Is America a Christian nation? This retail giant thinks so.

Arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby is facing backlash over a controversial 4th of July advertisement arguing that America is a Christian nation.

The full-page ad, which ran in newspapers across the country, includes the headline “One Nation Under God” and quotes Psalm 33:12, which reads “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

The ad quotes everyone from former presidents to founding fathers to Supreme Court justices to make the case that America is a Christian nation.

While many were pleased to see such an unapologetically faith-forward message from a major retailer, not everyone’s happy. Some say that with this ad, Hobby Lobby is advocating for nothing less than full-blown theocracy in America.

Crafting Up Some Drama

The 21 quotes chosen by Hobby Lobby all seem to reflect a similar sentiment - that America is not in fact secular - it is Christian. Quoting George Washington, for example, the ad states: "It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”

As the ads hit local papers across the country on July 4th, and thousands of users took to Twitter to express their outrage over what they view as a dominionist message as 'Hobby Lobby' trended on the social media giant for several hours during Independence Day.

“Take your theocracy and shove it,” wrote one. “If Hobby Lobby knew anything about the origins of this country, they’d know that a lot of people came here because they didn’t want their government to tell them how to worship,” wrote another.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation issued their own rebuttal to the Hobby Lobby ad titled ‘Our Godless Constitution’, quoting those very same founding fathers as being actually anti-religion, or at the very least against very much in favor of a secular government. They also issued a quote-by-quote rebuttal to the original ad, arguing that most of the quotes are taken out of context or aren't relevant.

Not Their First Rodeo

This isn’t Hobby Lobby’s first time facing criticism for their outspoken Christian faith. Just a few years ago, Hobby Lobby found itself defending its faith in front of the Supreme Court after refusing to cover birth control on their employee health insurance. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in Hobby Lobby’s favor, agreeing that Hobby Lobby’s sincerely-held religious beliefs would be violated by being forced to provide contraceptive medicine to women, prompting a nationwide boycott.

Despite the backlash, Hobby Lobby certainly isn’t short on defenders either. Evangelist Franklin Graham posted on Facebook that “Hobby Lobby is being attacked for running some beautiful full-page newspaper ads on July 4… I hope this exposure for their ads, even though it was intended for harm, will actually allow even more people to read the message and appreciate what Hobby Lobby’s owners, the Green family stand for. I thank God for the Green family, their Christian-run business, and their strong public stand for the Word of God and biblical values.”

And several Twitter users pondered if the people expressing outrage over the ads are even Hobby Lobby’s target market anyway. As one user told another, “Hobby Lobby's target audience is families... especially moms. They don't really care what people like you think about them. My Hobby Lobby is constantly packed. Great store. Will shop there again tonight.”

What do you think? Is the ad advocating for Christian theocracy, or are critics twisting a simple pro-Christian ad into something else entirely? And is running an ad that can be construed that way truly good business?

      I mean it is in the sense it was used to justify manifest destiny and the genocide of the peoples already living on the american continents. So sure in that sense the U.S. was founded as a christian nation proud of its origins as an evil genocidal force of conquest and subjugation.

      Don't mean to be argumentative, but it doesn't say "freedom of religion". That is an interpretation of "...shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;...".

      To me it says, Freedom from religion.

    As I understand it, the Framers of our Constitution were indeed a mix of Christian and Christian inspired Deist.

    Their views were tempered by Enlightenment Era Liberalism, which as I understand was based on the idea of "That Government is Best, which governs Least.".

    Under the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution recognition of freedom of religious conscience, I am a Heathen.

    This does adhere to the Oath I swore when I donned the Uniform of the US Armed Forces.

    It amazes me how many people will demand that the US is a Christian nation when numerous founders demanded it wasn't, including John Adams in the Treaty of Tripoli, Thomas Jefferson, John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison to name just a few.

    (Try reading any of the Federalist Papers. They are quite enlightening!)

