Hobby Lobby Releases Statement About Chik-Fil-A

This has to be one of the strangest press releases I’ve gotten in a while. Hobby Lobby International has decided to make a statement regarding Chik-Fil-A‘s stance on gay marriage. Hobby Lobby was founded in 1964 and is another company that’s identified as being founded on “Christian values.” Here’s their statement that comes from Debra Love, the President of Hobby Lobby International:

After numerous calls asking for comment, we believe that we need to clarify our position, especially since we are known as a Christian-based company. Our core values call for respect for each other, our customers and our suppliers and for us to treat others as we would best like to be treated ourselves. We believe that we must demonstrate love for our fellow man as we are called upon to do as Christians. We respect our employees by offering a workplace that is free of judgment and bias, and one that gives everyone an opportunity to succeed and grow.

The press release ended with

Hobby Lobby does not discriminate with regard to race, color, religion, gender, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability, sexual preference or any other basis protected by state or federal law.

Well, glad that’s cleared up….

    Okie-dokie then… Should we expect every Christian to make a press release about how they see Chick-fil-a?

      Yeah, it was an odd release.
