(ABC 6 News) --  It's a case that has the nation's attention.  The United States Supreme Court will decide if for-profit companies should be forced to provide contraception coverage, even if it violates the owner's religious views.

Hobby lobby is challenging the requirement, which is part of President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.

Thursday, the son-in-law of the company's president was in Rochester for the Christian Business Leaders Summit.

Michael McAfee is the Director of Faith Initiatives for Hobby Lobby.  While he couldn't talk specifics on the ongoing court case, he did talk about the company's strong religious convictions.

"Our faith is not something we check at the door whenever we walk into work. it's something that influences all that we do and that god's word has a lot to say about the way that we operate our business," McAfee said.

The Supreme Court is expected to reach a decision sometime this summer.

Experts say it could set a precedent to unravel Obamacare or settle the issue once and for all.