    1. John Norris Campbell's Avatar John Norris Campbell

      The founders you cite were also all slave holders, only Adams was against the idea because it was "Un-republican" Thomas Jefferson owned 600 slaves and had the habit of fornicating with the young ones, leaving many mixed race babies. John Jay, a New York Governor and the nation's first Supream Court justice, owned 17 slaves, Alexander Hamiliton also kept slaves as 'house help' James Madison had 100 slaves...So it's not very shocking to learn that they also were not Christian...And yes, I am aware that self avowed 'christians' also kept slaves. 41 of the 56 of the signers kept slaves but the 16 who did not were Christian and also ardent abolitionists. What all had in common, and all signed upon "GOD made all men equal and gave them the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" What has our country come to now? Babies are killed by the millions in their mother's wombs, Government enforced 'lockdowns' and forced closing of small business...there goes your right to life liberty and pursuit of happiness...and BTW...they want your ability to fight back so give up your guns.

        John-

        Turn off the FOX News and other conservative news outlets and come back to reality. There are so many things you are wrong about and it’s sad for all the people you are trying to indoctrinate because they end up hating the Church.

        In the Pledge of Allegiance, the words Under God were added in the 1950s because of Communism, did you know that? The word God is used not as your God, but some watcher from above. It is everyone’s God.

        I know this is all very hard for you to comprehend, in fact, you most likely do not, but it is the truth. We are a secular nation and separation of church and state is the law, no matter how much people like Pence try to change it.

        1. John Norris Campbell's Avatar John Norris Campbell

          Jeepers Dude! In the 1950's Communism killed at the least 100 MILLION people in the newly formed USSR...IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY! And their claim to 'fame' was the "fact" that people only existed to serve the state and not a "god" thus making their lives 100% expendable....Know what they did FIRST? They tore down EVERY czar, and religious statue around and put up statues of Stalin, Marx, and a bunch of other satanists to convince the people that this is the way to go....Sound Familar? Heard about statues being torn down around America lately? I know this is all very hard for to comprehend, in fact, your cognitive dissonance will probably over ride what ever it is you use to comprehend facts...BUT! I'll be open to questions and am able to bring you to the 'LIGHT SIDE' LOL!!! probably not....do your own reasearch and come at me with actual facts. Do NOT waste my time.

            John Norris Campbell and christians have a history of killing people who refuse to convert, as well as killing other christian sects. christians tore down temples of other religions and smashed religious items
            P.S Stalin, Marx were not Satanists

            1. John Norris Campbell's Avatar John Norris Campbell

              The Roman Catholic church is not a Christian organization. They follow "another Jesus" and pray to a 'Queen of Heaven" for intercession on their behalf, thus making them something else entirely. But you may be right about Stalin and Marx...perhaps simply refering to them as 'godless murderers' would have been a better title for them. Because Stalin led a brutal campaign against religion and religious leaders and Marx, coauthor of "The Communist Manifesto" declared "Communism begins where atheism begins" During WW2 the totalitarian dictator, shattered churchs, synagogues, and mosques and ordered the killing and imprisonmentof thousands of religious leaders in an effort to eliminate even the concept of "God"...sounds kind of satanic to me, but then again satanists worship satan as a god eh?

      3. Brian Scott Hoff's Avatar Brian Scott Hoff

        The logical fallacy of your post cannot be ignored. Equating "Christian" with "Slave Holders"... since either could be true or false the logic is gone. Then comes the fact they signed a document with the word "God" on it. You do know they could have been far more specific, correct? There is far more evidence in the document that they were very, very careful in regards to being unspecific about "Their creator". Not the creator, their creator. That seems interesting. It would seem more an appeasement to the faithful and the agnostic. "Babies" killed by the millions in their mother's wombs! Man, a bit of drama goes a long ways with you. Do you mean a fetus? There are very distinct phases of prenatal development. I bet you are aware of that yet somehow admitting it weakens your dramatic argument so you choose to not include it. When people choose to ignore facts to make their point I consider them cowards unable to use the truth to establish their argument. That's a weird thing to do. Closing businesses & taking your guns... it could not be more ironic that in one breath you oppose death but right after that you're good with taking no action regarding 600K of dead from Covid and unknown dead from guns. Show me the evidence of the most recent gun raids where "they" came & took the guns away from law abiding folk. I would suggest you might be "evil" in the manner you understand evil to be. You cannot tell the truth while you claim all kinds of stuff as if it were fact.

