Steve Green, the president of Hobby Lobby, the business that fought and successfully upheld religious freedom against President Obama’s ‘Affordable’ Care Act, is delivering another healthy dose of religion to Washington, D.C.
The Green family is bringing “one of the world’s largest private collections of rare biblical texts, objects, and artifacts” to the capital, creating the National Museum of the Bible.
Via the Conservative Post:
When the Green family, founders of U.S. retail chain Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., purchased their first biblical artifact in November 2009, they never expected to assemble in only a few years what is now one of the world’s largest private collections of rare biblical texts, objects, and artifacts.
Known as the Green Collection, the compilation of around 40,000 objects includes some of the rarest and most significant biblical texts and artifacts ever assembled under one roof.
Museum of the Bible will be an unparalleled experience, using cutting-edge technology to bring the Bible to life. It will span time, space, and cultures, inviting everyone to engage with the Bible. With three permanent sections and space for temporary exhibits, there will always be something new to explore.
The museum will be located just two blocks from the National Mall, and a mere three blocks from the Capitol Building.
The museum will open in the fall of 2017.
Perhaps if our Congressmen and women have to drive by the Museum of the Bible every day to work, they’ll remember that America was built as “one nation, under God.” They could certainly use a reminder every now and then.
