Rant & Raves for Friday, November 16, 2012

The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — I want to thank the person in a white PT Cruiser at Bojangles on Tuesday for paying for my lunch. I will pay it forward. Thank you again.

I would like to take a moment to rave about the owner/operator of Chick-Fil-A on St. Augustine Road, Charlie Crews. In the year and a half I’ve been eating there, I can tell you he is a man of honor, character, and integrity. He loves the Lord and it is very evident in how he runs his business and he has certainly earned my respect.

We can order anything on the menu including a kid’s meal if that is all we want to eat. You cannot be forced to order a meal that is more than what you want to eat or can afford. Be thankful that you have customers because without them you wouldn’t have a job.

After the past years of voter fraud, lack of ID support for voter identification, military members votes not being counted or allowed. Seems to me that this voting procedure is in the immediate need for change.

In regards to the ranter about kid’s meals, a lot of people don’t order full-size meals because it is just too much. That is the reason we have so many overweight  people in America because the meals are portioned to the biggest. It is not because we are cheap.

To the poster who said people who order off the kid’s meal are cheap, did you ever stop to consider that some of us struggle with weight issues and are trying to avoid the temptation afforded by the oversize portions in many restaurants?

Those who are dissatisfied about the way tithes are used and you think the pastors are living lavish lifestyles, that pastor will have to answer to God. The tithes are to be used for the church’s needs such as missions, expenses of the church and the needs of others. Meet with church officials, ask questions and don’t assume.

So let me get this straight. It takes big church buildings to feed the hungry? I guess Jesus didn’t know that when He fed 5,000 people fish and loaves, and he never had a building fund and he never took up an offering. Big buildings don’t feed the hungry. They feed the ego of some religious superstar that is  nothing like Jesus Christ.


To the ranter complaining that schools not collecting money from high school games, where do you think the money from ticket sales goes?

Now that the question has been put forth, I’d like to know what happens with the money made from high school sports. Where does it go?