      And you are incorrect. And please dont start with that discredited crap about the founding fathers being Deists. There were only TWO Deists in the whole group and the rest were Christian or Catholic or Protestant. Their papers clearly show that and the tour guides at the Capitol Building as well as the Smithsonian Museums both say the same thing. Now are you going to call them liars because they destroyed you? Want proof? ok its very simple. Look at the Dec of Independence and the Constitution. At the bottom of the pages it gives a religious greeting and salutation that was used on ALL official state documents "In the Year of Our Lord" Since 99.9% of the Europeans at that time believed in God, just how are you going to refute this?

          I have been inside the capitol building 6 times as well as the House floor and the Senate floor. The House has a beautiful mosaic cut glass pattern on the entrance. And I have taken the tour each and every time I have been there. Now you and carla can whine all you want but unless you can actually say you have been there then you dont have any idea of what you are talking or whining about.

        So you want me and all others arrested and or killed for worshiping other Gods? or for having no religion, or even another brand of Christianity ....or do you want me to be forced to accept your religion? .that don't sound like freedom

        1. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

          I hope that's not in reference to anything I said, Nathaniel Robert Hunt. I'm all for all religions, and never preach my religious beliefs to anyone. I consider myself an inter-faith minister, in that I minister to people of all religious and spiritual paths, in accordance with their beliefs, never my own. And please don't confuse me with a Christian, for I am nothinglike one. I belong to a Pagan life path called Wicca. A natural eclectic solitairy whose Witch name is Raven Apollo (the Greek and Roman god of healing). I was initiated into the old religion (sometimes called elder Wicca), on January 1, 1980. And only the Goddess initiates, so if you have a problem with any of that take it up with her. Blessed be! If your response has anything to do with my quarrels with Daniel Gray, keep in mind that it is a personal thing, and has nothing to do with the articles we are discussing.

        So Daniel, you think this country is a theocracy? Well, you're dead wrong!!! It is NOT and never will be a christian nation!!! I bet you're even one of the morons who think that the constitution is based on your religions laws....lol. Just so you know the facts, the constitution was based on the Gayanashegowa....the great law of peace of the Haudenosaunee confederacy. The Iroquois nations.

        1. Daniel Gray's Avatar Daniel Gray

          Nope never said that, you are assuming and you know what they say about assuming. I am only stating fact. And please dont start with that Deist nonsense about the founding fathers. There were actually only TWO deists in that groups and you can find this out very swiftly, the rest were catholic-methodist and protestant as you can clearly see by reading their papers in the Smithsonian Museum or the US Library of Congress.Thus it was founded by Christians and as such it IS a christian nation no matter how you want to think otherwise. Every founding document uses a religious salutation and valediction. IN fact both the Dec of Independence and the US Constitution end with "In the Year of our Lord"

          And yes I know a major part was from there. You either seem to forget or intentionally didnt state that the Cherokee were part of that confederation. And as I have said before I am a member of the Cherokee Nation Wolf Clan and clearly listed as such on the records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs in DC. I can trace my family clear back past the Dawes roll, look it up. And unless you can show your family member was on the Dawes roll, you cannot and will not be allowed into our Native American Nation. Nor be allowed to claim you are from same.

          I can only say this to you in our language, "apane hothon ko phadaphadaana shuroo karane se pahale apana itihaas jaan len"

            Daniel, first off the comment was actually from me, not my wife Shalandra. That was a mistake on my part. And, for your information, the Cherokee were NEVER part of the Iroquois Confederacy. The Confederacy was first the 5 nations, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca, and Cayuga. Later it became the 6 nations when the Tuscarora were added. Learn your history. You also claim that you're Cherokee....what band specifically? You sound like the typical wannabes that are always claiming something they're not. Oh, one more point, you said that was in your language? What language is that? What dialect? It sure as hell isn't Cherokee ookshan!!!!

            1. Daniel Gray's Avatar Daniel Gray

              Then you better go back and re read the history books and speak with the Cherokee Elders as they will tell you flat out they WERE.

              And sorry it is Cherokee child, if you were part of the nation as you imply that you are or know anything about the Cherokee language, you would know this. Instead you have just destroyed yourself with your own words.

