Corporate Person Builds Bible Museum in Godless DC

A well-known Corporate Person, Hobby Lobby, is building a Museum of the Bible in a former warehouse near the railroad tracks in Southwest DC. Once the Washington Design Center, it was built as the Terminal Refrigeration and Warehouse Company in 1923.

Museum plans call for completion in 2017. Expect a ballroom modeled after Versailles (mentioned in the New Testament, maybe?), a theater, a replica of Westminster Abbey, holograms, and a restaurant serving biblically themed meals. Oh, and some historic books and 40,000 artifacts from the Green Family collection.  The museum has the same advisor as the Creation Museum, where dinosaurs romp with cavemen.

Hobby Lobby CEO Steve Green believes that our nation is based on biblical principles, and he has enough money to share this misconception with an unsuspecting public.


“Hobby Lobby’s Steve Green has big plans for his Bible museum in Washington,” Michelle Boorstein, Washington Post

“The Hobby Lobby President Is Also Building a Bible Museum for Over $70 Million,” Nora Caplan-Bricker, The New Republic

(Hearing notice, 300 D Street SW)
