This is a weird story but it neatly describes the clash of quite a number of values that can get layered on top of the beer in the glass:
Pity Paul Roof, the Charleston Southern University associate professor who claims he lost his job after an image of his insane, four-pronged beard showed up on a beer can from a local brewery. The professor was competing in the "freestyle" category of a beard contest in New Orleans when the photo above was taken, and in 2013, Holy City Brewing began using the image on the label of its terribly named Chucktown Follicle Brown beer.
Can we list them all?
=> Paul Roof: sad to say but the poor guy just wanted to (i) grow a weird beard and (ii) get a little recognition on a holiday weekend away from home. Sadly, he selected a look like a scorpion was emerging from his head yet he shares little of the blame as he was unaware of the label;
=> Charleston Southern University: you gotta do what you gotta do - but you know that they were not looking for any profs who selected the look of one with a scorpion was emerging from his head to teach the kids. Yet... they told him it was "not representative of a Christian environment." which is a little weird when we think of this face and this face. I call CSU on the mixing of cultural norm with Biblical norm.
=> Holy City Brewing: I am less than sympathetic for the other parties involved in this one. They used a guys's image without consent or payment. One of those "craft community" deals. They take. Someone else pays. Classic. By being users, they have created pain and hardship for others. A good smiting would not uncalled for.
=> A beard contest in New Orleans: who the hell runs beard contests? Just as there was no drink driving before the car, there would have been no legal dispute between Prof. Roof and CSU had someone not come up with the stunned idea of a beard contest.
=> Jesus: The Son of God likely cares not. He had a beard. Yet he never made it look like a scorpion was emerging from his head. Hint. Not a big fan of using styling gel to the face. Styling gel, in fact never appears in the Bible at all. Nor a fan of using the wrong image in the wrong way. I say he is a neutral in this matter... but keeping an eye on it.
Reasonable outcome? Holy City reimburses the reasonable legal expenses for both Paul Roof and the Charleston Southern University while the folk running the beard contest pony up for any lost wages Paul Roof may have suffered. All four parties sign a settlement document that requires each to not be so idiotic in the future. Jesus reserves right to smite some or all. Further details as they become known.
