"Eat Mor Chikn today!"

There were no homeless folks under the bridge today to share those sandwiches with so I shared them with family.
I will stand with those who stand for Godly principles.

Visit a Chik-Fil-A near you and buy a sandwich.

I intend to be there with Gospel tracks on opposition or protest day. Anyone know when that will happen?

Someone posted on Facebook that GLAAD was supposed to be showing up at Chik-Fil-A's on Friday to display public shows of affection. I haven't checked to see how accurate this is however.

I see the entire news media system is acknowledging the success of this "appreciation day."

I'm wondering if certain mayors of some cities are feeling some heat for hasty remarks about banning new Chick-Fil-As?

In years gone by in the rural country side of America when the pastor came to the home for dinner generally the food of choice was chicken. Fresh chicken, by the day the chickens would be in the yard pecking around & by night they went to the chicken house to roost.

And of course when the preacher came it was fresh fried chicken, usually killed on Saturday, & it was always very good. Today's world does not know the taste of good fried chicken, with today's chickens raised in chicken houses in 5 to 7 weeks it has changed the taste somewhat.

If a few politicians would have just shut their mouths none of this would be going on. Now the homos and lesbians want to have a "kiss in" at all the Chick-fil-A's. I wouldn't even want to watch straight people necking at the place let alone the queers.

On the Chick-fil-A Front of the Culture War
By Patrick J. Buchanan
Friday - August 3, 2012


Two weeks ago, Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-fil-A, an Atlanta company famous for its juicy chicken sandwiches, appeared on "The Ken Coleman Show" to air his biblical belief that those who champion same-sex marriage are risking divine retribution upon us all.

"We are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'" said Cathy. "I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."

Speaking of the company his father started after World War II, Cathy went on, "We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives."

With 1,600 restaurants and 50,000 employees in 40 states, Chick-fil-A is among our fastest-growing food chains. Obedient to the commandment, "Remember thou keep holy the Sabbath day," Cathy closes his outlets on Sundays.

Reaction to his remarks has been little short of hysterical.

Mayors Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, Thomas Menino of Boston and Edwin Lee of San Francisco said they no longer want Chick-fil-A in their cities. "Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values," says Rahm.

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray says there's no place for "hate chicken" in the nation's capital. Boycotts of Chick-fil-A, its expulsion from campuses and "Same-Sex Kiss Day" at local outlets are planned.

Rush Limbaugh, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and Sarah Palin have come to the defense of Cathy and Chick-fil-A, and on Wednesday scores of thousands of loyal patrons dined at outlets in solidarity.

What does this battle tell us about which way the tide is running in the culture war? If intolerance is a mark of rising faiths and movements, the news is not good.

For consider. Chick-fil-A does not discriminate against any patron, and after Cathy's remarks, the company issued a statement that, as Paul Gottfried writes, reads like something out of the Department of Education.

Said Chick-fil-A's PR office, we "treat every person with honor, dignity and respect -- regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender." Nor have charges of systematic civil rights violations in hiring or promotion been leveled against the chain.

What, then, brought down the firestorm of abuse on the company and its president as homophobic, intolerant and bigoted?

Answer: It is simply what Cathy said and what Cathy believes.

The homosexual rights revolutionaries can no longer tolerate the public expression of beliefs, held since the time of Christ, about the immorality of homosexuality -- beliefs still taught in Christian schools and preached in Christian churches. Those who profess or promulgate such beliefs are to be shunned and subjected to social and economic sanctions.

What is astonishing is that we are not talking here about the expression of Nazi ideas, but of teachings about the spiritual and social consequences of homosexuality embedded in our country's own Old-time Religion. In the more progressive precincts of America, the retelling of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the lessons therein, is apparently now a hate crime.

Remarkable is the change in society we have witnessed. It was not 10 years ago that the Supreme Court declared that states could no longer outlaw private sexual behavior between consenting adults and tossed out the anti-sodomy laws of 17 states.

