Burns My Bacon: Religion in My Food

Sure, if I’m going to The Bread of Life restaurant in middle of nowhere, Pennsylvania, I might expect all of the menu items to be named after Biblical characters (the food is still strikingly good). If I go to Chick-fil-A I know I’m supporting a Christian company (Sorry, I really like those chicken nuggets)

But I don’t like religious propaganda when I’m not asking for it. I don’t want to open my eggs I bought at the grocery store to find scripture. Maybe it’s my fault for buying 89-cent a dozen eggs. But doesn’t the scripture quoted on my factory-farmed eggs come from the same book that tells us to treat our animals well? What is the point? Do they really think, as I make scrambled eggs, hungover as hell on a Saturday morning, that I will see this message and suddenly be enlightened? How many people say they found god inside of their egg carton?

  1. Religious propaganda and food can surprise you. There is a whole religious brand of cereal, Ezekiel something.

    I sense a trend.

    Indoctrination begins with a balanced breakfast.

  2. I’m with you. I hate when I see it on food packaging, shopping bags, frozen yogurt cups etc. Also, when it’s on the bottom of shopping bags and frozen yogurt cups, WHAT IS THE POINT??!

  3. Maybe it isn’t all about you. Scripture encourages those for whom it was written.

  4. If you’re shopping at Aldi, and I’m assuming you are since the eggs I buy there have scripture in them, get used to it. They’re as Christian as Chik-Fil-A.

  5. @diffy I only like it if it’s funny to me, and this does not have any cartoons of the rapture.

  6. This is new? In and Out has been doing it for years on their cups, etc.

  7. @Kat – I didn’t say it was new, just something that has showed up in my life lately, and bothered me!
