Story lifted from a new Black Progressive site that I am monitoring- Kulture Kritic
I actually have to give credit to the posters at Kulture Kritic.
They rejected D.L. Hughley's arguments though not with the justifications that I would you.
YOU CAN'T USE "JESUS" AGAINST A PERSON WHO WILL BRING HIS OWN "JESUS" TO THE TABLE WHEN YOU ARE IN AN DEBATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I HATE this fraudulent argument tactic as seen in D.L. Hughley's article on "Huffington Post Black Voices" - OWNED by AOL.
You and I sure have had our share of good times. I fondly recall the first moment I ever met you: it was at the Atlanta airport. I'd always heard about you, and was a little nervous to approach. You were everything everyone said you were and more. It was truly love at first bite. I told you I'd come back, and I did -- time and time again. We met in various cities all over the country, each time better than the last, as if we'd never been apart. Isn't that what true love is, where it picks up right it left off?
You can imagine my excitement when I heard you were moving west to my city, Los Angeles. I'd be able to see you as much as I wanted, with no shame or recriminations. Our love would no longer have to be in secret. We could love out loud, for the entire world to see. I was in bliss, and for a time I was truly truly happy.
But baby, lately you've been doing me dirty. You've been speaking with a forked tongue, spewing hate instead of frying love. Who would have thought that a chicken sandwich would become a symbol for both free speech and intolerance at the same time? It brings a whole new meaning to the question, "Do you it want light or dark?"
I don't understand why you're jeopardizing what we have. You're forcing me to choose between my heart and my stomach. Your president has said that you believe that a marriage is only between a man and a woman. But if anyone keeps eating at your establishment, the only relationship that'll matter is between a man and his cardiologist. It's not like anyone, gay or straight, is getting married in your restaurant -- nor will any gay couple ever be serving fried food at their nuptials.

Not Good For Your Cholesterol.
You say that gay marriage is a sin, like in Leviticus 19:22. But a preceding verse, Leviticus 17:14, says, "You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off." You don't cook your chicken in a kosher way. On what grounds are you picking and choosing which edicts to follow?
Is this all because your President, Dan Cathy, has both male and female names? I can see how that can lead to a confusion with one's gender identity. But whether he's transgendered, cisgendered, questioning, or in transition, he's still one of God's children deserving of empathy and compassion.
Don't get me wrong. I support Mr. Cathy's right to think what he wants and vote however he sees fit. But like the Good Book says, we need sanctuaries in this world, places where a man can go to escape his thoughts. That used to be you. Now I have to wonder if I'm doing the right thing when I step inside your doors, if I am subsidizing perspectives that I am vehemently opposed to. Ignorance is bliss, girl, especially in your industry. Do you really want your customers to start thinking when they step foot in your doors? They'd run out of there faster than -- and you'll pardon the expression -- a bat out of hell. They'll go looking to put something healthier into the God-given temple that is their body.
When have fast food and politics ever intermingled before? Arthur Treacher's has never impressed sailors into the British navy, not even once. Burger King didn't send his royal troops to support us in Iraq. Long John Silver has left his pirating days behind him, and now is a peaceful member of our community. Pizza Hut did not try to declare itself a Habitat for a Humanity. It's not the gay community that is freaky, outspoken and different. It's you, baby.
You say that that's a good thing, that you operate under your own rules. You point out that, unlike your rivals, you're closed on Sunday. Isn't it ironic that Sunday is the most socially segregated day of the week? We go to church, a place where everyone looks like us, talks like us and thinks like us. Not only is Chick-Fil-A closed on Sundays; but so are many hearts and minds. Apparently, you think this is a good thing.
So Chick-Fil-A, baby, I guess what I'm struggling to say, as I fight back the tears and wipe the grease from my fingers, is this. It's not that I don't love you; we both know that's not true. I know I'll never find another like you. But baby, we are growing in two different directions. I'm afraid I won't be able to see you anymore.
