Gay Marriage and Chick-fil-a

Dan Cathy of Chick-fil-a  who is a born again Christian, caused an uproar recently when he said  he doesn't support same sex marriage.  So he doesn't support same sex marriage! Get over it! Just because someone believes that marriage should be between one man and one woman doesn't make that person a bigot!  We live in America and he is allowed to express his how he feels about the issue. After all he was asked and he told.  You may not agree with him and that is your right too. I have two dear friends whom I love dearly who are lesbians. I don't agree with their lifestyle and they are aware of that but I'm not a bigot and they don't consider me to be a bigot either.

It sounds to me like the gay rights activists want a "don't ask. don't tell" policy applied to anyone suspected of not supporting their lifestyle . Talk show hosts will be banned from asking their guests their position on the subject. Candidates will not be allowed to mention it. It will be banned from church sermons.  Because if you say you don't support gay marriage the media will have a field day and turn the whole thing into major controversy. They do it to sell  more papers and get  more people to watch their programming. So don't ask. don't tell!

Boycott the restaurants if they want. After all it is  I don't think it will make a difference in sales anyway and it's not going to change Mr.Cathy's mind. They have awesome food and there are plenty of people who are willing to eat there who may or may not agree with Mr. Cathy. I'm looking forward to the Chick-fil-a restaurant opening here in town as a matter of fact.

 Give me a break! There are far more important things happening  in our world  than how someone feels about same sex marriage!
 I think the shooting in Aurora, CO is the first thing that comes to mind. The unrest in Syria? The presidential election? Just to name a few. I think these are way more important.

I  probably won't be posting on this subject anymore. I just needed to get this out of my system but I can tell this is going to be interesting.

More Thoughts on Headcoverings

 I was thinking that probably more important than the style of coverings is how we behave while wearing our covering. Are we showing Christlike behavior in public and at home? Are we judgemental, have an "holier than thou" attitude towards Christian women who don't cover?
I hope I have never come across that way. I'm very quiet and shy so I hope that because of that people don't think I'm that way.

I have heard people say that some head covering Christian ladies have been the rudest and most judgemental women they have ever met. Ouch! I only know one woman like that and no amount of gentle rebuke will change her.  I can see why people would lump us all together and think we are part of a "clique"  whose members act like they are better than everyone else and excludes people who aren't exactly like them.

I would hope that people see a sweet spirit in us that points them to Christ. It's late so I think I'm heading to bed. Not to mention I have a sore throat that started early this week and it seems to love me so much that it won't go away.

Christian Women's Headcoverings

On a recent trip to Los Angeles I noticed a huge presence of Muslim women with their various types of coverings all of which clearly identified them as Muslim or were some of them actually Christian women?

The Bible in 1 Corinthians 11 doesn't give any size, color etc regarding type of coverings but I wonder if we Christian ladies are going to obey this scripture should our coverings convey that we are Christians and not Muslim?  This is just a question that's been on my mind lately. I've seen pictures of lovely Christian ladies who cover but their coverings indicate they might be mistaken for Muslim.
Please don't think I'm condemning any Christian woman who choses to wear those type of coverings. I'm just wondering if the Muslim type of coverings is ok for a Christian woman to wear. Those who choose to respond I'm looking forward to your answers.
