    I was really disappointed with the comments in today’s show surrounding the Chick-Fil-A controversy.

    How is it wrong for Christians as a whole to boycott a company that openly supports immoral and destructive behavior? General Mills, Starbucks, The Jim Henson Company, and Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezo have all openly endorsed gay marriage. Jeff Bezo actually just donated $2.5 million to the cause of bringing gay marriage to his state.

    This is not about free speech or a difference of opinion. This is about companies that are using your money to fight everything you believe in.

    One of the hosts said he woudn’t go to a “Hitler coffee shop.” I assume that means he would actually boycott a racist business. But then that means he’s grading sin. Is racism somehow worse than sexual immorality?

    I’m sick of making these companies rich, only to have them turn around and give that money to evil causes. Furthermore, it’s seriously misguided of the hosts to shame Christians by calling them “judgmental” for simply caring where they spend God’s money.

    Steve, sorry, but I also disagree with your stance on Chic Fil A. I am a Christan, but I believe that gay rights are a civil rights issue. I, too, have spent a great dieal of time and prayer on this issue and believe that God has given me this answer.

    If the founder of this company said this about ethnic groups, everyone would be up in arms. I think what Mel Gibson is, also, hateful and I will not see his movies any more.

    While it is a free speech issue to some, it is also my right to not be affiliated with people or organizations who I find offensive–whether they are open on Sunday’s or not. 🙂

    Thank you for what you do, but I respectfully disagree.

    Btw, I wanted to thank the moderator for actually posting my comment. Most shows would simply delete ones that questioned their hosts’ beliefs. Says a lot about your organization as a whole that you’re not afraid to show criticism.

    Anyway, despite my dissent on that one issue, I continue to be a fan and a donor. Keep up the good work.

    I agree with Sophie and Melissa. If they can make a day of kissing each other, making fools of themselves in front of Chick-Fil-A in Fairfield, CA, then we can certainly decide to support the company, based on our morals and beliefs. They purposely made a day to get publicity and further ‘normalize’ their lifestyle. They best thing to do is make sure they do not get any publicity, but the media will do anything for a story.