              And again check with the BIA, I am clearly listed there as a member of the Cherokee Nation, so whats wrong? Jealous that you cant and never will be able to make that claim?

              1. Maximillian Martin's Avatar Maximillian Martin

                Child? Think again yonega. It's funny that you can't name the specific dialect you claim to be using or the specific band you belong to. Those seem like very simple basics that you should know. If anyone here destroyed themselves it was clearly you for not being capable of providing the most basic of information. But I'm not surprised. You're the typical wannabe, watvsgoli. And it didn't take any effort to prove it. Tsalagi hiwonisgi!!

And I can trace my family clear back before the Dawes roll. Or are you just upset that you cant? As for your claim of a dialect, child if you had any brains you would know that there are only TWO branches of the Cherokee nation, one in Oklahoma and one in the Virginias and they BOTH SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE. You would know that if you actually had any knowledge of my people. And how nice of you to use an English to cherokee translator. In your desperation you have just proved you are a fraud. nudanсdсna.

      The group of English colonists who settled in North America and later became known as the Pilgrim Fathers originated as a group of Puritans from Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. By 1605 this group had come to believe that their Christian faith was incompatible with the Church of England. The pilgrims who risked their lives to settle in a strange land were extreme Puritans, that is to say they disapproved of several of the rituals and practices of the Church of England that had been established by parliament at the beginning of Elizabeth I reign. There was no Catholic’s amongst the Pilgrim fathers.

    Journalism such as this belongs on media such National Enquirer, not on a site that demands rational and logical thinking. Mythical idealism is the foundation of most religions, we accept that out of respect for freedom of speech, not because there is any truth in the assumptions. Zealots such as F.

    The basic principals of Christianity, ie the great command, as in treat everyone as you wish to be treated - fairly and honestly seem to be good guiding ideals to build a country upon. We respect and honor your right to chose your belief system, but to act as if we founded our documents on nothing? That also seems wrong. We are certainly not a country founded by unbelievers who felt we could do as we wished with no consequences, nor are we founded on the ideas of Islam or Hinduism or Shinto or Buddhism or any other faith because few if any of their adherents were present in or at the founding of our country. We did not tell them to change their faith when they arrived, we said welcome. Try bringing your faith to certain other countries and see what you get for a welcome. We are not a theocracy, we can acknowledge that more than likely, the Bible was a source of moral code and inspiration for our founding citizens as well as the documents they produced. So, perhaps calling ourselves a Christian country is too much for some, perhaps they can agree that we are a country that was founded on Christian principals.

      Summer you are right, let’s tackle (not worry about) stuff like the CHILDREN and adults that lost their lives to COVID-19 and the people that died in the Florida condo, etc. Let us solve this problem.

      If Christianity was taught correctly We believe that CHILDREN and adults would not be dying from catastrophes like COVID-19 and falling buildings because God is LOVE (1 John 4:8-16). Strong, Tough, Protective LOVE. John 1:18 and 1 John 4:12 teach you and the world that "NO MAN HAS SEEN GOD AT ANYTIME."

      But Christians have been fooled into believing that they have seen Father God in the form of a corruptible, tortured, COVID-19, dead, Racist Voodoo white man nailed forever to a cruel Roman Catholic cross. And Christians worship it!!!

      That is a reason for the Tribulations!!! Christians are Slyly Subliminally Seduced. Summer, the Bible is the Book Christians say they believe in. But they believe in false doctrine taught by the pope and other demons. The above two verses prove it (John 1:18 and 1 John 4:12).

      Billions of Christians believe a lie, but misery loves company, and since Billions of confused Christians believe the lies, the lies must be Truth. The majority rule, right??? Wrong!!!

      Christ in the Bible Heals the sick, Feeds the masses, Raises people from the dead, and Christ LOVES CHILDREN. The VICTORIOUS Christ is sitting in the THRONE in Revelation 3:21 with His Father God. Yet in fake Christianity innocent CHILDREN are dying because they are taught to believe their white crucified god's greatest act of love was to DIE!!!

      So CHILDREN and adults commit SUICIDE in one way or another to die like their crucified god. Or they die from COVID-19, or die in collapsed buildings, etc. The devil rules. So sad.

