When Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy came out in support of traditional marriage he came under a barrage of criticism. Now conservative Christians are coming to his aid and sticking up for him. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has organized a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day for Aug 1 where he’s encouraging Christians to go eat at the restaurant.
This whole gay marriage controversy over Chick-fil-A is making me hungry. Not for their delicious nuggets (though those are phenomenal) but rather, it’s making me starve for the good old days where you could just go to any business you like and have absolutely no clue what the politics of the chain was.
Today, our retail shopping is starting to become partisan just like our politics. I feel like I have to check a scorecard before I go to the mall and shop. Isn’t partisan politics enough? Do I now need to check where Burger King stands on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?” Or what Taco Bell’s position is on Roe v. Wade?
For example, I now find out that Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos is supporting same-sex unions. Does that mean I shouldn’t shop on Amazon.com anymore? On the flip side, what if you’re a liberal who LOVES those Chick-fil-A nuggets. Should you look elsewhere?
These are legitimate questions with no easy answers.
As for the Chick-fil-A controversy, it’s pretty amazing that we’ve gotten to the point in our country where someone takes a stand for traditional biblical values and HE is the one chastised for it.
That shows you how far the gay rights movement has progressed. The political question for conservative Christians is this: How do you go about stopping the gay rights agenda in its tracks? Is it possible? If so, how? Leave your comments.
