Chick-fil-a

Okay. This will be a quick one and maybe it won't be so popular. But I have to vent just a little before I hit the road this afternoon.

I was watching the news last night when I heard this report. Chick-fil-a is catching grief because they supplied food to a pro-family group in Pennsylvania for a conference they were having. Pro-homosexual groups are furious and calling for Chick-fil-a (CFA) to change their policies.

How intolerant can the pro-homosexual groups get and how long will we stand by and allow them to be this way?

If CFA was donating food to the "Witches of Eastwick" you'd hear nothing but crickets from these groups. If they were donating food to feed dogs on the street, no one would care. But you allow an organization to support something that doesn't line up with the pro-homosexual policies and suddenly CFA is the target of all their wrath.

This isn't about what I believe (most of you probably know that any way). This is about this whole "tolerance" movement that wants to silence everybody but the people who support them. CFA is a privately held corporation. They do not discriminate in their hiring nor in who they serve at their restaurants. They do, however, just like any other organization, have a right to support whatever and whomever they choose without getting a black-eye from the media and pro-homosexual groups.

After all, isn't that what tolerance is all about?

I submit to you that tolerance is not what these organizations desire...it's control. They want to control what others think, what they do and who they do it for. Last time I checked, that's as intolerant (and two-faced) as any one can get.

But it's just another reason for me to find a CFA today and encourage you to do the same. It's the tolerant thing to do.

I agree. Tolerance today is respecting all opinions/actions. Its the non-excepting/alienation of anything to do with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of the World. CFA has continued to be bold in their founding mission to be a Christian organization, existing on truths and principles of the Holy Bible. I commend them for taking a stand in this fallen world and will continue to support their business. Besides, they have a GREAT chicken salad!
