Anybody who's been following the culture wars of late knows that some of the most brutal and bloody battles are being fought along the gay rights front. For too long, a long-suffering minority group has been beaten down and bullied by the more powerful and unsympathetic masses.
Finally, we are seeing a hero emerge to rally the oppressed, raise their spirits and charge into the thick of the carnage to fight alongside God-fearing Christian companies like Chick Fil-A to defend their rights as Americans to be bigoted and discriminatory in the name of their religion…
"I have been incensed at the vitriolic assaults on the Chick Fil-A company because the CEO, Dan Cathy, made comments recently in which he affirmed his view that the Biblical view of marriage should be upheld. The Cathy family, let by Chick Fil-A founder Truett Cathy, are a wonderful Christian family who are committed to operating the company with Biblical principles and whose story is the true American success story.
"Starting at age 46 Truett Cathy built Chick Fil-A into a $4 billion a year enterprise with over 1600 stores. At 91, he is still active in the company, but his son Dan runs it day to day as CEO. It's a great American story that is being smeared by vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry from the left."
"Vitriolic assaults!" "Vicious hate speech!" "Intolerant bigotry from the left!" When will it end?
Why can't great American companies like Chick Fil-A be left alone to filter money into organizations like Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council — good Bible-minded groups that are actively working to curtail the rights of certain U.S. citizens — without having other groups and companies exercising their own rights to point out such donations and encourage people to not contribute their own money to it?
I just feel so overcome with the Spirit knowing that a public figure of Mike Huckabee's caliber has come to their defense. And, hey, if he manages to get a little complimentary fried chicken out of the deal, where's the harm in that?
