Faith-compatible favorite Chick-fil-A is once again in the crosshairs, this time for not being pro-LGBT enough.
On Monday, openly gay Washington Post advice columnist Steven Petrow—a.k.a. “Mr. Manners”—responded to an anonymous question from a woman whose pro-LGBT husband “loves a certain purveyor of chicken sandwiches and waffle fries that has an anti-gay stance.”
Although the reader does not mention Chick-fil-A by name, Petrow proceeds to bash America’s top-ranked chicken restaurant chain—while navigating the “ethics” of patronizing it.
Petrow determines that Chick-fil-A’s crime is a “lack of protections for its LGBT employees” and quotes a spokesperson from the nation’s most powerful LGBT lobbying group, who laments that Chick-fil-A has failed to implement any “meaningful changes to protect LGBT employees from discrimination, nor explicit protections for sexual orientation or gender identity.”
For Faith Driven Consumers who know and love Chick-fil-A for not only its great food, but its biblically based values to “go the second mile” and treat all customers and employees with dignity and respect, the latest demands of gay activists leave folks scratching their heads.
So, what’s going on here?
Christians are being told that it’s no longer enough to simply accept the goals of LGBT activists, we must fully embrace and celebrate them—or be chastised and punished.
With powerful media outlets like the Washington Post once again attacking Chick-fil-A, it’s time for faith-driven Christians to rally around Chick-fil-A like we did on August 1, 2012—“Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.” Check out our Faith Driven Consumer review of Chick-fil-A here, make a special effort to visit a Chick-fil-A restaurant to show your support, and tell us about it on our Facebook page.
