Hobby Lobby Showcases Religious Hypocrisy
CNN

You lyin' ass, hypocritical, piece of shit, motherfuckers. Angry

Quote: (CNN)It wasn't Hobby Lobby's scrapbook supplies, their seasonal decorations or their generous selection of fabrics that got the attention of the Department of Justice. It was the ancient clay artifacts from modern-day Iraq.

The DOJ said the company smuggled the artifacts into the United States, and the arts and crafts chain on Wednesday agreed to a settlement with the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York.

According to court documents, Hobby Lobby agreed to forfeit thousands of Iraqi artifacts and pay a $3 million fine to resolve the civil action the Justice Department brought against the company.

How many commandments did they break?

Thou shalt not lie?
Thou shalt not steal?
Thou shalt not covet?

Quote:Ancient cuneiform tablets and clay bullae from modern-day Iraq were smuggled into the United States through the United Arab Emirates and Israel, Justice officials said. With Hobby Lobby's consent they were falsely labeled as "ceramics" and "samples" and illegally shipped to Hobby Lobby stores and two corporate offices, according to the DOJ.

Oh, and we're not talking a couple of items:
Hobby Lobby Agrees to Forfeit 5,500 Artifacts Smuggled Out of Iraq

Angel xtian forgiveness required. Yes

I'm curious why it isn't a criminal suit. Maybe the lower level of proof in a civil court Vs criminal court plays a part. Just fine the fuck out of 'em, I say. Yes

RE: Hobby Lobby Showcases Religious Hypocrisy
I wonder if those artefact can be retraced to ISIS. Selling historical artefact was their second biggest source of financement after black market oil. They smuggled hundreds of pieces of artwork and documents from Syria and Iraq and destroy about as much in iconoclast frenzy. Should those artefact be traced back to ISIS held or formerly held territory. Hobby Lobby could be in big trouble.

For a business that's "built squarely on biblical principles" I wonder what other activities it gets up to?

Other than denying female employees access to the morning-after-pill that is...........oh and stealing.

Do these "principles" extend to not providing mixed-fibre uniforms for staff? Encouraging incest perchance?

Looks like they put that money they saved by denying women birth control pills to good use...

Their only hobby is being a bunch of cunts.

I don't shop their overpriced garbage.

I would not characterize Hobby Lobby's selection of fabrics as being "generous."

Apparently, Hobby Lobby can be found lacking from top to bottom these days.
