(National Report) – Hobby Lobby, an American retail company that sells overpriced made-in-China labor camp manufactured “craft” supplies, does not carry items that might be considered non-Christian. Items like blue and silver centerpieces for Hanukkah, paper dreidel kits or Menorahs.
Several Jewish bloggers have criticized the management of Hobby Lobby for offering only Christian themed craft goods.
In a response to much of the criticism that Hobby Lobby only caters to the Christian theme crafter, the firm’s management responded with the following statement, published in the Washington Post:
“Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. is currently working with our buyers over our merchandise selection. Our customers have brought this to our attention and we are currently evaluating our Holiday items and what we will carry in the future.”
Steve Green, the spiritual leader of the 550 store retail chain and its owner, is a Christian. Carrying items that Christians will not normally use for religious holidays or home decor isn’t a priority or part of the management’s strategic forecast. It just isn’t good business to purchase these items.
It does not make Christian business sense for Hobby Lobby to offer Jewish craft supplies.
Buyers for Hobby Lobby hunt for value. Items offered by Hobby Lobby made by Christians in Chinese work prisons usually have a low labor cost and are anointed with the grace of Christian persecution.
Because the prison workers are making Christian products for sale in the US Hobby Lobby stores while imprisoned for their faith, the products offered by Hobby Lobby are blessed, as are the profits. If these prisoners were to make Menorah kits, they would not be persecuted Christians.
According to Billion Bibles, a watchdog organization with interests in Christian persecution in China, the persecution of Christians in China is evolving from simply torture, death and imprisonment to luring Christians of underground churches to manufacture idols for false gods.
“On the whole, the main thrust of Satan’s attack on the body of Christ in China has shifted away from brute force to the more insidious temptation of money and heresy. Rather than the euphemistically named Public Security Bureau kicking down doors, the bigger threats to the church in today’s increasingly materialistic China is the lure of health, wealth & prosperity and other false gospel, much of it imported from the West.” – Persecution of Christians in China, Billion Bibles
The body of Christ, bloody and broken while incarcerated in Chinese prison gulags, needs to make low cost Christian products for companies like Hobby Lobby, not Jewish stuff. It is about freedom of religion guaranteed in The Constitution.
Some have noted that Jesus was raised in a Jewish home and that the Last Supper was a Seder, a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of Passover. Those people are heretics heck-bent on destroying a Christian business.
Hobby Lobby began as a family picture frame assembly project, funded on a $600 bank loan. The company’s management objects to providing specific medical care to employees that infringes on the management’s freedom of religion, whether or not those employees have an objection or medical need.
Through the sale of low cost crap from imprisoned Christians in China, Hobby Lobby management is able to donate healthy contributions to various religious groups that seek to spread the word of Christ to individuals that can be incarcerated in China and make more crap to sell at higher profits in Hobby Lobby stores.
