Monday Musings

A few random thoughts and ponderings to start the week...

Wow! My work just got extremely busy. Not much time (or energy) in the evenings to blog. Last week I really let it go. This week I hope to do better. Hopefully I'll have the next installment on the male-only priesthood.

Last week there was a lot of talk about the Chick-fil-A/marriage controversy. Some people got tired of hearing about it. That's perfectly understandable. I mean, it was certainly blown out of proportion by liberals in the first place. It never should have reached to the level that it did. Any business owner in America should be able to take a stand in favor of traditional marriage without raising all the hoopla that Chick-fil-A's owner did.

But in the midst of the controversy a few people tried to blow off the whole issue by saying, "It's just a chicken sandwich. What's all the fuss about?" One late-night comedian said that it shows how divided the nation has become when the most heated argument we have is over chicken sandwiches. People who were tired of the whole mess just wanted to joke about the sandwich and avoid the real issue - marriage. But that's like saying that the Boston Tea Party was just about tea. People who discount the Chick-fil-A phenomenon as much ado about nothing, are missing the symbolic importance of standing up against religious persecution.

Incidentally, a friend of mine went to Chick-fil-A today and reported back that there are still long lines and busy counters at our local restaurant. Good! Keep buying those sandwiches! Show support to a fellow Christian willing to stand up for traditional values.
