3 Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?” 4 And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 5 and said, ‘FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH’? 6 ”So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” Matt. 19:3–6, NASB
My wife and I attempted to eat at our local Chick-Fil-A here in Olathe, Kansas this evening in support of Dan Cathy in light of the completely biased or one-sided coverage of his interview statements as a Baptist in a Baptist publication about religious and theological issues. It seems that it is perfectly fine for those with a worldview that is opposed to the traditional Christian worldview to express them, especially when it comes to the Biblical definition of what constitutes marriage, but those who hold to the Christian worldview have no right to state their beliefs, their stances, and what lines they will never cross no matter what. By the way, this was the day people were to come out in support of Chick-Fil-A and Dan Cathy en masse and we witnessed it big time in Olathe. We couldn’t even get close to the restaurant. The line to get in even beat the line we experienced at Cantler’s Crab House in Annapolis, Maryland last weekend. My wife has been ill and couldn’t stand in the sun so we had to go eat elsewhere. However, from where we sat, we could see that the crowds never diminished the whole time we were there.
