CHICK-FIL-A GIVING. San Antonio, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, have kicked Chick-fil-A out of their airports for “aiding and abetting Christian organizations.” What is especially ironic is that it is the charity work of Chick-fil-A that those cities object to.
Chick-fil-A is accused of “anti-equality giving.” They gave significant amounts of money to the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and a home for troubled young men in Vidalia, Georgia. The main problem, according to those challenging Chick-fil-A is that these organizations promote a traditional Christian understanding of sex and marriage.
The programs that Chick-fil-A contributed to were sports camps and school programs for inner city kids. The Salvation Army has a budget of about two-billion dollars which it uses to provide aid for the homeless, anti-trafficking programs, disaster relief, etc., but not for policing LGBT civil rights. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes asks its leaders not to engage in homosexual or heterosexual acts outside of marriage as well as pledging not to use drugs, alcohol or tobacco. Once again, it is not carrying on an anti-LGBT campaign.
Have we reached a point in America where anyone who has strong moral standards and Bible-based beliefs is being denied the opportunity to own a business? The fact that they close their restaurants on Sunday continues to cause attacks on them. Are Christian moral standards a crime?
