Michael Brown writes for the Christian Post:
According to a headline on the popular gay atheist blogsite, Joe My God, “Hobby Lobby Goes Full Dominionist In July 4th Ad.” A viral tweet claimed, “Hobby lobby took out a full page ad in the Register-Guard this morning. Talking about how America should only be led by Christians. Absolutely frightening.”
I do understand how others would read the ad as advocating for a theocracy (which I wholeheartedly oppose) and as for claiming that only Christians should run for office (which is ridiculous). That is unfortunate, and that’s why it’s important for us to make clear that we are not seeking to take over America and impose the Christian faith on the nation.
What we do believe is that God’s ways are always best, and that’s why we advocate for biblical principles and seek to live by them personally. In the same way, others (such as atheists, agnostics, Hindus, Muslims, or secular activists) advocate for their own particular spiritual or secular worldviews and seek to live accordingly. This is all part of the fabric of our nation.
Read the full op-ed. In between the first two paragraphs excerpted above, Brown dissects the many quotes cited in Hobby Lobby’s ad and other tweets from my post. The tweet below is from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
Did Hobby Lobby really go ‘full dominionism’? FFRF holds Hobby Lobby feet to the fire.https://t.co/HR0F8KUl0x
