Christians all around America stood in long lines at Chick-Fil-A yesterday and trumpeted their participation all over social media in the same reverence as a gay-pride event. Reports indicate that around half-a-million showed up to give a "cluck for some bucks" in support of traditional marriage. This uprising reveals just how asleep and "chicken" we are. Thousands will fall off pews to oppose gay marriage, yet will not whisper a public peep when our true Freedoms are threatened and slowly taken away.
When ObamaCare was passed in 2010, there was some uprising from people calling themselves members of a "Tea Party." If there were Christians in that bunch, then the Party was nothing compared to the passionate bloviating exhibited over Chick-Fil-A yesterday. Churches were silent.
When the central control of our health — our lives were delegated to the government with the passage of the Affordable Care Act, American Christians were still snoring.
When an ObamaCare mandate declared by fiat earlier this year that Churches must provide birth control coverage for their employees, the Catholic Church came out of the confessionals and squawked a little. When the government punted the responsibility to the insurance companies involved, well the Church largely fell silent. Time for a nap, again I suppose. Whimpy, whimpy, whimpy.
When the Supreme Court issued a stunning verdict in support of ObamaCare, how many American Christians lined the streets to protest that? Exactly.
God gave us the "inalienable" right to life. American Christians are "alienating" that right to the government. They are letting unelected, unknown people in Washington declare how their health is to be dealt with. For some reason, they feel comfortable letting someone else other than God, have that much control over their lives.
So, will Christians stand up in support of life when healthcare is rationed and we have to wait in line for simple tests and medical treatments? They, like the rest of our cowardly country will do nothing. If Christians can’t stand against wrong-doing when it is easy to do so now, then they will never resist when it will be difficult later.
Perhaps Christians will rise again when the Government declares Chick-Fil-A’s food to be unhealthy and ban it from public consumption? By then it will be too late, chickens.
