Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”
The city council of a Canadian town canceled an event in a city-owned facility because they did not want to be associated with the Christian beliefs of Chick-Fil-A.
An event center in Nanaimo, British Columbia was scheduled to be rented out to a Georgia-based leadership organization that was putting on a simulcast for business leaders to develop their skills. The event was sponsored in part by Chick-Fil-A. When the town’s city council discovered the restaurant was a co-sponsor, they voted 8-1 to cancel the event.
City Council member Jim Kipp said that Christian beliefs were the same as the Boko Haram terrorists killing thousands in Nigeria. He said that Biblical Christianity was “organized crime.”
“I find [Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy’s beliefs] almost to be a criminal point of view in this day and age,” he claimed.
City staff told the council members that the event had nothing to do with the Christian beliefs of the restaurant’s president, but the council members were not interested in the information.
A column in the Tornado Sun newspaper called the council’s actions “shocking bigotry” against Christianity.
