Chick fil A Sign
Chick-fil-A is very open with their biblical values, and puts them into practice in their restaurants.

Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is weighing in on Black Lives Matter, the killings of unarmed black men by police, and broader concepts of racial injustice. His stance: white Christians shouldn’t “miss this moment” to speak up because not doing so would “[fail] our generation.” Cathy’s comments were made during a panel discussion at Atlanta’s Passion City Church, where he also implored white Christians to "repent" for the sin of racism.

Cathy’s comments came on the heels of the Rayshard Brooks slaying in a Wendy’s parking lot in Atlanta, where Chick-fil-A is based. “Until [white people are] willing to just pick up the baton and fight for our black, African-American brothers and sisters, which they are as one human race, we’re shameful,” Cathy said during the roundtable discussion.

Right after Cathy declared that white Americans should repent for racism, he got up and shined the shoes of Christian rapper Lecrae, who is black – which made for quite an awkward moment.

But to Cathy's credit, he’s putting his money where his mouth is by pledging to help Atlanta-area communities hit hard by racism, and he's donated money to local black-owned businesses.

Involvement in Politics

If these headline-worthy comments come as a surprise, remember that Chick-fil-A has not been shy about making political statements in the past. The company is unabashedly Christian, to the point that their restaurants aren’t open on Sundays so that employees can enjoy their families and attend church if they so desire.

Chick-fil-A has also faced numerous controversies over CEO Dan Cathy's defense of “traditional marriage” and donations the company has made to anti-LGBT causes. The issue first sprung up in 2012 when Cathy revealed he believes marriage is between one man and one woman. But it reached a fever pitch last year when the San Antonio city council voted to ban Chick-fil-A from the San Antonio airport for their “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior”.

That, in turn, prompted an investigation from Texas’ Attorney General and a “Save Chick-fil-A bill” that moved quickly through the Texas House and was signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott just a few weeks later.

Selective Repentance?

Given this checkered history, Cathy's full-throated support of BLM has led some to accuse Chick-fil-A of engaging in "selective repentance." They ask: if you champion introspection about America's treatment of people of color, but avoid a similar discussion about the LGBT community you've spurned for years, can your concern be considered genuine? 

Because Chick-fil-A is in the news frequently over their anti-LGBT views, they’ve become a bit of a rallying point for Christians, many of whom support the sandwich chain because they’re one of the only big businesses that share their traditionalist Christian views.

Study: Anti-LGBT Beliefs Tied to Christian Nationalism

Many folks are happy to see Chick-fil-A leadership taking matters of injustice seriously. But for the LGBT community, the company's opposition to LGBT rights has been a glaring black mark on their record.

Not only has Chick-fil-A put money towards opposing marriage equality and other important initiatives, but they’ve also become a bit of a rallying point for Christians – many of whom support the sandwich chain primarily because of their traditionalist Christian views. In doing so, critics say, Chick-fil-A has actively emboldened the opposition to LGBT rights.  

A recent study published in the American Journal of Community Psychology underlined this connection even further. It found that opposition to the advancement of LGBT rights – including gay marriage – is linked to a desire for national Christian dominance.

The author of the study noted that "Our analyses revealed that opposition to sexual- and gender-minority rights was correlated with Christian and political conservatism, and with the belief that Christians should be the dominant group in society."

It’s certainly interesting to think about in the context of Dan Cathy’s comments, at a time when he’s opening his heart to the BLM movement, while at the same time keeping the door shut to the LGBT community.

What do you think? Is the Chick-fil-A CEO asking for selective repentance? Is it possible to honestly support civil rights for one group, but not for another?

      Why bring in Rev. Al Sharpton? He is a respected minister, human rights and civil rights activist and an incredible orator. Please refrain from disrespecting him here. Since you claim to be a minister, you might learn something from him. Maybe even read, "Why its so hard for White People to talk about Racism" Dr. Robin Di Angelo. Also another good one is, "White Rage" by Dr. Carol Anderson. Owning slaves has nothing to do with the topic. It is much deeper than that. Your white privilege has hampered your ability to see the forest through the trees. Both of the the books are excellent and and help give you your answer. Blessings.

        Best of all read John Bolton's book. I've pre-ordered mine with Amazon.

        1. T Kosse`'s Avatar T Kosse`

          John Bolton: Ten biggest claims (continue because of a limit of 5000 words)

          1. Trump suggested he wanted to serve more than two terms More now on President Trump's conversations with Xi Jinping. Mr Bolton says Mr Trump told China's leader that Americans were keen for him to make the constitutional changes needed for him to serve more than two terms.

