The Chick-Fil-A picture about Christians needing to line up at a food bank was posted on a ‘Christian’s FB.
A FB friend of his posted the following:
You are right America never gives to those in need. When was the last time you attended a church? Maybe you are hanging out with the wrong crowd! Flaunting charity is not a Christian value. Loving sinners and hating sin can exist at the same time. If you want controversy look at the 75 countries that criminalize homosexuality 9 of which carry along the sheath penalty. Makes you want to thank W for trying to spread democracy ?!
1) any christian knows that attending church is not a requirement
2) my crowd is my wife, we're fine, thank you
3) the only country in question here is the USA
4) GWB's foreign policy was atrocious at best and BO's has been the best since Clinton
...people baffle me when it comes to this whole chik-fil-a thing; the comment made by the owner was not ambiguous and the resulting "flock" to the restaurants is indicative of what is wrong with conservatism and, by extension, religion today - there is more of a battle cry against homosexuality than their is against poverty and hunger - and that's a shame and i do not wish to converse with or "share a moment with God" under any roof with that kind of mentality - the notion to help the poor, the weak, the hungry should supersede any law, document, etc that any country has - i just get really sick of the toxic hypocrisy that is conservatism and the religious right - until you agree that i can sell my daughter into slavery, you cannot say a word about homosexuality from a religious standpoint...nothing!
What is a good response to this? This seems to be a common theme among sone of my FB friends, even a few ‘Christian’s’. Help!
