“Good” Christians are calling the recent anti-gay marriage statements of Chick fil a’s president free speech or the actions of a good man standing up for traditional family values which are claimed to be based upon Christianity. Yet I am having a very difficult time believing that Jesus, the man famous for earning the ill-repute of the Pharisees for ministering to sinners with love and compassion, would approve of Mr. Cathy’s comments. Honestly who thinks that the man who taught “do unto others as you would have done to you and love your neighbor as yourself and love the sinner and hate the sin,” would instruct his followers to attack and degrade, even in a passive way, the very same people he himself loved enough to die for?
This is the reason we are commanded to “judge not lest we be judged.” For how will Christians, famous now for attacking the Gay community, ever be able to share the Gospel with them? What has happened to the vast witness of Christianity, commanded in the Great Commission, when the ENTIRE religion now has stood up to be counted as bigoted and hateful towards a community within our midst? Are Gay lost souls not worth the same in Heaven as Strait lost souls!? Is the best way to witness to them to attack them and their way of life…or wouldn’t it be best to show them love, kindness, compassion and charity in the EXACT same way as did the Christ? Mr. Cathy, my advice to you is to go back to what you are good at–making chicken–and stop trying to see past the log in your own eye to remove the speck from your brother’s.
Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve is still devaluing our currency which continues to impoverish a nation, the Congress is still spending our grandchildren into debtors slavery and lining their own pockets with both hands, the President is still fighting wars in which he was not authorized to engage, the Supreme Court goes on allowing the wholesale destruction of our Bill of Rights while we get all up in arms over the codgerly comments of an aging bigot who has grown past the stage of caring who is hurt by his words. This despite the God he claims to serve admonishing us to take care of the things we say lest our mouths spread evil and hate even inadvertently. But I digress. The point is if it is true that this nation is going to Hell in a hand basket, as is often claimed by many Christians, it is not because of the Gay community or even the nation not being right with God. No, we stand upon the abyss of Empire and Tyranny ascendant because WE THE PEOPLE WON’T KEEP OUR EYE ON THE ISSUES THAT MATTER OR OUR STEEL UPON THE THROAT OF THE GOVERNMENT WHICH HAS USURPED OUR AUTHORITY UNCHECKED.
Please wake up before it’s to late to fight for Liberty and our Children grow up slaves in the land once founded on Freedom.
