In the July 4 issue of the State Journal, a full-page ad titled "God Bless America" expounded, with multiple quotes, that the United States of America is a Christian nation. It even argued the law about prayer in school. This full-page ad was sponsored and paid for by Hobby Lobby. 

Interestingly, in the July 6 issue of the State Journal, a news article stated that Hobby Lobby has agreed to pay a $3 million federal fine and forfeit thousands of ancient Iraqi artifacts that were stolen and smuggled in from the Middle East.  

One of the Ten Commandments, of course, is "thou shalt not steal," which Hobby Lobby disregarded in purchasing these stolen items. Perhaps this billion-dollar corporation may not be as Christian as it claims to be. Maybe the company's leaders are just hypocrites.
