Fiery MUST-SEE Debate: Beckel Slams 'Obscene' Hobby Lobby Ruling
Bob Beckel went off on today's Supreme Court ruling in the Hobby Lobby case against the ObamaCare mandate on contraception coverage. The company argued it should not have to provide that coverage to employees on religious grounds and the court agreed in a 5-4 decision.
The ruling is being hailed by proponents of religious freedom, but The Five co-host and today's #oneluckyguy on Outnumbered doesn't see it that way. He argued that the "absurd, obscene" ruling is an infringement on the rights of Hobby Lobby's 13,000 employees.
He said the owners of the company "are imposing their views on 13,000 people that they should keep in church.
"I happen to be a Christian and a very strong one. The idea that I would impose my values on 13,000 people is obscene, absurd and unconstitutional and the court should be bludgeoned for it," said Beckel, questioning why people are calling this is a win for women.
He got quite a bit of pushback from Sandra Smith, Andrea Tantaros, Harris Faulkner and Jedediah Bila.
