Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Chick-Fil-A: Much More Than Comments Concerning Traditional Marriage

I'm happy to see so many of my fellow Christians supporting Chick-Fil-A [CFA] in light of the recent comments from CFA President Dan Cathy in favor of "the biblical definition of the family unit."

The media, along with certain celebrities and politicians, have taken Cathy's comments to be against so-called "same-sex marriage." But I would encourage anyone reading this (who has not already done so) to also research the positive steps CFA has consistently taken in support of healthy, loving families: steps like supporting adoption fundraisers. Through the Winshape Foundation (an organization established by Truett Cathy, which is promoted by and closely tied to CFA), stable homes have been provided to children who would otherwise be bounced around the foster-care system, under-privileged children have had the opportunity to attend summer-camps, and leadership initiatives-- focusing on helping the poor, the orphaned, and the abused-- have been developed.

It is strange that "same-sex marriage" has become such an important cause to some people, that when the president of an organization says makes a statement that may be taken to imply he does not support the re-definition of marriage-- a statement based on his personal religious conviction-- those people are willing to protest, boycott, severe ties from, and ban that organization, overlooking all the good they do every day.