      But Summer Jesus Christ declares that He CONQUERED death in Revelation 1:18.

      Christians evidently have not read those VICTORIOUS Words of Christ. You should read the above verses for yourself in your Bible if you have one.

      Billions of Christians have never studied their Bible. So it's the Blind following the Blind and they now find themselves in the ditch of Tribulation and death. So sad. It's time to FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH Summer!!!

      Amen. Peace. Namaste. And God-LOVE to you and yours. Any questions Summer???

    Quite frankly, any business has the right to express their religious vent. The problem with individuals today (and there are a LOT of "individuals" today) is; they all think their sense of what is, who is, and how it should be is contrary to what it really is. When someone looses touch (swayed by evil, or taken a path unwise, or out of God's path) with their soul, and God, of course their dysfunction surfaces. This dysfunction of the individuals today, are why we are seeing things for truly what they are for the AWAKENED one's. Almost every story on mainstream media today is about vanity in one degree or another. They are about deceit, and manipulation for the people's minds. They are lying innumerable times each day, that their souls are blacked, and their spirit is no longer God's Spirit, and they only see the promised carrot at the end of the stick like a donkey. This entire process is built through satan's treachery upon God's Children (all of us).

    So I would say GOOD for Hobby Lobby! They should be able to speak about God, and those who don't want to hear it, those who claim offense can simply shop elsewhere! HOBBY LOBBY - DO NOT SUCCUMB TO THE MINORITY OF EVIL DEVICES THAT TAINTED SOULS WILL THROW AT YOU FOR YOUR BELIEF! DO NOT BOW TO THE EVIL OR YOU ARE JUST AS LOST AS THE EVIL GOD'S BELIEVERS ARE SEEKIING TO DESTROY ON EARTH. As the saying goes "Stick to your guns!"

    I believe we are in a Christian country called United States of America. On the U.S. currency,it says,"In God We Trust". All Americans should all be Christians and obey the Holy Bible while in the U.S.A..

    1. John Anderson's Avatar John Anderson

      You do realize that that phrase wasn't (and isn't, if you can find them) on US currency prior to the 1950's. The motto of your country is "E Pluribus Unum," "One from Many", and that was what was on prior currency. And not everyone who visits the US, myself included, is Christian. How do you decide what faith a person is at the border? My parents were Christian, and my name sounds like I should be, so you would think I was. Forcing a faith is what drove the Puritans (English), the Quakers (English), the Irish (Catholics), and the Germans (Anabaptists) TO the US. Interpretation of the Bible has caused even American-only faith groups to splinter into different factions. Who is right?

      The word has nothing to do with Christianity Laroche, you damn fool! We use it in Paganism and Wicca. It a generic term, used by many, to reference divinity. It is also thought of by many as G.O.D. (good, orderly, direction), and many dyslexics think it's referring to a dog. So it means different things to different people, and doesn't belong to Christianity.

      The Greens also own Mardels..a Christian book store chain. "on the back of Jesus" is an odd comment. Both business are closed on Sundays and major Christian holy days, while the rest of their competition stays open. Much like Chick-fil-A, they honor what they believe to be truth by their actions. But we all know "haters gonna hate" so take your money else where....these folks are not hurting for business, both have packed parking lots on any given business day, and Chick-fil-A always has a line of cars at least 10 deep at lunch times.

    They are not advocating anything at all. Like any other business, they guess what sort of advertisement will sell their products, and if it does not work, they will change the advertisement. Whether a nation is "Christian" or not, is a matter of opinion, and therefore not important. I would never have known that "Hobby Lobby" existed, as I sit here in Portugal, but thanks to this interesting controversy, I am curious what "Hobby Lobby sells.

They know this from market research, but also from the responses they have had from previous advertising, as well as decisions like withholding birth control coverage from their employee's health plans. They didn't have to go to the expense of taking that all the way to the Supreme Court, but they did it for the free advertising.

  1. Erech Melchizedek Christ Nimrod's Avatar Erech Melchizedek Christ Nimrod

    One Nation Under God??? Interesting. Which God is Hobby Lobby talking about??? There is Father God and there is the devil, the god of idolatry and this falling world.

