Chick-fil-A CEO's exit from culture war politics 'no less a blow...than the betrayal of Benedict Arnold in the Revolutionary War'

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember the days when anti-LGBT activists were eating their weight in fried chicken sandwiches, thinking that silly stunt to put more money in rich people's pockets was actually some purposeful political act? Yeah, well—that bun-based ship sure has sailed! Nowadays, anti-LGBT activists like Scott Lively are eschewing the waffle fries and instead calling on Chick-fil-A head Dan Cathy (aka Benedict Arnold) to "repent of his sin":

Since then there have been many attacks, the most recent (before World Vision) being Dan Cathy of Chick Fil A appearing in the Atlanta Journal Constitution with the homosexual leader of “Campus Pride,” saying his statements in support of Biblical marriage in 2012 was a business mistake. This was no less a blow to the pro-family movement than the betrayal of Benedict Arnold in the Revolutionary War.

In the comments section under my article blasting Cathy’s selfishness, Christians were rushing to his defense, saying he needed to be restored to fellowship. Of course he should be restored, AFTER he has repented of his sin.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, please awaken to the seriousness of our situation. The enemy is over the wall and fighting in our back yard. The tactics of trying to appease them by secularizing our arguments, dodging media criticism, acting “nicer than Jesus,” and compromising our values to keep the peace have not stopped them yet and won’t stop them now.

The answer to “Gay Theology” is not “Appeasement Theology.” The answer is the restoration of Masculinity in the church. We are at war and we need to step up and push back the antichrists wherever they intrude into the church. [World Vision's] Richard Stearns needs to convince us that he understands why his actions were wrong before he receives another cent from Christians. Dan Cathy needs to convince us that standing for the truth of the Bible is more important that being allowed to put his restaurants on college campuses before we give him back our trust. We of the Bible-believing remnant need to start pressuring everyone who purports to speak for us to get off the defensive and start articulating the whole truth of God on this issue — regardless of the price they will pay for doing so!

Hobby Lobby better take note. You even think of tempering the waters even a bit, and you'll see how fair-weather the far right can be.
