Intolerance Will Not Be Tolerated

Here is something that I can’t seem to wrap my head around….

Major companies like Google, Oreo, Starbucks, and Home Depot have come out in support of gay marriage. While I do not agree with gay marriage, I do believe that these companies have the right to exercise their support of certain groups or personal beliefs and are not necessarily “God-haters” (though some may be). I continue to shop at these places when I need certain products (who can resist an Oreo or Gmail) and will not protest them based on their actions.

So in comes Chick-Fil-A (article here). They decide to stand up in support of their own Biblical values. Now they are being protested by the LGBT community for their stance. One man makes a comment that their chicken nuggets are “filled with hate”. I mean really?? They are not posting signs on their doors rejecting homosexual clients. Why is it some want tolerance for all while being intolerant of some? If you call for tolerance of all, that includes sexuality AND religion even when you don’t agree.

And before you put me in the “hater box” (if you have read this far), I believe this is a wake up call for the Christian as well.

You shouldn’t be supporting companies like Chick-Fil-A because they are against homosexuality. You should be supporting them because they are speaking truth for Jesus Christ.

    People are not upset with Chic Fil A just because their ceo made a comment. They are upset because the company donates millions of dollars in profits to anti-gay groups. When the CEO admitted they are “guilty as charged” that just confirmed what everyone already knew.

    Nevetsnan, I appreciate your feedback but am not sure I see Chick-Fil-A donating to any anti-gay groups. If you are talking about their support of the church, the church is not anti-gay (against gay). The church just does not agree with the practice of homosexuality.

    I support Chick-fil-a for one reason only — their food is delicious and their service is far better than any other fast food place. I don’t care what their stance is on gay marriage.

    Agree 100% w ur post but to take it a step farther I have my own strong opinions on tolerance . Bottom line I have tolerance for the unbeliever because they know no better however for the sanctified believer I have zero tolerance for their continual deliberate sinful behavior.
    I don’t expect the unbeliever to walk in wisdom but I surely do.for the sanctified believer.
    That pretty much sums it up.
