Two common subjects on this blog are false statements made by theists, particularly many Christians, and the claims that the United States of American is a “Christian” nation. This July, a TrueChristian business, Hobby Lobby, took it upon themselves to again run a large ad in major newspapers on July 4th claiming that the US is a Christian nation. They used all sorts of quotes to support their point.
This year, the Freedom From Religion Foundation ran a competing ad. And just recently, they put up an interactive webpage that has the text from the Hobby Lobby ad linked directly to the evidence that HL’s claims are wrong. It’s a great resource on the false claims of Christian Nationalists and demonstrates how much they depend on deceit.
So much for a religion supposed based on truth. I’m glad I finally got out of it. The FFRF is kind enough to say HL used “creative editing”. I have no problem calling them intentional liars.
