Mr Doug Wilson, who despite occasional fits of the iffy, periodically says wonderful things.
"Imagine you have been invited to dinner somewhere, and suppose you just can't get past the fact that your hosts are, apparently without malice, serving up carcinogens covered in gravy. Well, Jesus said that we had to take up our cross in order to follow Him. Your obligation is to die for your brother. At least in this case your obligation is covered in hot gravy."
(One of these days I'll do an actual post, cross my gravy-saturated heart)