In his dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote that the court had "taken sides in the culture war" and "largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda." This decision "effectively decrees the end of all morals legislation" and makes same-sex marriage a logical result, said the justice.

Scalia was right. Consider how far we have come since.

While homosexual marriage has been rejected by voters in all 31 states where it has been on a ballot, it is being imposed by state legislatures and judges. Now we have the spectacle of a public caning of a private citizen for expressing religious beliefs held by perhaps 100 million American adults.

What is behind the rage, other than a hatred of Cathy's Christian beliefs and a determination to see them stamped out?

As the individuals attacking Cathy obviously reject his biblical beliefs and consider them absurd, what are they afraid of? Mr. Cathy is not some fascist about to seize power, but a socially conservative businessman.

Indeed, not until this year has a timid Democratic Party decided to endorse homosexual marriage in its platform. In 2008, Barack Obama was still for traditional marriage.

If the Republican Party has not gone wobbly in the culture war, it will take up the challenge of that Democratic platform and make homosexual marriage the social issue of the fall election.

The GOP might just drive a wedge through the Democratic coalition and send Obama down to defeat. But if the Tampa Republicans are unwilling to fight the culture war, culture warriors should look to themselves.

Your correct, if the mayor & that alderman of Chicago had kept their mouths shut, instead of spewing hate from their mouth, this would not have grown legs as it did. And to think, they had no legal recourse to take against Chick-Fil-A. Of course liberals democrats do not care about legalities.

Liberal: I am all for an open mind. If someone wants to be gay, that's their peroggative. Everyone should be free to express themselves. Free speech, it's the 1st Ammendment, you know.

Conservative: I disagree with homosexuallity. The Bible says that it is a sin.

Liberal: HOW DARE YOU QUESTION ME, YOU IGNORAMOUS! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?! WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO JUDGE PEOPLE?

Conservative: ...Didn't you just say everyone should be free to express themselves?

Liberal: You are so close minded, it's disgusting! I am now going to trash everything you believe and your morals and that is okay, but if you say one thing bad about me I am going to sue you for libel!

It's a sad, sad world. Be not discouraged and continue to spread the Gospel. Give them the message. If they reject it, it's on them. If they receive it, praise God! Don't let the majority get you down. One soul saved out of a thousand is still a victory for Christ!

If they should be free to express them self as you say, why is it that Christians tries to battle them on the political front, trying to make laws against what they want to do, that is suppress their freedoms, take rights from them, or that is make laws to force them to live by God's laws? Yet suppressing their 1st Amendment rights, don't we just harden their hearts? By trying to suppress their 1st Amendment rights politically does not that drive them to want to suppress our 1st Ammendment rights? Them in the end it will be carried in front of the Justices, & will it not be them that decide this issue?

What if we Christians did this?

What if we lived a quite & peaceful life praying for our leaders giving thanks for all men while quietly going about doing the work that God has given us, of course that would be carrying the Gospel of Jesus to the lost sinners letting the Holy Spirit do its part?


1Ti2:1 ¶ I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
1Ti 2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

For the most part I agree with you. However, what if we took a slightly different approach? What if we looked at the example of Paul and the other Apostles, and instead of simply quietly going about our business, we were publicly and boldly proclaiming the Gospel message? The Apostles didn't bother getting wrapped up politically in anything, but they sure let everyone know that they had to repent and turn to God!

Much of Paul's time in the spotlight was because he was arrested, & he used it to his advantage, to proclaim the Gospel while showing that he was innocent of the changes.

They were under a very unfair corrupt government that had power to do as they please, yet they never lobbied against that government trying to change laws, trying to make the lost obey the laws of God, & obeyed the government as long as it did not cause them to disobey God, no they just went about trying to win souls to Christ so that hearts would be changed.

And they did not have near the freedoms we do, yet it seems they spent lots more effort, time spreading the Gospel. Some have said, & I just about believe it, when the Christians freedom is suppressed, God's children work much harder in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
