Over the past month, several progressive-activist blogs have waged an ugly war against Chick-fil-A. The company’s alleged atrocity: One of its independent outlets in Pennsylvania donated some sandwiches and brownies to a marriage seminar run by the Pennsylvania Family Institute, which happens to oppose same-sex marriage.
In the name of tolerance, the anti-Chick-fil-A hawks sneered at the company’s main product as “Jesus Chicken,” derided its no-Sunday-work policy, and attacked its operators as “anti-gay.” Michael Jones, who describes himself as having “worked in the field of human rights communications for a decade, most recently for Harvard Law School,” launched an online petition drive at http://www.change.org “demanding” that the company disavow “extreme anti-gay groups.” Facebook users dutifully organized witch hunts against the company on college campuses.
There are so many things we can do between election days to influence the direction of our country and our communities.
Many are frustrated and feeling helpless due to the increasing intimidation tacticts being used by the enemies of freedom, family, and faith in America.
Some of the things we can do to make a difference are easier to talk about than to do: spending time on your knees in prayer, soul searching to repent of sins so that our prayer life is unhindered, researching tough topics and discerning how biblical principles apply, pro-actively purposefully engaging your neighbors on tough topics and educating them. But since these things are very difficult for many people for one reason or another, most people just forward emails and look forward to voting with passion.
Forwarding emails and voting is not enough and if that is all we can do, then we are indeed doom and gloomers for if that is all we do our future will certainly be tyrrany.
People want to make a difference but they dont want to do the hard things.
Luckily, some of the things we can do are incredibly easy and natural and simply involve being purposeful in where we spend and store money.
Switching from a globalist owned bank that is a proud member of the criminal cartel creating economic havoc around the world to a small community owned bank is easy. Buying locally produced goods so that your neighbors business remains a viable competitor to big box gloablist owned companies is easy. Eating locally produced food that is not factory processed, made from GMO’s, not poisined with growth hormones and/or antibiots, and which is not transported using fuel that our enemies supply us is easy.
But perhaps the easist thing of all is your choice of fast food when you do eat out.
What if there were a national chain that was owned by Christians (even closes shop on Sundays so employees can go to church) and which invests in its community’s children through scholarships, and which gives charitably to faith based pro-family organizations?
What if this chain of fast food stores was coming under increasing attack from anti-family a nit-faith groups which are indignant that the chain could support a group which is on record for being against homosexuality (the bible is similarly on record regarding the practice of homosexuality by the way).
You want to do something easy that makes a difference? Vote with your wallet, buy local as much as possible, and when you eat fast food- Eat at Chick-fil-A
I’m not letting me or you off the hook on doing the hard things. 2 Ch 7:14 tells us what we must do to bring about God’s healing of our land. http://durablefaith.com/2010/02/23/if-my-people/
Do the hard things. But be sure to do the easy things too
