Religious debate: "pork rinds"

Thanks to the makers of this film, and for bringing it to my attention.


  1. Steve,
    Thanks. That was brilliant! I agree with the young man.

  2. For a year or so I partnered with a person who had a shop in the downtown. We took shifts selling stuff. On my shift, a parent came in to berate me for selling a knife to his 15 year old. I apologized for my partner's "error", and it blew over, but when I buttonholed her later about it, she was very defensive. Her telling comment was "If I didn't sell it to him, somebody else would have". It seems the same logic can be used to sell drugs, needles, guns and pork rinds.
    So you don't need a religious context to face a moral quandry.

    (I resolved it by posting a sign.)
