The company Hobby Lobby is synonymous with pro-life values. It’s case to stop the pro-abortion mandate in Obamacare ultimatly reached the Supreme Court after the company refused to be forced to pay for abortion-causing drugs for its employees.

Now, the founder of the Christian arts and crafts company has issued an endorsement for president. Hobby Lobby founder David Green thinks pro-life Floria Senator Marco Rubio is “prepared” to stand up for pro-life values and religious liberty as president.

“Marco Rubio has impressed us with his preparation and the way he carries himself,” Green said in a statement. “I want a president that my kids, my grandkids and my great-grandkids can emulate. In Marco Rubio, I see a man who has achieved great things from humble beginnings, but gives the glory to God, where it belongs. I see a man who is prepared to be president, and someone I would be proud for my children to emulate. I will be voting for Marco Rubio on Tuesday and I encourage my fellow Oklahomans to do the same.”

Green said he has particular concerns with Donald Trump — who has praised the Planned Parenthood abortion business despite saying he would de-fund it as president.

“Our family business that we began with $600 has quite possibly been more successful than Mr. Trump’s, but that doesn’t make either of us qualified to be president. And unlike Mr. Trump, we give all the credit to God,” Green said. “I don’t see humility in Mr. Trump, and that scares me to death.”

Hobby Lobby, headquartered in Oklahoma City, started in 1972 and now operates over 600 arts and craft stores. The company is privately held by the Green family. Hobby Lobby is noted for its high wages and its Christian values. It is closed on Sundays and states on its web site: “We believe that it is by God’s grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured. God has been faithful in the past, and we trust Him for our future.”
