Hobby Lobby CEO David Green Endorses Marco Rubio Because Trump Doesn’t Give “The Glory To God”

Via World Net Daily:

The CEO and founder of Hobby Lobby, the company at the heart of one of the court battles for religious freedom in this country – via a case that sought exemption from a government mandate to provide abortion-inducing drugs in employee health-care plans – gave his thumbs-up to Sen. Marco Rubio for president, calling front-runner Donald Trump’s lack of humility a frightening leadership characteristic.

“Marco Rubio has impressed us with his preparation and the way he carries himself,” said David Green, who is voting on Super Tuesday in his home state of Oklahoma, the Hill reported. “But most importantly, Marco regularly exhibits humility and gives the glory to God. I don’t see humility in Mr. Trump and that scares me to death.”

And in his written statement, he took one more shot at Trump, with this: “Our family business that we began with $600 has quite possibly been more successful than Mr. Trump’s but that doesn’t make either of us qualified to be president. And unlike Mr. Trump, we give all the credit to God.”

    Weird. Trump scares me for plenty of reasons, but not because he doesn’t give the glory to god. All the other candidates scare my because they do give the glory to god.

    • Ed Burrow

      right? yep, so true.

    • forgive me, i’m chatty this morning.

      here’s the real kicker. it is because tRump’s supporters *know* he is not really religious, that they like him. b/c they aren’t either, not “in their hearts.”

      old white xtian men don’t like to go to church, really. they know their priests are kiddie rapists. they know the church spends lots of money on stuff like fancy houses for the pastor, or private jets for him and his girlfriends. they know jeebus is a silly myth fit only for the stupid or young children. you’ve got to know a few of this type to understand their ‘logic,’ typical republican voters, who are more racist than they are religious.

      it will only help tRump, that his supporters get the joke. “jeebus, yeah i love him. whatever. tax cuts and kill the messicans! then i will be rich!”

      xtianity works with older women voters a lot. but older men? no. they just want to see handsome young blah men beat down for knocking up their pristine white granddaughters. tRump is promising he’ll do that. and, tax breaks! no more money to those lazy welfare queens sucking off SS, which was only ever really meant for old white guys who need scooters to get to the dialysis clinic.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        Always happy to chat with you, CD.

        Your take is spot on. Anyone that thinks trump is religious in any way is a deluded schmuck. His only god is himself and his money.

        There may be some that pay lip service to his religiosity but that’s all it is, lip service. It’s like an in-joke or something. This is about bigotry and the anger straight white men feel towards minorities, feminists and the LGBT community. They want that privilege back in whole and aren’t willing to share it with anyone else. They think they deserve it just because they were born white.

        I think women are often more religious as a holdover when they had no power and that was one way to fight back. It also made them more desirable as mates. Men saw them as pious and perhaps pliable. All I can say is that any of the GOP candidates will be a disaster for this country, but my real fear is a trump/cruz ticket. If that happens your rights and mine will be gone.

      • CanuckDon

        Ain’t it the truth! Those old men notoriously hate going to church. The only ones who do are the limp-wristed mamby pamby types who cower behind the bible because they’re too chickenshit to face up to their man-to-man desires.

      • Dot Beech

        Low-impact social respectability is the cover middle class men want, which the pastors gladly sell to them for a weekly tithe and dependable lip service. It is a sick deal, but one which is easily extracted from these guys. They lack the integrity and courage to speak up and risk a bit of heat.

        LGBT people are accustomed to taking heat, so they can speak up and rock the boat. They have been forced to think for themselves since they were children. They have always known that the system didn’t work for them. Most middle class men do not have to think for themselves and don’t want to. The depend on being easily swept along under cover of an unexamined church-bought middle-class respectability.

        Trump has offered them another large group which they can follow anonymously. After the years of evangelical pastors, he must be a breath of fresh air to them.

        No matter. Let them enjoy it now. Their days are resolutely numbered.

        • just a girl

          I LOVE YOU LGBT!!!!! YOU HAVE HAD TO WORK IT OUT WHICH MAKES YOU STRONG!!!!!!!

    • Silver Badger

      Ladies, many of us old white men don’t fit your stereotypes. We had no more choice in our race and gender then we do our sexual orientation. As far as white privileged goes, as a gay man I kinda missed out on that. The good ol’ boy network too. Be kind to those of us who are really on your side.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        We were both talking about trump supporters. Obviously not every straight, white man feels this way. I know enough straight, white men that are feminists to know this very well. But, there is a significant portion of straight , white men who are racist and who will support trump because they think he will make their world the way it used to be. Not all of those men are older, BTW. Many are young and angry for the same reasons.

        I’m a straight woman and I adore men. Straight and gay. The people we are talking about will be just as happy to take away your rights as they will be to take away mine.

