Is it Selling Religion?

Today I was reading an article that appeared in the Huffington Post entitled, 

The 11 Ways Forever 21 Is Selling Its Religion  

"The day when the ultra-religious views of Forever 21′s owners crept out from under their signature yellow bags and onto their shelves."

The article written by Rachel Kane tries to make an argument that Forever 21
, a retail clothing store is trying to somehow under handily share their religious views. Don Chang the owner of Forever 21, began putting the bible verse John 3:16 on the chains bag as a demonstration of his faith. 

 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

My question is what is wrong with that? 

Don't we have the freedom to talk about what we believe? 

Why is it wrong to put a verse on the bottom of a shopping bag?  I don't think it has had a negative effect on their business.

In-n-Out  and Chick fil-A both put bible verses on their cups. Their businesses are booming!

I applaud these businesses for preaching the word in season and out of season!

Her next complaint is that now there are crosses and clothing with Christian slogans on them being openly sold at the store. I am amused at the "openly"! Forever 21 never hid the fact their owners were Christians nor do they make excuses for what they believe. Why is this so suspect?

I might just have to go and buy something from Forever 21 to encourage them to keep up the good fight!
