Columnist Thomas Schaller is consistent if nothing else in his convoluted and irrational thinking about Dan Cathy's view that that God defined marriage and men should not try to redefine it ("Chick-fil-A head has a right to speak, not to be taken seriously," Aug. 8).
In deriding Mr. Cathy's reliance upon scripture, Mr. Schaller says that if you rely upon what the Bible says about marriage, then you must accept incest as being OK.
Both the Old and New Testaments teach about marriage and the proper relationship between husband and wife. Genesis 19: 31-35, however, is merely a report of what happened between Lot and his daughters. In reporting that incestuous event, in no way does the Bible condone incest as a practice to be followed.
If Mr. Schaller had continued reading his Bible, he would have found that the offspring from these incestuous acts became two very wicked nations, none of whose members were allowed to enter the Tabernacle.
Mr. Schaller states that although he enjoys Chick-fil-A, because of Mr. Cathy's reliance upon scripture concerning marriage, he has eaten his last sandwich there. Although I disagree with the support of gay marriage by the CEOs of Starbucks Coffee and Ben and Jerry's ice cream, that will not stop me from buying and enjoying their coffee and ice cream. The stance of their corporate leaders on marriage has nothing to do with the quality of their products.
