Thousands of people across the nation showed up to shop at Hobby Lobby stores today in a show of support.
In Colorado Springs they took it a step further and showed their appreciation for the store outside of building with signs and songs.
Hobby Lobby's owner, David Green, says he's against President Obama's healthcare mandate which forces companies to cover things like contraception.
Those in the crowd today say they're supporting Green because he's standing up for his religious freedom.
"We love Hobby Lobby, and we love this store," said Lana Fore, who supports Green's decision. "He should have the right as a private business owner to stand on his Christian beliefs."
They add they're grateful to everyone who came out and helped support them throughout the day.
