Hobby Lobby CEO Claims Not Being Able To Own Slaves Violates His Religious Freedom

New York, NY

Hobby Lobby is back in the news again, and this time it’s even more controversial than before. In an interview, CEO David Green made the case that the abolishment of slavery violates his religious freedoms under the 1st Amendment.

“The 1st Amendment comes before the 13th and 14th, and the Bible clearly approves of owning slaves” stated David Green on Fox News this morning.

Green has made similar arguments in the past, including the case that went to the Supreme Court in which Hobby Lobby declared providing contraception in employee healthcare violates his religious freedoms.

“Not only does this infringe on my Biblical right to own slaves, but it also violates our shareholders’ right to those sweet, sweet higher dividends made possible by free labor.”

Sean Hannity is expected to defend these statements tonight in a special edition of “Slavery: Why do liberals hate capitalism so much?”

    1. The irrefutable act of human idocy is that we always return to the most devastating calamities just to validate our need for wallowing in historical buffoonery. Not until we irradicate with extreme predjudice those who drag us back into neanderthalism will we conquer our future.

      1. Hahaha EXACTLY in reading this I said who said the slaves have to be black? Better be careful what you wish for!! Lol

        1. Yesssssss🤣😂🤣😂🤣 supposedly the son of the owner attends my church and I’m gonna ask him about this b.s.

      2. Exactly! You can have white, meth head slaves that work for meth even! Slaves can be ANY color/race/ethnicity. Nowhere does it say in the bible about slaves being only one color nor did it limit the race back in the time of slaves. Indentured servitude was for ANYONE owing an UNPAYABLE DEBT no matter what color. They had white slaves that willingly gave up their freedom to work off gambling debts or loans taken out against land or property one did not wish to loose. This was done even in Roman times back when SPARTACUS was alive. To understand slavery we need to go back to when and WHY it was put in place.

        1. Yes, but it was called indentured servitude. In which, they (the whites), would work off their debts, then regain their freedom. The only way for black slaves to gain their freedom was to escape.

        2. Do you want you or your family to become slaves? Indentured servants were freed once their debt was repaid. Black people were enslaved for over 400 years with no pay, building a country, and making white Americans rich, and we are still treated like third class citizens. You should be forced to be black and I guarantee you will change your attitude about slavery.

          1. The African American community knows fully the horrors of the 45th president and his evil empire of corrupt racists.
            Hispanic and Asian people are suffering in the millions.

          1. Tell one of those MF’s walking around with their pants hanging down this i dare you

          1. It sounds like he’s just highlighting how dangerous and stupid “religious freedom” is, by applying the same arguments used against gay marriage or abortion to slavery to illustrate a point. Your religious beliefs are not above civil law and equal rights and freedom for everyone else!

  1. If you think you are entitled to own people then go ahead and get you some. And they will slit your throat and i would support them

    1. I despise pepple like him our ancestors went through hell so we could have the better life we live today no its not perfect but am thankful thus faar so thankful God gave all the pioneers the bravery and strength to stand for our black Generation

    2. I despise pepple like him our ancestors went through hell so we could have the better life we live today no its not perfect but am thankful thus faar so thankful God gave all the pioneers the bravery and strength to stand for our black Generation

  2. In crazy times like these we have fools like this running companies. MAYBE his employees shouldn’t work for him if his values are so black like his heart and vision,but yet we all should be ashamed of people like him and take a stand and tell him to take his jobs and money and stick it right up his A$$ and remind him they don’t have slaves in heaven but then again in hell he just might be a salve his self.well USA strong against the virus and fools like this so call crafter of freedom.In your dreams buddy if you think I will ever spend another penny in Hobby lobby.Not with your values. I beat he eats eggs that come from a chickens but!!!

    1. Well said my friend!! Every African American boycott Hobby Lobby, and every White person that would like to boycott because that stupid a$$ is really crazy. He need to be admitted.

