Intolerance means something won’t be tolerated. Did Chic-Fil-A state they wouldn’t allow gays to eat there? No. Have they gotten all of their employees together and rallied at the local gay support groups to protest? No. All they said was they support a man-woman marriage. They never said ‘We Hate Gays‘. Sounds to me like the ones who are suffering from intolerance are the very ones making these claims against the Christian-based company. Again, I don’t get it.
They want the right of free speech. They want the right to their beliefs. They want to be able to promote their opinions (and their businesses opinions) the way they see fit- yet when someone else does the same thing- and it’s against their own opinion– there is a great cry of ‘Intolerance!’ and they rally around the so-called offender until they see things their way.
Sorry, but that’s bullying. Chic-Fil-A is not the one doing the wrong thing here. Those who are fighting Chic-Fil-A are the ones who show the most intolerance. Bullying is notaccepted in our schools, so why is this type of behavior acceptable in society?
I encourage you who are supportive of a man-woman marriage to go to Chic-Fil-A and show your support- even if you can only afford the one dollar ice cream cone. Let them know that you’re there for them, and you believe in a biblical marriage too. Write to the company president and tell him. Blog it. Facebook it. Share this post. Do what you can against this bullying that’s being misconstrued as intolerance.
And to those at Chic-Fil-A…Don’t let the bullies win!