          "One highlight came when Xi said he wanted to work with Trump for six more years, and Trump replied that people were saying that the two-term constitutional limit on presidents should be repealed for him," he wrote in an extract published by the Wall Street Journal.

          "Xi said the US had too many elections, because he didn't want to switch away from Trump, who nodded approvingly."

          1. Trump didn't know the UK was a nuclear power... Britain was the third country after the US and the Soviet Union to test an atomic device, in 1952. But that the UK is part of the small club of nuclear-armed states appears to have been news to President Trump.

          One extract told of a 2018 meeting with then UK Prime Minister Theresa May in which an official referred to Britain as a nuclear power.

          Mr Trump is said to have replied: "Oh, are you a nuclear power?"

          The remark, Mr Bolton said, "was not intended as a joke".

          Donald Trump 'unaware UK was nuclear power', says former aide

          1. ... or if Finland was part of Russia Mr Bolton says there were other gaps in President Trump's knowledge.

          Before a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Finnish capital Helsinki, he is said to have asked if Finland was "kind of a satellite of Russia".

          According to Mr Bolton, intelligence briefings were not "terribly useful" since during most of them "he spoke at greater length than the briefers, often on matters completely unrelated to the subjects at hand".

          1. He was very close to actually quitting Nato President Trump has been a persistent critic of the Nato military bloc, calling on other members to boost their spending.

          Despite this the US remains a member, but Mr Bolton says that at a 2018 Nato summit Mr Trump had decided to quit.

          "We will walk out, and not defend those who have not [paid]," the president said, according to Mr Bolton.

          1. Invading Venezuela would be 'cool' One of the major foreign policy headaches for the Trump administration has been Venezuela, with the US a staunch opponent of its President Nicolás Maduro.

          In discussions on the matter, President Trump said it would be "cool" to invade Venezuela, and that the South American nation was "really part of the United States".

          Mr Bolton writes that in a May 2019 phone call Russian President Vladimir Putin pulled off a "brilliant display of Soviet-style propaganda" by likening Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó to 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, which "largely persuaded Trump".

          Mr Putin's objective was to defend his ally President Maduro, Mr Bolton writes. In 2018, Mr Trump labelled the leftist Mr Maduro a dictator and imposed sanctions, but he clung to power.

          In an interview with ABC News to be broadcast in full this Sunday, Mr Bolton says of Mr Trump: "I think Putin thinks he can play him like a fiddle."

          1. Even allies ridiculed him Mr Bolton's book contains several examples of White House officials mocking President Trump.

          He describes a dysfunctional White House, one in which meetings resembled "food fights" rather than considered efforts at policy-making.

          When he arrived at the White House, the then chief of staff John Kelly warned him, "this is a bad place to work, as you will find out".

          Even Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, considered a loyalist, is said to have written a note describing the president as "full of shit".

          SybilTheHeretic, I can agree with most of what you say. Not all racists are white. Reverend Al Sharpton is a glaring example of racism. However, he too shall stand in judgement before god one day, and he too will be called to answer for his sins. The BLM movement does indeed seem to be racist, and it surely has a destructive element among its' membership. Again, these individuals will all face gods judgement. However "Cancel Culture" has no place in society. We cannot selectively chose to remove people and events (or restaurant chains) from our history, and expect a better future simply because of this. If we have reprehensible figures in our past, we should take note of this, and use this history to learn lessons from them, while we strive for a better future for all people. Destroying Chic-fil-a will not serve all the people that are employed by them well. And it will not destroy Mr. Cathy, his beliefs, or his past offenses. What is needed here, is for Mr. Cathy to take a deep look inside his soul, and then for him to follow his heart and conscience in the future. If he chooses to repent his sins, then it will be better for him. But ultimately, Mr. Cathy has the free will that god granted to him, and he will do what he wishes, regardless of what we wish for him to do. Dean White

      I get kind of confused by the blame game.

      4 of my great grandparents were born post-1880 in Italy and did not come here until just before WW1. As I understand the prejudices of the time, they being Southern Italian, weren't considered "White."

      Another was born post-1870 in Lithuania, and emigrated in the mid-1880's. He was an Eastern European, and Jewish, not the most favored of immigrants.

      His wife was born to parents from Quebec, and was Metis on her mother's side.

      The last 2 were Irish, another "well-favored" immigrant group. Their grandfathers and great uncles were in the Union army and fought the Confederacy.

      As my parents taught me, I treat everyone I meet with courtesy, a friendly manner and tolerance. Learned that before we knew of Dr. King.