  3. I loved going to hobby lobby but after reading this I will never step foot in one again I will not support such stupid nonsense I don’t believe God would either.

    1. Amen…he never has to worry about this company ever getting another dime from me. Michael’s will be getting mine!

      1. Sad .. how stupid people are in this world .. it literally says unbelievable under American Buffoon .. if that name was already enough to let you know it’s fake

    2. I absolutely love this store, to the point of having a problem. It hurts me to stop giving my business to hobby lobby. With this being said I won’t continue supporting this ignorance. What needs to happen is a black/brown made business person needs to build a similar company and put this jerk out of business. Then he and his wife can put that into their pipes and smoke it!

    3. Wake up this story is b******* and your response is exactly why they posted it if he said this on Fox News where’s the tape they can’t stand the man because he has a Christian company and the left hates Christians wake up

      1. I am a so-called liberal. I know much you people love labels. I am also Christian, the only Christians I have a problem with are those that twist distort and bastardize the word of god to fit their evil narative. God loves EVERYTHING and Everyone, He said so. Can you say the same? No? Then I cry ‘FAKE’ Christian! There are Ten Commandments, read and follow. They are clear and understandable without you twisting and adding caveats.

    4. I agree I was thinking of purchasing a bed.. I don’t think so. You will never get my black money..

  4. I had no idea this man held such elitist views. I’ve shopped in his stores on several occasions because I’m a crafter. I’ve been observing his blatant disregard for the law to shutter his stores in light of covid-19. I also read where he unlawfully removed cultural artifacts out of Iran or Iraq. He is clearly a dishonest man who still wants to claim he is saved by the blood of the Lamb. Christ says not all who cry Lord, Lord will enter into His kingdom. I believe this old and miserable man is angry because he had to shut his stores and is seeking attention. At this point I don’t care what he is seeking, I will NEVER shop in his stores again.

    It is important to know your bible and to understand the word of God as a believer so that you recognize when fools like this try to twist the word of God for their own benefit.

    1. One day I was walking through the xmas lane and a thought crossed my mind that one day someone’s going to have Santa holding Jesus in the manger. Lord behold, two yrs latter Hobby Lobby introduced just that, Santa holding baby Jesus in the manger. From that point forward I questioned many things that the Mormons proclaimed. Yes, I do have a family member that is a proclaimed Morman for two decades.

  5. I will ,also, not spend another penny in hobby lobby. How this nut case owns his business cannot be a blessing from God, but just the opposite. A religious zealot, cheap bastard, that is fueled by the devil and not Christian ethics.

    1. Who’s the nutcase here Paula? Is it the guy who didn’t actually say with this BS site is suggesting or is it the woman and other individuals who haven’t the minimal self control and intelligence necessary to spend a minute or 2 determining that this is completely fake? I’ll give you a hint. He wouldn’t be the nutcase from my perspective!

    2. Do you realize this is made up by a satire website?? Do some research before you just blindly believe whatever you read!! 🙄

    3. How do you not realize that this story is made up by a satire website??? Do some research before you blindly believe whatever you read!! 🙄

    1. This type of thinking is common among Republicans. Look how trump sent the minorities working at meat packing houses back to work. Especially without Madk a d ppe equipment.

  6. As has been stated before “It takes a real Crisis to Reveal WHAT more than WHO a person REALLY IS”! Being made aware of this TYPE of MENTALITY from this company, NEVER will I Ever say foot in a hobby lobby facility again. I sincerely hope and pray that the god he serves and worships “BLESSES” him Accordingly, meanwhile the ANTICHRIST in D.C. no doubt couldn’t be Happier. Crap such as THIS is one of the Main reasons why a LOT of people of All ages tend to shy away from today’s Organized Religion

  7. Can you please show the link to the news feed. I have tried to research this and can not find anything on it except this story.

