The battle over the statement on marriage by Chik-Fil-A executive Dan Cathy has stirred up strong emotions throughout the country. Radical homosexual activists and humanists are attacking Chik-Fil-A hoping to destroy them because of their biblical stance on marriage, and around the country hundreds of thousands of Christians are rallying to support Chik-Fil-A.

However it is a huge mistake to think that this war is only about Chik-Fil-A. This is the opening battle of all out war on Christianity in this nation. Radical homosexuals and humanists will not stop if they successfully hurt Chik-Fil-A; they will not be content until homosexual marriage is a constitutionally protected right in this nation and until every child is indoctrinated with the lie that homosexuality is perfectly natural.

The battle over Chik-Fil-A is a springboard to all out attack on American churches. The Obama administration is already attacking religion through Obama care mandates, and now their attack is being embraced by the radical homosexual and humanist movements. They will not stop until homosexuality is a protected right—a springboard to attack the non-profit status of every church who has the courage to call homosexuality a sin against a holy God.

It is human nature to not want to get involved in battles that we think do not affect us. We want to mind our own business and not be at risk if we feel we have nothing to gain or lose. Do our Christian leaders really believe that the radical homosexual lobby does not have Christianity in their gun sights, ready to attack and destroy the institution of the church? If they actually believe the Chik-Fil-A battle does not concern Christianity in this nation, then they are either blind or incredibly naïve. Spiritual war is upon us in this nation and sticking our heads in the sand like an ostrich will not make it go away.

Mark my words—if Chik-Fil-A is hurt by the attack on them, the radical homosexual activists, sadly led by some who call themselves “Christians”, will turn its guns on the church. And the church is ill-prepared for the great battle that awaits us. If we do not realize war is upon us and begin to stand up for the truth of the Bible immediately, we are headed into deep trouble as an institutionalized church.

For all of you Christians who call yourself ‘peacemakers”—compromising with Islam, homosexuality and other affronts to God—how is that working for you so far? There is a huge difference between being a peacemaker and a traitor, ashamed of the gospel. Where are our Christian leaders boldly defending the biblical institution of marriage? Many are sitting this battle out, afraid to be seen as unloving or uncaring. Well folks it is time to choose a side in this great battle for truth. No more sitting on the fence, playing both sides of the issues. We are not politicians, we are disciples of Jesus Christ—light and salt to the world; a beacon of truth in a world of lies; we are supposed to be pointing the lost to the gospel of salvation! Instead many of our leaders are pointing the lost to the abyss because we are afraid of being seen as intolerant; or because we fear losing a few lukewarm Christians from our churches.

If you want to just keep sticking your head in the sand as a Christian, hoping this war will not affect you, that’s your choice. But if you are a Christian leader who is afraid of a battle over the truth of God’s Word—afraid to call out sin for what it is—then we respectfully ask that you remove yourself from leadership and make way for a leader who will.

We need strong, principled Christian leaders for the war that is upon us. We can no longer tolerate leaders who compromise out of fear. Now is not the time for compromise or ambiguity from our Christian leaders. Leadership—true biblical leadership—requires courage. Lead, follow or get out of the way—please!
