Not content to be a constant thorn in our side by demanding imaginary rights, gay activists have targeted a Chick-fil-A in Pennsylvania for being bigoted. Chick-fil-A’s sin, according to the gay activists? They promised to donate chicken sandwiches to an upcoming marriage conference in February.
Yes, apparently the gay lobby can’t handle the franchises being generous towards those who actually believe marriage is only between one man and one woman. (I think this is more of that civility that Obama spoke about on Wednesday night. See here for more details.) Read about it at Townhall.com and here.
I hope Chick-fil-A doesn’t skip a beat in making their donations to those whom they support. I hope they let the term “bigot” roll off of them like a compliment. In other words, if we are going to be accused of being bigots because we stand for that was is right and just in the eyes of God, then take it as a compliment. I’m tired of those who cower whenever the term is bandied about by those on the left. (Perhaps someone should come up with a picture of a badge that we can display whenever we are called bigots by the left — an irony of ironies because they are so bigoted themselves.)
BTW, CEO Don Cathy did state that the corporation values all people and have made many contributions over the years. You can see the video at the Townhall.com link above. Allow me to also say that all people do have intrinsic value because they are made in God’s image, even gay people. But that does not mean that we sanction or approve of their sin. As Christians, we are to stand for the Light of the World, with His light, which is His truth. No where does the Bible ever sanction homosexuality or even hint that there is such a thing as “gay marriage.” God defines marriage early in the Bible and human history: between a man and a woman.
In fact, He goes on to say that this union is what is meant by mankind being in the image of God. Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. This is why homosexuality is labeled as “an abomination” to the Lord. Those who practice such acts are abusing the image of God in them (Leviticus 18:21-23). It is interesting that this sin, which is an abomination, is so closely linked to idolatry. The two go hand in hand because those who practice this sin have their pleasure as their god, not the living and true God of the Bible. He is to be our pleasure and all-in-all, nothing else.
The point is that we should not back down from our positions just because some leftist sinner calls us a name. Chick-fil-A needs to continue espousing those beliefs that the company was founded upon and not let some immoral group of people persuade them to do otherwise. Remember that the Word of God says that God’s wrath rests upon these people, and that they are debased and immoral. Since this is the case, we should not be surprised that their view of things, especially that which God has ordained such as marriage, is warped and debased as well.
The best thing that Chick-fil-A and all Christians can do is continue to stand for the truth and not buckle under the politically correct posture trying to be foisted upon us by those like Obama and the gay lobby.
Side Note: If we do a Bigot badge, the acronym stands for “Being In God’s Only True Son). Someone will have to come up with a BIGOT badge… with a cross on it.
