On the Thursday edition of TRUNEWS, host Rick Wiles breaks the story on radio that restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A is listed as a leading sponsor of a “faith-based” homosexual film and arts festival. The festival is sponsored by the group Level Ground, who describe themselves on their website as:
There are too few places for gracious conversation about the things that matter to us most deeply. Our churches, our families, and our selves are being broken in the crossfire. Cultural tensions continue to rise, along with rates of suicide, homelessness, and general absolution of faith. Each of us — whether gay, straight, old, young, religious or post-faith — have something at stake in the dialogue about faith, gender, and sexuality.
Chick-Fil-A in the past has presented a ‘conservative’ or even ‘evangelical’ image, which has gained the support and loyalty of Christians nationwide. Chick-fil-A came under fire in 2012 from homosexual advocates after President Dan Cathy spoke in favor of Biblical marriage.
The sponsorship of the film festival, which took place earlier this month in Nashville, has garnered the reactions of Chick-Fil-A customers to start a petition drive to bring the matter to the attention of believers around the country, and to the corporate management of the fast-food chain.
Rick Wiles pointed out that in August 2012, over 600,000 people stood in line at Chick-Fil-A restaurants nationwide to show their support for traditional marriage. He also pointed out that this recent step away from those values follows the restaurant’s participation in providing food for a homosexual pride parade this summer in Iowa.
Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-Fil-A, now says he “made a mistake in endorsing traditional marriage…every leader goes through different phases of maturity, growth and development and it helps by recognizing the mistakes that you make, and you learn from those mistakes. If not, you’re just a fool. I’m thankful that I lived through it and I learned a lot from it.”
Rick Wiles skewered these comments by Cathy, and the recent sponsorship of the pro-homosexual event in Nashville, by recommending that the fast food chain add a new item to their menu.
“Yellow-bellied weasel,” Wiles suggested.
