They would likely say they are pro-Christian. But they don't carry crafts for specifically Jewish holidays. [ht DJ]
I posted this because I like the conclusion. If Hobby Lobby doesn't want to carry the products you would like them to carry, shop elsewhere for those products (and maybe for everything else they might carry). The market system is good like that.
I guess it really comes down to this: Hobby Lobby really is a Christian company, and by that, they don’t just mean that they’re owned by a Christian. They mean that they only want Christian customers and that, if they were allowed, they would only have Christian employees. Their own mission statement requires that employees “honor the Lord in all we do by operating the company in a manner consistent with biblical principles.”
Well, I’m pretty sure Hobby Lobby’s employees and CEO are further removed from biblical principles than the customers they’re discriminating against. I have yet to meet a fundamentalist Christian who keeps kosher, and only a few who follow that “love thy neighbor” rule.
Yes, we live in a capitalist economy that gives Hobby Lobby the right to sell—or not sell—whatever they want. They’re also allowed to say that they want their employees to adhere to “biblical principles.” They’ve even been allowed to deny female employees the right to birth control. Luckily, that same economic structure also grantsme the ability to say that they can kiss my feminist Jewish ass. If you’re not already boycotting Hobby Lobby for their misogyny, you might want to consider boycotting them for antisemitism. For me, it’s just one more reason to drive an extra mile and go to Michael’s instead.
