Chick-fil-A is back in the news: a gay rights organization in Chicago reports that the restaurant will stop donating to groups that oppose gay marriage rights. The company has neither confirmed nor denied the claim. Instead, it refers to a July statement by which it promises to “treat every person with honor, dignity, and respect, regardless of . . . sexual orientation.”
Some Christians are claiming on Chick-fil-A’s Facebook page that the company “caved” on its morals in order to sell chicken in more markets. Was a fast-food restaurant right to take a public stand on biblical marriage? Would Chick-fil-A be right to take a more neutral position on such a divisive cultural issue? Which stance pleases the Lord?
