Random thoughts and ponderings to start the week...
Not much to say today... Just a reminder to show your support for traditional marriage by eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, August 1. If you've been living under a rock you may not realize that the CEO of Chick-fil-A made comments recently expressing his support of traditional marriage. Those comments have sparked a firestorm of hate from the Left. They have called for boycotts and some elected officials have even threatened to block the restaurant chain from doing business in their jurisdiction. So to counter this anti-Christian hatred please show your support by eating at Chick-fil-A as often as possible, but especially this Wednesday, which is the agreed upon date for a national show of support.

Continuing this theme here's an excerpt from a piece written by Pat Archbold over at National Catholic Register:
The mark of the beast (public allegiance to a faith opposed to truth who is Christ) as requirement to do business is not some far off prediction of the bible, it is today's reality. It is reality in Chicago, Boston, and so on.
If you believe in the Church's teaching on traditional marriage and by saying so publicly you foreswear that secular religion (which is opposed to Christ) which demands your allegiance, in the view of many people in and out of government, you forfeit your right to do business.
If you believe in the Church's teaching on abortion and contraception and you are inconveniently still breathing, you are no longer able to run your business in a way compliant with that belief.
All in the name of tolerance, of course.
The piece is titled The Mark of The Beast and Chick-Fil-A, and as usual for this author it is spot on. The whole post can be read here.
