Forget judge not that you be not judged (Matthew 7:1), Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-fil-A and the son of its late founder S. Truett Cathy, has passed judgement on all white Christians, calling on us to repent of our racism. I don't know about you, but I find Cathy's attempt to play the role of the Holy Spirit, who alone is in the world to convict us of sin and to convince us to repent, an outlandish undertaking by someone way too big for his breeches who is trying to fill shoes way too big for his little clay feet. According to Cathy, the vandalizing of about a dozen Chick-fil-A restaurants during recent riots should not result in white Christians pointing our finger at the vandals, who Cathy alleges were justifiably incensed. Instead, the vandalism, according to Cathy, should result in white Christians pointing our finger at ourselves, for injustice against black Americans. Apparently, Cathy not only believes white Christians should be universally condemned for our own innate racism, but also as instigators of the sins of others, whose exasperation with us makes their sins against others excusable.
Speaking with Louie Giglio, Pastor of Passion City, and Lecrae, a Christian rapper, Dan Cathy called on caucasian Christians to "pick up the baton" and march in the Black Lives Matter Movement's parade. Unwillingness on are part to do so, will, Cathy insists, be most "shameful." To show he's unashamed of his succumbing to the Black Lives Matter Movement, Cathy knelt and shined the tennis shoes of the black Christian rapper Lecrae. Yet, instead of a shining example of what a Christian should be, I find Dan Cathy a typical example of the spiritual sham being passed off as real Christianity today, a Christianity that refuses to kneel only before the absolute Lordship of Jesus Christ, but is quick to bow at the world's behest to a million and one other things, like the Black Lives Matter Movement.
