I read a current event article titled “Swiss Airline May Have Dropped Christian Chocolate Company over Its Pro-Life Stance.”

  1. I’d hardly call this anti christian or intolerance. It stands to reason that a company who advocates against peoples God given right to live as they choose via homosexual relationships, would not get support from a company that hires all people regardless of sexual orientation.
    I’d call it discrimination, but as the case of the U.S baker has decided, it’s not discrimination to discriminate.
    I can just see all those who have been truly persecuted and murdered for Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ Himself rolling their eyes in disgust as first world christian cry out as if this is persecution.
    One side fights to simply be able to live their lives, the other side fights to remove such rights furthering the discrimination.
    The world acting like the world. There’s nothing set apart here.
    I long to go back to the days long before I knew anything of evangelism and it’s doctrines. But as we both know, you can’t go back, we can only move forward.
    I’m a little surprised you shared this.
    I’m looking forward to you sharing from your heart again, the things pertaining to Jesus Christ. I do also enjoy the bible commentary, but blogs like “The tock had moved” now that’s encouraging.
    Blessings

    • Hi Stephen, I thought the comment by the CEO of the company, where it was stated: “I understand it if people value a woman’s right to choose more than an unborn child’s right to life. But I ask for understanding for my opinion,” Johannes said. I’m allowed to have a different opinion.” I’m thinking that where the LGBTQ community is asking for tolerance or understanding for their opinions, that they should also be willing to have tolerance or understanding for those who hold differing opinions. Unfortunately, on far too many cases ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE, tolerance for the other sides perspective or opinion, is sadly lacking. No, I think intolerance is the right word and you think it isn’t, and I can tolerate our difference of opinions. Blessings Stephen.

  2. “Swiss Magazine Beobachter, says the contract may have ended because the chocolate maker has long supported pro-life rights and marriage between a man and woman.
    Swiss Airlines also employs many members of the LGBT community, the magazine reported”

    and then this,

    “Läderach chocolate company’s CEO Johannes Läderach is also president of the Swiss branch of Christianity for Today. The group advocates for the protection of a Christian life and education.”

    Not even sure why abortion is mentioned in this article as it doesn’t seem to concern anything other than the whiny christians.

    I don’t see anywhere in the blog post where the chocolate company is saying the a christian isn’t entitled to his opinion. So no, intolerance is not at play here. Discrimination possibly, but it’s been deemed legal thanks to a christian baker in the usa.

    Tolerance
    capacity to endure pain or hardship : ENDURANCE, FORTITUDE, STAMINA
    2a : sympathy or indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting with one’s own
    b : the act of allowing something : TOLERATION
    3 : the allowable deviation from a standard

    Discrimnation:
    prejudiced or prejudicial outlook, action, or treatment
    racial discrimination
    b : the act, practice, or an instance of discriminating categorically rather than individually
    2 : the quality or power of finely distinguishing
    the film viewed by those with discrimination
    3a : the act of making or perceiving a difference : the act of discriminating
    a bloodhound’s scent discrimination
    b psychology : the process by which two stimuli differing in some aspect are responded to differently

    You’ll have to excuse me if I don’t think that whining about those who whine fits into the cause of Christ or anything pertaining to The Kingdom of Heaven

    Matthew 11 came to mind as I was writing this response,
    “16But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, 17And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. 18For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. 19The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.”
    Jesus is not referring to the world here.

    I can tolerate our differences, but I believe that as ambassadors of Jesus Christ, we should act as He would. The cause of Christ is not reflected in said blog entry.

    I completely agree with your statement, “Unfortunately, on far too many cases ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE, tolerance for the other sides perspective or opinion, is sadly lacking.”
    The difference is, one side of the fence is the world, the other is supposed to be followers of Jesus Christ.
    Have a great weekend Bruce.
