Does it make a difference where I buy my hamburgers?

Faith Driven Consumer is a new program that helps people buy from companies whose ‘values match ours’.

Is this a good idea or a bad one?

Does it make any difference where I buy my lunch?  From McDonalds or from Chick-fil-A?

Here’s some from their website:

Faith Driven Consumers are people driven to action.  We stand up for our beliefs in the most powerful place to demonstrate who we are – the marketplace. We all make consumer choices every day, but how does your faith affect these choices? Have you ever considered the practices and viewpoints of the companies you buy from? How do they recognize and treat your preferences? We live in a world where a small group who want to deny us our convictions can drown out tens of millions of believing, practicing, committed Christians.  It’s time for a change.

Faith Driven Consumers choose to carefully, constantly aim the dollars we spend directly in support of the companies whose values and behaviors match ours! This is action every one of us can take, every day. We can advocate for and grow values-driven businesses all over America. Whether you are looking to change the world or simply for a place that is comfortable for you, Faith Driven Consumer is your resource.

What do you think?

    This is a great idea. Perhaps they can make a list of which companies sacrifice their meat to idols…

    Yes all Christians should stay away from businesses that aren’t Christian. Then we wouldn’t have to be around those terrible non-Christians and have to worry about building relationships with them and being a witness of Christ to them. We should all just band together and eat fried chicken like good little Christians. And if we want a burger we will just pray that God will make Chick-fila start serving burgers or that the chicken and biscuit would turn into a hamburger (Or at least taste like it).

    Not really a fan of this type action, but as someone who has spent a large part of my life in commission sales, it is frustrating when people from my church come and buy from a salesman who will spend his commission at the casino or on drugs. Sometimes it might make sense to find out who you are dealing with, personally and as a business.
