Hobby lobby Says 'Come To Work' ... Because God


While most America is self-isolating, one of those essential businesses is telling their employees to come to work … because God.

As of late last week, the Christian owned Hobby Lobby stores were open, and in a letter to employees founder of the chain, David Green, said his wife Barbara is a “prayer warrior” amid “this war with this latest virus,” suggesting that prayer will keep his workers safe, and keep them at work lining his pockets with coins. He said:
 “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.”
So, come to work, Mama needs a new pair of Jimmy Choos and God told her the workers can pay for them.

Groom???????

I hate that dump. If I did crafts, I'd sooner gn in the garden and hot glue twigs berries and stones, before frequenting that store.

Well, I guess it's a good way to weed Crazy Christians out of the world.

@MM
They just opened one near us, in the same parking lot as Chic-Fil-A. I've dubbed it Hate Plaza.

@AM
You and me both.

@Dave
But the boss' wife is a prayer warrior and says god will spare them.Spare me this foolishness.

@Frank
I'm with you!

There certainly seems to be some grooming going on there but I am not sure it is by God.

I have never set foot in their trashy, plastic kingdom of stupidity.
Barbara can keep her delusions to herself. Also, they're worth millions and millions and only one tiny percentage of employees are 'full time'. All the rest are idiots working part time without benefits for two xtianist millionaires. Tiniest of violins.


XOXO

We got a Hobby Lobby locally last year--I've not stepped a foot in the store. And I never will.

Self-serving hypocrites. May they travel to bankruptcy.

Hey, how cool - - I got your site to load (again, finally!).

I can't believe I'm going to say this...may God guide them all straight to a very, very, very serious case of the virus. 'Course, it won't change a thing. They'll continue to think it is all God's will and plan. But, hey, money over sheeple, right?

Stupidity disguised as religion...You know what...God gives us common sense...Keep your damn ass at home and WASH YOUR DAMN HANDS!!

It always amazes me how people who pray to god always get told in reply exactly what they want to hear....no-one ever reports that god told them not to support an adulterer and sex abuser in the White House.
