Hobby Lobby Pillaged Illegal Artifacts for its DC Bible Museum

Hobby Lobby, the arts-and-crafts chain whose devout Christian owners won a landmark Supreme Court ruling on religious freedom, is caught up in an antiquities-smuggling scandal that has opened the company to accusations of hypocrisy.

The Oklahoma City-based business agreed to pay a $3 million fine Wednesday over its role in what federal prosecutors said was the smuggling into the U.S. of ancient clay tablets, seals and other Iraqi archaeological objects that might have been looted from the war-torn country...

Federal prosecutors described a scheme that involved lying and perhaps stealing. It included a number of middlemen and involved the use of phony or misleading invoices, shipping labels and other paperwork to slip the artifacts past U.S. customs agents, prosecutors said.

Among other things, cuneiform tablets were labeled “ceramic tiles,” and items carried paperwork that said they came from Turkey or Israel. Also, artifacts were deliberately undervalued and shipped in small batches to multiple addresses in Oklahoma City to avoid drawing the attention of customs agents, prosecutors said.


So, Hobby Lobby was funding ISIS. Ain't that just peachy?

As long as the roots are not severed, all will be well in the garden.

They were forgiven over 2000 years ago.

And it would be ungrateful of them not to provide enough sins to make the proactive forgiveness worthwhile....

Don't you just love evangelicals? Funding ISIS, above following the/their 10 commandments, hating and discriminating against women what a fine group of bible thumpers.