  1. Jay Wolf's Avatar Jay Wolf

    The need to repent is based upon each individual to determine if they have a sin to repent for, not to make such a broad demand of every white person. What has happened is tragic, but you cannot blame a whole race. To remove racism, gender bias, or any other type of ism or bias everyone needs to change their thinking and find a common language that removes the use of words that offend others. This means that all must be willing to no longer use offensive terminology. Remove the terms of black, white, Asian, gay, straight, bi, etc. We are all humans and we all are the same once you look past the melanin. We are all human and must remember that all lives matter. Are we to answer for the sins of our forefathers? I think not, we only need to focus upon the here and now. I think Dan Cathy forgets that there many others that were enslaved and shunned by those that lived an entitled life. The Irish, Chinese and others, but it seems many have overcome and moved beyond those issues. Dan needs to remember these facts and look at just himself and not judge all based upon a specific race. He is just helping to foster a racial divide.

    Since we all have free will then I choose not grace any of Dan Cathy's businesses with my presence or money.

      I don't care about what you claim I have forgotten. Whenever fragile white people get offended about the genocide, racism, theft and greed that we bring up here, they bring up slavery from other countries to change the narrative and make themselves feel better. You are living on stolen land and whether or not you like it. We Native People do not accept; your racist views and attitudes of superiority. To say others have overcome is a joke, again to soothe your white fragility.

Evidently, nobody can be a REAL Christian because people get to interpret their book how they want.

          It's easy to be a decent human being. As Socrates said, circa 400 BCE, “Do not do to others what would anger you if done to you by others.”

              Have had the genealogical research done by a professional. One of my 4th great grandmothers was Mohawk and one 6th great grandmother was Cree. Source was old Canadian fur company records.

              However, they were unable to firmly provide Clan or Family information beyond "parents were indigenous, of this tribe."

              Family Lore had my paternal grandfather's mother as 1/4 - 1/2 Mohawk. I wanted the truth, yes or no.

              I'm glad to know of the ancestry, but claim no heritage. I know little to nothing about customs, cultures, traditions, and most certainly have no family ties.

              Same research led to an 8th great grandmother born in Mali. Which news I also greeted warmly.

                I think, from the scanty information, my Mohawk 4th great grandmother may have been a member of the band, which lives at Quinte Bay. The indicator is that her husband was a paddler on the Montreal to Mackinaw Island run, and he would have been in that area at the proper time.

                The only name I have for her is Rosalie, her Baptismal name. They'd a son about a year before and Jean Baptiste Denis wanted to marry in the Church, thereby legitimizing Jean Baptiste III, who was my great grandmother's maternal grandfather.

    1. Dean Allen White's Avatar Dean Allen White

      Oh my! I've never entered the conversation here before, but the statement that "All human beings are created equal" is , quite simply, UNTRUE. Each of us has our own genetic make-up, and this determines if we will be short or tall, Athletic or restive, and a great number of other things. While we ARE all born without clothing or resources, that is where the equality ends. We inherit familial strengths and weaknesses, and these combinations set us apart, each from the other. Even siblings are not truly created equal. Having stated this obvious fact, I believe that the concept of equality is a commendable one. However, I cannot support the concept of "YOU OWE ME" because of differences between human beings. As an example, my father was a Christian man, and he served in the Army Air Force during WWII in the Phillipines. He was taken prisoner of war, and received severe mistreatment at the hands of several officers and enlisted men of the Imperial Japanese Army. He was then transported to Japan, to perform "Slave Labor" in a coal mine. What is the point here, you may ask? My father DID NOT HATE his oppressors. Nor do I. This is the "Christian" way to respond to all other humans. Was he wronged? Yes, he was. Did he like that? No, he did not. But in his Christian faith, he understood that only god has the right to judge, and that soldiers must perform their duties. He knew that any mistreatment he received was from individuals, not the entire Japanese people. And he also understood that one day, each of these individuals would stand judgement before god. He made it a point to teach his four children that we should "Forgive" even if we cannot "forget". Perhaps those that argue here could see the light, and stop playing the blame game with others, simply because of a small, physical difference, or a cultural difference. Chic-fil-a's owner can ask us all to repent our sins, this is his right, But we who hear his call, must decide if we have indeed sinned, and then decide if we wish to repent. Dean White

