Ronald Rodriguez at BearVeracity.com had an interesting take regarding the politicization of Chick-fil-A. He says it represents anti-Christian beliefs within this country.
Everyone needs to understand what this whole debate is all about. It needs to be understood that Chick-fil-A is not discriminating against anyone, despite the attempts and false reports to the contrary. The companies president, Dan Cathy simply expressed his opinion on marriage, which is based upon his Christian beliefs.
I have sat back and contemplating everything that has gone on with these recent Chick-fil-A events. I contend that the politicization over Dan Cathy’s comments actually reveals a deeper agenda and concern in our culture, which will place increasing pressure on Christians who stand upon the Bible and its definition of marriage between a man and a women. In short, its my contention that the American cultural discussion about the definition of marriage is not about Dan Cathy’s alleged homophobia, which is assumed over false assumptions, but about the Christophobia of those that are speaking out against his comments.
The stark reality is that we are experiencing a cultural shift that allows leaders to label Christians as intolerant and bigoted for expressing their opinion on how society should operate. The unfortunate thing is that Christians are faced with a double standard as the same social ostracism and cultural condescension are not extended to adherents of other religions. If Christians are tolerated if they keep to themselves and allow their beliefs to be compromised. But when they dare to speak out about their convictions, they are faced with such prejudice as mentioned.
