Since when did “traditional” marriage become anti-gay anything? Marriage will always be one man and one woman. Anything different isn’t marriage is it? You can call it a “civil union” or whatever else you want, but since the history of man, marriage has and always will be what God intended – a way for man and woman to join in matrimony.
It’s amazing how a PRIVATE company that follows biblical principles can get this kind of backlash over an innocent donation. President Dan Cathy posted a video response on Chick-Fil-A’s Facebook page. His message was “Chick-fil-A serves all people and values all people.” Chick Fil-A has said numerous times that its donation did not serve as a political endorsement. Though gay activists and the leftist media won’t let this one die…
A private company can DONATE wherever it wants. That being said, at FAITHBASEDINVESTOR.COM, we keep a close watch on where PUBLIC company’s donate, and what types of products and services they provide. We look for companies that support “traditional” marriage and give millions of dollars to Christian organizations and ministries that uphold biblical values. These are the types of investments we seek as faith-based investors.
Wishing Chick-Fil-A were publicly traded as they’d be a STRONG buy. Just hearing about this controversy is making me hungry for a chicken sandwich. Mmmm mmm mmm. How about you? Go show Chick Fil-A some love and “Eat Mor Chickn!”
Many people may made a commitment to show better stewardship in 2011. This may include your personal lifestyle in an effort to live and eat better or it may also include your finances. Many are trying to “go green”. Conserving what God created is always a good idea. How can you make a bigger impact with your investments to compliment your moral and social preferences?
You’ve probably heard the phrase, “do well by doing right.” In the financial arena, it is often written or spoken in reference to impact investing – also known as socially responsible investing. At Faith-Based Investor, we believe in social and moral responsible investing. See the difference.
Egyptians took to the streets in Cairo and other major cities Friday, facing riot squads and armored personnel carriers as they demanded political reforms and an end to the 30-year rule of the country’s president, Hosni Mubarak.
The Mubarak government shut down the nation’s internet providers and mobile phone network and imposed a nationwide nightly curfew within a 36-hour period Thursday and Friday. In response, a huge crowd surrounded the Cairo headquarters of Mubarak’s National Democratic Party (which was set on fire) and the nation’s key radio and television headquarters. Great Britain’s Telegraph reported that 870 in the crowd suffered injuries, with some protestors being shot.
How did the markets interpret the turmoil? The reaction was as expected: stocks dived, oil and gold prices immediately climbed and there was renewed interest in the dollar and U.S. government bonds.
Gold gained $22.30 (1.69%) on the COMEX, while oil rose $3.70 (4.32%) on the NYMEX. At the end of the U.S. trading day, gold settled at $1,340.70 per ounce and oil had topped $89 per barrel ($89.34). The U.S. Dollar Index moved north 0.55% on the day.
The Dow, NASDAQ and S&P 500 all tumbled Friday, though the descent also reflected disappointment over earnings reports from Ford and Amazon. On the day, the Dow fell 166.13, the S&P slipped 23.20 and the NASDAQ dropped 68.39.
