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

Hobby Lobby Stays Open Because Owner’s Wife Had Vision From God March 22, 2020

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.

In other words, Green, who has an estimated net worth of $6 billion, is asking his employees to risk their lives for $10 an hour because his wife thinks she can talk to God. 

The arrogance, the callous cruelty, the staggering stupidity, is simply despicable. 

The following are some of the reactions on social media to Green’s cruel and callous letter:

 

Previously Hobby Lobby made headlines after winning a Supreme Court decision allowing the craft store to opt out of the contraceptive mandate of the Affordable Care Act. The decision was a dangerous and disastrous move that elevates conservative Christian dogma above the law, helping to pave the way for a Christian theocracy.

Bottom line: Placing the lives of his employees and their families at risk, Hobby Lobby owner David Green refuses to close his chain of arts and crafts stores because his wife Barbara had a vision from God.
