  • It Was Wrong of me to Eat at Chick-fil-A Due to 'Their Background,' Twitter CEO Says

    Christian Post ^ | 06/12/2018 | Brandon Showalter
    The CEO of Twitter says he was wrong to enjoy a Chick-fil-A meal, telling commenters on social media that he had forgotten about "their background," referring to the Christian beliefs of the company's owners. Jack Dorsey, the CEO of the social media giant tweeted a screenshot from his phone showing that he had bought something at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. Following a backlash, he claimed to have made a mistake on Sunday. Erica Baker, senior engineering manager at Patreon, was perturbed at Dorsey, telling him to either delete his Chick-fil-A tweet "or follow up with how much free advertising...
  • So, LGBT Activists Do Want to Put Christians in Jail

    The Stream ^ | August 2017 | Michael Brown
    During a TV interview in 2011, I quoted the words of a Christian lawyer who said that just as gay activists were once put in jail, they now want to put us in jail. For making this comment, I was vilified by Right Wing Watch, mocked by gay activists, and ridiculed by others. I wonder what those critics are saying today in light of a recently proposed California bill that would send nursing home caregivers to jail for “misgendering” their nursing home patients. As a Daily Caller headline announces, “California Could Start Jailing People Who Don’t Use Transgender Pronouns.”

    A restaurant based in Indianapolis, Indiana, allegedly asked one of its customers to leave for wearing a necklace containing a large cross. Jerry Bond, who patronized Kilroy’s Bar N’ Grill with his minister and a few friends, claims a bouncer asked him to remove his cross necklace or leave the restaurant. “The bouncer comes back over, really bad attitude, [and says] ‘We’re going to ask you to either tuck your necklace, remove it or you have to leave,” Bond told WRAL. “I’m not going to tuck my cross in because of my beliefs. I believe in wearing this cross and...

    Well, as a reader points out, we have our first court ruling on religious liberty since Masterpiece Cakeshop. An Arizona appeals court even cited the ruling in its own ruling against two Phoenix calligraphers who said that doing same-sex wedding invitations was a violation of their constitutionally protected religious beliefs. Here’s a link to a PDF of the full text of the ruling. Excerpts:

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | June 7, 2018 | Jack Phillips
    The Supreme Court’s ruling this Monday on my case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, helped determine that people of faith remain free to pursue our chosen vocations. . . . after decades of developing my craft, my home state took it away from me. My case started in 2012 when I was asked to design a wedding cake celebrating a same-sex marriage. I politely declined that request because of my religious beliefs about marriage. But I told the customers that I would sell them anything else in my shop, or create a cake for them for a different...

    Fox News ^ | 4-22-18 | Douglas McKinnon
    Too many of those who worship at the altar of political correctness have deemed that Christianity should no longer be respected. Rather, they assail it on a regular basis in a coordinated campaign to weaken the faith and its base. The prevailing view in much of the media is that Christianity is aligned with Republicans, conservatives, or the views of President Trump – and therefore must be diminished and made suspect. The New Yorker just described the opening of a few Chick-fil-A restaurants in New York City as “Pervasive Christian traditionalism,” and a “Creepy infiltration of New York City.” (Skip)...

As has been well documented, the left is hating on Chick-fil-A...again.  No one should be surprised by this, least of all Chick-fil-A.  Back in 2012, Chick-fil-A became a prime target of the left when its then-president and chief operating officer, Dan Cathy – son of founder Truett Cathy and now the chairman and CEO of Chick-fil-A – gave a benign interview to Baptist Press (the Cathys are longtime members of New Hope Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Ga.). The following...

    Breit Bart ^ | 4/20/018 | THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.
    Gentleman’s Quarterly has proposed refashioning contemporary culture by unmooring it from the past, a feat that can be accomplished — in part — by updating lists of required reading. First among these “overrated books” is the Bible, for which the GQ editors reserve some particularly choice epithets.... It is “repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish, and even at times ill-intentioned,” or, in a nutshell, “certainly not the finest thing that man has ever produced.” The core of the GQ proposal is the surgical excision of books that serve to keep traditional values alive. As simple as it is straightforward, GQ’s plan follows...

