Hobby Lobby advocates for a Christian-run government in Independence Day ads placed in many national newspapershttps://hillreporter.com/commentary-hobby-lobby-faces-backlash-for-july-4th-ad-claiming-only-christians-belong-in-america-105896
July 4th is a holiday to celebrate the literal birth of our nation, but some people have to go and ruin the party by making it all about just SOME Americans instead of all of us. Interestingly, it’s always people who claim to be religious (subtext: almost always Christians) who make the unilateral decisions as to who belongs and who doesn’t. Strangely, they’ve made the arbitrary choice to only care about people who think and look exactly like they do, and therefore they believe the whole country should think the way they do.
But hey, it’s not a cult or anything.
A Christian-owned chain, Hobby Lobby has been crafting hateful newspaper ads every July 4th since 2008, not that anyone asked them. Pretty weird how they’ll bend the Constitution and the Bible to their will and cherry-pick the parts that work for them while ignoring the core truths and values, but hey, that’s how hypocrisy works. Super convenient to overlook that “separation of Church and State” thing in the Constitution, because you can do the GOD WILL SMITE YOU IFFEN YOU DON’T GROUPTHINK WITH US and sleep at night while your head still remains firmly in the sand.
Mormons are also on this train:https://abn.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/ensign/1992/02/the-divinely-inspired-constitution
