Accentuate the positive

As I was eating my chicken sandwich yesterday, it occurred to me that this is the way to protest. Not just because it was tasty, but because it's nice to stand up for something by taking a positive, supportive action (even if it's a small one) instead of telling people "Don't go there" or "Don't buy that." And enough people did that to make it "a record-setting day."

Father Dwight Longenecker concurs:

"There were no protest signs (except from a few glum pro-gays who said we were eating ‘hate’ sandwiches). There were no noisy, angry scenes. Folks in the drive through lines did not honk their horns or proclaim their Christianity with bullhorns. There were no statements against homosexuals or homosexuality. (Indeed, the only statement put out by Chick-Fil-A affirmed their commitment to serve and employ all people equally without notice of race, gender, age or sexual orientation.) The brilliance of the event that it used the network of a nationwide fast food chain as the foundation for a visible, peaceful, creative nationwide statement."



I Agree With You, jerryh
And will be doing likewise.

Dr. D. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Presbyterian in Ft. Lauderdale(which I attended in the early 70s) did that with local homosexuals with great effect. Love is stronger than death.
