Buy A Cross At Hobby Lobby to Support Abortion

Yes, you heard that correctly. Hobby Lobby's profits pay for abortions. And the owners who so hate birth control are perfectly fine with paying for those abortions.

Rude Pundit:

Now, the Rude Pundit is far from the first person to point out the hypocrisy of Hobby Lobby indirectly funding abortions in China while wanting to deny access to some of the most effective means of preventing abortion to its employees. He may not be the first person to say that if anti-choice lawmakers really gave a damn about abortion, they would try to ban American companies from doing business with China until it changed its policy. But he would like to be the first person to say this:

When you buy a cross at Hobby Lobby, you are helping to pay for abortions in China.

Hobby Lobby says on its website that it is committed to "Honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company in a manner consistent with biblical principles." Apparently, those principles end at the borders of the United States. And that gives the game away, doesn't it? That all David Green and his supporters really care about is controlling the bodies of American women?

There are two sentences, one after another, on that same "Our Company" page that provide an amazing juxtaposition. First, we're told, "We believe that it is by God's grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured. He has been faithful in the past, and we trust Him for our future." And then, immediately after, we're reminded, "Hobby Lobby is THE place to shop with everyday Super Selections and Super Savings!" Yes, we all remember that biblical passage that said, "Acquire all ye can as ye may of earthly goods manufactured by disposable and cheap labor so that ye may get discounts great and deep on all your scrapbooking needs." That was in Paul's Letter to the Bargain Hunters, right?

Still, no matter which way the Supreme Court case goes (and it's not looking good for people who believe "religious liberty" means "liberated from your religion"), you can always tell your mom or your neighbor that the next time they spend money at Hobby Lobby, to buy a cross or a wooden dowel or some ribbon, they are supporting abortion. Thank them for helping to keep the population down, just like their allies, the Chinese government, would.
