We live in an angry world that demands that you agree with a political issue, even if it repels you or goes against your values, or suffer consequences and interruption of your life if you do not. It has become impossible to live a simple and peaceful life without being dragged into issues. One can no longer remain silent, neutral or even peaceful. You must enter the fray with support for that cause, or see your business and your very life sabotaged. Such is the case of a Christian business, Chick-Fil-A.
Chick-Fil-A is an American success story. Founded by Georgian entrepreneur, Truett Cathy in 1946. The family-owned chicken sandwich chain is one of the country's biggest fast-food businesses. It employs some 50,000 workers across the country at 1,500 outlets in nearly 40 states and the District of Columbia.
The company generates more than $2 billion in revenue and serves millions of happy customers with trademark southern hospitality.
Regular contributor, Rev. Ed Berkey (retired) forwarded this incredible information that just broke in a column by journalist/columnist, Michelle Malkin
Chick-Fil-A is run by devout Christians who believe in strong marriages, devoted families, and the highest standards of character for their workers, all of which are objectionable to the Socialist Marxist Democrats—a stand that nobody of my era would have ever imagined.
The company's generous philanthropy arm, WinShape Foundation, supports foster-care, scholarships, summer-camp and marriage enrichment programs. And to encourage families that work for them, the Chick-Fil-A stores close on Sundays so that workers and their families can spend the day with each other, go to church, worship and rest.
The company's alleged atrocity? One of its independent outlets in Pennsylvania donated some sandwiches and brownies to a marriage seminar run by the Pennsylvania Family Institute which also opposes same-sex marriage. That gesture of kindness by Chick-Fil-A was about supporting families and community, not about opposing 'gay-marriage' or anything else.
The squawking turkeys flew in from every direction and the vicious pecking began. Homosexaul Facebook users organized witch hunts against the company on college campuses. Petition drives on websites demand that the company change and disavow their standrard, yes, they are saying that they must disavow standards of decency. And the company has been hysterically labeled, 'anti-gay.' The goal is to drive them off college grounds and out of their neighborhoods, to put them out of business, period, all in the name of "human rights."
The 'gays' have no concern that 50,000 people would be out of work and the philanthropic work would no longer be if they went out of business, all because the homosexual Socialist Marxist Progressives demand a green light to pursue their uncontrollable lusts.
The bullying has become so bad that a homosexual instructor for Los Medanos College in Pittsburg, California demands that students support 'gay marriage', or he will fail them in his English 101 class which is required for graduation.
That instructor is also the organizer of the LGBT (lesbian,gay,bisexual, transgender) club on campus with posters up everywhere inviting students to attend with this invitational statement: "Gay, Straight, Bisexual, or just Curious? Come to the LGBT meeting at…..."
This misguided instructor begins each class with a tirade against leading ministers, Christianity and Christians in general. Two female students who are Christian said that they almost had a nervous breakdown because of his abusive talk. They, along with some other students, withdrew from the class and took English 101 at DVC (Diablo Valley College) to earn their credit for that class so they could graduate.
The news just broke that the State of California (of course) just passed a law in Sacramento MANDATING that a class of LGBT history be taught along with complete orientation of that lifestyle.
The creeping Socialist Marxist take-over has brought violence to society to the extent that nobody is safe anywhere, on streets, parking lots and now, even baseball games. Bryan Stow was a San Frnacisco Giants fan. He went to a game in Los Angeles when the Giants played the Dodgers. He proudly wore his Giants jersey to the game. Two diehard Dodgers fans attacked him in the parking lot after the game and beat him so severely that he suffered a skull fracture and is still in critical condition. Even if he lives, his life will be altered.
The Marxists have worked hard and long to bring America to this unmanageable point in her history. They have brought a gang mentality to everyday life where you can be attacked and killed for simply wearing clothing someone doesn't like.
What is even worse, the world has lost its sense of humor. One now must weigh every word spoken or you can be sued, or even jailed. It's called, 'political correctness'.
Nowadays, there are scores of people looking for ways to be offended so they can cause havoc, find an excuse to loot and murder, or sue and make money. This is what Socialism has brought us to. HOWEVER, we still have time to stop this madness.
This appeal is to all pastors, all religious leaders. It is time to take back the moral authority which the church has abdicated. Alexis deToqueville, seeking the secret of America's success in so short a time came here and then wrote that he had talked to the farmers in the fields, the factory workers, the shop owners and people on the streets, "But", he said, "it was when I visited her churches and heard the fiery sermons on righteousness preached from the pulpits that I understood. America is great because she is good. If she ceases to be good, she will no longer be great."
Pastors, take a clue from history. Get back to preaching righteousness and instruct your congregations to seek and live a holy life. Be an example to the communities and cities where you reside. The power of our country that rose so quickly—its astonishing financial success, order of government and society along with such an efficient military that America became known as the superpower of the world. And we were secure.
It all started with the church. This country, under God, formed and grew successfully. Then the church blew it big time by watering down it's message and preaching a social gospel. And we are now facing the most perilous times in our history. The atheists should consider that their war on God has now made the world treacherous for them and their children as well. Is this really what they want? Will this be considered victory for them?
As for the homosexuals who are endorsing the Progressive, Socialist agenda, this should be considered. Once implanted, Islam will become the one world religion. The first thing that will happen once that takes place? Every 'gay' person will be arrested and publicly hanged. Exactly as they are doing it today in Muslim countries. The way has been paved for this to happen in America. Or rather what WAS America.
Readers, please stop and think!
In the meantime, Rev. Berkey suggests that we all support Chick-Fil-A."If you aren't fond of chicken sandwiches," he suggests," then try their Ice Dream (Ice Cream) and their Sweet Tea."
