(ChurchLeaders) Popular arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby has generated an uproar for an ad it ran on the Fourth of July. The Hobby Lobby ad featured the text, “One Nation Under God,” quoted Psalm 33:12, and gave various examples from American history to support the idea that the United States is a Christian nation.
“The July 4th ad features the American flag and Psalm 33:12, ‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,’” said the company in an announcement on its website. “The full ad includes quotes from former presidents, Supreme Court justices, Founding Fathers, Congress and others. Each quote emphasizes the relevance of God and the Bible in the fabric of American life.”
