Hobby Lobby may close 500+ stores

Hobby Lobby May Close All 500+ Stores in 41 States |

We believe that it is by Godís grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. Weíve not only added jobs in a weak economy, weíve raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

But now, our government threatens to change all of that.

A new government healthcare mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance.

Being Christians, we donít pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we donít cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs.

What's not Christian about making a profit and paying your employees well?

Nothing.

Hobby Lobby and Costco are both business models that show retailers can pay employees a higher wage and still make a good profit.

Hobby Lobby and Chick-fil-a also show a business can be profitable and close on Sunday's.

Bravo to all 3 companies.

That magic negro hasn't read that part of killing Christians in the newspapers yet or heard it from Fox News.
