In a problem reminiscent of the Western world’s all-too-often myopic view of the world, Doritos has made rainbow-colored chips.
Yahoo! News reports: “Doritos Rainbows are a limited-edition version of its Cool Ranch-flavored tortilla chips to show the chipmaker’s support of the LGBT community.”
The company writes — on the bags of chips — that “there’s nothing bolder than being yourself.”
Except that, there is.
With the rising, crushing refugee crisis in the Middle East (not to mention Africa), it’s becoming more widely known that Christians, in particular, are being persecuted, killed, and tortured. “Being yourself” as a Christian is a death sentence — or a rape and torture sentence if you’re a woman — in ISIS territory.
CNN recently reported that Muslims refugees threw 12 Christian refugees overboard in the sea, to their deaths, on a ship they all shared while trying to flee to freedom. So much for “being yourself.” When these Christians’ true selves were revealed, they were murdered for it.
And yet, despite the barbaric killing of Christians by ISIS and other violent groups around the globe, our brothers and sisters remain bold in their faith. Many refuse to deny Christ — Who they claim as the very essence of who they are. They suffer under unspeakable pain and torment and yet, they remain identified with the Savior.
If Doritos — and all of us — were to take a look around the world, we would see that these are the bold people. These are the ones who deserve our help, our funding, our aid. These are the ones who need the media attention, the hashtags, the news articles, the chip bags.
