I find the recent news regarding Chik-fil-A disturbing. To catch
you up in case you are not familiar with what’s going on: the president of the company, Dan Cathy, basically stated that he does not support gay marriage. He claims they are a family owned business and they support family defined as stated in the bible. There are 1,608 restaurants in the chain and they are all closed on Sunday’s which is a day of rest for those practicing the Christian faith. The mayor in Boston sent a letter to Cathy and told him to cancel any plans he has to expand the chain in the city.
This isn’t about gay marriage at all, what I find disheartening about this is that Dan Cathy is being singled out and bullied for expressing his
opinion. This is America, we should have the right to “think” or“say” whatever we want. Right, wrong or indifferent this guy has rights too. He doesn’t discriminate against gay people that come into the restaurants; he just stated his stance on the subject. The mayor is also a piece of work, shouldn’t he be supporting everyone? Why punish the man and the company for his beliefs?
You just can’t speak your mind anymore without fear of retaliation; keep your thoughts to yourself. If you oppose gay marriage too bad for you but if you support it then hey you must be someone special. It’s the
same with the gun debate, do guns kill people or do people kill people? Choose the wrong answer and you could be in big trouble. I think it sucks that our world has come to this.
If people don’t want to eat at Chik-fil-A then they can make that choice. It should be about how good the chicken is, not about the beliefs of the company president. Why do we have to draw a line in the sand and practice grade school antics? Why can’t everyone just grow up and get along for crying out loud?
Yesterday went down in the history books as being the hottest day
here in 24 years. I think we hit 104 degrees. And what was I doing on the
hottest day of the year? I was baking! Yep, it’s true, cupcakes and blueberry muffins now proudly sit on my kitchen counter. It’s never too hot to bake chocolate cupcakes.
Over and out!
