Okay So I am a christian and yes I am straight. I have some really awesome friends who some are gay, lesbian, and bi but I love them all the same.
This whole Chick Fil A thing is kinda getting out of control and I guess I can see both reasons why but everyone I think is pushing it way too far. So I was reading stuff on tumblr about it and some people I knew bashing other peoples opinions on the issue. Well everyone deserves FREEDOM OF SPEECH I mean its in the Constitution….
I personally don’t see what the huge deal is about the company saying they support traditional marriage.. Lets see there are many other places that support it but no one is bashing them. Forever 21. A christian place they have bible versus at the bottom of every bag. John 3:16 they came out saying they support traditional marriages. A very popular store same, like Chick Fil A is a popular fast food place.
Starbucks sends money each month supporting gay, bi sexual, and lesbian people organizations but you don’t see a bunch of people who believe in in traditional marriage boycotting the place. Never once (of my knowledge) has Chick Fil A ask anyone what are their views on marriage when ordering their food. “Hello welcome to Chick Fil A. Are you straight? That will determine how I treat you or if I give you food.” Or if you applied for a job there. “Oh lets see here you have some amazing fast food and cooking experience now tell me. Whats your view on marriage?”
Just the whole thing with people saying how the world has changed and not everyone follows the bible the way it was intended in the first place. Then pull bible versus out trying to prove they are right. First of all they have been pulling it out of the old testament… Its called the old testament for a reason…
The church and the people in it, well their main goal is to get be as close to God like as we can. But it is impossible to do. Nobody is perfect. I am not saying that as an excuse but its true we all have flaws that we need to work on. Also not everyone believes there is a God out there or just have different views. Thats okay. not everyone gets along, thats life. If everyone got along there would be no wars. We live in a world full of sin and confusion. But in those dark places you find out who you are as a person and how to find the light when you feel it is lost or alone.
Who cares about who you like? Everyone is going to disagree because that how the world was made. History always repeats itself so issues will keep being brought up. But honestly if you believe and are happy with the way you live your life why go out and make someone or a company feel bad for speaking their mind on what they believe? If the world was meant for every person to just be mean to each other and just cruel for someones honest opinion then we wouldn’t have been designed to feel guilt and pain.
Again this is just my opinion as a person who is witnessing many people being upset and getting angry over a comment. But did this person ever say I have and will continue to deny people their right to eat at a public place due to their views on marriage?
Everyone loves to challenge each other and ask questions to prove the other person wrong or to gain knowledge on the subject. Its apart of growing up and always trying to find the answer to the biggest questions “What is the meaning of life?” Who knows but I really doubt hating on someone is apart of that. Again just my opinion.
One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (NIV, Mark 12:28-31).
