Dan Cathy has stirred up quite a hornet’s nest.
Cathy, president of the Chick-fil-A restaurant chain, had the audacity to say recently that he defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman: “Guilty as charged.” This has riled up the liberal masses.
Boston’s mayor says he no longer wants Chick-fil-A in his city. The company behind the Muppets backed out of a deal to partner with Chick-fil-A on kids meals toys. An alderman in Chicago says he plans to prevent the company from building a restaurant in his ward. “If you are discriminating against a segment of the community, I don’t want you in the 1st Ward,” he said.
But Chick-fil-A isn’t discriminating against anyone. Cathy is an easy target because he’s an unabashed Christian who walks the walk — for example, his restaurants are closed on Sundays.
If Cathy were a Muslim, would anyone have said boo about his stance on gay marriage? No way. He certainly wouldn’t have been subjected to vitriol such as that spewed by “actress” Roseanne Barr, who tweeted that those who eat “antibiotic filled tortured chickens 4Christ” deserve to get “the cancer that is sure to come.”