Just because our family has never owned slaves, been from countries that have ever been involved in slavery, or done anything overtly racist that we're aware of does NOT mean we are NOT part of the U. S. We, as caucasians, must recognize and AS A NATION repent for the inhumanities of slavery, Jim Crow, and every law and decision that made one group of people supposedly inferior to another--- and MOST CERTAINLY disadvantaged them for the past 400 years!!! Just as a black person who came more recently to the U.S. and whose family members were not enslaved or part of Jim Crow ALSO feels these indignities and this suffering AS AN AMERICAN (USA), as well as AS A HUMAN BEING. Existential guilt. Societal guilt. The guilt of OUR NATION. If we are a part of the U.S., we cannot say "oh, that wasn't me, I'm not part of it." OUR COLLECTIVE EXPERIENCE as a country is the issue. Those who refuse to acknowledge this are shallow and ignorant. That being said, I refuse to go to that restaurant because of their anti-LGBTQ militancy.

      My wife is Greek, and acknowledges that the history of her parents' birth country does indeed include slavery.

      There are very few cultures on Earth that did not have some sort of slavery. Heck, there are still outright slaves in Africa and Asia. There are also slaves, mainly due to human trafficking and the sex trade, in the Americas, Europe and Oceania. Likely the only continent that has not hosted slavery within the scope of human history has been Antarctica.

      No culture is blameless, but credit must be given where there has been strong and successful abolition.

      I left Christianity behind in March 1975, delved into many ways of thought and belief, ended with my current set of beliefs and practices 32 years ago.

      One tries to be a worthwhile person, and judge others on their actual words AND deeds, not the past of their forbears. An individual is not the Collective Experience. All the grand words in the world mean little, if you do no act upon them and build better community.

      Helping to build better community, which is better able to help individuals...I think and believe there is where the energy should go.

      Sorry but you are wrong. The Bible defines marriage in Genesis 2:24 as a union between one man and one woman. Jesus Christ upholds this definition of marriage in Matthew 19:5, as does the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 5:31. Any and all sexual activity which takes place outside of this context is treated as sinful, what Jesus calls ‘sexual immorality’ in Mark 7:21. Further to this, same-sex practice is specifically highlighted as sinful a number of times in Scripture. In God’s Law, for example, condemnations of same-sex practice are given in Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13. Further references are made in the New Testament. For example, in Romans 1:24-32, amid echoes to the Genesis creation account, both male and female same-sex practice are treated as sinful. Further references to the sinfulness of same-sex practice can be seen in 1 Corinthians 6:9 and 1 Timothy 1:10. So if you clearly dont know what you are talking about, then do us a favor and say nothing

        What the bible really says about homosexuality (continue because of a limit of 5000 words)

        Some Christians confidently assert that God did not create homosexual people "that way." This is important because they realize if God did create gays "that way," rejecting them would be tantamount to rejecting God’s work in creation. In pressing their “creation order” argument, some Christians are fond of saying, "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!" To bolster their position, they often cite Jesus’ words in Matthew 19:4-5, where he responds to a question about whether divorce is permissible:

        “Jesus answered, ‘Have you not read that the One who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh”? Therefore, what God has joined together, let no one separate.’

        ” From these words, some Christians draw the conclusion that heterosexuality is the creation norm and, thus, heterosexual marriage is the only legitimate way for people to form romantic relationships. Ironically, Jesus’ own words in this very same passage refute these conclusions.

        As the dialogue continues, Jesus’ disciples are disturbed by his strict teaching on divorce. The disciples say that if divorce is not a ready option, perhaps it would be best for a man not to marry a woman. Jesus responds:

        “Not everyone can accept this teaching, but only those to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let anyone accept this who can.” (Matthew 19:11-12)

        Here Jesus identifies three classes of men who should not marry women. Taking his categories in reverse order, first, there are those who have made themselves “eunuchs” for the kingdom of heaven, i.e., those who foreswear marriage to better serve God. Second, he mentions those who have been “made eunuchs by others,” an apparent reference to castrated males. But Jesus mentions a third category — eunuchs who were born that way. Some might argue that Jesus was referring to males born without testicles, but this would be extremely rare. Moreover, this interpretation ignores how the term “born eunuchs” was used in other literature of the time.

        In the ancient world, including ancient Jewish culture (as reflected in the Talmud), “natural” or “born” eunuchs were not associated with missing testicles. Rather, they were associated with stereotypically effeminate characteristics and behavior (just like modern gay men), and were thought by Rabbi Eliezer to be subject to “cure” (just like modern gays). Moreover, as we have also seen, eunuchs were commonly associated with homosexual desire. (For a complete discussion of the term "born eunuch" and the connection with homosexuality, see The Early Church Welcomed a Gay Man here: ) As a reasonably informed person of his time, Jesus would have been aware of this common view of eunuchs. Yet he very matter-of-factly asserts that some people are simply born that way. The implication of his statement is profound — God created gay people the way they are! Jesus says so.

