This whole Chick-Fil-A controversy is bothersome. If someone doesn’t like the political position a company takes, then don’t support them. Buy your chicken sandwich from McDonald’s. If we all took the personal politics of some of the leaders of companies into account of all the products we bought, we’d never go out to a store.

I don’t support some of the stances that Starbucks and Apple take on some matters, but it doesn’t stop me from drinking a venti Pike Place while using my iPad. I don’t support some of the political and theological stances of the ELCA church body, but that doesn’t mean I won’t pray for a member of one of their churches if they’re sick.

The people of Chicago have more pressing matters to deal with rather than their public officials attacking Chick-Fil-A. Innocent people are being gunned down in the streets of the Windy City like it was the WIld West. Get to stopping this crime instead of wasting time attacking a private business.

One of the most important parts of our faith in Jesus Christ is that we are to love our neighbor, even those who are wrong and go against God and His Word. We cannot change hearts and minds by threatening and fighting. Instead, we talk about the issue of same-sex marriage in a Godly manner with those who support it. The controversy over this fast food chicken company is political, and that should sadden everyone.
