Billy Graham Makes Statement on Chick-fil-a [Rahm Emmanuel Must Hate Him, too!]
True Value Experience ^ | 26 July 2012 | Reid Guy

Posted on 07/26/2012 12:02:12 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Today world renown pastor and evangelist made a public statement in support of Chick-fil-a, and the controversy that surrounds the company’s stance against gay-marriage. Graham is a proponent of the biblical position of marriage being between one man and one woman. His statement is as follows:

“I want to express my support for my good friends Truett Cathy and his son Dan Cathy, and for their strong stand for the Christian faith. I’ve known their family for many years and have watched them grow Chick-fil-A into one of the best businesses in America while never compromising their values. Chick-fil-A serves each of its customers with excellence, and treats everyone like a neighbor. It’s easy to see why Chick-fil-A has become so popular across America.

Each generation faces different issues and challenges, but our standard must always be measured by God’s word. I appreciate the Cathy family’s public support for God’s definition of marriage.

I also appreciate Governor Mike Huckabee’s leadership and for encouraging Americans to support Chick-fil-A on August 1. As the son of a dairy farmer who milked many a cow, I plan to ‘Eat Mor Chikin’ and show my support by visiting Chick-fil-A next Wednesday.”

I wonder if the clowns in Chicago, the Obamugabe supporters, like Rahm and Moreno, who are overseeing unprecedented MURDERS OF BLACKS, will take time out of their busy schedule to spit upon Billy Graham.

I wonder if these haters would allow Reverend Graham to PREACH in their city.

The bottom line in this whole thing is... this company would bring MANY JOBS to the area. They are so busy all of the time... they have many employees and there would be lots of young people who would make money working a nice and... a fun job.

Of course Baby Rahm hates him.

Billy Graham came and preached in Central Park about 10 years ago, and the Catholic diocese sent us all to hear him because he was so orthodox.

Obama and his minions HATE orthodox Christians.

The mayor's war is not actually against Chic-Fil-A but against Christianity. Non-Christians against gay marriage are welcomed with open arms.

BINGO! Liberal dem governments destroy business and make everything more expensive for the citizens. They waste their time and the people’s money on pointless endeavors like worrying about whether the owner of a chicken franchise supports gay marriage.

I know I’m going to catch hell for posting this youtube link, but when I first heard about this years ago I was very disappointed with Billy Graham. The clip is an audio tape of Richard Nixon and Billy Graham privately discussing the “stranglehold” that the “Jewish media” has on the country in 1972. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEMeWcnfRsE

August 1st is CFA Appreciation Day. I hope the media covers it. From what I hear, a lot of people are planning on being there.

I’ve never seen a Chick-fil-a, much less eaten at one, but if I see one on my next long trip, I will definitely give it some business. Help support the cultural warriors.

So now black Islamist will patrol Chicagos streets, attacking all homosexuals, according to the Koran. At the same time, kicking out business, creating more unemployment because of a Christian believing in the Word of God.

Oh my gosh! Their chicken biscuits are the best! I’m not supposed to eat stuff like that any more, but I may just have to make the sacrifice for freedom of speech!

And well you should.

What is your point in dredging up this decades-old canard about Billy Graham? To "prove" that conservative Christians = anti-Semites = "homophobes"? They're all one & the same, right?

You might find yourself more at home in a forum that promotes the politically-correct and anti-God views you seem to be espousing.

Your response brightened my afternoon. My doctor warns me from time to time that if I continue to do something or the other I’m going to die. Well, I’m pretty sure I’m going to die anyway and I would rather go out knowing I did what I could to protect our precious freedoms. And God did say that Man shall not live by bread alone so it makes perfect sense to throw some CFA check in the middle.

Oh, give me a break. It’s not my fault Billy Graham was caught saying what he said. And no, I won’t leave.

I wonder when Mr Graham will release his response to Benny Hinns recent statement,

BG made a mistake in 1972. And that is relevant to Chick Fil-A in 2012 how?

Benny Hinn is a charlatan in my opinion.

[Re Chick...Rahm, and Billy, here’s some fascinating and related commentary that popped up on my computer.]

We Are In Obama’s Dark Night !

A night of spiritual, social, mental, and economic darkness that he’s created for us!
Are you aware that Barack Hussein Obama can be found in the Bible?
Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): “It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!”
Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under “a servant who becomes king.”
And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: “let thy words be few...a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.”
Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he’s destined to become a black-slavery avenger.
Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!
For some stunning info on Obama and his fellow subversives, Google or MSN the newest versions of “Obama Promotes Public Sex,” “Michelle Obama’s Allah-day,” “David Letterman’s Hate Etc.,” “Un-Americans Fight Franklin Graham” and also “Sandra Bernhard, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman.” Also Google “The Background Obama Can’t Cover Up” and “Prof. F. N. Lee’s ISLAM IN THE BIBLE [PDF].”
PS - Since Christians are commanded to ask God to send severe judgment on persons who commit and support the worst forms of evil (see I Cor. 5 and note “taken away”), Christians everywhere should constantly pray that the Lord will soon “take away” or at least overthrow all US leaders who continue to sear their conscience and arrogantly trample the God-given rights of the majority including the rights of the unborn. Do we need a second American Revolution?
