Russell D. Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Committee, gives an award to the Green family during a report June 11 at the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting at the Baltimore Convention Center. The family, founders of the crafts chain Hobby Lobby, is fighting in court the Obama administration's abortion/contraception mandate requiring employers to provide health insurance covering medical technologies that can cause the death of an unborn child. The Supreme Court is scheduled to rule on their case later this month. The Green family "believe[s] that every human life from the moment of conception is sacred, and they believe that the government is not the Lord of their consciences," Moore said. Messengers gave the Greens a standing ovation and prayed for the Supreme Court's decision. By Van Payne
