My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Is Nothing Sacred?

Ever have one of those nights where you wake up and can't get back to sleep no matter how hard you try?  Well, I did.  Tonight/today, is one of them. In bed by 10:00PM and wide awake by 3:00AM, AND I CAN'T GET BACK TO SLEEP!  I have tried everything I know, cup of Sleepy Time Tea, watching infomercials on the tube and finally my best but last resort, lying on the floor in front of the wood stove like the cat.  Ain't nothing working.  The result, Greg Gutfeld on FOX and t his post.

I am not normally a watcher of Mr. Gutfeld, I like to be sleeping when his "Red Eye" show is on.  However, tonight was, of course the exception.  Mr. Gutfeld and his guests were discussing a Doritos commercial that was apparently to be played during the Super Bowl.  Since it hasn't happened yet, the Super Bowl, this commercial hasn't played and may not be. So why the controversy?  Somehow the commercial  that didn't make the cut made it to the airways and the airways on FOX have made it news.

I invite you to watch the FOX News people discuss this commercial.  Oh yes, why are they discussing it on FOX News?  Well, apparently it uses the Holy Communion as a selling point for Doritos.  Clik here, watch the discussion and see what you think.  Then come back here for my response.  About 10 lines down.  No cheating, I don't want to influence you.





So I lied, its only six lines down. Personally I just quit eating Doritos, PERIOD!  I am sick and tired  of being singled out because I believe in God and hold certain ideas and traditions sacred, Holy Communion is one of them.  I am writing to Frito Lay, the parent company of Doritos at this address, clik here,  and explaining my small but symbolic protest of their tasteless commercial. I wish you would do the same and pass this on to your friends and family.  I know of a Senior in college that has more class than the marketing people at Doritos.  His name is Andy Dalton and you can read about him in my previous post.  He, unlike Doritos/Frito Lays, is a real class act!

I've seen the commercial, was tempted to toss the monitor against the wall because of it.

IMO the only reason this travesty didn't make the cut for Super Bowl material was the backlash by folks like yourself. Those of us holding traditional religious beliefs can take nothing for granted now.

Is nothing sacred? Nope. Nothing at all.

Another note. Frito Lay supports Planned Parenthood, for that reason alone we've stopped eating any of their products.

Subvet, Thanks for the info on Frito Lay. I didn't know that. Scratch them off my shopping list!

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
