Now keep in mind that Chick-fil-A is not a Christian organization like Answers in Genesis, Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. We have a clear mission to proclaim the truth of God’s Word and the gospel—an overtly Christian message to impact as many people as we can. Chick-fil-A is a fast food restaurant that sells chicken sandwiches and other food.
But this furor over a chicken sandwich clearly shows the extreme intolerance of many of those in the LGBT movement. Even if a company does not have a specific Christian purpose, if someone associated with the company is a Christian, then the LGBT movement will denigrate him and try to do harm—and then lash out at those who choose to eat at the company’s restaurant.
After receiving a backlash from LGBT activists, Dorsey apparently tweeted, “You’re right. completely forgot about their background.” He apologized for eating at a restaurant simply because the head office is owned by Christians who believe God’s Word!
Many in the LGBT community don’t just want “tolerance” of their views. They want everyone else to affirm and celebrate their lifestyle and beliefs. Many have no tolerance for Christians and their beliefs. They demand tolerance, but have no tolerance for anyone who does not share their beliefs.
As believers, we must continue to be salt and light in a culture that increasingly vilifies Christians and biblical beliefs.
As believers, we must continue to be salt and light in a culture that increasingly vilifies Christians and biblical beliefs. We must boldly and compassionately speak the truth while sharing the life-saving message of the gospel with all we meet. And if people hate us for our biblical beliefs—so be it. They hated Christ first.
If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (John 15:18–19)
