Project 21’s LeBon Dispels Hobby Lobby Case Misconceptions

Cherylyn Harley LeBon, co-chairman of the National Center’s Project 21 black leadership network, schooled ardently liberal host Thom Hartmann on the misinformation surrounding Hobby Lobby’s case against ObamaCare’s contraceptive mandate during the 3/20/14 edition of “The Big Picture” on the RT network.

In the one-on-one discussion, Cherylyn noted that the company — which is privately-owned by a devoutly religious family — does not oppose the use of 16 of 20 FDA-approved contraceptives while only “morally object[ing] to four.”

Cherylyn explained that “the [liberal] narrative is wrong” when it’s used to exemplify the liberal “war on women” meme.  She pointed out that companies such as Starbucks are not challenged for their positions when they promoting same-sex marriage (despite its divisive nature) and that companies are also not required to arm their employees because of the Second Amendment.
