It's Not About Chicken Sandwiches, It's About Jesus

Trevin Wax's conclusion to his post on Chick-Fil-A and double standards in our culture in reference to religious views:
So how should we respond? We’ve got to go beyond boycotts and political statements and feigned offense at perceived persecution. We’re called to love those who ostracize us, not boycott back. So let’s trumpet the message that Jesus is for all kinds of sinners, from the self-righteous deacon to the promiscuous transsexual, no matter what kind of vitriol comes our way.

The world tells homosexuals, “It gets better.” The church tells homosexuals, “Jesus is better.”

And that is why this boycott is really about Him.
Read the rest.

Someone is using stripping your religion of its message of compassion and using that twisted version of your Savior for profit. I cannot think of a more revolting departure from the teachings of Jesus. It is antithetical to every single thing he stood for.
