Hobby Lobby Stays Open Because Owner’s Wife Had Vision From God

Barbara talks to God: Despite the dangers of the coronavirus pandemic, Hobby Lobby owner David Green refuses to close his chain of arts and crafts stores because his wife Barbara had a vision from God.

In a letter to store managers Green ordered his employees to keep working and keep the stores open because his wife Barbara, a “prayer warrior,” received a message from God. In the letter dated March 19 Green writes:

In my family, Barbara is the prayer warrior. Today, that title takes on such a different meaning than I ever imagined before because we are at war with this latest virus…

In her quiet prayer time this past week, the Lord put on Barbara’s heart three profound words to remind us that He’s in control. Guide, Guard, and Groom. We serve a God who will Guide us through this storm, who will Guard us as we travel to places never seen before, and who, as a result of this experience, will Groom us to be better than we could have ever thought possible before now.

"My wife talks to God" translates to "my profits are more important than public safety".  What is it that makes religious people so arrogant and selfish?

I think I answered my own question.

In my area (Kansas City metro), most municipalities have ordered non-essential businesses to close, and have given a clear definition of "non-essential".  I don't believe that Hobby Lobby is going to be able to use the "religious exception" to allow them to violate the order, try though they might.

In this area, even places of worship have shut down, so HL doesn't stand much chance.

With rare exception, general merchandise stores are permitted to be open.  The whole World is not dependent on NY style orders.

Admittedly, many stores are indeed closing, more of a business decision as the customers are not there to support full operations.

If this was meant as an insult to NY, everyone should be doing the same thing.  The sooner we all isolate ourselves, the quicker this virus will die.  Our President, of course, thinks corporate profits are more important than human lives and he continues to fumble the ball.  Talk about a thin crust.

Well, you know, people might have a CRAFTING EMERGENCY!!!!  Bwahahahahaha!

But seriously, I don't doubt that people like them think that they are "special" and won't get infected -- until they do. And then they will have to come up with some more bullish*t to cover their previous story.

Remember god moves in mysterious ways. If god wants them dead it is because he wants their loved ones to suffer loneliness, sorrow and despair. All the good things in life.
