Stupid move on Hobby Lobby's part, but the end of the day Hanukkah just became a major holiday so that we Hebrews could have a holiday to compete with Christmas. And later Festivus.

Also, Hobby Lobby, you realize that Jesus was, ya know, Jewish...

Yeah, but some of the people who believe Jesus existed blame the Jews for killing him.

So, they don't carry Hanukkah stuff.  Neither do alot of stores.  Deal.  And never, ever shop there.

Article and headline have so little to do with each other as to be worthy of FOX news.
Some blogger gets his panties in a bunch and suddenly this is a conspiracy against the Jews
In his blog post, Berwitz said he believes the lack of Jewish holiday decorations is "anti-Semitic" in an area with a large Jewish population.

Benevolent Misanthrope: So, they don't carry Hanukkah stuff.  Neither do alot of stores.


That was my thought. I can't remember the last time I saw a Hanukkah display at a store, and I live in an area that could be considered somewhat more Jewish than others.
 
2013-09-30 03:11:23 PM
Jewish people have holidays?
 
2013-09-30 03:11:23 PM
Yeah, but they had great deals on Ramadan decorations this year.

If they start carrying Jewish decorations, will they also stock Muslim decorations?

The flower store at the end of my street doesn't sell beer.  Alcoholism is a recognized disease by the ADA. Therefore, the flower shop is discriminating against me. I'mma protest.

I wonder what would happen if Hobby Lobby knew that a lot of pagans call it the "oh shait" occult store.

Yeah they don't have the nicest candles, incense or material but they will do in a pinch.

also if you have a large Jewish population odds are you got a few hundred ma and pa stores that actually cater to the need of the group.

Right, well there's a liquor store on the OTHER end of the street. But sometimes that's out of the good beer, so EVERYPLACE should cater to me.

"Honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company in a manner consistent with biblical principles."

Well, that sounds like Judaism to me, it's about as Biblical as you can get.

Look, the Hobby Lobby can eat a box of dicks, for a variety of reasons. But this store sells tacky Christian shiat, not tacky Jewish shiat. biatching that a store doesn't sell what you want is utterly retarded. Go somewhere else.

Now, you want to boycott Hobby Lobby because they think they should choose which medications their employees can get? That makes more sense to me.
 
2013-09-30 03:45:43 PM
Foolish policy - ya know, with just a little effort, the local stores can stock as little or as many Hannukah items as needed by the local market, and any bad press like this can be avoided. But NO, the morons at head office got to make a point of so-called "Christian Values" (which are what, exactly?) and now they've got this crapapalooza in the media to deal with.

No, outside groups shouldn't dictate what is sold in your store (within reason), but this was dumb financially, socially, and frankly, yes, morally.

gopher321: "Christian Values" (which are what, exactly?)


Apparently, one of those values is "not catering to those people".

// which is fine; we've got catering on lockdown anyway
// Bobby Slayton: "Christians say everyone's going to hell unless they're just like you. Blacks are going to hell. Jews are going to hell. Gay people are going to hell. And it's fine by me - the blacks'll entertain, the homos'll decorate, the Jews'll cater. It'll be one big farking party!"

On its website, the Hobby Lobby mission includes, "Honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company in a manner consistent with biblical principles."

Pffft.  I've been there.  I've seen you selling one fabric right next to a completely different type of fabric!

Catholics are only pagans according the heretics who left the One, True, Holy and Apostolic Church to become Protestants.
 
2013-09-30 04:29:27 PM
That's not kosher.
 
2013-09-30 04:30:41 PM
BTW, the heretics need a Yom Kippur, since their heresy has all sins forgiven automatically.

Partly, yes. But its also a military holiday and so became much more culturally important worldwide with the establishment of the modern nation-state of Israel and the various military episodes around that. Plus Hanukkah lyrics are farking brilliant, like Ronnie James Dio on acid:

O mighty stronghold of my salvation,
to praise You is a delight.
Restore my House of Prayer
and there we will bring a thanksgiving offering.
When You will have prepared the slaughter
for the blaspheming foe,
Then I shall complete with a song of hymn
the dedication of the Altar.
...
To sever the towering cypress
sought the Aggagite, son of Hammedatha,
But it became [a snare and] a stumbling block to him
and his arrogance was stilled.
The head of the Benjaminite You lifted
and the enemy, his name You obliterated
His numerous progeny - his possessions -
on the gallows You hanged.
...
Bare Your holy arm
and hasten the End for salvation -
Avenge the vengeance of Your servants' blood
from the wicked nation.
For the triumph is too long delayed for us,
and there is no end to days of evil,
Repel the Red One in the nethermost shadow
and establish for us the seven shepherds.

I see your point!

In the land of the lost horizon
Where the queen lies dark and cold
And when the stars won't shine
Then the story's told, yeah
When the world was milk and honey
And the magic was strong and true
Then the strange ones came
And the people knew
That the chains were on
That the chains were on, my my my
In the land of no tomorrow
Where you pray just to end each day
And your life just slowly melts away
Each day you hear the sand
As it moves and whispers
Come and sail on my golden sea
Maybe one day you'll be just like me
And that's free
But, still your chains are on
Yes, your chains are on
Still, your chains are on
You've seen them walkin' on the water
You've seen flyin' through the sky
They were frightening in the darkness
They had rainbows in their eyes
Yes, when the world was milk and honey
And the magic was strong and true
Then the strange ones came
And the people knew
Yeah, that the chains were on
That the chains were on
That the chains were on
That the chains were on
Oh, my, the chains were on
In the land of the lost horizon
Where the chains are on
In the land of milk and honey
Still the chains are on
Where the queen lies dark and lonely
Still the chains are on
And the world was aglow and magic
But, the chains are on
Yeah, the chains are on
Oh, the chains are on
Yeah, the chains are on
Oh, the chains were on
Yeah, the chains were on
(Seen them walkin' on the water)
Oh, the chains are on
(Seen flyin' through the sky)
My, the chains were on
(They were frightening in the darkness)
Yes, the chains are on
(They had rainbows in their eyes)
Yeah, the chains are on

I think that link goes to the wrong article at the Marlboro-Coltsneck Patch.  This one is more relevant.

I won't be satisfied until they stock Songkran decorations.
 
2013-09-30 05:09:24 PM
One of the rabbis in the area wrote a blog entry about this. Basically he says Hobby Lobby has the right to not stock Chanukah items and Jews in the area have the right to shop elsewhere. It's called freedom people. End of story.
 
2013-09-30 05:10:15 PM

2013-09-30 05:13:21 PM
and lo Jesus said unto them "build upon me a big box store, and verily fill it with Chinese junk, and staff thought with low wage workers that lack healthcare and other benefits"

and it was done, and Jesus was happy
