1. God is not the creator of evil and suffering.

2. Though suffering isn't good, God can use it to accomplish good. (Rom 8:28, Gen 50:20)

3. The day is coming when suffering will cease and God will judge evil. (2 Pet 3:9)

4. Our suffering will pale in comparison to what God has in store for his followers. (2 Cor 4:17, Rom 8:18)

5. We decide whether to turn bitter or turn to God for peace and courage.

"I ask you to join me in speaking out on Wednesday, August 1 "Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day. No one is being asked to make signs, speeches, or openly demonstrate. The goal is simple."

// The National Eat at Chick-fil-A Day on July 25 is in response to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activists urging people to boycott Chick-fil-A after Dan Cathy responded to the Biblical Recorder's question about the company's support for the traditional family saying, "Well, guilty as charged."

"We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that."

"We intend to stay the course," Cathy said. "We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles." //

• Brian Brown (7/21/2012, president of National Organization for Marriage) National Eat at Chick-Fil-A Day on Wednesday!

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Thanks to your recent efforts at and, we've shown the cultural elite, the gay millionaires who fund anti-marriage initiatives, and the biased media that the defenders of marriage are willing to put our money where our mouth is.

Well, this Wednesday, we have a chance to do it again—and this time even more literally—by coming out in support of National Eat at Chick-fil-A Day.

Imagine if folks all across the country united together in support of heroes like Dan and Truett Cathy that stand for strengthening marriage and family!

Imagine the potential impact of the message that companies favoring the radical redefinition of marriage risk fallout with their customers—combined with the message that heroes who stand for marriage and family cannot be silenced!

Imagine how clearly that message would be heard across the nation if Chick-fil-A reported record sales this Wednesday!

Well, let's not just imagine it—let's make it happen.

On his radio show this week, Mike Huckabee called on his listeners to support the principled stand of the Cathy family by making this coming Wednesday (July 25th) "National Eat at Chick-fil-A Day."

Please join me this Wednesday in supporting this courageous company, while at the same time sending a powerful message of support to every individual and every company with the courage to stand for marriage.

Visit your local Chick-fil-A restaurant for lunch or dinner on Wednesday. Better yet— stop and tell the manager that you're there to honor and respect the integrity, faith and courage of Dan Cathy and the Cathy family.

Show your support! Eat Mor Chikin! (7/23/2012) National Same Sex Kiss Day Planned to Protest Chick-fil-A's Anti-Gay Stance.  They have a "National Same Sex Kiss Day at Chick Fil A" Facebook page here, the date is Friday August 3rd at 8pm Eastern.
