This blog grows out of my conviction that every aspect of our lives is sacred and is to be nurtured and celebrated as a good gift of God. Most of the posts will be the sorts of things you would expect from a historian and worldview teacher, but some are likely to be a bit surprising. Since God created all things good, including all aspects of human life, everything is interesting and important from the perspective of a biblical worldview. Everything under the Sun and under Heaven is thus fair game here. I hope you find it interesting and enjoyable.

So let me get this straight 2: more rhetorical questions, this time about Chik-Fil-A

You mock Christians for trying to boycott movies and companies that they find offensive, but you’re good with trying to boycott companies owned by people you disagree with?

You know that attempts to ban books and movies increases sales, but you are surprised when your call to boycott Chik-Fil-A leads to its biggest sales day ever?

When private individuals call for boycotts of movies, it’s an attack on free speech, but when mayors and city council presidents call for banning and shutting down a business in response to something its president says, that’s OK?

You’re all in favor of choice, except for businesses that offend your sensibilities, which need to be shut down so no one can choose to patronize them? If they’re so offensive, why not let them go out of business due to lack of customers?
