MORE problems for Hobby Lobby, caught smuggling $3 million in … the reason …

By

GOOD GOD! More bad news for the Christian company that has been in the hot seat lately.

Hobby Lobby Stores has agreed to pay a $3 MILLION federal fine and forfeit thousand of ancient Iraqi artifacts smuggled from the Middle East that the government alleges were INTENTIONALLY MISLABELED.

And what WERE these Iraqi Artifacts?

Get this, over 5,000 tablets and bricks written in cuneiform, one of the earliest systems of writing, as well as other artifacts that prosecutors say were shipped without proper documentation!

Hmmm.

Smuggled biblical artifacts purposefully mislabeled. OH MY!! (sarcasm intended)

Why?

Sounds to me like they were SAVING CHRISTIAN ARTIFACTS and HAD to mislabel them to GET THEM out of Iraq, a MUSLIM country that is 60-65% Shi’a, 15-20% Arab Sunni and 17% Sunni Kurdish!

The artifacts are being forfeited. To whom, I wonder.

Hobby Lobby President Steve Green cooperated with the government but stated “our PASSION for the Bible continues, and we will do all that we can to support the efforts to conserve items that will help illuminate and enhance our understanding of this Great Book”.

Sound to me like he did the right thing. What do YOU think??? Like and share to show your support for Hobby Lobby!
