The Intolerance of the Tolerant
The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, recently came under fire for committing the sin of eating at Chick-Fil-A during Gay Pride Month. Dorsey tweeted that he saved 10% on an order at the fast food restaurant using a “boost”, a cashback reward earned when using a debit card. The left immediately pounced.
“Why is Twitter boosting a notoriously anti-gay company during #PrideMonth?”
“This is an interesting company to boost during Pride Month. @jack.”
“Did your meal come with a side-order of homophonic bigotry or did you pay extra for it?
In very short order Dorsey apologized. “You’re right. Completely forgot about their background.”
What led up to this? In 2012, the then CEO of Chick-Fil-A, Dan Cathay, expressed his personal, sincerely held religious belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. Donations have also been made to several organizations which promote traditional marriage.
Although Chick-Fil-A has never been accused of discriminating against homosexuals, the personal beliefs of the owner is enough to demand a boycott of this business. A cursory examination reveals that Chick-Fil-A has been sued for alleged gender discrimination and discrimination against the disabled. But there has not been one case filed against Chick-Fil-A alleging discrimination based upon sexual orientation or identity. Chick-Fil-A hires, promotes and serves homosexuals on a daily basis.
The political arm of the homosexual community has been referred to as “the “Borg.” Acceptance and tolerance are no longer enough. A complete and total embrace of their lifestyle and ideology are demanded, even if it requires denying one’s faith. This command of the “collective” is so strong that even members of the homosexual community, who eat at Chick-Fil-A, were bullied into silence. A few brave souls, however, did speak up.
“Don’t give in to these people and their complaints. I’m gay and I LOVE ChickfilA. Ridiculous. Go on and eat that ChickfilA and post as much as you want about it!”
It is a sad day when someone has to apologize for eating what is arguably the best fast food fried chicken sandwich in America. It is also a sad day when a person’s religious beliefs, that in no way affect how that person conducts his business, is weaponized against them. So much for the United States Constitution. But to paraphrase Star Trek “We are the homosexual community. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated or destroyed.”
