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 2012-175, Chic-Fil-A Boycott about Nothing

I am sure you are aware of the boycott that wasn’t.  There was a lot of ranting and raving about the hater who condemned homosexuals and homosexual marriage.  There is only one big problem that seems to have been lost in the noise:  He didn’t say anything about homosexual marriage.  I did not hear the interview but from what I can read all he did was say he was married to the same women and thanked God for His support in his life. 

So this is about hating Christians, not about hating homosexuals.  Chic-Fil-A has been in the crosshairs of the Progressives (liberals, left, communists, socialists, Democrats) for a long time.  Here is a successful business that stays closed on Sunday to honor the Lord.  It sounds like this owner has actually read his Bible.  That is what they are hating about. 

Don’t get confused by the hype.  Homosexuality is only one issue in the conflict and it wasn’t even mentioned by the hatee.

Is the company worried?  Yes, in the sense that no one likes to be attacked.  No, in the sense that it will damage their bottom line.  Who is a family restaurant going to try to please more, people who have children or people who can’t without scientific invasive techniques?  A homosexual couple can now adopt.  They can have artificial insemination.  They can live in a fantasy world.  The one thing they will have a hard time doing is have genetic children.  This is one reason why it is scientifically silly to consider homosexuality a trait passed on by evolution.  It is a dead end street.

And did you read about the company that makes Muppet toys.  They have told Chic-Fil-A that they can no longer give away their products.  Who will suffer from the Muppets withdrawal?  How many gays and lesbians buy Muppet puppets?  Maybe they can do for the Muppets what the rest of us have been doing for Chic-Fil-A.  Let me announce it here:  If you are a hater angry at Chic-Fil-A, buy a puppet.  Please stay away from the Chic-Fil-A locations, it is hard enough to get in to buy food now.