        Unlike Rabbi Eliezer, Jesus feels no need to “cure” these born eunuchs. He speaks no words of condemnation. Rather he lists people born gay alongside another honored class (eunuchs for the kingdom), and accepts them as a natural part of God’s creation order.

        Thus, when Matthew 19 is read as a whole, we see Jesus teaches that most people are created for heterosexual marriage. (We too accept this as God’s predominant creation paradigm.) But, unlike some modern Christians, Jesus does not see this as the only honorable way to live. He acknowledges that some human beings have been created by God to follow a less common, but equally legitimate path. There are some who have been eunuchs from birth — made that way by God.

    What racism? I am half German and half member of the Wolf Clan of the Cherokee Nation and I am on the list of Native Americans at the BIA in Washington DC as well as being able to trace my linage on my fathers side clear back to the Dawes Roll (look it up). At NO time has my family on either side owned any slaves or have treated anyone any different then they treat another member of the Clan or other Nations Therefor nothing this guy says applies to me or anyone else in my family on either side or anyone in The Cherokee Nation. On the other hand I can claim racism on African Americans as out of 3000 members of the Wolf Clan, there are less then 400 of us left as the "Buffalo Soldiers" (black cavalry members) MASSACRED almost the whole membership of my fathers Clan in 1846. But I dont so why Blacks seem to think they are owed anything is beyond me. And dont even get me started on the Spanish and Mexicans who came across the border and decimated the Native Tribes/Clans/Nations and made slaves of them as well as committing genocide and actually wiping out whole nations of Natives. Seems they need to come to fixing their damage before they start demanding something from others

      Little Baby Danny, this is in rebuttal to your claim that "therefore nothing this guy says applies to me or anyone else in my family or either side or anyone in the Cherokee Nation": 1842 Slave Revolt in the Cherokee Nation: The Long, Thorny History of the Cherokee Who Owned African Slaves: Cherokee freedmen controversy: The Native Americans Who Owned Slaves: Cherokee Nation Expels Descendants Of Tribe's Black Slaves: So, you have been proved WRONG!!!! yet again!! Why do black people think that they are owed anything?!! Really?!! Possibly because they were brought here in chains against their will and 10 million black people died on slave ships. Cherokee Natives weren't brought here in chains against their will or die on slave ships. That might have something to do with it. "Buffalo Soldiers" who attacked and killed 3,000 members of the Wolf Clan, the same as white U.S. soldiers who attacked and killed Native Americans, were following their stupid orders and not questioning or disobeying them, but why wouldn't these "Buffalo Soldiers" resent Cherokee owners of black slaves just as much as white owners of black slaves and taken their revenge on them for that?!! So, Cherokees haven't been totally inoffensive and innocent toward black people, as you claim!!

          Did you ask them to give you a close shave or just a trim? Or maybe he is practicing to a brain surgeon. In Medieval times, a barber surgeon was a person who could perform surgical procedures including bloodletting, cupping therapy, pulling teeth, and amputation. Barbers could also bathe, cut hair, shave or trim facial hair, and give enemas. The surgeon came with the army at war but could be used by individuals in peacetime.

        2. T Kosse`'s Avatar T Kosse`

          The look of the barber pole is linked to bloodletting, with red representing blood and white representing the bandages used to stem the bleeding. The pole itself is said to symbolize the stick that a patient squeezed to make the veins in his arm stand out more prominently for the procedure. In Europe, barber poles traditionally are red and white, while in America, the poles are red, white and blue. One theory holds that blue is symbolic of the veins cut during bloodletting, while another interpretation suggests blue was added to the pole as a show of patriotism and a nod to the nation’s flag.

    1. William G Hackathorn's Avatar William G Hackathorn

      Perhaps you haven't heard Chick Fil A as a corporation was never anti-gay. The founder had his beliefs and actually voiced them. Not hate speech, but free speech and the opinion of a man not a corporation. People recognized that this man was unafraid to stand up for free speech by voicing his opinion on gay marriage, whether they agreed with him or not. Gay "militants" held "love-ins" where they publicly groped each other in the restaurants (something universally considered to be lewd and disgusting whether performed by gay or straight people) in protest, people were disgusted and came to the defense of free-speech and the restaurants have been packed and drive-thrus backed up ever since.

