How divided have we become?
It may seem small but we are on a slippery slope and this is discrimination based on faith.
Much more hidden and deceptive by the PC society we have become but it is building.
If all this can come from one company’s faith and those that support them, what lies ahead?
Thank God for his blessed assurance that he will keep us from the worst!

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The controversy over Chick-Fil-A may now have impacted the Dallas Police Department.
CBS 11 has learned a Dallas Police Sergeant brought a sandwich from the embattled restaurant chain to work with him last Wednesday, August 1, a day known around the country as Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day.
When the Sergeant arrived at his post at the Southeast patrol, words were exchanged between himself and two female officers.
And while it is unclear who started the argument, police have launched an investigation into the matter.
A department spokesperson says the issue is not whether the sergeant brought the sandwich into the substation, but whether inappropriate comments were exchanged between him and the two female officers while on duty.
The DPA points out the two female officers happen to be homosexuals. They also point out that the sergeant was responsible for reading the evening bulletins to all officers in the Southeast patrol that evening, including information on possible crowd control issues at Chick-Fil-A’s in the area.
Chick-Fil-A recently came under fire for the company CEO’s stance on traditional marriage roles.
The association says what concerns them most is that before the internal investigation into the matter was resolved the sergeant was moved to a midnight shift at the Lew Sterret Justice Center, which the association views as punishment.
The association also views the move as the department taking a stance on the issue before the full internal investigation was complete.
The Dallas Police Association says it is pushing for mediation in the incident between all three officers, but as of this point, that has not occurred.

If you have not asked Christ into your life, the essential gospel is that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and that He was raised on the third day (1 Cor. 15:3-4). Believing this is the only qualification for salvation. We are sinners in need of a savior. Jesus died for our sins, and to prove that His death was sufficient for us, God raised Him from the dead on the third day. Believing in our heart that God raised Him from the dead is our assurance that He will raise us, too.
3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, (1 Cor. 15:3-4).