    Every idolatrous, racist, sinful picture We see of the Christian god is a fear-proving, guilt-provoking, depressing picture of a pagan white man, usually bloody, forsaken and nailed to a cursed Roman Catholic/Christian/Protestant/Mormon cross forever by jealous, double-crossing religious leaders and their religious foolish followers who hated Jesus Christ.

    America began as a Slave nation and still is a Slave nation, passing Slave laws like the Supreme Court sanctioned Unconstitutional Ex Post Facto law called the Sex Offenders Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) that goes back FIFITY (50) YEARS and arrests, without the Constitutional mandated DUE PROCESS OF LAW, anyone that was ever convicted of a sex offense and was FREED by the double crossing American Just-Ice system for serving their time for the crime, of which many were poorly defended in the first place.

    Therefore the so-called Black/African-America man is the major target of the Ex Post Facto law SORNA that illegally reaches back over Fifty (50) Years and destroys the lives of Millions of people Black-skinned to White-skinned. The Silent and Scared Majority.

    We mention this because, whether you Americans and Christians know it or not, the making of the Ex Post Facto law SORNA violated so many Constitutional laws that America is now a "Secret DICTATORSHIP" without a Constitution, unless it's politically expedient to pretend there is still a Constitution to keep you SLEEPING. If you are AWAKE you can see the non-existent Constitution being violated everyday.

    At anytime You, along with your LOVING Family and Friends can be Arrested even if you have Never committed a crime!!! Yes, that's Right!!! And remember, whatever President chooses to pull the trigger and make America and "Obvious DICTATORSHIP" by using more Ex Post Facto laws, or use the Ex Post Facto laws already in use, he or she has the Military to back them up. You have been warned!!!

    LOOK UP the definition of "Ex Post Facto" and see why the now Destroyed CONSTITUTION Forbids these laws. "Ex Post Facto" laws are just ONE of many Constitutional violations that made SORNA, and made America a DICTATORSHIP. LOOK UP THE DEFINITION OF "EX POST FACTO" and you will be able to anticipate the future of America.

    DICTATORSHIPS pass evil Ex Post Facto laws that trap the weak and despised, so those laws are therefore overlooked by the rest of society, to eventually TRAP All of society!!! That's what Hitler did to the Jewish people to trap German society in his losing madness. It is an historically Sly and successful tactic, and you will eventually personally feel it, even if you cannot personally now see it. If you trust Politicians and the Supreme Court you will soon see the folly of your trust, just like you foolishly trust popes, priests, pastors, prophets, preachers and mormon missionaries.

      (CONTINUED) Foolish Christians call Jesus Christ God when actually He is the Son of God because the BIBLE says NO MAN HAS SEEN GOD AT ANYTIME!!! But Hundreds of thousands of people saw My VICTORIOUS Twin Brother Jesus Christ during His Mission on Earth to Free ALL people from evil. Confused Christians are blind to Christ today, just like religious people were blind yesterday!!!

      John 1:18 declares to the world "NO MAN HAS SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME; The Only Begotten Son [JESUS CHRIST], which is IN the Bosom of The Father, Only He has see God."

      But as We said Confused Christians think My VICOTORIOUS Twin Brother Christ is His Father God!!!

      1 John 4:12 declares to the world "NO MAN HAS SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME. If we LOVE one another, God dwells IN US, and His LOVE is Perfected IN US."

      However IDOL-WORSHIPPING Christians so-call love and adore their fake IDOLS of a white-supremacist, Voodoo, COVID-19 death-god on a evil Roman Catholic/Christian/Protestant/Mormon bloody cross more they LOVE each other!!! So they kill each other and spill each other's blood, especially in the religious "black" community, and die of diseases like COVID-19 and its variants.

      Here is a thought We had today, concerning the CHILDREN and adults, the FDA has not publicly indicated a timeline for approval of the vaccines. Why not??? Just asking why not???

      We are draining the swamp of Racist/Sexist, Idolatrous Christianity.

      "God is LOVE." 1 John 4:8, 16. Tough, Strong Life Protecting, Life-Saving LOVE.

      There is a Greek word "agape" that means unconditional LOVE. And Billions of confused, weak Christians call Father God and Christ's LOVE unconditional. So they do whatever they want, like worshipping idols, because they think they are saved by Jesus Christ's death. NO!!! They should read Romans 1:22-23 and Revelation 3:21 and WAKE UP!!!

