with statements disparaging gay marriage.
Note: Above image is not the disparaging message but someone’s humorous take on Chick-Fil-A’s homophobic stance and subsequent actions to “voluntarily” recall muppet toys after the Jim Henson company said they would not be providing toys anymore to Chick-Fil-A.

Jesus promoted love, tolerance, and understanding by being around those who were considered the lowlifes of society, such as adulterers, prostitutes, and tax collectors, and it was Jesus who said “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.”
There must be a lot of “Christians” here who are without sin or they somehow decide that they are Christians without following what Jesus said.
Of course, this may be exactly why Jesus said “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” How prophetic his words are.
It shouldn’t be surprising, but Chick-Fil-A has been donating millions of dollars into anti-gay marriage organizations. And not surprisingly, other right-wing nut jobs like Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum are publicly offering support for Chick-Fil-A.
All I can say is that as late as 1967, some states had laws on the books outlawing interracial marriages. I’m sure the Bible was used as justification for those bans as well.
REST IN PEACE, SALLY RIDE
On a sad note, we lost a true American hero recently with the passing of Sally Ride, the first American woman in space and also the youngest American in space. On a sadder note, we live in a society where she had to hide her love for her partner up until her death. Rest in Peace, Sally.
On that note, it’s too bad there aren’t more “brave” people out there to support people’s rights to choose who they love.