        • Silver Badger

          I agree with you. I also respect your’s and CD’s opinions. As a gay white male, I am constantly condemned by the usual suspects. As a white man, I also get tarred with the same brush when white men or men in general are being bashed. Once again, just a bit of kindness is always appreciated.

          • Wynter Marie Starr

            I work really hard at not painting entire groups of people with the same brush SB. I’m not always successful. I’m the type of person who could have a conversation with anyone and find something to talk about. I like people in general, but I will admit that for me, trump supporters are by and large racist, misogynistic, anti women, antigay, and all around bigots. They may not see that aspect of themselves and I’ve talked with a number of them and what comes through clearer to me than anything is their anger. I will sometimes bash certain types of men; the kind that bash women or who think that women’s healthcare is unimportant, or the ones that think rape is okay and women don’t get pregnant from rape, and the ones that don’t think women should have control over their own bodies.

            I try and stay away from such men as they have nothing to offer me as fellow human beings. On the whole, I love men. I also love women. I am a woman and to hate other women would be the same as hating myself.

            I’m really sorry if you felt bashed in any way at all. It totally wasn’t my intention. Gay men, white or otherwise will not do well under trump either. So, I’m sending you some virtual hugs and a glass of good Irish coffee.

        • just a girl

          I adore men too. I served in the army, was raped by a black man– PTSD caused me to fear blacks and men, HOWEVER as a liberal I had to heal “freely” so, I became a stripper which empowered me with the look even touch me if you want but YOU WILL NEVER HAVE ME attitude. serving in the army and moonlighting as a stripper in a blonde wig and stage name seducing ministers, cops, drug lords, murderers, perverts, sport-stars (Randy Cross, Jim Mc Mahan and Jim Kelly), rock n rollers (John Cougar Mellincamp) taught me all I needed to know about the world and what men do to control us. I learned something listening to MAN AFTER MAN tell me their woes. Men love SEX WAR, COMPETITION & WINNING. I am married happily and I see in him how he reacts to everything. I don’t even think those things. He is aggressive in his thinking and I am not. He is Catholic and I am atheist. Hilary would not be the first female president. She would be the first butch gay woman president who is a criminal but as part of the establishment must work with the GOP, Lobbyists, in her pant suits. She fights for gay rights and yet remains in the closet and pretends to be a victim to her husbands philandering when the truth is they have an agreement. She cheats on him as much as he cheats on her but as a woman is MORE DISCREET and is less obvious because her partners are women. She is the henchmen to clean up Clintons messes. Thats the only thing that bothers her is his stupidity. TRUMP is not a religious fanatic and was smart enough to run under the republican ticket to eliminate the dangerous guys but he is part LIBERAL! He is a balance of the silent majority and conservatism. He is not anti abortion 100% and he i snot pro choice 100%. He is an issuist. Intelligent people see differences. He does. He will do more for our black american brothers and sisters and knock the shit out of ISLAM which is not a race, but a religion that commands that westerners be destroyed and by beheading. We must close up the borders. WE ARE UNDER ATTACK. Right now the intelligent people of this country are not disassociating themselves with all parties and following Mr. Trump. I( was a stripper on the most dangerous border in the US “Juarez Mexico”. My grandmother was born there and emigrated to El Paso TX US legally. My uncle was a Civil Rights leader and served as the National President of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and was a founding member and past National President of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and was also a founding member of the Mexican American Bar Association. In the late ‘60’s, he served on the El Paso Civil Service Commission and helped bring more Hispanics into the El Paso Police and Fire Departments as well as making it possible for hispanics to be added with a check box marked “hispanic” on nationality on job applications, like blacks, they are now a minority entitling them to be considered first over a caucasian for employment. THIS is why I am against illegal immigration. They are hurting American hispanics who must support families in a normal cost of living and have a right to expect more than minimum wage on the books. But illegals undercut them willing to work UNDER the TABLE for less. Its not that Americans dont want the jobs. Even in a strip club. How can a “clean dancer” make an honest living earning 20 dollars a table dance legally (no touching), when the illegal hispanic dancers are performing oral sex in the corner for 5 bucks a song? Eventually clean american hispanic dancers leave and go elsewhere. Illegal Mexicans are not harder workers for less money ONLY they are stealing away regular paying jobs available and turning them into LOW paying jobs that a hispanic American cannot afford to feed his family in America and provide a nice apartment for them to live in. That illegal takes their wages back to Mexico where it can do so much more with. Most of these illegals Trump wants to send back to Mexico. ALREADY go back and forth to Mexico. I remember a boyfriend rancher I had. he would ONLY HIRE ILLEGALS because he could pay them less.

