What God Has Taught: Christian Places of Grace and Truth Are On the Move And Love (Almost) Everyone If They Read the Bible

The Hobby Lobby monster lives, and grows. Even as a Boston-area Christian college joined in a controversial letter to Obama by religious leaders praising our "blessed nation" where "all persons are created in the divine image of the creator and are worthy of respect and love" except can they pretty please still discriminate against LGBT people? - Hobby Lobby's Green family has announced their plan to build an $800 million Bible museum hard by the godless halls of Congress in hopes of telling the story of "a reliable historical document....that is like none other." Their creation of "a pulpit of sorts" just blocks from the National Mall is part of a larger effort by a family non-profit whose activities also include a bible curriculum for high school students. Green has warned that "this nation is in danger because of its ignorance of what God has taught," that "there are lessons from the past that we can learn from," and if we don't "our future is going to be very scary,” which we agree with, though we suspect he isn't talking about the lessons stemmimg from that pesky old idea of separation of church and state.
