We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

They don't make tons of dough. It's not a pizza place, they sell chicken. You've been going to the wrong place.
It starts with one.
If he was 'putting his money where his faith is,' he would be giving all his money to the poor, per the Bible.
not sure if your serious
Are there still people crying about where another person spends their money?
Seriously now, find a better argument than "I don't like where that private citizen spends their money!" LOL at that attempt, what a reach.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
First chapter of jusmadeitup?
There may be no easier assertion to defend in the entire Bible.
Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." (Matt. 19:23-24; Luke 18:24-25)
Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." (Matt. 19:21; Luke 18:22)
Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. (Luke 12:33)
Want to add the context of who he was speaking to or why, in those examples?
1 Timothy 5:8
"But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."
The context proves my point ENTIRELY:
17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother. 20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth. 21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! 24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
1. Rich man asks Jesus what he can do to get into Heaven
2. Jesus says to sell everything he has and give it to the poor.
3. Rich man is sad.
4. Jesus says that it's, like, really hard for a rich man to get into heaven.
5. Disciples are like, "Jesus are you serious right now?"
6. Jesus doubles down.
You're right. The Bible is full of unforgivable contradictions.
P.S. Providing for one's family is somewhat different from amassing millions and millions of dollars and providing them an extreme level of luxury.

Sheesh another thread where the Bible is wielded as clumsily as possible. Nuke this thread.
He didn't speak out, he was asked a question and gave his honest opinion.
Then Jesus was crucified, and we look to Romans 10:9. If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
And that truth is so simple, many cannot grasp it.
So, Mr. Cathy believed that at a young age, ran his company in a way that never strayed from biblical principles, and The Lord blessed Mr. Cathy and his company.
The Bible is a perfect document. If you seek confusion and contradition, you will find it. However, if you seek the truth, it is also there.
If you read my other posts in the topic you would have seen my condemnation of Mayor Mumbles.
However, do not play the poor poor pitiful right wing card. If people were being honest they would see the ridiculousness of the claim. That won't happen though, too many if you are fast to point out all that is wrong with us liberals (which is ignorant used as a derogatory dart) but outright refuse to see why many of us have become so angry at the extreme right.
Save me the sob story, Major. The discrimination that comes under the guise of free speech is disgusting.
People want to complain because "liberals" are hypocritical. Here is a perfect example of a Christian mocking someone else's beliefs. It's gone on throughout this thread but is only pointed out when a liberal locks someone.
You don't even follow what you claim is The Word.
Its been said multiple times that Dan Cathy, as an American, is free to have his beliefs and to even express those beliefs. He is not, sadly, just obeying the Word. He is financially supporting nonprofits that would gladly try to violate the Constitution. Again, its his right to believe and financially support who he wishes. It is MY right not to fund organizations which would violate the rights which have been fought for by people like my brother and your son. You may be at peace with what Dan Cathy does, but it takes a really disturbing mindset to mock someone else when they exercise the rights you're so intent on protecting when the message is something you agree with.
If it were going to an extreme liberal organization hoping to remove "one nation under god" you would be complaining. How is it wrong to refuse patronizing one company who donates to one dangerous organization but stupid for another?
That's what we call hypocrisy.
I'm free to do what I want as long as you agree with it, but it becomes foolish if you disagree. Let me educate you, sir, our Constitution doesn't protect only that which you agree with.
Apparently the Mayor of Boston is yet another stupid f'n yankee. Seems to be far too many of those. I hope Chik Fil A moves in and builds the worlds largest Chik Fil A as close as possible to city hall and the DA Mayor's office.
Perfect response to the mayor of Boston.
Ugh, I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
Again, I never said I agree with Mumbles. In fact, and you know this because we were friends at one point, I am completely opposed to the use of religion (be it for or against) in any political context. The two should stay completely separate, period.
Seems it is inevtiable that religion and politics cross. I'm definitely not saying either side is the culprit, but it seems it will continue to be an issue in about all facets of life. I don't have the answers. Not even sure of the questions most times. It think it tends to be a very personal issue. I hear many viewpoints from Christians that I completely oppose, and many I agree with. Not denominational either. I'm Baptist and so is that Phelps guy, and there is nothing about him or his beliefs that I am in agreement with. Tough issues. No easy answers.
I have no idea what you are talking about and to be honest neither do you. I was laughing when I responded , you like women that OK but don't try to push your sexual preference on me. I do not agree with the gay life style.
