I have seen a commentary recently attacking the Chick-fil-a organization CEO for his stance against homosexual marriage. I thought I should write this commentary in his defense. Too often these days, people who disagree with homosexual behavior are berated in the press and other arenas of society simply for speaking out. Simultaneously though, the homosexual community cries out for “tolerance” of homosexual behavior.
I have to ask, why is it that so many in society are so adamant that homosexuals should have the right to speak their minds, but if anyone (such as myself) disagrees with them, we are called “homophobic” and so forth?
Just because I disagree with homosexuals does not @ all imply that I fear them, anymore than someone who disagrees with Obama “fears” him. What we have is a disagreement with each other, no more, no less.
With that said, the CEO of Chick-fil-a is in my view a courageous soul,in a world where abberations are becoming increasingly accepted by many, there are still those (like I and the Chick-fil-a CEO) who are not afraid to say “No, this is not normal or proper”.
I Love people, and it is actually BECAUSE of my Love for people that I cannot approve of corrupt behaviors.
The Christian Bible makes it clear Jesus Loves people,and in His Love He called people OUT of the darkness of this fallen world, He never approved of people’s sin, on the contrary, He commanded them to come out of darkness and “go and sin no more”.
We all fall short of that command @ times, we all stumble occasionally, but that does not make sin (of any form) acceptable.
If we sin, we should confess and forsake our sin as soon as possible, not continue to willingly wallow in it.
