Apologetics to the Glory of God

“Biblical Marriage,” Chick-Fil-A, and Polyphobes

Biblical marriage is between one man and one woman. Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy recently affirmed that statement. As a Christian. In a Baptist publication.

Those who support the homosexual agenda are outraged. Apparently they were unaware that a conservative Christian like Dan Cathy would take that sort of stance. Ignorance is bliss, and in this case it comes with waffle fries. But no more. Even the Aurora shootings were not enough to stop people from whining about “homophobia” and boycotting Chick-Fil-A. Enough on that topic.

What I am more concerned about is the hateful display of polyphobia that those who approve of homosexuality have exhibited during this ordeal. Homosexuals and those approving of their sin have been mocking Cathy’s statements about biblical marriage by raising the alleged fact that polygamy is an example of biblical marriage.

Of course, there is polygamy in the Bible. There is also homosexuality in the Bible. No one is denying that. Both practices are described by the Bible. But neither of these practices is prescribed by the Bible. In fact they are condemned by it.

That is not my main point though. There is a bigger problem here. Implicit in the mockery concerning polygamy is the assumption that there is something wrong or abnormal with polygamy. Perhaps it is even sinful! Mind you, those approving of homosexuality don’t stop with mere polyphobia. They have the audacity to imply that rape, bestiality, and pedophilia are wrong as well!

Now I am sure that on the subject of homosexuality these folks would be the first to say that when two people are really in love they should have the right to express that love even in marriage. But by that logic they are being really hateful when they make such snide remarks about poor polygamists and others who do not fit into their narrow and close-minded categories.
