Modern-day liberals are the poster children for intolerance, and the self-proclaimed “woke” secular forces are leveling disgraceful attacks on Christian businesses and charitable organizations.
During the Obama years, anti-Christian groups were encouraged to attack Christians with impunity. The previous administration was open arms to elevating secular and Muslim rights over Christians and Jews. Former President Barack Obama went as far as to undermine long-standing ally Israel in favor of Muslim nations, and insisted hard-working Americans scuttle the greeting “Merry Christmas” in favor of the secular “happy holidays.”
The tone, tenure, and Obama-Biden policies were overtly anti-Christian and anti-Jew, although the pair spoke out both sides of their mouth on the issue. People of faith and intolerant woke liberals understood that American Christians were under siege. The historic upset of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 elections by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence stopped the subtle atheist secularization of the country, and the left has since declared war.
“Some of the loudest voices for tolerance today have little tolerance for traditional Christian beliefs,” Pence said at the 46th Liberty University commencement. “So, as you go about your daily life, just be ready, because you are going to be asked not just to tolerate things that violate your faith, you’re going to be asked to censor them, to bow down to the idols of popular culture.”
The vice president’s words have resonated through the American landscape as left-wing hate groups relentlessly targeted charities such as the Salvation Army and private franchises, including Chick-fil-A. The fast-food franchise has been discriminated against by LGBTQ organizations and even liberal elected officials who tried to ban the company from college campuses and airports. In November, Chick-fil-A decision-makers made a deal with the woke agitators to stop donating to Christian organizations, including the Paul Anderson Youth Home and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Salvation Army, among others, in an effort to placate LGBTQ hate.
Chick-fil-A has already begun donating to historically left-wing extremists groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and others that are diametrically opposed to conservative Christian values. But what Chick-fil-A is fast discovering that its show of cowardice has woke liberals smelling blood in the water. In Canada, woke mobs have gone on the offensive.
“Canada supports diversity,” protestors outside a Chick-fil-A franchise reportedly said. “Chick-fil-A is a homophobe, fear-mongering,” and “pushing an agenda that is hateful and is something that should not be welcomed in Canada. I really don’t want to see them in this country.”
There’s a reason that governments have a standing policy to never negotiate with terrorists. That’s because once they get their hooks into you, the slow bloodletting never stops. Winning a fight with Chick-fil-A has only emboldened the misguiding radicals who want to tear Christian values down one brick at a time.
Numerous woke LGBTQ organizations have been front and center in the attacks on Christian charity organizations. So intolerant have the liberal extremists become that openly gay South Bend Mayor and Democrat presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg has come under attack for his Christianity and association with the Salvation Army. The gay community publication, Out, published a scathing rebuke under the headline, “Pete Buttigieg Volunteered for the Homophobic Salvation Army.”
“The gesture would be super nice of Buttigieg if the Salvation Army didn’t have a well-documented history of discriminating against LGBTQ+ people in need,” the Out article reportedly stated. “And while that’s all admirable, it’s still fighting against decades of persecution and intolerance justified by religion. Even famously homophobic chicken peddlers Chick-fil-A recently severed its relationship with the Salvation Army, and when you’re gay and less sensitive about anti-queerness than Chick-fil-A, that’s pretty bleak.”
Contrary to what hate-laden wokesters believe, the Salvation Army remains an evangelical-based organization that provides financial assistance, resources, and food for struggling people regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. The organization has approximately 1.5 members worldwide who Billy Graham reportedly said are the embodiment of “Christianity in action.” The Salvation Army “soldiers” vow to help the needy and further clean living free of alcoholism, drug addiction, and other challenges confronting everyday people. That is what the liberal woke activists are fighting against.
