Wardroom Telephone Fahrenheit

The Pumpkin administration has gradually worn off a lot of my capacity for WTFery at the news coming from the Right Wrong.  So I was glad I could see a new news story from the super-wacko side of American politics and think, Oh that is just too f*ed up to be real.  It can't be real.  Can it be real?  Holy crap, it's real.  It's kind of a delicious process.  I have missed it.

Anyway, here is what did it for me.  Hobby Lobby has been sued by the DOJ for hoarding Mesopotamian antiquities.  You remember Hobby Lobby, don't you? You should - from one of the worst Supreme Court decisions since Dredd Scott.  They get to encode their religious nut-jobbery into their HR policies.  So they have Scalia's legal hall pass to deny any women unfortunate enough to work there access to birth control.

Wanting to see if they could take that to the next level, they decided they could buy stolen Iraqi cuneiform tablets for some gag-reflex-testing thing called the Museum of the Bible that will open this year in Washington, DC.  Because of course it will.

Do they think Raiders of the Lost Ark was a documentary?

the Nazi angle kinda fits, don't it?

Seriously: Christofascists literally do not think laws apply to them.
