Evangelicals need to stop being wimps

Evangelicals need to stop being wimps

In July 2012 I was speaking at a youth retreat in the mountains of Tennessee when I received a call from CNN.  It seemed that Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy had publicly commented on the issue of same-sex marriage and now the gay mafia were out to destroy him and his restaurant chain.  Would I, asked CNN, be willing to offer the orthodox Christian perspective on homosexuality and defend Chick-fil-A in this controversy?  After reviewing Cathy’s remarks and concluding that they were neither outrageous nor biblically incorrect, I agreed to the interview and, later that day I defended the Christian position on the network as vigorously as possible in the time that I had.

Shortly thereafter, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee called for Christians to mobilize and show their support for the embattled fast food restaurant with “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”  They did.  Lines at the restaurant stretched for blocks.  This event marked the first time I could remember Christians fighting back rather than meekly submitting to the media and special interest bullies.
