I read the article by Cynthia Tucker and it seems she was more interested in bringing up the subject of bigotry, segregation and civil rights than the subject of marriage. I don’t see any connection with these things and a person’s right to choose God’s plan for marriage or man’s plan.
Ms. Tucker said in the article that she vigorously disagreed with the Cathys or the Bible on the subject of marriage. She seems to favor same-sex marriage. Let’s look at the Bible’s plan. In the beginning, God made man of the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:7). Then he made woman out of one of Adam’s ribs (Genesis 2:21-23). God blessed them (man and woman) and told them to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:27-28).
Let’s reason together. If God had made two men or two women, they could not multiply and none of us would be here, including the gay people. Just think ... when Noah and his family went into the ark at the time of the flood, if they had all been one gender none of us would be here.
The people at Chick-fil-A are right that marriage should be between one man and one woman. But the people at Chick-fil-A are just as wrong about closing on Sunday as they are right about marriage.
There is no scripture in God’s word that says that Sunday or the first day of the week is any kind of holy or blessed day, or that we should honor or observe it in any way. There is plenty of scripture to keep, honor and observe the seventh day, or Saturday (Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:8-11; Isaiah 66:22-23; Luke 4:16; Mark 2:27-28; Acts 17:2; Revelation 22:14). Please think on these things.
