do as I say, not as I do, (it never stops)

A recent front page story in the Charlotte Observer featured news about Davidson College’s biggest donor, John Belk, the retired head of the well-known Belk department store chain and former Charlotte mayor, resigning from the Davidson Board of Trustees after a recent change in college policy that now allows non-Christians on the board.

Belk stores keeps its doors open on Sundays if I’m not mistaken.

Something about remembering the sabbath and keeping it holy comes to mind. I guess now that he doesn’t have to worry about donating all that money he made while running his stores, he can have his kids close the stores on Sunday.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
