Have you ever been compelled, either through a public appeal, or by your own conscience, to boycott a particular company or product because of the owner’s political persuasion of theological beliefs? Throughout the years, I’ve been called upon:
1 – to abandon Disney movies (fine…I never really liked that rebellious little mermaid anyway!)
2 – to reject any product made by Johnson & Johnson (hey…who needs baby lotion, Tylenol or Band-Aids??)
3 – to avoid, at all costs, purchasing Heinz ketchup (no great loss…afterall, I prefer the tanginess of Brooks!) and…
4 – to refrain from drinking Starbuck’s coffee. NOW WAIT JUST A MINUTE! This is getting to be a little ridiculous, don’t you think? Before you know it, we’ll be confined to consuming that which our own gardens produce and all manner of feasting, fun and frivolity will be strictly forbidden! Surely this calls for deep theological reflection and analysis.
