Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.”

Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day: Shaharaim and Hushim, Baara & Hodesh (1 Chronicles 8:8-9).

And Shaharaim had sons in the country of Moab after he had sent away his wives Hushim and Baara. He had sons by his wife Hodesh. …

  • Once again, the need for Chick-Fil-A to give discounts for polygamous families. “When you buy 19 combo meals you get the 20th one for just one penny!”

    But afterward Shaharaim left the country of Moab, because it had become a washpot. he removed thence to Edom, but was hit by a shoe, and died.

    Since it still wasn’t cool to poach another man’s wife/concubine and some guys seemed to have them in dozens … what did all the other guys do? Or does this explain a lot of the violence in the OT?

    That’s what I always thought. All those unmarried men roaming the countryside, stirring up trouble, ready to hand for any king or warlord who numbered his own wives in the plural and children by the dozen.

    The Chick-fil-A Poem of the Day:

    “Gulf Memo”

    Tell me the way to the wedding
    Tell me the way to the war,
    Tell me the needle you’re threading
    I won’t raise my voice anymore.

    And tell me what axe you are grinding
    Where the boy on the bivouac believes,
    What reel you are unwinding
    For the girl in her bed who grieves.

    While behind a derrick’s girder
    He watches the sinking sun,
    He asks what he’ll do for murder
    And what he will do for fun.

    Will you read him the ways of war
    His Miranda rights in sin,
    Will you tell him what to ignore
    When he studies your discipline?

    He dozes off—but he shakes
    In a dream that he is the one
    Death finds abed and wakes
    Just as the night is done.

    Tell me what boats go ashore
    Riding the oil-dimmed tide,
    Red streamers and black in store
    For the boy with a pain in his side.

    And tell me where they are heading
    Tonight; now tell me the score.
    Tell me the way to their wedding
    I won’t raise my own voice anymore.

    – Stephen Sandy

    That’s beautiful.  Thank you.

    Violence can also explain polygamy – a society that fights a lot of wars is likely to see a lot of its men killed, resulting in a marriage market where women noticeably outnumber men.
