who spend 1.75 trillion dollars annually. Should you refuse to equally respect and welcome our legitimately held views, we will gladly stop watching this and all other A&E programming and turn to any reformulation of Duck Dynasty on another network – while simultaneously supporting brands that stand with the show and the Robertson family.
