In response to the outrage from the left over Chick-Fil-A's stand for the Christian faith and the biblical view of marriage, evangelist Billy Graham came out and expressed his own support of the Georgia-based fast food company.
The 93 year old Graham said, “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," he continued. "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."
Graham said that every 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 Gov. 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,” Graham said.
Graham went on to state,
“I believe the home and marriage is the foundation of our society and must be protected."
At 93, I never thought we would have to debate the definition of marriage,” Graham said, according to the AP. “The Bible is clear – God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman.”
While mayors have shown their hypocritical intolerance of Chick-Fil-A, others from the militant homosexual community have as well. “This solidifies Chick-fil-A as being closely aligned with some of the most vicious anti-gay voices in the country,” said Carlos Maza of Equality Matters.
Cathy and his company are to be applauded because they are able to take their stand and yet they still continue to serve those who oppose them, even giving many of them free meals as this one anti Chick-Fil-A sodomite proclaimed, just as the Lord Jesus said that his followers would do.
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Mr. Cathy and his establishment have fulfilled this. They have not only spoken the truth in love, not hatred, but then they have demonstrated that love by continuing to serve those that disagree with them. Those opposed to Chick-Fil-A are those who demonstrate their open hatred and intolerance of anyone that disagrees with them or dares to call what they engage in sin. Yes, they are the true hypocrites in all of this. The reason for pointing out sin should always be to call people to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior from sin.
I've always heard that any publicity is good publicity and now, thanks to the militant homosexual movement, Chick-Fil-A is being heard about around the country by people who never would have known who they are and I'm guessing that many cities will pick up where the likes of Chicago and Boston will miss out. May God continue to bless the efforts of Dan Cathy and Chick-Fil-A.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
