    Hobby Lobby To Forfeit Smuggled Iraqi Antiquities


    Hobby Lobby, the Oklahoma-based chain of arts and crafts retail stores, has agreed to pay a $3 million fine and forfeit thousands of ancient clay tablets and clay bullae that were smuggled into the United States with improper labels.

    Interesting article about The Bible Museum--set to open this year in DC--that the artifacts were intended for. http://www.newsweek.com/2016/04/15/h...dc-444752.html

    Personally I see it as Christian propaganda. And I say that as a Christian. I don't think religious ends are well-served by shoddy academics or theft and misrepresentation of artifacts.
