This makes no sense. Since you're claiming that actions speak louder than words, and our actions should match God's love. But you're also claiming that an action of refusing to give money to someone misusing God's name is somehow...wrong?
Maybe I'm wrong. But I still say you're nomming chowder. Because it works both ways; you think companies don't mind boycotting so much and that it really doesn't show our faith. But how much faith are we showing people when we clearly show them that we don't really care what bad morals/sins their company is doing/supporting? I mean...we're basically saying it doesn't matter. Is that biblical? Not caring about who or what we support with our money?
Don't play the judgment card either, because I'm not saying those people are inferior to me. And I'm not claiming we should screech at people when they use it.
The point here for me is that...I get bone-weary of threads like these with the guy who's like "IT DOESN'T MATTER SINCE WORSE THINGS HAPPEN IN THE WORLD". Tell that to a doctor. Sure, the bleeding vein is more important and needs to be fixed immediately. But it does not negate the slowly seeping belly wound and little bits of dirty shrapnel in the victim. You know, the types of wounds that lead to infection, and end up killing the patient later since they were neglected? Those have to be fixed and cleaned too.Spoiler:Whoo...didna see that coming when I started that paragraph. That worked out nicely.
Can't ignore either issue, and the murder thing is probably pretty serious...but you can't really do what you're doing either. "Genocide is far more terrible than theft, so we can ignore it and move on in love". Both are promblems, and I also think the tearing down and trodding on of God's name in our culture to be a pretty bad problem.
Basically, you gave me a wedgie with your post and I felt the need to call you on it.

Wait I take that back, you'll irritate them.

Works both ways padre. How many genocides have you stopped?
