"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Huffington Post contributor Domenick Scudera began his piece by mockingly proclaiming: “There is no reason to go to church anymore. I can get my dose of religion and values by driving through my local Chick-fil-A!” He then targeted the company for daring to profess its Christianity: “The next time I order myself up a Spicy Chicken Sandwich Deluxe and those yummy Waffle Potato Fries, I hope my server will share some biblical wisdom with me. I’ll have a side order of Deuteronomy, please!”
Scudera ignored the fact that Christianity is not merely doctrine – it is a way of life. Christian owners will not force their religion on their workers and customers, but they will express Christian values in their company policies.
But such niceties were lost on Scudera, who instead turned his guns on traditional marriage: “When Mr. Cathy says that Chick-fil-A is very supportive of the “biblical definition of the family unit,” to which definition is he referring? I have found several in the Bible. Abraham, David, Jacob and Solomon all had multiple wives. Is this what he means? There are also examples of husbands with concubines in the Bible.” Read more: here
Scudera has revealed his bigotry toward Christianity. As with all people who find reason to hate all that Christians believe in, I have no doubt he wouldn’t be mocking Mohammad, his anti-homosexual teachings or his numerous wives. As for beheadings, that falls under ‘personal’ and no doubt, can be dutifully ignored too.
According to the blustering Scudera, it’s somehow “offensive” for a private company to uphold their religious values. But, isn’t it the Federal government which closes on Christmas Day? Is that offensive? Do Scudera go to work… all alone at Huffing-Puffington?
As for his foolish comment regarding “Abraham, David, Jacob and Solomon” . . . these were NOT Christians, living in ‘Christian times’. They were Jews, Mr Schudera who were sinning against the Creator God and disobeying His commands not to participate in ‘multi- wives’. And yes, they did relieve ‘discipline’ (but for the life of me, I can’t figure out why any man would do such a thing? I certainly would never desire multi- husbands… one is more than enough trouble).
So if you want to rail against Abraham, David, Jacob and Solomon, might I suggest you take your grieves to a Jewish owned establishment who closes on Saturday.
Like the Boys Scouts of America, PRIVATE companies and organization, private clubs and groups and those pesky Christian citizens have the right to make their own determination on when to open their business or doors. If this display of respect toward their Christians beliefs is something so repugnant with you . . . pleeeease, find Deuteronomy on your own and just stay away.