      This is surprising, because their food is especially bland.

      Recently, Chick Fil A has been trying to change it's image by doing such things as hosting "Drag Queen Story Time", to aid the drag queen community in their recruiting efforts, and supporting Black Lives Matter as they burn, loot and vandalize cities in the name of starting a race war which is hoped to influence 2020 election.

      People are people. For the most part everyone agrees with that. There are "supremacists" in every race by encouraging Black Lives Matter to expect white people to shine or kiss their boots they are not encouraging equality, coexistence and love, they are encouraging the racism of black supremacists and inflaming the hatred of supremacists of other races against blacks. This will increase racism on all sides.

      I expect that Chick Fil A is going to suffer greatly for their misguided pandering. Their food was never that good and most who patronized the place did so to support freedom of speech or Christian values. Now, that Chic Fil A supports racism, I expect their balance sheets will start looking ugly.

    John Bolton: Ten biggest claims in his Donald Trump book

    The latest offering from former National Security Adviser John Bolton has attracted more attention than most, given the author's high-ranking status and the nature of his claims.

    His work - The Room Where It Happened - portrays a president ignorant of basic geopolitical facts and whose decisions were frequently driven by a desire for re-election.

    Critics of Mr Trump have asked why Mr Bolton did not speak up during impeachment hearings, while the president himself has called his former top adviser on security matters "incompetent" and a "boring old fool".

    The White House tried to stop the book's release, but a judge denied its request on 20 June - three days before the book is due to go on sale. In any event, US media have obtained advance copies and have started publishing details from it. Here are some of the most eye-catching allegations.

    1. Trump wanted help from China to win re-election... In the book, Mr Bolton describes a meeting between President Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping at a G20 meeting in Japan last year.

    The US president "stunningly, turned the conversation to the coming US presidential election [in 2020], alluding to China's economic capability and pleading with Xi to ensure he'd win," Mr Bolton writes.

    "He stressed the importance of farmers and increased Chinese purchases of soybeans and wheat in the electoral outcome."

    Agriculture is one of the major industries in the Midwest American states that helped propel Mr Trump to victory in the 2016 election.

    John Bolton: Who is man behind Trump-Xi allegations? Trump 'sought Xi's help to win re-election' Why has Trump's niece written a damning memoir?

    1. ... and said building internment camps was the 'right thing to do' China's treatment of the Uighurs and other ethic minorities has brought international condemnation, with about a million people thought to have been detained in camps in the Xinjiang region.

    On Wednesday President Trump authorized sanctions against Chinese officials involved in the mass incarceration, prompting an angry response from China.

    But in Mr Bolton's book, when Mr Xi defended building the camps, the US president suggested he approved of China's actions.

    "According to our interpreter," Mr Bolton wrote, "Trump said that Xi should go ahead with building the camps, which Trump thought was exactly the right thing to do."

    1. Trump offered 'personal favours to dictators' The Chinese leader is not the only authoritarian Mr Bolton accuses the president of pandering to.

    Mr Trump was willing to intervene in criminal investigations "to, in effect, give personal favours to dictators he liked," Mr Bolton wrote.

    According to the book Mr Trump offered help to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2018 in a US investigation into a Turkish company over potential violations of Iranian sanctions.

    The US president is said to have agreed to "take care of things" and that the prosecutors involved were "Obama people".

    1. The Democrats should have gone further with impeachment efforts In the book, Mr Bolton backs up Democrats' allegations that President Trump wanted to withhold military aid to Ukraine to pressure its government into investigating his rival Joe Biden. The claim sparked impeachment efforts against Mr Trump.

    However, Mr Bolton criticizes the Democrats in his book, saying they committed "impeachment malpractice" by just focusing on Ukraine. He argues that if they had broadened the investigation more Americans would have been persuaded that President Trump had committed the "high crimes and misdemeanors" necessary to be removed from office.

    Mr Bolton does not say if the new allegations he makes are impeachable offences.

    He declined to testify in the process when it was in the House of Representatives late last year, then was blocked from appearing in the Senate by Republicans.

    When are people going to realize they determine if their life matters? Let me explain, if a person decided they are going to be what is considered normal, is their life important or not important? It is important to them is the answer. If they work to make their life and the lives they are part of, family, important and a priority is their life important? Yes it is. If they treat people like they want to be are they important? Yes. Should they be held accountable for the sins of others? Nope.

