A lot of controversy has been started by the owner of Chick Fil A. Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that the company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.”
Now according to the Bible a marriage is two heterosexual people joining together in holy matrimony. That is according to the Bible. The Bible that people still swear on on a court of law. The Bible also says not to judge. Dan Cathy’s comment did not promote people judging or the company judging. He was saying he personally believes the Bible and as a company they try to promote that. He did not say he tries to bash someone who chooses differently. He did not say he thought gays were bad, evil, or not good people.
People are so quick to quote the Bible and say God is love and God wants us not to judge. That is very true. BUT people forget that the Bible is filled more than with those two verses about His love and telling others not to judge.
The Bible is filled with truth. According to the Bible, homosexuality is a sin. So is eating too much, swearing, drinking in excess, idolatry, dishonoring your parents, cheating, lying, and other various things. If Dan Cathy would of said, we are guilty of believing that lying is a sin nobody would of blinked an eye because most people agree with that statement.But because Dan Cathy commented on the definition of family, people are all in uproar.
JC Penney recently got Ellen Degeneres as a spokesperson for their company. Other than a small little group of nutso’s, most conservative people did not stop shopping at JC Penney’s. People buy clothes their not philosophies. Honestly, you don’t know how a lot of company owners view marriage. For all you know a company you adore may be donating money to the KKK. Let Dan Cathy have his free speech and as long as his company doesn’t break any laws—continue to eat their chicken if you like it.
My personal view- homosexuality is a sin, but my sins are no worse.