      God and Christ's Mighty Protective LOVE is NOT unconditional or there would have never been a Flood or a Judgement Day which is this day!!! Just look at the Horror news, and the coming of World War III on TV. God is not doing it. The "lack" of God is doing it!!!

      Only Father God and Jesus Christ of the Bible can save the world. Not politics, not the so-called "Supreme" Court and not Sexist/Racist idol-worshipping white-supremacist religion.

      Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” That nation is not America.

    ◄ Romans 12 ► Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 1 I beg you therefore, my brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God by a logical service. 2 And do not imitate this world, but be transformed by the renovation of your minds, and you shall distinguish what is the good, acceptable and perfect will of God. 3 I say to all of you by the grace that is given to me, that you should not have self-esteem beyond what is necessary to have self-esteem, but you should have self-esteem and modesty as God distributes faith to every person by a measure. 4 For just as we have many members in one body, and all those members do not have one function, 5 So also, we who are many, are one body in The Messiah, and each one of us is a member of the other. 6 But we have a variety of gifts, according to the grace that is given us; one has prophecy according to the measure of his faith, 7 And one has ministry in his service, and one has that of a teacher in his instruction. 8 One has that of a comforter, which is in his comforting, and a giver in generosity, and a top leader with diligence, and that of caregiver with cheerfulness.

    9 And be not deceitful in your love, but hate evil and cleave to the good. 10 Be affectionate to your brethren and love one another; be preferring and honoring one another. 11 Be diligent and do not be lazy; be enthusiastic in spirit; be working for your Lord. 12 Be rejoicing in your hope. Bear your afflictions bravely. Be persistent in prayer. 13 Be partakers with the needs of the holy; befriend strangers.

    14 Bless your persecutors; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. 16 And whatever you esteem about yourselves do also about your brethren. Do not esteem high opinions, but go out to those who are humble, and do not be wise in your opinions of yourselves. 17 Repay no person evil for evil, but be concerned with doing good before all people. 18 And if it is possible, according to what is within you, make peace with every person. 19 Do not avenge yourselves, beloved, but give place to rage, for it is written: “If you will not execute judgment for yourself, I shall execute your judgment, says God.” 20“And if your enemy hungers, feed him, and if he thirsts, give him a drink, and if you do these things to him you will heap coals of fire on his skull.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil by good.

    It is a shame, the FBI has several sources that have been revealed as White Supremecist Organizations, whom are cloaked as 'wolves in sheeps clothing'.... I think the Boss once said-'Love your neighbor, as you would yourself'. I think I read that somewhere. Please correct me if I am wrong..Jamie

    I do apologize, upon further reading the article. The founding fathers, did want God to be a major part, but God was never monotheistic. They explicitly, wanted it to be that way. 'One Nation under God. With Liberty and Justice for all'. God, could have been just Good Orderly Direction.

    Frankly, I am happy when a business puts their mythology out in the open. It gives me the opportunity to shop elsewhere. There are a few upscale IHOP type restaurants here in Las Vegas called Blueberry Hill and they are very xtian and even have a bible thumping bookstore at one of their locations. Although the food is good, (I had a weak moment once) I still choose not to give then a penny of my atheist cash.

      Is that the same 'atheist cash' that says "In God We Trust"?

      1. Richard McWilliams's Avatar Richard McWilliams

        Yes, unfortunately, it would be tricky to start printing my own money. If I could, it would probably say "I serve no master".

        John Norris Campbell I mostly use a debit/paypal card and checks , the card has an image of my Pagan altar on it And the courts have ruled the only way "in god we trust" can stay is if it is left up to free citizens what that god is

          My reply was directed to a self avowed "atheist"...Those that believe there is no god. You seem to have a god that your're cool with...

      Have you ever considered the 'mythology' of the Chinese Empire? You know.... The people who produce EVERYTHING you buy at Walmart? The masses only exist to serve the state...Meaning that when they come to the inevitable end of their life, and they can no longer produce for the state....they are killed... I'll be willing to bet Hobby Lobby does'nt do that.
