I have been silently watching the Indiana fiasco until today. As one who finds comfort in the promise of the Noah rainbow and freedom in the pride flag rainbow, I am beyond annoyed that this is even a THING. Maybe I've watched too many episodes of "Scandal", but I wonder if it might not even BE a thing.
It seems so ridiculously beside the point in today's world that I wonder if it's a red herring to get the fishes fighting the loafers.
Today I broke my Facebook silence and shared a Christian essay coming out against this bill. I "liked" it because it pointed out a glaring over sight in the blind guide who supposedly champions this cause. If they speak for Jesus, they got the wrong guy. Jesus didn't turn anyone away for their lifestyle. Last I read He only turned away folks who CLAIMED to know and speak for Him.
So with that reasoning, nobody will be shopping in their own store. In fact, if we have to earn the right to be treated with dignity we are all doomed. I know I am for sure, at least a week a month. And the rest of the month I'm so proud of my good deeds that I am doomed for my self righteous heart those weeks too.
Any given hour any given day we would be turned away from shopping. Can you IMAGINE how hard it would be to plan your errands? I'm quite certain my dry cleaning would never be picked up.
So...I'm thinking the timing of this nonsense is too co-incidental to be an accident. This is a trick of the REAL Christians to T up the whole Easter message. (See what I did there?) The admittance fee to the cross of Christ is the same for all and never changes even after you decide the message resonates with you. And unlike the business of xtianity, where there is a "sin of the month club" - I'm pretty confident we are ALL getting it wrong as often as we are getting it right (and usually just when we finally think we ARE getting it right). In fact, any Christian business owner worth his salt would put a sign in front of his establishment requiring sinful behavior. Otherwise nobody but Christ Himself will be able to shop there.
