Chick-fil-A president: Gay marriage is ‘inviting God’s judgment on our nation’
Yahoo News ^ | 7/18/2012

Posted on 07/18/2012 12:42:50 PM PDT by Former Fetus

Dan Cathy, the president and chief operating officer of popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A, said in a radio interview this week that legalizing same-sex marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

Appearing on “The Ken Coleman Show,” Cathy spoke of his company’s pride in its socially conservative character, but then offered an assessment of same-sex marriage that might lose the chain a few customers.

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’” said Cathy.

Chick-fill-A is the chain that is willing to lose customers in order to stay closed on Sunday (the Lord's Day). Now they are standing up against gay marriage. I wish all Christians here, on FR, would agree to patronize Chic-fil-A. Let's put our money where our mouths (and keyboards) are!

But... But... They have places near the roads. The roads were built by the government so the government is responsible for their restaurants existence. Therefor government is god.

Obama said so...

“A nation that turns its back on God will not long endure” - Jim Robinson

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis%2019:27-28&version=KJV

Genesis 19:27-28

King James Version (KJV)

27 And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord:

28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2017:28-30&version=KJV

Luke 17:28-30

King James Version (KJV)

28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Some people would be happy to frequent a homosexual-free establishment.

If they openly display physical affection, it makes me feel ill.

That happened in 2008, lady. Try to keep up.

Actually, it’s 40 years of abortion:

Is 1:10-17
Hear the word of the LORD,
princes of Sodom!
Listen to the instruction of our God,
people of Gomorrah!
What care I for the number of your sacrifices?
says the LORD.
I have had enough of whole-burnt rams
and fat of fatlings;
In the blood of calves, lambs and goats
I find no pleasure.

When you come in to visit me,
who asks these things of you?
Trample my courts no more!
Bring no more worthless offerings;
your incense is loathsome to me.
New moon and sabbath, calling of assemblies,
octaves with wickedness: these I cannot bear.
Your new moons and festivals I detest;
they weigh me down, I tire of the load.
When you spread out your hands,
I close my eyes to you;
Though you pray the more,
I will not listen.
Your hands are full of blood!
Wash yourselves clean!
Put away your misdeeds from before my eyes;
cease doing evil; learn to do good.
Make justice your aim: redress the wronged,
hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow.

He's not really correct in this statement.

Homosexuality is not inviting God's judgement,

it IS God's judgement.

Consider Romans 1:18-32:
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of human beings who suppress the truth by their wickedness,

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

For now.

I’m hearing rumors of gay people planning to go into Chic-Fil-A and making out. It’s probably not a good idea considering that customers tend to be quick to call a “pervert” a “pervert”. Gays are used to being handled with kid gloves. Going too far in front of children could land them on a sex offender database.

They were chanting “If you’re eating Chick Fil-A, you’re eating anti-gay!!” near our local CF-A.

I go there all the time now. Just not on Sundays.

Great service, BTW.

The judgement of Nations didn’t happen in the Garden.

Nations are judged when appropriate, for example the massive storm that hit the east right after the abominal Obamacare decision by the SCOTUS. That was judgement.

I used to think “Wendys” was possibly a gay joint.

When we were first married, we lived for 13 weeks in Dallas off Mockingbird. We stopped by a Wendys which was the first one we had ever seen. The burgers were really good but we noticed a lot of weird looking characters hanging around.

After the second or third visit we kept seeing the same thing.

Later learned that area was popular with the homo crowd. Wendys just happened to be close.

In Walmart I had to confront the mother of a highschool lesbian kissing and hugging her “partner”. The mother also had a couple of other children with her that were about 5 and 7. I was pissed! It’s still a free country and if they’re not carefull this is going to get ugly.

So, the tummy is growling at me, what the heck where is the nearest CFL? Web site restaurant locator says, type in your zip code.

Easy.

Answer: 67.02 miles to the nearest CFL. Not so easy. Not tonight.

Going to family reunion in Indy first Sunday in August, and again to Indy for HS reunion at the end of August.

Yea! There is a whole bunch of CFLs in the Indy area.

Disaster is an arbitrary, and capricious word.

For that reason your question is not answerable. Not all natural events are disasters, and who can make that call?

The storm didn’t appear to be a disaster by human cost by my estimation, but there can be no question that it was directed at government.

Our judgement started with Madeline Murray O’Hair spouting her atheism on Phil Donahue’s first show, we kicked out Jesus and His Father from our once Godly country, then came ABORTIONS.......50 MILLION CHILDREN KILLED BY THEIR MOTHERS!!!!! Now it’s GAY RIGHTS and MARRIAGE everywhere especially on TV shows, then it was the MARXIST, COMMUNIST Obama getting elected......I can’t believe we are still hanging on by a thread....ONLY by a thread.
