Sunday, March 22, 2020

In a message widely circulated on Twitter, the company's founder David Green reportedly told employees the decision to stay open was informed by a message from God bestowed upon his wife Barbara Green.

These people are fruit loops. Get a butterfly net. Same criminals stole thousands of Iraqi cuneiform tablets after the invasion. They need to be stopped.
Why are so many religious people greedy ignorant ashholes? I'm glad I believe in nothing but reality as it is with no religious baggage.
Religion is a curse.

Lock them up, and shut them down forever.
Send the CEO and executives to jail for 10 years.

Nut jobs on the level of Jim Baker and Pat Robertson... which is several levels below whale manure.

"The love of money is the root of all evil." describes them perfectly.

Under what pretext? When did liberalism become the bastion of fascism? This, and libs demanding Trump resort to authoritarianism.

I fully support Hobby Lobby in this decision. The sooner scrapbook hobbyists die off the better.

Nonessential personnel should stay home. I get it. It's not easy for retail folks, they - more than any of us have to work to eat. This isn't humorous in the least bit. Same with the bars and restaurants.

Making this epidemic a political football isn't cool, no matter where you fall out on the spectrum of politics.

Well that is interesting because Jesus told anyone who's read the Bible not to tempt God and this is clearly doing just that.

I must have missed something.

My guess is, since AndreaMackris wrote it, I actually missed nothing.

When companies were allowed to have spiritual beliefs that supersede the law.

Hobby lobby itself. The owners stole cuneiform tablets taken from Iraqi historical sites after the US invasion in 2003. They were convicted. I don't think they got any time but they had to surrender the tablets to be repatriated.

Do they sell milk and eggs? If so, my wife will be right over...

Seriously, the stupid is deep and wide here in Okiehomie. Last night our moron governor was touting his actions to keep folks safe, a week after he was on Facebook and Instagram sharing pix of him and his family at the local Squat & Gobble, telling folks in the OKC to go out to dinner.

The saddest thing about living in Oklahoma is that the local folk so blindly accept the word and direction of their elected and corporate leaders.

More profundity. With these kind of posts, your brain seems to be at least as large as JPW's! LOL

But I would appreciate how drawing attention to your childish posts (which of course they unarguably are) makes me a snowflake.

Thanks!

COVID-19 was on The Ark, right next to the tsetse flies and mosquitos. Who are we do deny God's will? If anyone dies whilst Hobby Lobby is doing the Lord's work that's just all part of "the plan".

Hobby Lobby picks and chooses what laws it will follow in an attempt to force its religious beliefs on its workers. Like how Goatman picks and chooses which of 16000 plus Trumptilian lies to believe.

I choose to not believe any of them.

I know only one thing. If God speaks we will all hear Him exactly the same. We know the truth. God spoke to no one on this but Hobby Lobby wanted their stores to stay open because they want their 30 pieces of silver. I have never and will never shop in a Hobby Lobby store, they are unpatriotic greed mongers and nothing more. Those hiding behind religion are virtually always the least faithful.

How many here are obediently and correctly obeying the rules of isolation but then still defending Hobby Lobby? Are you just stupid or what? Does anyone really need hobby supplies right now?

To be honest, I'm surprised how many Deplorables are sitting this one out.
Nothing from RightOCenter, JeffJ, Boaz, Goatman*, Docnjo, MSgt, or Nullifidian & Co.

Actually I haven't sen a single post supporting Hobby Lobby on this one, at least not overtly*.
And they can't all have written #4 and #5 which got deleted.
*Yes I'm aware.

This is ------- stupid on Hobby Lobby's part.

Does that make you happy, Snoofy?

#32 | Posted by JeffJ at 2020-03-24 01:11 PM | Reply

No, JeffJ, it doesn't make me happy, when you wave off involuntary manslaughter as simply being stupid.

Putting Tupperware in the toaster oven is stupid.
Keeping your non-essential business open so you can reap a little more profit while spreading the virus to your workers and your customers is a whole different animal.

But I'm eternally confident your retort makes you happy, since you think by dodging the real issue you've addressed the real issue.

Like I said.

It's a lot more than "stupid" to stay open.
It's spreading a deadly disease with no cure and no vaccine.
It's irresponsible. It's anti-human. It's putting profits over people. It's everything that's wrong with Capitalism.

And to you it's no worse than putting Tupperware in the toaster over.

The owner has over 6 billion dollars and millions to spare? He could actually do what he preaches and show some charity towards his workers here. Naw, just keep the store open and hope they make it out alive and their families do not get the virus as well. No paid leave either? Ahh, who needs that when you have an owner that has billions? He is all that is important.
