Good Thursday morning, everyone! It’s been a little while since I shared my thought on a Thursday, so here we go 🙂 Yay!
I just got back from a 45-minute walk with one of my daughters. At one point we jogged a little – downhill. I don’t jog very well – I jiggle, jostle, and jar. Let’s stick to walking, for now.
There used to be a day when companies would take pride in their products. Now is the day and age when companies put “pride” ON their products.
There are so many things that could be said about the rainbow-clad fat bomb that Burger King has introduced to the San Francisco area, things I’m sure you’d expect from a conservative Christian like me. There’s also a lot that could be said by those who hate the very existence of Chick-fil-A in response to nothing more than the owner’s personal beliefs, rants that can’t get through five words without using “bigot!” Well, I’m not going to go there.
Burger King is a business, people. Burger King doesn’t care a hoot about gays or straights, no matter how proud they are of their Whopper. It’s all about the money, folks.
On the other hand, Burger King’s Fernando Machado said of the campaign in California: “It showcases who we are as a brand. It shows how we, as a brand, believe in self-expression.” That’s evidently why they’ve changed their slogan from “Have It Your Way” to “Be Your Way.” Whatever… I will continue to be my way and stay away – who needs a 1300 calorie rainbow, anyway?
Unless you’re name is Jesus and you are from Mexico, Jesus was not a Christian. However, if you get your theology and history of religion from musicians with rose-colored glasses, then it would not be a shock to find out that Jesus was the first member of an all-inclusive, unifying, pluralistic, believe-what-you-will fan club.
Do you know why so many people are as messed up as Elton John (excuse me, Sir Elton) when it comes to theology? They don’t know the true Jesus. All Elton John would have to do is read Mathew 10 and John 8 to find out how in error his thinking of Jesus is.
Happy Birthday, America! Well, it’s only the third, but who cares?