  8. As has been stated before “It takes a real Crisis to Reveal WHAT more than WHO a person REALLY IS”! Being made aware of this TYPE of MENTALITY from this company, NEVER will I Ever say foot in a hobby lobby facility again. I sincerely hope and pray that the god he serves and worships “BLESSES” him Accordingly, meanwhile the ANTICHRIST in D.C. no doubt couldn’t be Happier. Crap such as THIS is one of the Main reasons why a LOT of people of All ages tend to shy away from today’s Organized Religion

    1. I agree with your view of organized religion. I’m happy and confident to say that the religious views expressed by so many of the idiots that we read about are not found it in the Scriptures no matter how they try to twist and a misapply they are simply not found in God’s word. The sad truth is that over the centuries man has dominated man to his own injury as explained in the Scriptures but that being the case it still leaves no justification for forced slavery in the name of God! That thought is born purely from a privileged racist mentality.

  9. It apparently is extremely easy to make people believe anything. Does the word satire mean anything to anyone responding here? This news item was made up from start to finish.

    1. Clearly not the time for this kind of satire…people are scared and ready to believe anything.. Keep it lite dude!

  10. Hobby lobby was a favorite place to shop for hobby supplies but I’ve been at odds increasingly with the ethics this owner flaunts. The refusal to shut down was the final straw but now this slavery view is the nail in the coffin! NEVER AGAIN ,N.E.V.E.R. will I shop there.!!!

  11. I pray for the soul of America. What profits a man to gain the world and lose his soul.
    A form of Godliness,but denying The power of God. Lord have mercy.

  12. Omg! Is this guy off his meds???? Or maybe he should take some. My wife and I have shopped hobby lobby for several years. Now after reading this im so not gonna go there for anything. First off this isnt the 1920’s where slavery was acceptable. If the CEO of hobby lobby wants slaves then maybe he should of never been in charge. Fucking people these days. God will not him.

  13. Matthew 19:23-24(KJV) Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
    And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

    Mr. Hobby lobby

    I know that with God all things are possible, and you claiming to JESUS, should be aware of the scripture above. In all your (getting) get an understanding. You are not PONTIAS PILOT) & all of a sudden your wife has a dream, 😜 just know that you will NOT be able to wash your hands and declare that your not guilty for NOT OBEYING the laws of the land.

    You do know the Bible .. right? Render to ceasar what is Cesar’s.

  14. This is so sad…..one crazy, stupid person would ruin good jobs for everyone else. Why is his family letting him talk like this, maybe they should have him declared unfit.

  15. Is this a joke? Why would a fool like this jeopardize such income by this actions. I am just wondering is this true, or did he say this, or is someone playing a game. Did these words come out of his mouth? If he did say it then why the hell he’s still around?

  16. Will never shop there again. Don’t ever cross my path boy. What a low life! Should send some coronavirus carriers over to his place for the night. Bible is nothing more than a book made by men to control everyone.

  17. THIS IS A SATIRICAL WEBSITE.. It’s called American Buffoon. Motto is Unfair, Unhinged, Unbelievable….

    Don’t fall for the okie doke lol

  18. They better check their racist ass Ceo or a lot of your buyer will kick rocks including me i was just shopping there and will not be returning. WE DON’T SUPPORT RACIST OF ANY COLOR

  19. I applaud your m for being honest it’s the one’s that’s uncover that’s the problem. When a person show you who they are you believe them then it’s up to y’all how you support his business from there s day forward. There’s a lot more out there uncover that doesn’t have the heart to come out.

  20. I have spent MANY of my dollars in this store. However, the last time I was in the store will be the last time I shop in this store.

  21. HERE WE GO AGAIN IGNORANCE AND RACISM!! NAHHH WHITE MAN U DON’T WANT BLACK PEOPLE AS SLAVES!! U WOULDN’T LIVE A SEC!!

  22. Well said my friend!! Every African American boycott Hobby Lobby, and every White person that would like to boycott because that stupid a$$ is really crazy. He need to be admitted.

