Would Jesus bitch slap the far right and Chick-fil-A?

Maybe, and quite possibly justifiably, but Chick-fil-A does help feed the homeless too.

Adrianne Curry’s remarks were a reaction to the Chick-fil-A controversy. She commented on Twitter that if far right Christians spent the money they used to actively oppose gay marriage to feed the homeless there wouldn’t be a starving child left in America. As it turns out, Chick-fil-A does work with Christian groups to help feed the homeless every year. I don’t mind an intellectual discussion on the matter as long as we take into consideration all of the facts.

As for mayors blocking Chick-fil-A in their cities, well, Chick-fil-A has taken a deliberately hardline and very public stance against gay marriage so they shouldn’t be surprised when they get scorched earth against them in return, especially in big northern cities.

    What do they feed them? Chick-fil-a is not “food”, it’s garbage. Mystery Meat. So, what do they feed them, yesterday’s throw-aways?

    I’m always amazed that the Bible mentions homosexuality [arguably] three times, and justice for the poor – not just food but justice – hundreds of times, and guess which issue gets all the press!

    Try this one, from Exodus 22: “You shall not
    wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of
    Egypt. You shall not
    abuse any widow or orphan… If you lend money
    to my people, to the poor among you, you shall not deal with them as a creditor;
    you shall not exact interest from them. If you take your
    neighbor’s cloak in pawn, you shall restore it before the sun goes
    down; for it may be your
    neighbor’s only clothing to use as cover; in what else shall that person sleep?”

    Or this one from Isaiah 5: “Ah, you who join house to house,who add field
    to field,

    until there is
    room for no one but you… The LORD of
    hosts has sworn in my hearing: Surely many houses shall be desolate, large and
    beautiful houses, without inhabitant.”

    This is one of my favorites, from Isaiah 32: “See, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes
    will rule with justice… A fool will no longer be called noble, nor a villain
    said to be honorable… they devise wicked devices to ruin the
    poor with lying words, even when the
    plea of the needy is right.”