May God bless and keep you,
D. L. Hughley
PS I would have written this on one of your fine napkins, but it was just too painful a reminder of the way we were.
I CAN'T STAND INTELLECTUAL FRAUD!!!!!!
If A Group Were To Picket Chris Bridges Restaurant At The Atlanta Airport
- BECAUSE Of The Use Of The Words "Bitch" and "Nigga" In His Lyrics That Are Put Into The Mainstream For Consumption
- BECAUSE His Old Restaurant Staged The "Housewives Of Atlanta" And IT Has Damaged The Image Of Black Women
IF the protesters are WHITE - they will be accused of seeking to economically suppress a BLACK BUSINESS OWNER - BECAUSE they are RACISTS
IF the protesters are BLACK - they will be accused of seeking to economically suppress a BLACK BUSINESS OWNER - BECAUSE they are UNCLE TOMS
In either event Chris Bridges marketing firm will pull out a list of SERVICE PROJECTS that he has done for Black folks and MONEY that he has distributed. NO ONE WILL NOTE that he BECAME A MILLIONAIRE using the INSULTING CONTENT that had so many Black people dancing because it had a nice beat. One day Congressman Joe Walsh will release a hip hop video in which he calls Obama "Son" in the lyrics and claims that it is merely ENTERTAINMENT. This won't stop the "Occupation" outside of his offices though.
Leviticus 19:22. But a preceding verse, Leviticus 17:14, says, "You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off.
Please accept my new label "USING The Bible To Enforce Your NO-Playa Hatting Intentions Without Thinking About 'WWJD' "
D.L. Hughley does what many intellectually corrupt people do.
When one "Bible Cherry Picking Christian" picks out a particular verse to enforce in a debate against him, Hughley - a "Bible Cherry Picking Christian" brings his how "Jesus To The Table" and works to check mate him.
THINK, THINK, THINK, THINK PEOPLE!!!!
What do you believe D.L. Hughley thinks about Christians that READ THE BIBLE and seek to ENFORCE ALL OF THE RULES "under the law"?
Do you think that Hughley RESPECTS them as an honorable, doctrinaire Christian?
OF COURSE NOT. Hughley sees them as a FUNDAMENTALIST and would mock them as INTOLERANT as well.
The goal of D.L. Hughley and other Progressive Fundamentalists is to GET YOU TO "KEEP YOUR JESUS TO HIMSELF" and he will do the same!!!!
He wants to push a SECULAR PROGRESSIVE agenda.
Instead of provoking all Christians to RISE UP TO A HIGHER STANDARD OF BEHAVIOR - he is more content with:
- Fighting against Right-wing Christians that dare to make use of biblical references that might thwart his Secular Progressivism
- TURN CHRISTIANITY into a SOCIAL JUSTICE DISTRIBUTION SCHEME - as a channel to feed what SECULAR PROGRESSIVISM has left:
D.L. Hughely's brand of "Jesus" is one of "No Fault Insurance".
YOU must prove that YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN as shown by your assistance to "The Least Of These".
The grand flaw/fraud of this scheme is that THEY who enjoy the confidence of "The Least Of These" - sitting in their pews or their soul lines is that they are not held into PROVING that in these engagements with "The Least Of These" or the "Misguided" that after "10 years time of providing 'social justice' they have CREATED A PERSON WHO CAN SEE THAT HE IS INDEED CREATED IN "THE IMAGE OF GOD" , showing this person a GREATER POPULATION OF "The Least Of These" that he AS A CHRISTIAN should be providing SOCIAL JUSTICE FOR.
"The False Religion Of Black Americanism" provokes so much of the "official conversation" among Black people discussing MARGINAL ISSUES - while the truth remains: THE BLACK AMERICAN CULTURAL CONSCIOUSNESS is not equipped to offer ANY STRUCTURAL SUPPORT to ANY OTHER BLACK DISAPORATIC POPULATION around the world - as proof of their own "Christianity"