    Now, take the person who decides their life is not important. They may not think their life is important or not they just decide to do actions which are not positive. They drink in dangerous excess, take drugs, live a lifestyle which could be deadly, make choices which could end in a bad way and, don't really care what is going to happen. Does this life matter to me? Nope. They have decided what they want to do and if they don't want to be redirected let them suffer the consequences of their actions. Their outcome is not my fault and it is not my responsibility. Of course the ethical guide book called the bible says we should look out for our fellow man and all this, and I agree, we should be of assistance. If someone is gay and they are out doing what gay men have done for a long time, having sex with random men, and you tell this person they should be careful because they could get AIDS. Yet, the person does not listen to you and they continue to do their thing. You tell them again and they don't stop. Well, gay guy gets AIDS and he is not wondering why him. He is now coming to his friends who have said all along, stop what you are doing, to ask for assistance and help. Is it my responsibility to help him? It is my choice but should you keep wasting time on someone who would not accept your solid advice in the first place? Should I waste my resources supporting someone who did what they wanted to do but believes I should be there after the consequences have set in? Their lives don't matter to them so why should they matter to me.

    I don't care what race someone is. I don't care who they wake up with, as long is they are not abusing kids. If they believe their lives matter than they matter. But, if they don't then, they don't.

    Now, Chick-fil-A, you have told me how I and your franchisees should think and I think, I will no longer spend my money at your stores. You see, the lives of police officers who risk their lives to keep the people who believe my life does not matter away from me, their lives matter.

    I see there are a lot of white hypocrites on here posing as Christians, there is nothing Christ like in many of your self-serving comments. First, Jesus Christ was not a white man, nor was he a black man, he was a middle-eastern man whose skin tone would have been more like Arabic than any other race, so it is interesting that so called white Christians have pictures of a white Jesus. There is nothing Christian about not making this racial issue your problem, it was Pontius Pilate that washed his hands of the crucifixion, not the followers of Christ. So, for those who claim to be Christian to "wash" their dirty hands from this issue is hypocrisy. Washing your hands of it does not make you less culpable for it. There are so many Christian hypocrites that preach hatred and judgmental stone throwing, those who judge others and preach hatred are no more Christian than an unsaved soul, and are more likely to burn in the depths of hell. If you are a member of a religion that relishes in throwing stones at others, you should read you bible a little more carefully. You are probably just a hateful person in need of soul searching and saving through repentance.

    The buck stops here. If you give enough I will back your cause to your last dying breath. When the Spanish got to Cuba and Small Pox killed off most of the natives. They tried to replace them with Spanish citizens, but who could or would not work under those conditions. They die off. The Portuguese used slaves in Brazil to work in swamps after Small Pox killed off the local natives. One might ask why the high percentage of people in the Caribbean are Black. Because they could work in conditions where the white man would die off. That was the same with Southern US where conditions would kill the average white man. You brought in slaves to do the heavy lifting. So I guess I must feel guilty because all those people taken from Africa as slaves it is my fault. Not from me.

    The past is past, we are all to be children of the same universe and are to be ministers of one form or the other. Many races have faced Slavery. The Hebrews, the blacks, the Jews. and White Slavery ! Yes, the White folk were also under bondage. White slavery refers to the chattel slavery of Europeans, whether by non-Europeans, or by other Europeans. Slaves of European origin were present in ancient Rome and the Ottoman Empire. On the European continent under feudalism. Ohio State University history Professor Robert Davis describes the White Slave Trade as minimized by most modern historians in his book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, 1500-1800. Davis estimates that 1 million to 1.25 million Europeans were enslaved in North Africa, from the beginning of the 16th century to the middle of the 18th, by slave traders from Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli alone (these numbers do not include the European people who were enslaved by Morocco and by other raiders and traders of the Mediterranean Sea coast) and roughly 700 Americans were held captive in this region as slaves between 1785 and 1815. Research all of Slavery and you will find that just about every race has served time as slaves. To one nation or an other. Wake Up People.... Black Lives matters is attacking the one county and Nation that has ended slavery of all races. The Jews may have suffered the most of all under slavery and the task masters whip. Jews most white skinned people were under Egyptian slavery for 430 years. Then again under Hitler and the Nazi party called the great holocaust. Jews were beaten to death; 30,000 Jewish men were taken to concentration camps; and 1,668 synagogues ransacked with 267 set on fire. By 1941 and that is not counting the women who were, raped, sold as prostitutes or out right killed if their looks were not pleasing enough. By 1945 Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews, around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population. The murders were carried out in programs and mass shootings; by a policy of extermination through work in concentration camps. Jews were worked until they could no longer produce then systematically shot. Many were burnt alive in the crematoriums.

