OK, I’m getting sick of this. There’s a ton of people passing around the following picture that are about to get a slappin’ by ye olde Annoyed Elephant:
Seriously… what’s wrong with you people? Christians are among the most generous people on the planet. They give and give and give to food banks, homeless shelters, and individuals in need on a near-constant basis, giving billions of dollars every year out of their own pockets to combat poverty and hunger, not only in America, but around the world. On top of that, Chick-Fil-A mandates that its franchises also give to local charities and people in need.
And yet, socially-minded folks are lining up to point out how evil some Christians were for spending $7 at Chick-Fil-A to support a man who shares their family values. As if it’s an either-or scenario where we either help the poor or support Chick-Fil-A, and ne’er the twain shall meet. As if, somehow, because of all the people who ate at Chick-Fil-A on Wednesday to support Truett Cathy’s freedom of conscience regarding his Biblical morals will somehow erase decades of “success” in the war on poverty.
Get off your high horse, people. Eat your damned chicken sandwich.
