Look, I am getting pretty tired of this Chick-Fil-A debate so I’ll say this: eat where you want but if you’re claiming to do so because you’re a Christian, let’s think about these two things: first, we are mandated to remember those who have nothing to eat. So if we really wanted to make a strong stance as a Christian community I think the better thing to do would be to focus on THAT and not some so-called statement about what a Christian-owned business can and can’t do regarding who they would like to hire.
I get it, I do: it is much easier to have a “position” than to live in community, but we’re not really called to do the easier thing. Feed someone, don’t prove a point. I don’t know much about how the end times are going to work, but even if you are “right,” I think being generous is more important than being correct. I think showing love is more important than proving a point. And second, we are supposed to care about everyone. All of these visits to Chick-Fil-A are dumping loads and loads of styrofoam and waste into dumps that disparately affect the “least of these” – while this is true of any trip to a fast food restaurant, that these are being done “in the name of Christ” really needs to be thought about. The world we live in is not to be taken for granted, and we are ALL meant to thrive here – Christian or not, whatever sexual orientation, whoever we are or whatever we have done. Think about this when you’re literally saying with your mouth that you are more correct than others and saying with your actions that you are more important than others. Just think about it – is this really Christian at all?
