Tweet of the Day

Relentlessly fighting for our "rights" always rubs me the wrong way a bit.  We are Christians after all.  No matter how much we fight we'll never arrive.  God doesn't call us to be doormats, but he does say that suffering is the pathway for his Church's mission to move forward.  The pathway will never be lined with legislation.  We follow a murdered Savior after all.  So, yes, some people should probably fight for our rights but it probably shouldn't be the emphasis in our churches.  It certainly wasn't the emphasis in the early church.

All that to say, I thought this shed a little needed perspective in light of all the hyperness flying around right now about Chick-Fil-A.  If we are truly "tolerant" can't this issue cut both ways?
