Hobby Lobby Did Not Fire An Employee For Getting A Divorce

Hobby-Lobby1

(PCM) Despite whatever rumors you may have seen circulating, it turns out the Hobby Lobby did not fire an employee for obtaining a divorce without company approval.

The story which was posted on The Daily Currant claimed that 33-year old Hobby Lobby employee Jennifer Silverton was terminated after she filed for divorce from her abusive husband of six years. The story claims that Silverton was terminated for reasons of “moral laxity” after upper management learned about the divorce proceedings.

The story goes on to say that Silverton never expected that filing for divorce would affect her job and was told it was for religious reasons.

While Hobby Lobby is certainly no stranger to controversy when it comes to some of their business practices and Christian values, they previously sued the Obama administration to avoid being forced to provide health care that provided contraception coverage for its’ female employees. That move caused Hobby Lobby to recieve a ton of negative backlash.

However, it appears that this story regarding Silverton being fired for getting a divorce is completely fabricated. The Daily Currant is a satirical news publication and majority of their stories are completely made-up and posted to create a buzz or make a joke.

People need to pay a bit more attention to the source of their information before jumping to conclusions.

More Strangeness From Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin

Chris-Gwyneth

(PCM) So you thought calling their split a “conscious uncoupling” was weird, wait until you hear what Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have done now. The recently ‘conscious uncoupled’ pair took part in a separation ceremony during their holiday in the Bahamas. Did you even know something like that existed? Don’t worry, neither did we!

According to several sources close to the couple it has been revealed that they took part in a spiritual healing ceremony on the beach last week to assist with preparing them for their ultimate divorce and the troubled times ahead.

As part of the ceremony the pair read from the sacred Kabbalah book Zohar, lit a fire, used stones to symbolize their continuing concrete relationship and threw pebbles into the sea to represent their “wandering spirits”. The ceremony was performed by Kabbalah Rabbi during the couples “break-up moon” and ended with a parting kiss.

The pair arose early at 5am each day of the their holiday for couples counseling sessions and meditations. They are attempting to make their split as amicable as possible, especially for the sake of their children. They have agreed upon a 50/50 split of their assets, as well as, joint custody of their two children Apple and Moses.
