Quick! It’s a national crisis! Call the mayor! Call the media! Get the army! Call up the National Guard!!!
Because a crazy mob is beating up people as they leave the Wisconsin State Fair? No.
Because men with bats are threatening citizens who are simply trying to vote? No.
Because the federal government is giving guns to drug dealers and murderers? No.
Because a private citizen expressed an opinion.
Think about that for a minute. A private citizen expressed an opinion. He exercised his right to free speech, so he must be stopped. The mayor of Chicago is apparently fine with gangs shooting up the city as long as they stay away from the kids, but Chick-Fil-A is not welcome! Why? Because the CEO of Chick-Fil-A is a Christian who actually believes in traditional marriage. What a scandal! By the way, President Obama held the same opinion until he needed money from the gay community a few months ago, so he changed his opinion, but you probably didn’t want to know that. Frankly, I don’t care what you think about traditional marriage. This kind of behavior from a government official ought to scare the daylights out of all of us.
I remember, years ago, a controversy about the KKK marching in downtown Cincinnati. On more than one occasion, I heard people say, “I may not agree with what they say, but I’ll defend to the death their right to say it.” I don’t hear people saying that today.
Instead and incredibly, I’m hearing people (including other Christians) criticizing the Chik-Fil-A supporters for – what exactly? They went out to lunch to show their support for a restaurant that is under attack by the government and the media because its CEO expressed an opinion. How dare they.
Look out! He’s got a chicken sandwich! Stay away from the kids!!!
