    If hobby lobby was smuggling endangered children into the USA, I would respect that as the christian thing to do. I've heard of charities like "save the children" not steal the artifacts.

    'wasn't done through proper channels'

    I am surprised there is no criminal prosecution.

    The President of Hobby Lobby knew about the purchase of these items- and was warned that they might have been obtained illegally.

    Then they were shipped to the United States in a fraudulent manner- intentionally misdeclaring the value and description of the items - and perhaps intentionally misdeclaring the country of origin.

    People have been sent to jail for doing this kind of thing.

    This is not a 'Christian' thing- these people intentionally broke American law- I don't understand why the company is just being fined- and not criminally prosecuted.

    If convicted the owners of Hobby Lobby ought to jailed, placed on probation, and as a condition of probation be required to pay for 1,000 Wedding Cakes for Gay and or Lesbian couples, only then can they be paroled and released on supervised probation.

    Throwing gays off rooftops was the only decent thing Isis ever did.

    Not because they are gay. Because they are obnoxious.

    The artifacts had already been smuggled out of Iraq.

    The President of Hobby Lobby inspected them- and was warned by a hired Hobby Lobby expert that these might be illegally obtained artifacts- but bought them anyway.

    And then illegally smuggled them into the United States- breaking the law by a) falsely declaring that they were 'samples' and 'clay tiles' rather than their correct descriptions, b) falsely declaring their value and c) by falsely declaring their country of origin.

    Thank God U.S. Customs was doing its job and combating this type of criminal behavior.

    Christian criminals and Hobby Lobby- two peas in the pod.

    Never surprised when Tipsy cheers murders.

    I should be, but Tipsy has applauded murder too many times to be surprised now.

    “At no time did Hobby Lobby ever purchase items from dealers in Iraq or from anyone who indicated that they acquired items from that country,” the retailer said. “Hobby Lobby condemns such conduct and has always acted with the intent to protect ancient items of cultural and historical importance.”
