Hooray for local columnists!

Our local humor columnist Larry Alexander had this to say about a group in Lancaster protesting West Coast Video for renting adult videos:

Believe it or not, this country was founded on on the ideals of freedom and tolerance...

Overall the protest is pretty pointless; I'm sure it dissuades no one from going into the store who wasn't going in to start with. In fact, the protest could have a backlash and draw attention to the adult films inside the store: "Hey, honey! Grab the kids. We're going to Left Coast Video and rent some porn."

The video store protest is symptomatic of America's increasing love affair with minding other people's business...

I know I'm sticking my foot into it here, but being a Lancaster county native, I've spent a lifetime watching people try to foist off their beliefs on others. They tell people how to live, how to dress, how to vote--and that the only true interpretation of the Bible is their own.

In fact, Scripture is often invoked as justification for poking one's nose into the lives of others. In doing that, though, we conveniently overlook the verse in Matthew that cautions against pointing out the speck in someone else's eye while overlooking the log in our own.

It's God's way of saying, "Mind your own business."...

And if you still don't get this column, reread paragraph 1.

Need I say Larry is a member of a local UCC congregation?
