The Gay Agenda's Intolerance Of Traditional Marriage

Even though I am outside the USA right now it the outbreak of a second Civil War in America seems to be global news. Chick Fil A President Dan Cathy decided to spew forth vicious hate speech against all homosexuals by stating his support for the biblical understanding of marriage! Don't you just feel the hate?

I make no secret of the fact that I love Chick Fil A and have always taken the principled stand to support them through regular visits to my local Santa Clarita store in southern California. Quite simply, it is a matter of mathematics:

Christian Values + Mouth Watering Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich = A Principled Stand

But what exactly were the hate filled words of Dan Cathy? Here is the explosive portion of his interview with Baptist Press that unleashed the firestorm of outrage:

Some have opposed the company's support of the traditional family. "Well, guilty as charged," said Cathy when asked about the company's position.

"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.

"We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy emphasized.

"We intend to stay the course," he said. "We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."

The roar of protest was immediate. Picketers were deployed to stand outside their local franchise and "spread their message of tolerance". The mayor's of Chicago and Boston pledged their commitment to shut Chick Fil A out of their cities because of it's intolerance. Great way to display your commitment to tolerance guys! Roseanne Barr launched an expletive riddled diatribe against the company (she has a way with words that is never worth repeating) declaring that anyone who eats (Expletive) Fil A deserves to get cancer.

Even the Jim Henson company, who brought us Kermit the Frog and the Muppets, has severed all ties with Chick Fil A over their hate filled intolerance and will no longer be supplying toys for their "kids meals". To add insult to injury, the Swedish Chef has now removed chicken from his menu, Animal the drummer no longer does his "bite the head off a chicken routine", and Kermit is now on the lookout for a new diversionary food for all lovers of frog legs. Even Miss Piggy is encouraging food lovers to boycott Chick Fil A and eat bacon instead!

But there has also been a backlash to the backlash with hordes of chicken lovers descending on franchises all over the country to send a clear message of their support. Chick Fil A reported their biggest day of sales ever. Clearly, the chicken sandwich has found itself in the center of the culture war on Christian liberty. Al Mohler commented in his blog just two days ago that:

The threats made against Chick-fil-A betray the principle of religious liberty that is enshrined within the U.S. Constitution. Civic officials in some of the nation’s largest and most powerful cities have openly threatened to oppose Chick-fil-A for the singular reason that its president openly spoke of his Christian convictions concerning marriage.

When Quinn, one of the most powerful officials in New York, announces, “I do not want establishments in my city that hold such discriminatory views,” is she also threatening the Roman Catholic Church, Orthodox Jewish synagogues and Islamic mosques?

They, along with evangelical Christian denominations, openly oppose the legalization of same-sex marriage. Cathy’s statements are completely consistent with his own denomination’s statement of faith and official declarations. He was speaking as a Christian and as a Southern Baptist, and he was speaking as a man who does his best to live and speak as he believes.

When Emanuel and Moreno tell Chick-fil-A to stay out of Chicago, are they audacious enough to deliver that same message to the churches, mosques and synagogues of their city that also oppose same-sex marriage? What do they do with the fact that their own state does not allow same-sex marriages?

This country is deeply divided over the issue of same-sex marriage, and the controversy over Chick-fil-A is an ominous sign that many of the proponents of same-sex marriage are quite willing to violate religious liberty and to use any and all means to silence and punish any individual or organization that holds the contrary view – a view sustained by the voters in 29 states by constitutional amendments.

It warms my heart greatly to see so many people coming out in support of a Christian man who runs a good business on Christian principles. I am concerned however, that this could spill over into a fast food franchise at the epicenter of a moralistic us against them contest. It is a gross Christian error to go to war against our mission field. And I'll say more about that later . . .

Let's just hope Cathy doesn't use gay chickens in his menu.

