Guilty as charged?

Controversy has run rampant over the last couple of years concerning Chick-fil-A's stance on issues of marriage and homosexuality.

I have linked to an article by Shane Windmeyer (an activist in the LBGT community) concerning his talks with Dan Cathy (Chick-fil-A's president)...talks that were carried out as "people with opposing views, not opposing people".

In the end, it is not about eating (or eating a certain chicken sandwich). It is about sitting down at a table together and sharing our views as human beings, engaged in real, respectful, civil dialogue. Dan would probably call this act the biblical definition of hospitality. I would call it human decency. So long as we are all at the same table and talking, does it matter what we call it or what we eat?

Take a few moments to read and reflect on two people in the middle of a divisive issue who desire honest dialogue based on trust...
