All-day breakfast at McD’s: Mcdonald’s All-Day Breakfast
Published: September 2, 2015
All-day breakfast at McD’s: Mcdonald’s All-Day Breakfast, McDonald’s, the company that invented calories, has shocked the world by announcing that on Oct. 6, its restaurants will start serving breakfast all day long.
That decision is, of course, an abomination.
Like many Americans, I believe in traditional breakfast, served deliciously until 10:30 a.m. as God, and later Ronald McDonald, intended. After that time, it’s unnatural to eat eggs, hash browns or anything that has been McGriddled or hotcaked.
For proof, look no further than the Bible, Exodus 16:12, which says: “I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them, ‘At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God.'”
In the morning you will be filled with bread! Meat comes later, with the obvious exception of bacon and sausage, of course. (Sometimes you have to read between the lines.) That biblical verse makes it clear that breakfast and dinner are separate, and I’d sooner starve than violate my deeply held religious beliefs by consuming a post-10:30 a.m. McMuffin.
I realize my opinion might seem old-fashioned in an anything-goes age when most young people think it’s “A-OK” to eat a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit at 4 p.m. A Tribune report on the company’s breakfast announcement noted that McDonald’s “consumers and shareholders … have clamored for it for years.”
LeeAnn Richards, an Arizona franchisee who led a task force that studied the all-day breakfast concept, said: “It’s nice when you can give people what they want, what they’ve been asking for.”
Maybe it’s nice for you, LeeAnn Richards of Arizona, but my beliefs cannot be swayed by public opinion, and they certainly won’t be changed by Big Burger’s cavalier redefinition of breakfast or by human belief in the separation of church and steak.
The question is: Will people of faith, the ones charged with serving scrambled eggs at immoral hours, stand up to this assault on religious liberty? I have hope that they might, thanks to the actions of Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky who has refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that makes “issuing same-sex marriage licenses” part of her job description.
On Tuesday, Davis defied a federal court order and again denied marriage licenses to gay couples, saying she works under “God’s authority.”
“It is not a light issue for me,” Davis said through her lawyers. “It is a heaven or hell decision.”
Amen, sister! It’s crucial that you keep the government that pays you from imposing its will on the faith you are willfully imposing on everyone else. (That’s definitely in the Bible somewhere.)
