I think I’ll be eating mor chikin

Recently Dan Cathy, CEO of the Chick-fil-A restaurant, stated his belief in the “biblical definition of the family unit” in an interview with the Baptist Press.

Liberals, desperate to distract voters from Dear Leader’s dwindling hopes of re-election, and realizing that the post-Aurora-massacre push to ban guns was failing, seized on the opportunity to attack Chick-fil-A for daring to espouse an opinion that runs counter to current politically-correct groupthink. Various liberal mayors of large cities like Boston and Chicago are threatening to block any attempt by Chick-Fil-A to build restaurants in their cities. I think that’s odd, given that Chick-fil-A has more than 1600 restaurants employing tens of thousands of people. In dying urban centers where joblessness is endemic, I would think that mayors would be anxious to see new businesses open up, not trying to find ways to shut them down.

Gay “rights” are not interesting to me. Western civilization has come a long way in a very brief time. Nowadays it’s relatively rare for gay people to be persecuted or murdered for their beliefs, unlike in the preceding centuries (and unlike in South America, Africa, and Asia where they are still traditionally persecuted today). I think they have very little to complain about in this society. In fact, governmental protections have given gay people significant advantages in this society, by identifying them as a protected class deserving of special consideration and protection from “hate crimes” and “hate speech.” Now gay people are using their special status to mobilize liberal mobs to  persecute people who dare to disagree with them. No longer the target of societal abuse and oppression, gay people and their supporters now wish to wield their newfound power to oppress others. They label people who disagree with them as “haters,” even as they themselves spew hate.

I will not acquiesce to mob rule, and I hope that Chick-fil-A does not either.

Chick-fil-A’s long-running advertising campaign features cows holding poorly-lettered, misspelled signs which say “Eat mor chikin.” I think I’ll be doing just that.
