What Can Taco Bell Teach Us About Diversity?

So with other political issues going on today...

War on Christmas
War on Religion
War on Drugs
War on Marriage
War on Terrorism
War on Women

...who knew a Taco Bell ad could encourage those of us who feel disenfranchised by our own "Routine Republic", not in changing up our breakfast habits, but our habits for how we treat others?

Should RFRA Opponents "Boycott Indiana"? - Part II

I wrote a post yesterday, "Do Christians Have the 'Right to Discriminate'", about why I think the RFRA is the theologically wrong direction to go and why I think Christians serving customers that they don't agree with is not a violation to the practicing of their faith.

Today, I wanted to point out a few reactions by the opponents to the RFRA that have responded in a way that I think will be just as harmful to Hoosiers as the RFRA will be to Hoosiers.

Do Christians Have the "Right to Discriminate"? - Part I

I came across this blog post recently, which responds to the RFRA ("right to discriminate") bill in Indiana. The point is correct (despite the unhelpful headline), but the examples are hard to take as valid examples because they mostly focus on the Old Testament. I get why the post would focus on books like Leviticus and Deuteronomy, as many Christians arguing against homosexuality seem to hover on these books, but Christians do not view things through a monolithic lens.
