I can’t take anymore of this Chick-Fil-A business, I really can’t. SO! If you read my facebook posts, you’ll know how I stand on this issue, and if you don’t, then I’ll put them here as bullet points.
1) Yes, I’m a gay man. And I still like the company, because I believe in the liberty and freedom to have your own ideas.
2) Very SLIPPERY slope to take when you decide people should be silenced for your opinions. AND! The organizations you support.
3) Today, its them, tomorrow it could be you and me.
4) Not interested in reading stories about people being beat up because they were gay and Chick-Fil-A is responsible. Its a bullying tactic…the same ones we are trying to combat. Makes us a bunch of hypocrites. That company has in NO WAY endorsed a physical maiming or death.
5) I see this as a fight against their religious beliefs, for which is a monumental disaster for anyone who attempts to win this. Do I agree? No. Do I allow? Absolutely.
6) Do not assume for a moment that taking down this company sends a message. It ruins the livelihoods of thousands of people who could care less about the CEO’s opinions.
7) Its a CHICKEN SANDWICH. Its not a political PERSON who has the right to vote upon the actual laws that decide whether or not gay people have rights. And I promise you, if you try and tell me they spend their money on organizations that support those persons, I’ll shoot you down with a quick, “Referendums decide the rule of the majority, not sandwiches.”
8) Going to this restaurant on 1 Aug and ordering a water is a stupid, trite, and unimpressive way to make your point. You’re showing your ass. Progressive is starting to look more like AGGRESSIVE> I.E. Think like we do, or we’ll destroy you.
9) The last point I want to make? So very VERY few, not nearly a one who has decided to cause a stink over this whole issue has ever even eaten there, which again goes back to my biggest point….
10) Its Chick-Fil-A today…..and could EASILY be you tomorrow.
Oh! And I was told, “Enough with the Fox blah blah blah, get back to your knitting.”
Well, knitting for 16 hours a day can tend to leave you to your thoughts. And just because someone has an opposition to the trendy norm doesn’t mean it came from a media source. It comes from common sense. And that the laws of free expression and religion should be held to the test even when you DON’T believe in them. Silencing anyone leads to a perpetual dismissal of this our wonderful Constitution.
