The latest thing that’s ‘all the rage’ is the dust-up over the fast food chain Chic-fil-A. It seems the company president, in an interview, professed to follow some Biblical tenets regarding homosexuality, with respect to his feelings regarding gay marriage. (A Secret – he didn’t like it.)
Of course, this should be of no surprise to anyone. It has been well-established that he has outed himself as a Christian, and that as such believes such things. He has his company closed on Sunday, for religious reasons. It’s been this way for years. And reportedly his company complies with all Federal and State Laws with regard to employment and customer service. You may buy chicken there or even work there if you disagree with the company president!
The Left and anti-Christian folks have had a cow regarding his opinion, and have not only threatened a buycott of Chil-fil-A, but violence has been threatened.
Why does the Left always seem to threaten violence? I thought they were all First Amendment and such? Oh, I get it, as long as it’s something with which they agree, then they like the First Amendment. The company Chik-fil-A shouldn’t have such a vile opinion.
Of course, the company doesn’t have the opinion, just the CEO.
I did link to Tam’s buycott suggestion the other day. I’m not against buycotts, it’s a legitimate way to express one’s feelings. Don’t buy XXX’s product or service. Show your disagreement with your feet, not with violence.
If you don’t want to support Chik-fil-A, or Tactical Firearms of Katy Texas, or the LGBT movement, these are your choices. Or not. This is still a free country. Last time I checked.
I wonder if the people protesting Chik-fil-A also protest Muslim-owned businesses, because the Koran states homosexuals should be killed? Probably not – protesting Muslim-owned businesses is politically-incorrect.
And I’m certain all those new customers going to Chik-fil-A (lines ’round the block) are all hate-filled cretins who deserve some horrible death.
NO, they might just be supporting that First Amendment right of the company president. They may even disagree with him.
THIS is what The United States is supposed to embody.
