Celebrities can mock and ridicule Jesus Christ, Christians, and the Bible, and it’s called freedom of speech or comedy. Christians can voice a biblical opinion, and it’s called “hate speech.” Now, Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy is in trouble with pro-homosexual bloggers, celebrities and organizations who are calling on customers to boycott this “discriminatory” company for Cathy’s statements on marriage.
The mayor of Boston has gotten in on the controversy. “The Boston Herald has reported that Mayor Tom Menino is threatening to make obtaining the necessary licenses for a family business to operate ‘very difficult’ — not because the business’s products are controversial or hazardous, but because the privately-held company believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman.” (Source)
Here were Dan Cathy’s inflammatory comments:
“We’re 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.’ And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.”
A president of such a big company should not be making public and vocal stances on such controversial political issues, they say. He should just keep his opinions to himself . . . unless of course he comes out in favor of something liberal like same-sex marriage or socialized medicine. Then, he would be applauded by liberals, and the media would defend him from all those judgmental right-wing extremists.
But who are these outraged people seeking revenge from Mr. Cathy? Are they the same people that strut down main street in their gay pride parades, flaunting their carnal lifestyles for all to see with their painted-on clothes? Are they the same people who would throw blood on people, church congregations, pastors and pretty much anybody who “hurt” their feelings?
Are they the same group of people that lobbies for “homosexual education” in government schools where elementary students are taught about all manners of sexual debauchery? The same people who want to brainwash young kids in school into believing that homosexuality is perfectly healthy, and that it’s completely normal to have two dads or two moms?
The same people that want “gay” pornographic literature required reading for high school students? And are these the same people that talk a lot about peace, love, and tolerance?
What’s wrong with this picture? You have a homosexual lobby that wants to criminalize the act of making statements that hurt the feelings of homosexuals, but these same homosexuals, in the name of “free speech,” can go around terrorizing Christians for their statements and beliefs.
While the left “exposed” the restaurant chain owner as a gay-bashing homophobe, it also “exposed” him as a donor to “anti-gay” organizations like Focus on the Family. It seems that a business owner is not allowed to speak honestly about his beliefs; nor is he allowed to give his money to organizations that promote the concept of a family unit headed by a husband and wife. That’s bigoted, extreme, and intolerant. But it’s OK to use our tax dollars to promote the homosexual lifestyle. Something’s wrong with this picture.
