They are all the same. But, at least, the others don't rub their Christianity in your face like this.
They can go to fill in the blanks for hat I care. We should first be outraged at the cra@'y salaries they probably pay their workers. Frankly I do not have a stronger antipathy for any other sort of businessmen than for thOse parading their supposed Christianity. As if it's possible to be Christian In any meaningful sense and be a billionaire or millionaire in the first place; hopefully the revolution will take care of this sort first.
What evidence do you have (assertion is not evidence) that CFA's employees receive crappy salaries/wages? And if they are, why are you not donating your money to supplement their income?
BTW, I'm eating CFA right now. Mmm, mmm!
We had a parishioner who was a regional manager for them. She thought she had a good job.
That's where his values are:$7. 65/h
I didnt see Regional Supervisor on that list. How does the pay there compare with McDonalds and Burger King?
Is that what really happened? They close on Sunday's and the CEO said he is against Homosexual Marriage.
But if a company stays open on Sunday and the CEO says he is for Gay Marriage is that rubbing a secular agenda in your face?
Do Restaurants owned by Orthodox Jews that close on Friday Saturday rubbing Judaism in your face?
Well Cathy did say that Chik-Fil-A is run on Biblical principles...one wonders which part of the Bible paying-people-a-wage-that-is-impossible-to-live-on values comes from...
Third, why do people like you who think that the Bible should not be read as a scientific text should/must be read as an economics text? What part of the Bible dictates that any and every job must pay enough to live off of year after year?
And no job is better? It might come as a shock to you, but people open businesses to be in business, not to provide jobs (though they do that).
On the other hand, I don't think the central tenet of Christianity is "Every Man For Himself"
I read somewhere that there are two camps. There are the American Evangelical types who beleive in the above. Rugged individualism vs emphasis on Community, helping others..caring about others before yourself.
Individual salvation vs. we are all in it together.
You set up a false dichotomy. You can, and many do, be a rugged individualist and build up the community, help others and care about others before yourself. In fact, most American Evangelical types I know manage to do all of the above. Augustine's favorite parish, full of former Evangelicals continue to do all of the above. Evidently that is how they earn his envy.
as for every man for himself: nearly every job I've been offered told me how much I'd be paid for it. It it wasn't enough, I didn't accept it. It didn't come as a surprise. If I offered my services, I told them how much it would be up front. Sometimes I offered them for free, and was given something anyways. I don't find such things hard market principles to grasp.
