Yep, another Chick-fil-A post, fueled by an article I read this morning. Some people should read their own words. A Mississippi Republican Rep., Alan Nunnelee, sent a letter to Dan Cathy to “show support for the manner in which you have defended your values and reputation in the face of unfair and malicious criticism”. H’m. "unfair" - that’s funny right there. He opens his mouth further and states “The criticism they have received has been appalling, elected officials that are now threatening to block new Chick-fil-A restaurants in their cities are acting in a manner that is un-American.” Excuse me?... "un-American"... think about that please.
Okay, let me say that of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, no matter how ignorant or hateful it is, but that is NOT what the Chick-fil-A controversy is about. If that were the case, then people would starve, be unclothed, not own vehicles, etc., for protesting people’s opinions – on both sides. Dan Cathy and all the others like him who deny people THEIR natural born rights, in my opinion, are racist and teaching their children to hate. And that is just sad.
Did you know that Dan Cathy and his company promote hate AND pays for it to continue? Why on earth would it be “un-American” to not want a hate promoting company in your city? Is that not “un-American” in itself? Here’s a quote from Wayne Self’s article post regarding the punishable crimes (yes, punishable!) just for being gay, let alone same sex marriage:
“Two organizations that work very hard to maintain this status quo and roll back any protections that we may have are the Family Research Council and the Marriage & Family Foundation. For example, the Family Research council leadership has officially stated that same-gender-loving behavior should be criminalized in this country. They draw their pay, in part, from the donations of companies like Chick-Fil-A. Both groups have also done “missionary” work abroad that served to strengthen and promote criminalization of same-sex relations. - Chick-Fil-A has given roughly $5M to these organizations to support their work. - Chick-Fil-A’s money comes from the profits they make when you purchase their products.”
This saddens and angers me. No matter how hard I practice.
People, this is not a "biblical" debate. We're talking about Human Rights. Rights that were given to each and every one of us the moment we were conceived and born into this life. NOBODY has the right to take that away. This simply needs to stop.
On the flip side of this, I hope everyone who dines at Chick-fil-hate enjoys their cola drinks. Coke products are the only beverages served. Coca Cola supports Human Rights.