          But I am off track. My Uncle Albert, Armendariz served as an administrative judge for the Immigration and Naturalization Service. He was then appointed to the 8th Court of Appeals of Texas, which means he helped legalize Hispanics. Now that they are legal, how will they survive?

          The GOP IS SCARED TO DEATH OF TRUMP MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. How can Trump even tell us what his plan is until het GETS INTO THE WHITE HOUSE and assesses all the damage done. Trump will bang heads together fire people and he will turn over every stone to uncover the truth. He will go after Hillary. Within 1 month TOPS he will report back to us and give us the truth and he will be transparent. HE will want people helping him, he will honor those who deserve it and he will fire those who are slackers. He has a big enough ego that he will HAVE TO BE GREAT IN MAKING AMERICA WIN! He is the ART OF THE DEAL. But he will be DEALING FOR US. NOT AGAINST US. Please vote for Donald Trump. He is a phenomenon, unlike anything we have ever seen before or ever will se again, at least not in this lifetime. Rubio and Cruz had seven years to stop Obama and they could not push through a single initiative or bill. Our borders are insecure so they FAILED. Its time for TRUMP! Seize the moment.

      I am glad TRUMP screwed up the scripture. It gave me hope that he was not a religious zealot in disguise. TRUMP PRESIDENT 2016

  • the suck ass part is that HL is one of the best importers of Chinese made junk in america. i hate to say it, but i can always find stuff i want there. not that i go anymore, but i did before i knew they were haters, and i loved it there. the sale bins were the best.

    but these days, i’m glad to see this asshole again. getting involved in all the ways that won’t lead to what he wants.

    and let’s start doing our jobs, too. which is: gay republican voters? it’s time for you to wake up, shut up, or stay home. or get in front of the lines to the ovens. your choice. 2% increased turnout will make an important difference in states where votes are actually counted.

      Sorry to hear that Dan. You are not living life if you are investing all your money and time in a GOD. What on earth makes you think God would have a bunch of men right scripture for him, not women. and order for killings and sacrifices of even a baby lamb. Sounds awfully primitive and barbaric.

      • Dan

        I think you missed the quotation marks and the sarcasm of how it’s a fake quote attributed to David Green. But thanks for your judgement. I’ll value it as much as I do your reading skills.

    Just pointing out the serious lie in the reporting.

    Hobby Lobby didn’t just objected to mandated “abortion-inducing” drugs. They objected to paying for basic contraception. The Right has long characterized every chemical contraceptive as an abortifacient, and this just takes that as a given, but any way you look at it, it’s a lie.

    But then, World Net Daily.

    • boatboy_srq

      Trump doesn’t give his money to This-Church-We-Designate-As-The-One-True-Church, you mean. It’s far more specific – and mean-spirited – than just not giving to God.

  • MikeBx2

    When Trump becomes the nominee, they will all do an about face and justify why he’s ok. Romney’s religion was a cult until he was running against the black man. Suddenly, Mormonism was perfectly acceptable.

    • just a girl

      ITS TRUE! YOU ARE RIGHT.

  • KnownDonorDad

    I don’t get it, why didn’t he endorse Cruz?

    • Cruz isn’t tall enough to be seen over the counter. Rubio found his platforms and can now reach the top shelf.

    • Cruz isn’t pretty enough to fill his dreams at night like Rubio does.

  • Yet another reason to sue their asses out of business.

  • Belief in god isn’t a necessary requirement for a secular job.

  • Davester

    Has anyone actually seen someone shopping in a Hobby Lobby? I guess they can balance it with low overhead: in any particular town, they are always seem to be found in the most downmarket, dingy strip mall.

  • BobSF_94117

    So, I assume this endorsement was before Rubio started making dick jokes.

  • Gianni

    If Trump is really smart, he should start ending all his appearances with a statement giving thanks and glory to God. The religionista will go bonkers with glee.

    • just a girl

      TRUMP WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SLEEP WITH HIMSELF IF HE DID THAT.

      • Gianni

        I would really like to see him do that and show the trumpeteers how pandering is really done.

  • just a girl

    Pushing religion on America is what the problems in our world stem from. I am a conservative. I am an atheist. HOW DARE ANY OF YOU SHOVE GOD DOWN OUR THROAT. Maybe if you men had to following a bible written up entirely by WOMEN and had to drop to your knees everyday and pray to a Goddess rather than subscribe to a bunch of scripture authored by males you might be atheist too. How long did we women go without voting? Do not tell me God is a male form and that your god said men were the leaders. Thats male testosterone in rare form. Furthermore you men are always the ones who started slavery, wars and running the entire government. Not one woman president to speak of. DONALD TRUMP FOR PRESIDENt 2016. He is not a religious fanatic and we like it that way. Rubio will LOSE!
