Chick-Fil-A: Private Opinion Exposing a Public War

On August 1 the country “celebrated” Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day by going to their local Chick-Fil-A restaurant and purchasing products sold there.  Why? Becuase COO Dan Cathy expressed a personal opinion that he believes in traditional marriage. While I appreciate Mr. Cathy’s stance on the topic, it is the response that his opinion has received that is cause for concern.  What would motivate tens of thousands of people across the nation to buy a Chick-Fil-A product, yet would vote for unrighteousness in our government at all levels 2-4 years earlier?  The answer I believe is as clear as the noon day sun:  Silent Pastors.

The churches in America – the “Black”ones especially,  have become unnerving silent in this last presidential election cycle until Mr. Obama came out in favor of Same-Sex Marriage.  This admission by Mr. Obama has forced the Church in America to finally take a stand on the issue of what God constitutes as holy.  In other words, the darkness of this world has painted the Church in America in such a small corner, it was forced to rise up and by their action get a little “dirty”.  Their action told the congregation that attends them that they are not  completely corrupt, but their existence does has some redeeming value.

The “congregation” responded on August 1st that we do not need professional clergy to speak for us, but that we can speak for ourselves and “vote” for righteousness with our dollars.  To which I would hope that their vote that was cast at Chick-Fil-A will translate into righteousness on Election Day.

  1. So you are saying that if people are informed and lead, they will do the right thing. Hmmmmm . . what a concept. Too bad pride gets in the way and common sense gets pushed out when it comes to these things.
