Via Queerty: Youth Empowered To Act Protests Chick-Fil-A Grand Opening:
In the early morning hours yesterday, a group of young LGBT advocates stood bleary-eyed but steadfast outside the new Chick-fil-A in Laguna Hills, California, letting people know there were better options (even if those chicken sandwiches are as good as people tell us they are). The teens, members of Youth Empowered To Act(YETA) distributed fliers informing potential customers of Chick-fil-a’s links to anti-gay organizations and the company’s stance against marriage equality.
You know what? I prefer Chick fil A because the best option for me and really the best option for all Americans is the freedom of speech and freedom of religion guaranteed to all of us via the First Amendment, but then maybe these “youths” never learned about the American Constitution. Their minds have been filled with cultural Marxist claptrap like “queer theory”, instead.
We should all be able to express our opinions freely without fear of retribution from a vocal minority of perennial malcontents who you know won’t stop pushing and pushing until they’ve forced every church in America to perform gay “marriage” ceremonies against their will.
We know who the totalitarians are, and they’re not the people who are trying to preserve the meanings of words, institutions, and holy sacraments.
We already have “marriage equality” in this country, thank you very much. Under the age-old, time-honored, universal meaning of the word, marriage between men and women of all races and creeds are legal and accepted. People of the same sex have “civil unions” which bestow upon the couple all of the same rights that a married couple has. If the perennially disgruntled aren’t happy with the term, “civil union”, how about “quarriage”? I don’t care what you call it. Just don’t call it marriage – because it isn’t. You can’t have that word.
Gays and Lesbians have a right to live as they choose,
they don’t have the right to redefine marriage for all of us.
People should be able to eat wherever they like – gays are welcome to work or eat at Chick fil A. But if Chick fil A’s utterly mainstream stance on gay marriage upsets liberal gay sensibilities, there’s always KFC:
See, conservatives might view that as an obnoxiously opportunistic display of political correctness. But you won’t see any of us protesting KFC because they have every right to be obnoxious.
Of course, now that I’ve discovered how delicious Chick fil A is, I no longer need to go to KFC when I feel like a chicken sammich.
The current hate campaign being waged by homosexual activists against fast food chain Chick-fil-A, because of the firm’s Christian values, may well turn out to be a bridge too far. The effort may prove to be a setback for homosexual activism.
The vile attacks on the firm and its owners, the Cathy family, should make clear, finally, that the “gay rights” movement is not about refining and advancing American freedom, but about rewriting American values and advancing, not freedom, but the homosexual political agenda.
