If you don’t agree with Chick-fil-a slinging mud won’t help!
If you do agree with Chick-fil-a slinging mud won’t help!
kind of wish we could make a lot of this stuff in the news just go away.
Today I encountered this on Facebook. And I actually “liked” the picture from the standpoint that both sides should be able to do what they feel is necessary. I don’t like it because I don’t believe two wrongs make a right (or two “rights” make a right).
Below are the comments that followed the picture.
Comment 1: Nice. How sad this is. They had better watch out. God will only put up with this for so long.
Comment 2: You are right, Cindy. What gets me are all the so-called “Christians” who are manipulating Scripture to justify homosexuality, when it clearly speaks out against it.
Comment 3: They will love the business.
Comment 4: I don’t know but my guy tells me that this scheduled event will not go as peaceful as the one yesterday. I foresee huge problems. But I hope I’m wrong.
Comment 5: Supposed to be my GUT. iPhone!! Blah!! Lol!
Comment 6: Ya but there’s no such thing as bad publicity. My Nephew manages one in Charleston and all this has caused their sales to go through the roof. Not that they needed it. They are always busy here
Comment 7: I just don’t understand how the world can not see the only ones stirring up hate is the gay community.
Comment 8 (My Comment): Okay…I’m heterosexual and I’m absolutely appalled by all the comments above. I usually agree with the majority of the posts from Stephen and actually even like this picture he posted. Hate is coming from every angle and it’s disgusting. Tell me the last time you heard a gay person call Christians all kinds of names for living in sin, getting divorced and being hypocritical. God tells us to love everyone. None of us are better than anyone else and if you think you are…well then you have just as much to explain when you stand before him as you think they do for their so-called inappropriate behavior and lifestyle. It is not necessarily a lifestyle I completely understand, but I believe God makes NO mistakes and knows each of us before we are ever born!! There is no one that would EVER choose a lifestyle that would cause them to be constantly belittled, judged, hated, beaten and killed!! I have many friends who are gay and I love each and every one of them and they would NEVER choose this for themselves. God considers all sin equal – if you think this is a sin then I sincerely hope you have never lied, stolen so much as a quarter from your mother’s purse, looked at anyone with so much as an ounce of lust, cut anyone off in traffic or flipped anyone off. The only one who is truly righteous is God! We are human…we are not perfect! And remember, it is Christians who are picketing the funerals of fallen soldiers who have fought for our country…Christians for goodness sake!! What does that say about us?
Comment 9: God makes no mistakes. Agreed! Which proves homosexuality is a choice, and if not, then the lifestyle is.
I CHOOSE a Christian (not perfect by any means) lifestyle, and like other Christians around the world have been belittled, judged, hated, beaten and killed. Just as you have just done in your previous comments.
I won’t be offended by the ignorance of others. In no way did I belittle or judge anyone – I was simply trying to point out that we all need to be respectful of each other and look in our own backyards before casting stones. I will stand by this belief until I die – NO ONE CHOOSES A LIFESTYLE THAT WOULD CAUSE THEM TO BE CONSTANTLY RIDICULED AND THE SUBJECT OF HATE. And I’m going out on a limb here…are you saying that people with MS, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, born with a missing limb made that choice? Because, you are saying God makes no mistakes (as I’ve also said). What about people who die of heart attacks who have always eaten healthy and lived a healthy lifestyle? What about babies who die without experiencing anything in life – no Kindergarten, riding a bicycle, no sleep overs or pool parties.
I am well aware that I have friends on both sides of the fence and it is likely I have offended some of you. That is not, and never will be, my intention. My intention is to make people think about their thoughts and actions. Be compassionate. Do you hate all Muslims because of what happened on 9/11? Do you truly, in your heart of hearts, hate all atheists? You can disagree with a friend and make the statement “let’s agree to disagree” – how come we are not trying that here?
Late breaking Comment 10 (came in as I write this): SO if they are hanging out in the parking lot kissing and not there to spend money….they are loitering. How stupid. Why not just show up. Why do you have to kiss to show love and equality. I love my husband but we don’t kiss at Chic Fil A to show we love each other.
Yesterday I saw a comment on this being a means of being “politically correct” and how we’ve taken that too far. I whole heartedly disagree. This is my thought on the whole PC thing (as commented on a friend’s status yesterday)…And I may have to write a post about this, but to me the whole PC issue doesn’t even come into play in something like this. Being PC is ensuring that people aren’t calling others nigger, fag, spick and the like. Being PC is more about sensitivities around being downright disrespectful of others. Hence the campaign against using the “R” word (retarded) which I have tried very hard to stop using. To me this CFA issue is just too much. There are so many other things we need to focus on. This actually shouldn’t be news. Sad that it is…ugh! I could really go back and forth and on and on forever about this, but that just keeps the damn fire burning!
Please understand that I love ALL my friends and family regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, and all the other reasons you could possibly think of. I do not fault you for who you love or how you believe. I will have a problem when you lie to me, steal from me or disrespect me. Otherwise, I love you and all of your YOUness. And, in my next life I want to be a spoiled dog just like Reba living in a house of people who love me so much I can do no wrong and get everything I want including many, many toys and rides in my carriage and the car and know that I never have to worry about all this stuff going on around me because I’m too busy making my family kiss my little crocked tail. *woof*
New comments came in before I finished.
Comment 11: ^^^ exactly!!
Comment 12: Ouch. I have to agree those things are done in hate. But just because they say they are Christian doesn’t mean they are. Oops some people would say that’s judging and it probably is my bad. Anyways. It’s my belief we are all gods children and I pray for peace solidarity, understanding, and compassion for us all. Oh yes let’s not forget rain! It will be interesting to see what tomorrow brings. We will see how much Chic Fil A really believes in freedom of speech. Nothing wrong with a little PDA as long as it doesn’t go overboard and that’s for us all. Pray for us sinners
