Chick-Fil-A’s Surrender Will Only Empower Liberal Bullies




By Kay Cole James - 

As we head into the Christmas season, religious liberty in America continues to be under attack, and it’s not just about whether people can say “Merry Christmas” in public places.

With the recent controversy over Chick-fil-A bowing to pressure to end its financial support of charities the far left has labeled as “anti-gay,” organizations that dare to hold onto certain deeply held religious beliefs will likely be punished for it.

I have served on the national boards of the two charities that Chick-fil-A will no longer be supporting, the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Both charities have been smeared by the left as being anti-gay because of their traditional religious view of marriage as between one man and one woman.

As a former board member of both organizations, I never witnessed—nor would I have tolerated—any type of prejudice or bigotry toward gay people. All I ever saw was people earnestly wanting to help other people.

In fact, the Salvation Army estimates that it is the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBT community in the nation. The money it was getting from Chick-fil-A went to its Angel Tree program to provide Christmas gifts for needy children. The FCA was using its donation to send poor youth to summer sports camps at historically black colleges and universities.

Contrary to the accusations from the left, Christians do not hate gay people; our faith teaches us to love everyone. This issue is not with gay people; it’s with a small group of anti-religious activists who refuse to tolerate other people’s beliefs and seek to destroy anyone who doesn’t agree with their agenda.
