RE: Chick-Fil-A

I have a couple of things to clarify in my popular yet controversial “Something to Say about Chick-Fil-A post”.

 

#1. I DO NOT SUPPORT HOMOSEXUALITY

 

What I actually said:

…just be a person who has nothing to prove but that you love others. BUT DON’T TELL ME THAT WE ARE BEING CHRISTIANS BY GETTING TOGETHER AT CHICK-FIL-A AND HATING HOMOSEXUALS. We don’t have to agree with people to love them… 

 

What some of you read (apparently):

 …I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE. I SUPPORT GAY PEOPLE…

 

Look. Homosexuality is absolutely wrong according to God’s word the Bible. Romans ch. 1, as well as numerous other passages explicitly state that.

 

Homosexual relationships are wrong. I do not support the homosexual lifestyle one bit. But you know what else is just as wrong? Sex outside of marriage, adultery, and looking at pornography. Oh… and hating on gay people. Don’t be so quick to set a gay couple apart as nastier than that collection of websites you, guys, frequent when nobody is around. And don’t be so quick to say that homosexuality is more disgusting, girls, than those malicious, degrading things you say about the people you don’t like. You can insert the sins that you have issues with if these don’t apply to you. Homosexuality is not to be singled out as the “worst” of these sins. That is all I am saying.

 

#2. GOING TO CHICK-FIL-A TO SUPPORT CHICK-FIL-A IS PERFECTLY FINE.

 

I admit I MAY have been a bit harsh in this area. If you just went to Chick-Fil-A as a way to thank them for being AWESOME for standing up for their beliefs, good for you! I’m sure Mr. Cathy will do good works with his record setting sales.  Just don’t let that be the only kind thing you do this year… or month… or today.

 

So yeah, I was more talking to the gay-bashing, super-religious, close-minded people than you. You win at life. Congrats.

 

#3. YES, I SPELLED “CATHY” WRONG. SORRY. I’LL GO FIX IT.

One day he hopes to be a full-time novelist and blogger, but until that day comes he spends his time playing video games, eating pizza, and being with his soon-to-be wife. However, he has yet to do all three at the same time. Bucket list stuff, you know.

  1. And the word “weather”. It should have been “whether”. LOL! Good rebuttal or clarification article, Matt.
