Chick-Fil-A and Gay Marriage

Posted by madjillmom on July 25, 2012

I was listening to Glenn Beck the other day about Chick-Fil-A and the brouhaha over their support of traditional marriage.  Beck was asking why support for traditional marriage is construed as hatred of gays and discrimination of gays. I think people are just taking a page out of Obama’s book. Obama runs around every day telling us that Republicans are against regulations.  What Republicans want is common sense and necessary regulations that don’t strangle business and enterprise.  Republicans don’t want no regulations. Obama always uses this type of all or nothing argument.

Now, Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel and the mayor of Boston tell  us that Chick-Fil-A is not welcome because they are for traditional marriage.  These cities will turn away a business and good food to gin up this argument that support of traditional marriage is gay hatred.  This type of boycott is really stupid. I guess the Catholic Church and all Mosques are not welcome in Chicago and Boston.

So now it is ok to discriminate against corporations and individuals if they don’t tow the party line. You are not allow to think your way, you must think my way.  We don’t like your kind around here.  You support traditional marriage.

I love Chick-Fil-A.  I have never been asked by their employees if I am gay or if I am a supporter of gay marriage. They have their views and they do not discriminate in their service. Being against gay marriage doesn’t mean you hate gay people.

I will bet that the Justice Department will soon file suit against a Christian Chick-Fil-A franchisee for not hiring a young gay person or a person in a gay marriage.
