City Cancels Event Over Chick-Fil-A’s “Christian Beliefs”

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.

  1. The Nanaimo incident happened in May 2014. As a prophetic watchman in Canada I must inform you that WE WON THE CASE FOR THIS INJUSTICE! .Thousands of Christians Canada-wide banned together via the SunNews Network’s courageous journalist-lawyer-Jew named Ezra Levant! The mayor and the 7 councillors who voted against that telecast ending up apologizing big time and reversed the new law they had created that no Christian event could ever take place in any public building! We are broken hearted that Sun News Network was disbanded later on due to top corporate “restructuring”. Just heard that Ezra Levant is going to start up a Canadian “Glenn Beck” subscription based site.

  2. Don’t foolish fellow human beings realize that those of them who hold positions in high places whether it be on a local level or in washington in all forms of what helps govern us people, will be held accountable even greater than the average citizen in our land? This statement goes for all Pastors, Preachers , and other priesthood members callings too. Because they will not give credit and thanks and appreciation for such office holdings to God their and our Creator, and refuse to obey his teachings and laws of righteous living, they will be harshly judged on that great and terrible day of our Lord Jesus return. One way out, humble yourselves to our Lord Jesus, ask for forgiveness, repent of your wicked ways, go then and sin no more, being clean, refreshed, new again to start over, doing your will in a much better way. There is yet time, but not for long, don’t tarry, make positive changes now, before Jesus returns. We see the signs everywhere, we must hold strong in our faith, at all costs, even our lives, if so called to do. Trust, help all of us hear you Lord , more clearly and precisely, no time for delay. There has been in our past and will continue to be until his coming again for us, strong temptations of all kinds, will we pass the tests that come our way, I sure pray we all can and will. The Lord desires to have many saved in Heaven Forever with him, no one left behind, or worse, in that furnace place, no one likes to talk about. Hell is Real, Heaven is Real, choose, do it now.
