To: wagglebee; little jeremiah
While the mayors of three large cities and a few University administrators were publicly threatening to ban Chick-fil-A, and while the discussion was the hot news topic of the week, there were many ministers who said little or nothing at all. Church members from across the country are puzzled as to why. When a Christian brother is beaten up by the world and left wounded on the side of the road why would church leaders just pass by on the other side and not get involved?

("Break the conventions; keep the commandments." -- G. K. Chesterton)
A pastor I once knew told me that he dared not preach sermons on “sensitive” issues for fear of the church board removing him—or the IRS coming in and seizing his church assets and harassing the congregants. We have traded the truth of Scripture for the promise of a little safety. We protect the 501C-3 status and world says Why bother being a Christian They do nothing,require nothing —affect nothing.