    People wake up Slavery is alive!, and still with us today. Global Slavery Index (GSI), there are an estimated 40.3 million slaves in the world today. This modern day slavery is in many instances not all too different from that in medieval times, as people are still being owned as property by others in some countries around the world. Today around 106,000 black Africans are estimated to be enslaved in Algeria. Migrant women, but also children (both male and female), risk being forced into sexual slavery. Men perform unskilled labor. Those who avoid slavery are also subjected to virulent Arab racism and death. Black lives matters is a world organization not an American organization. Why aren't they protesting in Algeria. The answer is simple. They would be shot down by the Algerian army in a matter of minutes. Their only reason in the United States is to create a race war and divided the American people destroying our economy and to destroy " YOUR" country ( the greatest nation in the world). Lady's and gentlemen. Slavery is an issue FOR all people and a PLIGHT to all mankind. We as Americans must come together as one people ! We are not Black, White, Yellow, Brown or even sky blue pink. We are Americans and we must act as Americans first and not be divided. For United we Stand, Divided we Fall. Unless we put a stop to this RACISM. Forgive and put our difference aside and stand as one people. We will soon all be slaves under a New Communistic One World Order ! Ask yourselves, Is that what you really want? I am not a Color. I am a human-being and proud to be a national Born American.

    It might be worth your effort to do a deep background search and show a direct linage from them to you. Most Tribes/clans Nations now keep accurate records, thats why in the Cherokee Nation, for you to be classified as a member you must either be a direct descendant (ie your mother or father or grandparents) or be able to trace your linage back to the Dawes Roll. That is what was used in the Trail of Tears. If you cant then you are not a member no matter what your family may claim. And no the Cherokee Nation does not accept dna tests as proof. Now you see why I get so angry when I have a keyboard commando claim to be Native American and then refuse to name what Clan or nation they are claiming to be from. You have done well in starting your linage check, just a little bit more and then you can have something you can show the 1st nation and hopefully be able to join them. I wish you luck.

    Christ said in Matthew 5:17 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." meaning that you STILL have to obey the laws of the old testament. Nice try though

    After all the things they do that are against humanity and the people at actually choose to give this company money. turning on to this to make them seem better than they really are. they really need to reevaluate themselves before they try to appease political motions.

    The Whole Human Race stands comdemned by Satan - and ALL are headed towards destruction.

    You can not save your self.

    But Jesus can, thanks be to God !

    REPENT from Sin, turn towards Hesus and LIVE !

    All creatures made of fallen flesh will die.

    Are you Ready ?

    Ask Jesus into your heart. Ask Jesus into your mind. Ask Christ Jesus to please save your soul, to be the Lord of your life, to guide you, to help you, to bless you, to save you now and for all eternity...

    I ask you again my dear brothers and sisters:
    Are you Ready to meet the Lord ?

    I've never owned a slave. My parent's never owned a slave. My grandparents never owned a slave. My great grandparents never owned a slave. No one in my family tree that I know of ever owned a slave. At 66 years old I've had friends of all different colors and religions. Different beliefs and ways of life. You want to know how to tell who are the people who really are the racist? All you have to do is look at the ones calling everyone else racist. There's your racist people. It's amazing that someone can call you racist simply because of the color of your skin, while they are proving how racist they are against you, simply because of the color of your skin. There's your racists. Plain and simple.

    I see some seriously racist comments on here. No I don’t think that all white people should repent for racism, that to me is absolutely ridiculous and I’m black! But I do believe that if you are silent on issues of racism and inequality then you are complicit and a huge part of the problem that we still have going on after all of these decades.

    The sin is not slavery per se it is the pursuit of cheap labor. Every culture regardless of race have always imported other "lessor" peoples to work.

    Repentance is healthy. Better too much than too little.

    Ham was not pick for the “ chosen” line in the Old Testament . The fact that only one line was picked is a preference to one race and is also the cradle of racist ideology . One special race to receive the grace of god and guide the lesser races. Certainly re imagining what the Bible says with clever Apologetics is in order . Better yet we should not defend Bronze Age perceptions and adapt them in today’s world . We should repent from ancient ideology because we know better

    Blacks are more racist than whites. And they refuse to accept responsibility for the sins their communities commit.

    Your all just a bunch of trouble makers stuck in the spirit of gainsaying. As you know it will get anybody nowhere. Don't any of you read the books of corinthians. Even mexican lives matter along with whites or whoever seems to be having a bad time. I don't see anyone worried about it when we're all having a good time do you...?