    <p>Chick-fil-A-phobia.</p> <p>Perhaps, in the interest of public health, the CDC should launch a weekly C-F-A-P surveillance report to map the recurrence of this culturally infectious disease. Early-onset symptoms include fear of pressure-cooked poultry, allergic reaction to waffle potato fries and an irrational hatred of cow costumes. Anti-Christian prejudice and coastal elitism are common comorbidities associated with this debilitating progressive condition.</p>

    The New Yorker approaches topics like a shallow teenager: Slap a disparaging word onto a popular topic and bingo! You have journalism. Among the long, hallowed list of people, places and things the magazine has found “creepy,” the publication’s latest target is – surprise! – the Christianity of the Chik-fil-A franchise. Blogger Dan Piepenbring found the franchise’s “pervasive Christian traditionalism” with its statue of “Jesus washing a disciple’s feet” and its policy to close on Sundays just too much. Then again, The New Yorker has called many things “creepy.” From Miley Cyrus’ return to sobriety to IKEA’s aesthetic to children’s...

    Today, "atheism" means something entirely different from a simple lack of belief in God. What atheism has become can be more accurately described as "the anti-Christian movement." It is a movement that assumes that Christianity isn't merely naďve and false, but a major cause of social ills, something worth the effort to actively ferret out and purge from our society. This anti-Christian crusade has been both supported by, and a natural outgrowth of, the much larger program of cultural Marxism.

    Nearly a month after a student was barred from attending a religious studies class, Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) has reversed course, suspending normal policies and procedures. Lake Ingle, a student enrolled in "RLST 481 - Special Topic - Self, Sin, and Salvation," a course taught by IUP Professor Alison Downie that he needs in order to graduate, objected to his instructor's claims regarding the "reality of white male privilege," on February 28. Ingle also rebutted claims made in a video shown in class that featured a transgender woman, stating that there are only two genders and arguing that the...

    ABC News’ “The View” star Joy Behar has reportedly apologized for recent comments that mocked Vice President Pence’s Christian faith. Disney CEO Bob Iger said during the Q&A portion of a shareholder meeting on Thursday that Behar apologized directly to Pence on the phone. A source close to Pence confirmed to Fox News that Behar did apologize. The shareholder who asked the question was Justin Danhof, who is the general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research. Danhof told Iger that some of Disney’s recent decisions are “strange when trust in media is at an all-time low” and...

    One of country music’s most powerful executives, says gun-toting, Bible-clinging fans like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are no longer welcome. The controversy started when the Country Music Association triggered a massive outbreak of microaggressions after they appointed Huckabee to the board of its charitable foundation. Huckabee has been a longtime supporter of music education so his appointment to a charitable board that supports music programs for young people was a perfect fit. However, a mob of social justice warriors, led by openly gay country music executive Jason Owen, protested – calling Huckabee’s appointment “grossly offensive” and “heartbreaking.” “This man...

    More than 30,000 callers blasted ABC for allowing The View’s Joy Behar to spew “anti-Christian bigotry,” but the parent company has not taken action on any of their complaints. An estimated 30,588 angry viewers called the television network as of Wednesday morning, outraged after ABC broadcast an episode of The View this month in which co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin mocked Vice President Mike Pence for his religious beliefs. Media Research Center president Brent Bozell urged the television network to apologize for allowing religious bigotry to be tolerated on network television. The MRC posted contact information for 14 advertisers...

    For seven hours Wednesday, the remains of the Rev. Billy Graham lay in honor at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda. Hundreds of people streamed past his coffin, many with tales of how the iconic pastor brought them closer to Jesus Christ. The coffin was to be escorted out of the Capitol Thursday morning for its journey to Charlotte, N.C. for a private funeral Friday. Wednesday began with a private, televised memorial at the Rotunda, the nation’s three most powerful politicians — House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and President Trump — speaking of Graham’s great...
