Hobby Lobby doesn't want to cover its employees' morning-after pills. Chick-fil-A backs "traditional marriage" as opposed to the same-sex variety. Then there are Forever 21 and In-N-Out Burger, which print Bible verses on their bags.

Who knew so many major U.S. corporations were so devoutly religious?

Well, Forbes did, since it tracks not just the performance of public and private companies, but the interests and proclivities of their founders and CEOs — like evangelical Hobby Lobby billionaire David Green's pet project, the Museum of the Bible, set to open in the next year or two.
