OK, I can’t deal with it anymore.I planned to stay out of the whole Chick-fil-A
controversy but the more I read about the insipidly moronic statements from
government officials, well…it’s much too ludicrous for me to stay silent.
We all pretty much know what Chick-fil-A’s COO, Dan Cathy,
stated in a July 16th article in The Baptist Press.He affirmed that his company was guided by
Judeo-Christian values, including his support of traditional marriage between a
man and a woman. He stated his opinion. But because his opinion is not
politically correct, he inadvertently offended
gay rights activists.Therefore they
decided he should be castigated, hung in effigy, boiled in oil, flayed alive,
his business ruined as well as b--- slapped!So there!
Surprise, surprise, the LGBT community exploded with their
typical histrionic rage; a favorite tool used by this group to vilify,
intimidate and silence any hint of disagreement with their lifestyle.Whaaaaaaah, wha..whaaa, Boo-hoo-hoo, WHAAAAAH!!!!*sniff-sniff*sniff* Oh dear, Mr. Cathy offendedthem!What a gross
error on his part, because we are ALL well versed in what happens when this
here they go again.Cover your ears...WHAAAAAH!
Funny thing is...this isn’t that much of an
exaggeration.Sad, isn’t it?
Let’s think about this.Do you remember as a little kid, being naughty and doing something your
Mom or Dad expressly told you not to do?What was one of the ways you acted when you were caught? After all, you knew good and well you deliberately
disobeyed, and you were going to suffer the consequences.
However, like every other human being, you didn’t like being
told what you could or couldn’t do. You thought you were perfectly capable of
deciding matters for yourself.So, out
of rebellion you disobeyed because you didn’t feel your parents had the right
or authority to be your boss. After all, who were they to order you around?
So you’re caught.One
trick in your arsenal was loudly yelling something like, “Well, YOU get to do
it but I don’t and that’s not fair!You’re just being hateful and mean!You don’t love me!If you loved
me you’d let me do that!”Whaaaaaah!What is this
When we are in rebellion against anything and are called on
it, we tend to project our bad behavior and attitude onto the person holding us
accountable.It’s a psychological
defense mechanism we use to excuse our actions and escape the possible
repercussions. And it’s lame.Lame, lame, lame. It makes us look foolish and childish, not to
mention being transparently obvious to other people.
The Bible makes it VERY clear that God views homosexuality
as an abomination.It goes against what
He created and designed, and it disgusts Him to no end.By the way, the gentle Jesus of the New
Testament IS the thundering God of the Old Testament, therefore Jesus DID condemn
homosexuality. Nice try though.
This lifestyle has been rammed down the throats of average
Americans for years.‘You WILL accept us!
You will NOT tell us we’re wrong.We’re
gay and here to stay, so get used to it!And if you DON’T accept us and our morality, we will call you haters or
homophobes or intolerant, and we’ll yell it at the top of our lungs until you
capitulate and give in to our demands!’
Wow.That’s quite a
stance to take, isn’t it?Sounds like
they are projecting onto us the very thing they accuse us of; being intolerant,
heterophobic. Why in the world do they have such a militant attitude filled
with exaggerated outrage?Hmmm. Why does
anyone use projection?
Ah yes, I remember.It’s because they are WRONG and they know
it.They are acting out against
nature, society, moral norms and God Himself.They know deep in their soul the reason for their anger has nothing to
do with a society that doesn’t automatically accept their behavior with open
arms.No.The root of the matter is that they are in
rebellion against Almighty God and His rules because none of us wants to be
told what we can and cannot do.
ALL of us were born with a sinful nature. Learning to resist
acting on our impulses is a part of growing up.We learn that we cannot take Sally’s candy on the playground because she
will pitch a fit and we’ll get in trouble with the teacher, a/k/a the authority
Another discovery we make is that, if we steal Sally’s candy,
Sally just might punch our lights out.We
may very well suffer severe consequences for our decision to act on the impulse
to steal and it would be our own fault.
Chick-fil-A.The Mayor of Boston, Tom
Morino stated, “Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston.You can’t have a business in the city of
Boston that discriminates against a population.Same-sex marriage, same-sex couples—that’s the civil rights fight of our
time.(What a slap toblack folks!)To have those discriminatory policies from
the top down is just something that we’re not open to.We want responsible business.”
Uh, Mayor Morino, Chick-fil-A doesn’t ‘discriminate’ against
gays.They hire gays.Having an opinion that is not politically
correct is not ‘discrimination.’ It’s
his OPINION!By definition, opinions
cannot be wrong.They are just that—an
opinion.And he is entitled to his.
If Chick-fil-A’s hiring policies were to exclude gays from
working in their stores, then yes, that would be discriminatory.Before you accuse or castigate others, be
sure to at least know what you’re talking about.Look those big words up and make sure you
understand the definition of what is spewing out of your mouth. Besides, Mr. Mayor…who asked you??
And then we have Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel weighing in on
the issue, only he doesn’t know what an ironic statement he made!He said, “Chick-fil-A’s values are not
Hahahahahahaahahaha!!!Really Mr. Mayor?
You’re actually announcing to the world that the traditional
values that form the nuclear family, an ancient structure of relationships that
has been observed since the beginning of human civilization, doesn’t exist in
Chicago?Are the citizens living there
aware of this?
You must be referring to the town that’s famous for violent,
thieving, murdering mobsters.That
Chicago, right?The city who groomed
that socialist spawn of satan currently residing in the White House; the most
monumental, egregious mistake this country has ever elected to be
President?The Marxist- in-chief??Nah!You don’t say.
Do you realize how imbecilic your statement was? Probably not. You were too busy regurgitating
politically correct verbal diarrhea to notice you insulted your own city.What an irrational, nonsensical thing to say
about the people you supposedly serve. Come back, Mr. Mayor—come back to us from the
land of political correctness.
Hey you folks in Chicago—you may want to ask your Mayor why
he doesn’t think any of you are honest, hardworking, equitable, kind, decent,
ethical or principled because THOSE are the values of Mr. Cathy and his
I’ve got good news for all the hysterical gays as well as
Mayors Emanuel and Morino:You’ve taken
a simple statement of opinion, overplayed your ‘outrage’ tool, blown one man’s
opinion so far out of proportion that you’ve exposed yourselves to be the out
of touch jackasses you are!
Oh yes, the good news…The good news is that despite your
vitriolic, childish tantrum meant to punish and shame traditional American
values, Chick-fil-A will probably not bother you again.However, I must inform you that your refusal
to allow this company into your community will absolutely NOT injure them in
any way, shape or form.
Mr. Cathy publically stood up for Biblical principles and
you can bet your tiaras and tutus that Almighty God is mighty proud of that
family and business. They will prosper just fine without being in your
cities.Besides, you have NO idea how
awesome their food is, so that leaves more for the rest of us!
