In response to the letter writer who defends Chick-Fil-A as a “Christian business model,” I doubt that most people care one way or the other about the religion of the company’s owners and staff. As a Christian myself, I am dismayed that the writer quotes Jesus using the word “hate” three times in the writer’s Bible. The Gospels quote Jesus using the words “peace” and “love” many times. Jesus is famous in our culture, whether or not we read the Bible, for preaching “love thy neighbor as thyself.” When some of us object to this company’s policy against homosexuals, it is because such a policy expresses hate, disguised as righteous disapproval — not love.
