Hope Is On The Way?
The, um, ?buycott? has probably gotten a lot of businessmen thinking, though.
Same sex marriage is so far out of the ballpark that Cathay's remarks didn't refer to it. Nor do Cathay's remarks refer to legal issues - they refer to personal choices, not what laws society should pass, and they are a call to better heterosexual behavior.
This brand of Christianity knows it is out of the mainstream, and embraces the call to be in this world but not of it. It doesn't expect to prevail legally.
In other words, the chain is not open on Sundays, but doesn't campaign to make other businesses close on Sundays. Same for marriage. Divorce except in cases of adultery is out, but that's a personal message, not a legal campaign.
The culture gap here is so huge that it says something about us, and especially about the outrage community and its minions in the press.
I find it amusing that the hippies' accusations of "fascism" turned out to be true, though not perhaps in the way they imagined in 1968.
I'll ask again--where are all the cool kids moving to if things don't turn around soon?