  23. I didn’t show there that much But my dollars won’t be going that way. Yes, to even mention religion in the same breath of such Foolishness is evidence of a Hell. He’s up in n age
    Too! His linage won’t live off my money. The nerve!

  24. Everyone should not shop at hobby lobby. Except for people who have the same mind set like his. Me. CEO low life Satan is waiting on you.

  25. Some people are stupid, it’s fake. The website basically says so its self. American-buffoon. Do any of you even know what a buffoon is?

  26. Well since it was prostitutes in the Bible. I feel it is only fair to pimp your Lily white wife. Bitch better have my money. 😂🤣😂

  27. Yes this website is called American Buffoon, For all the bafoons that believe the stories written here. This is a satire fake news website only for entertainment. Unfortunately the news that is put out sends false messages to people who don’t take the time to research and believe everything they see on Facebook.

  29. do you dummies really not realize this is a satire site? like, it’s not a particularly GOOD one, but jesus god, some of you are dense. the title of the site is literally American Buffoon, which is a takeoff of all of the shitty conservative blogs with “American” in the title, and the prose is so overwrought it’s obviously a joke.

  30. Back in Biblical times the Black Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt and Kush (Sudan) owned all the slaves. They took them in war to build the temples and pyramids. The work was a lot harder than picking cotton and tobacco.

  31. To the CEO in your case choose your own color, after all a slave is a slave no matter the skin color. Sence all colors have had hard times, why not choose one of your own kind? I’m sure they won’t mind?

  32. He’s right it violates our freedoms. So everybody go get you some nice sturdy white slaves because That’s the only way they’ll will see slavery come back again

  33. Michaels will have to be my new crafts store. I use to love Hobby Lobby. Thanks to this jerkoff, not anymore. I’ll never set foot in that place again.

  34. Wow! I loved shopping in this place but I will never shop there again! This kind of ignorance saddens me greatly. ☹

  35. If this is a true statement that he made, he needs to be careful about his request. You see slavery is alive and well, it is just used differently in today’s world; it is now called human trafficking and black children aren’t the only ones being placed in bondage. I am sure he has grandchildren and his statements could come back to bite him in the ass.

  36. I agree I was thinking of purchasing a bed.. I don’t think so. You will never get my black money..

  37. Isn’t it enough that America was built off the backs of slaves. That is why minorities are still struggling to catch up, because they got FREE LABOR from our Ancestors. WOW People are so ignorant 🤦🏿‍♀️

  38. I thought they was out of business. I guess you have to keep yourself in the lime light since your business is a has been. David Green, you are a sick man.

  39. What the hell is wrong with people idolizing slavery in 2020? I’m tired of listening to the bullshit

  40. Untrue click bait!!
    If we start believing everything people post our life and mentality would alway be as small as this article.

  41. To all you buffoons commenting on racism, slavery, etc., you may want to take note that this site is pure SATIRE!!

  42. Do you people actually believe this article is real. It was created by American-buffoon.co. They post satirical stories. Don’t believe everything you see on the internet Don’t be sheep.

  43. Well David Green since your first amendment right has been violated so has mine, a slave has no color you can come be my slave, I definitely have something for you to do, It might be good it might be bad inquire within.

  44. I can’t believe anyone would say something that stupid.
    It was most likely taken out of context or part of a larger statement that was not saying that.
    We have seen this happen over and over with Trump, Zimmerman, Barr, etc.
    Besides, while the Bible recognizes an institution exists, and may give rules to make it humane, does not mean it confines the practice. It was Western Judeo-Christians that abolished slavery. Think of that.

  45. Is this even real news? If so Hobby Lobby can kick rocks all the way to Bankruptcy Court. What kind of fool pronounces something like this when he has a thriving business & Got the nerve to hide all these feelings behind his Christian products. Lord help him!!😑🤨😐
