Billy Graham Defends Chick-fil-A, Traditional Marriage Amid Uproar

Renowned evangelist Billy Graham – who has been among the top 10 of USA Today/Gallup poll's annual most admired people in the world list more than 50 times – issued a statement Thursday in support of Chick-fil-A's leaders and their public stance on marriage.

Graham called Chick-fil-A's founder Truett Cathy and his son and company president Dan Cathy "good friends" whom he has known for many years. And he applauded the Cathys for being able to grow their family-owned chicken sandwich restaurant without "compromising their values." Within less than 50 years, Chick-fil-A has expanded to more than 1,600 stores and had over $4 billion in sales last year.

"Each generation faces different issues and challenges, but our standard must always be measured by God's word," said Graham, who is sometimes called the pastor to presidents for his close relationships with U.S. commander-in-chiefs. "I appreciate ...

But Jim, in your earlier post, you didn't say don't let Limbaugh and Letterman do your thinking for you, just Limbaugh. Forget your independence for a time? And you went back 9 years to find the Limbaugh thing, eh? Good for you. Diligence is a good thing.

Do you think there is some moral equivalency between his addiction to pain meds, stating he is making no excuses, admitting he is no role model, and Letterman's revealing of sex with staffers? No wonder you somehow include Bush when you manage a complaint about Democrats.

Let's see Mike, also get information the National Review, Townhall, e.g, Ron Paul: Too Close to Kooky By the way, the Jewish World Review is hardly a liberal source either, Congress warned that al-Qaida in Iraq is coming to America. You know, liberal sources like that. Ah, one more liberal source, which isn't liberal anymore, though may have been when the following article was done, but still lost viewers for aping Fox News, in fact the Pres. of it has just resigned.
Rush Limbaugh wrote:

from, Limbaugh admits addiction to pain medication

I don't think he or that the liberal Dave Letterman should be paid attention to (I ignore both), both seem to be covered with teflon and are never fired.

The Papists still don't get it, do they? But thats the way God has planned it "pernicious ways" 2Peter 2.2.

But for those enthusiastic idolaters of the Roman church -
Isaiah 44:9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
10 Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?
16 He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire: 17 And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.
Deut 27:15 Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image...

Now that has always been a problem, "Catholics being told how to vote," by the Magisterium.
Pastor Robert Dabney wrote:
We are well aware that numerous papists...declaring that there is a Romanist vote in this country which is just as independent of their priesthood and as free as any other. Of course there is. The hierarchy is a very experienced and dexterous driver. It does not whip in the restive colts, but humors them awhile until she gets them well harnessed and broken. But the team as a whole must yet travel her road, because they have to believe it infallible. We assure these independent Romanist voters that they are not good Catholics; they must unlearn this heresy of independent thought before they are meet for the Romanist paradise.
excerpt from, The Perils of Popery.

By the way, fellow Protestants, don't like the likes of Rush Limbaugh do your thinking for you, I know sometimes it hurts, but do your own thinking anyway, in the political arena.

Reformed Baptist Pastor Sean Harris:

This two-minute video about the upcoming election by the Catholic Church is excellent …

“Cardinal Timothy Dolan from New York City is the one taking the lead on [traditional marriage...]. That is, standing up for religious freedom. He is very concerned that we are losing this freedom in America. And if you’re an evangelical you better be just as concerned as he is. Many believe when [Pope] Benedict [XVI] passes on, Dolan could possibly become the first American pope of the Roman Catholic Church.

“He’s very politically conservative. He’s very religious[ly] conservative as far as Roman Catholic teachings. In [reading many articles about him], he almost comes across as an evangelical Roman Catholic priest … especially if you put him in a navy blue suit, put a yellow tie on him and a white shirt.”

An endorsement by Billy is something to be shunned just as Christ and the Apostle Paul shunned the validation by demons. Billy is of the world, Billy Graham Believes Catholic Doctrine of Salvation Without Bible, Gospel, or Name of Christ.

Billy always did have a problem with, James 2:1-4. Tell Billy not only read the Bible accurately, Principles of Bible Interpretation, but to actually believe it.

In this Satan's world Christians do not have any rights especially freedom of speech.

The non-Christians have freedom of speech and freedom of sin and transgression, (both reprobate and religiously reprobate eg the RCC). Thus Satan and sin provides them with freedom to persecute the Christian and to mute, confound and censor the Scriptures in society.

I'd like to see more people defending FREE SPEECH, including restaurant-owners' rights to criticize something they don't like. Self-absorbed, thin-skinned Americans will be the death of free speech everywhere in this country unless something is done about it.
Agreed.
