Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2012-173, Chic-Fil-A Boycott Boycotted

I don’t get to eat at Chic-Fil-A much.  They are just beginning to expand into the People’s Republik of Kalifornia.  There are none near me so I had to drive over a hill, through a valley and across a freeway to get to one yesterday to celebrate the boycott of their business.  I was really looking forward to some chicken nuggets and I was going to try their buffalo sauce this time.

Alas, I could not even get into their parking lot.  It was jammed.  And this was a large parking lot that was to provide parking for several other national chain stores.  I bet those other stores were a bit unhappy with the boycott.  I had to park far away and walk.  At the store there was a long, winding line. 

I know that these were people there to support Chic-Fil-A, not to protest.  How did I know?  They were polite and orderly.  They were smiling and talking to people around them.  No one was screaming and yelling.  Although a few needed haircuts, none needed baths or lessons in manners.  I did notice that there was one protestor there.  He was the one the news media were talking to.  At least I assumed he was a protestor.  I can’t see our media wasting their time talking to real people.

My wife called me from the east coast to say it was the same there. 

As the cows of Chic-Fil-A say, “Eat more chicken.”  One of the great things about Chic-Fil-A is that their chicken is lower calorie than the other chains that sell fast food chicken.  Tastes great, lose weight, fight fate.  And support a company whose only sin is to close on Sunday.
