Columnist Rod Dreher had a thought-provoking essay in yesterday’s Dallas Morning News about the importance of Lent. About how abstaining–in his case, from eating meat–for a certain period each year can be good for the soul, etc. At one point in the piece, though, he vows that after Lent is over and meat is back on his family’s table, “it will be meat raised by Christian small farmers in the Dallas area …” Huh? Who cares if the farmer that grows your food is Christian or Jewish or Muslim or–God forbid–atheist? Does it taste better if the farmer prays the rosary or speaks in tongues? Would Rod feel better if only Christians read his columns? Come on.
