Chick-Fil-A and the Anti-Gay Opinion
Long after Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy's initial comments to a religious publication touched off the clash between straights and gay rights activists, it is still here. This is lame. Stupid. Yet, the squeeky wheel gets the worm, in this case, more much ado about nothing to most people.
The CEO said, "guilty as charged" for openly supporting groups that advocate for "the biblical definition of a family unit." He later added that the United States is "inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage."
First, it is his opinion. Second, he has a right to voice it. Third, it has nothing to do with food. Fourth, he made no hate speech nor anti-gay and only alluded that his position does not support same sex marriages. Hey, Obama did too, for years. Just because he is a CEO of a fast food chain makes him a target of ranting, silly, gay people asking people to boycott the chain. As if that is going to be effective to those who like the chain to replenish their stomachs. It isn't. Not one iota. If you like their food, you will go there, regardless of what the CEO states.
The thing that bothers many is that it is okay for gays to voice their opinions and act openly, which sometimes IS disgusting, but it is NOT okay for those who do not accept them to do the same without a petulant reaction. It is always the radical elements of the gay community that gives the group as a whole, a bad name. Once again, proven with Chick-Fil-A.
