Hobby Lobby Fined for Illegal Importations

Loved this.

"A major US arts and crafts company has forfeited thousands of smuggled ancient artefacts from Iraq it had bought for a Bible museum.

Christian-owned firm Hobby Lobby has agreed to hand over the smuggled items and pay $3m (2.3m) in a settlement.

US attorneys say it violated federal law by importing thousands of clay tablets and tokens as "tile samples".

"Developing a collection of historically and religiously important books and artefacts about the Bible is consistent with the Company's mission and passion for the Bible," Hobby Lobby said in a statement.

How much do you want to bet that none of the items have anything to do with the Bible.
