The turnout at Wednesday's Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was huge. There were long lines everywhere. Homosexuals plan their own counter-demonstrations at "kiss-ins" today, and you can bet the national media will gave that demonstration more favorable coverage than the one by Christian conservatives on Wednesday.
Indeed, the Huffington Post found some homosexual Chick-fil-A employees who spouted the party line about the demonstrators being full of hate.
Where is all of this heading? It's heading in the way the world is heading: to destruction. All of this is forecast in Scripture if you take the time to read it, especially what Jesus and Paul said would be true in the "last days." What's wrong according to God's standard would be declared right and the reverse.
Christians will never persuade the unsaved through demonstrations of their positions. Leading people to Christ is the way to transform people. I fully support the right of free speech by Dan Cathy, the restaurant CEO, but I'll bet he would sasy that speech never changed anyone. Only the gospel does.
