This just in: Hypocritical owners of religion-driven business repeatedly betrays edicts of their own religion for personal gain! Shocking!

They're liars and thieves. Don't call them anything else.

Wasn't it also revealed that the fragments of Dead Sea scrolls that they paid hundreds of thousands (if not millions) for are most likely fake?

Okay, I can let slide taking Sundays off, and I can understand dicking around employees about insurance and pay because hey, it's retail. But essentially funding ISIS? Can we extend a little blame to where it's due? Perhaps send some old men around to explain to locals how sorry they are to pay for the reign of terror in exchange for looted artifacts?

If anyone can pinpoint the moment when 'I'm a Christian!' was accepted to mean 'I can do anything I want and Fark you all!' I will gladly steal Obama's time machine and go back and kick the guy who did it in his tiny honky balls.

There are people in Oklahoma who defend what the Green family did because "they're good Christians" and a bunch of Jesus arguments.  This will be seen as Government overreach and an attack on "good Christians".

They should have to pay 100k per time per day for every artifact they still haven't turned over.

With the proceeds going to Planned Parenthood.

You'd think there'd also be some jail time involved when you smuggle thousands of artefacts, but whaddyaknow, rich white Christian (by some definition) guys.

Maybe September 12, 2001, when Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell led the first "OOGA BOOGA MOOSLINS!!!" attacks while Manhattan and Washington were still in blazes.

Churchies have some of the biggest hypocrites around. Or grifters, if you will. Same as these pastors flying personal Cessnas, living in 20,000 sq ft homes, driving Bentleys, all tax free.

They fleece ignorant but well meaning poor people and it is legal.

To top it off, the highest grifter in the land has a "spiritual adviser" that has got the grifting thing down pat. Look up Patty White and see what the heck this administration is cool with. (Duh, of course they are bedfellows)

Just makes me sick that this crap is allowed, legal, and promoted by so-called god fearing suckers.
 
2018-01-21 02:07:26 PM  
So it wasn't sincerely held religious belief and the Hobby Lobby case is overturned and women can go back to screwing everyone in town because they can afford birth control?

No down side

Someone (or maybe everyone) should go on whatever social media reaches this fine Christian and remind him of Commandments # 2, 8 & 10.

Yeah, because the cross is made from monkey metal and sold for 50% markup.

mittromneysdog: Hobby Lobby is just a company that feels the rules don't apply to them.


And you are persecuting them worse than the Romans for even thinking that.  You beast!
They deserve more protection and tax payer money just because you wrote that.
And you should be jailed.

Am I leaving any of the typical BS out?  "Persecuted Christians", please help me out on this one, my mind can only sink so low.

How much terrorism have they funded?

In the town an ex had to move to there was a hobby lobby that occupied the left half of a little strip mall. there was a little gap and then immediately to its left? Dildo store. I always thought that was hilariously appropriate.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid

Do they hide or destroy certain artifacts that don't coincide with their belief system?
 
2018-01-21 02:31:35 PM  
Even setting aside the religious hypocrisy for a second...these are priceless and irreplaceable historical relics. They're not farking artwork. They're part of the past.

You want a nifty clay doodad conversation piece, go to IKEA. You don't need a goddamn 10,000 year old cuneiform tablet looted from Baghdad.

You got the name wrong ( it's Paula White ), but yeah... I wouldn't really care that the rubes are getting fleeced but, unfortunately, these same people vote and their "informed opinions" are implanted by the preachers/con-artists.
 
2018-01-21 02:35:20 PM  
But giving money to terrorists for stolen artifacts is the company's deeply held religious belief!

You know you're dealing with idiots when they say "faith is the substance of things not seen," and then go around stealing things to see so they can justify their faith.