I must apologize in advance Cameron, because I may offend you with some of this criticism. This fascination you have with the homosexual debate is irrelevant in my opinion. There are no practicing Homosexuals in Jesus Christ so it is up to God to draw attention to them and judge them, not us. Moreover, the reasons that Seminary Professors, Preachers, and their flocks are not clothed in sackcloth and Ashes for this sort of sensationalism is that they are in it up to their chinny chin chin in other areas of immorality ... every single one of them over 18 years old, right from the pulpit, through the front row and down to the last pew...they are all in debt in some form chasing the "want it now" real estate, car, i-phone, or latest thing they can't afford - effectively acquiescing to the nation state's narcotic of debt money to maintain their precious lifestyle, all the while implicitly empowering their financial sector and government to confiscate the natural resources of others by sending battleships into the middle east to secure them and kill anyone who stands in their way, all so we can have our nice house, car, job, & buy cheap food at the supermarket, all of which are predicated on this value chain.
So rather than see this western paradigm for what it is, we in the church would rather focus on other matters of morality that give us a self righteous feeling of cleanliness, all the while conveniently acquiescing and saying nothing about the 800 pound gorilla in the midst because it suits our other aspirations, all the whilst (by association) inflicting death and anguish on all others throughout the world who are unlucky enough to live in a country where there is Oil such as Libya, Iraq, Syria, & Sudan. Tell me what the Lord Jesus Christ would say to the churches who are self righteously debating doctrine and sexual morality all the whilst being black as sin in the most important area of personal and community righteousness – that pertaining to money. The church is fully acquiescent to paper fiat debt based money and has abandoned honest weights and measures, Gold and Silver. If Homosexuality is an abomination, to God, so is the use of false weights and measures in money as it is not only fraudulent it also sustains the government / financial / military industrial complex who do the killing on our behalf so the system can be perpetuated, and we can maintain our economy, cheap food, and petrol. Behold I say unto you that every church building purchased with a bank mortgage has been done so on the privilege established through the shedding of innocent blood somewhere else in the world to maintain the purchasing power of the petro-dollar. As such every single church body, or churchgoer who has signed a mortgage promissory note has oil blood on their hands by association. This is not an exaggeration and I will guarantee you that the Lord Jesus Christ would call all these church goers hypocrites and find them all guilty, even if it is by ignorance, simply because God does not grant part righteousness with his atonement and sanctification, but full righteousness. "For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God" Therefore it is the duty of every professed Christian to sell every paper and other debt encumbered asset class in their possession and convert these into real money, (physical Silver), to quietly stand against the unrighteous who perpetrate this monetary fraud and the death machine it gives life to such that they are put out of business permanently. Slightly parabolic? Believe not? Behold, be believing by watching over the coming months the development of a new war and its atrocities perpetrated by the US and its allies to justify killing 1+ million Syrians & Iranians to liberate their oil so as to collateralize more western debt born money and perpetuate the financial system just a few more years to facilitate the harvest of the world’s wealth.

Will we hear any challenge relating to this from any Christian pulpit? Not much chance, because the church is acquiescent to the financial system legally with their tax deductions and Sstripends. Shame, Shame. In fact they will probably join in the chorus for the destruction of these Middle East nations because they “hate our freedom” or some similar rubbishy notion. The irony of it all is that these Middle East nations even though they are Muslim stand more righteous before God than Christian America in these matters. Condemnation here falls squarely on our seminaries and their graduates no matter what theological stripe, because they are all guilty in this regard failing to believe in and preach full righteousness, whole sanctification, whole regeneration, rather than a false gospel featuring part righteousness and its bedfellow false forgiveness, all the whilst questioning the morality of the unsaved whilst bathing in iniquity themselves!. For this reason I am also afraid of our current crop of preachers, and afraid for them because they are fools leading the blind and will go down with the rest of society in the coming hyperinflation.

You will dismiss me today, but within 2 years you will remember these posts.

To any closeted LGBT folks out there:

There is nothing wrong with your sexuality, any shame you feel is just a cultural thing, you can let it go and be loved for who you are.
