Overdone LGBT Chicken

One day it will be impossible to criticize the fanatics of the LBGT community.

In fact, it is almost a cultural sin to do it today. The difference today vs the future is today we can only be spat on, lose our jobs, be banned from social media, or shamed on Twitter. Corporately the scheme is to harass employees, boycott, or create such a stir that the franchisee be denied a lease. So I suspect the day will come when all unbelievers will be prosecuted and jailed for dismissing this dogma and holding views that doubt them. Would-be Christians who hold biblical values and contend for traditional marriage and believe that natural sexual purity is good and right in the eyes of God, are the main targets of these radicals.

You do know I have friends in and supportive of the gay community whom I love and admire! That I have said God is working on all of us and sin is not exclusive to this community, in fact I believe, as one dear friend pointed out, too much social emphasis is put on this one issue. But inevitably just when I begin to become a mellow fellow on the subject, a sudden and irrational outbreak of the most stupid and nastiest fanatics of LGBT movement show their colors. Their intolerant zealotry is reminiscent of the dark age burning of witches and heretics emerges. It seems to bring them great joy to despise people who don’t subscribe to their behavior, their values. Sound familiar?

So what’s my beef? It has nothing to do with beef, it’s about the chicken! Chick-fill-A to be specific. The headling in a CNBC article read, “Chick-fil-A’s first UK location will close after pressure from LGBTQ rights group.” A British shopping center leasing the location said it will not extend the restaurant’s six-month lease because of pressure by a radical LGBT group, the BBC reported Friday. Fortunatly the company makes the best fast food chicken sandwiches on the planet and this incident will not stop them from delivering delicious sandwiches and “award winning” customer service to ALL who buy their food. But the message is clear, these radicals cannot tolerate different opinions on marriage. As you know the founder of the company, Dan Cathy, a long time ago made public comments opposing gay marriage, just as I am doing today!

I don’t own a business anymore and I’m not very influential, but if this blog goes viral, God forbid, I would expect to get a strong whiff of the fierce joy which comes from despising others. The tactics of these groups reminds me of the Age of Inquisitions.

I won’t try to argue here on the rightness or wrongness of one’s sexuality, I’ve done that in other writings. So don’t try to goad me into a fight about the causes or “rightness” of LGBT issues. I know from multiple experiences that supporters respond to reasonable doubt with fury and defamatory cries of “bigotry.”

You should rather look within. Thanks to the political and media class’s dim witted acceptance of shouted propaganda, and their rejection of reason, these LBGT radicals are continually damaging themselves and their acceptance by keeping the spotlight on their wacko tactics.

Whether you favor one side or the other, to reasonable folks, these sort of tactics do more harm than good. Pray tell us what is going on behind these self-satisfied, insensable expressions of hate? Seriously, it’s just Chicken and righteousness that I enjoy!

The best thinkers are not who you think!

I’m seldom surprised by the parroted thoughts of elite, highly educated people. They all seem to get their information from their peers or through mainstream sources. Even my friends, the ones I like best, seldom add much to the days story or significant events. If I see one post I’ll see a different version regurgitated again and again. I too find it challenging to not parrot someone I’ve heard or read, but I think hard and try not to. I just don’t have the gifts some do!

Today I was reminded that the people we least think likely to have anything thoughtful to say often surprise! Most of the time these are loggers, McDonald’s cashiers, carpenters, or the likes of less educated people who labor for a living. I’m not writing of people with means, but people who have big hearts. The guy who drives the old truck. He wears dirty jeans, work boots, and an old hat. He’s the guy who drinks Bud Light, not the newest IPA from the hip microbrewery. If you have a party he brings his own beer. He’s the guy you call when you need something done you don’t want to do. If you don’t know this guy you need to get out more often! I even met one in Hay On Wye in Wales. These people are so special it humbles me to think how stupid I must look to them, living in my starter castle and all. God has blessed many of them far more than He has me.

One guy, a friend of mine, today posted something on a random political piece. The kind of public political site where you would expect only highly educated, elite Oxford wannabes to show off their superiority. He came up with a comment that surely surprised us all. But the funny thing is it was “liked” by several people who I would describe as elitists, including myself in an educated, thoughtful way. It was a sharp comment, witty and funny at the same time, one I could never have originated in my pea sized brain.

My friend you probably know I’m writing about you, I’d put nothing past you. You are a joy to know, a friend I’d like to better know and hang out with. Please stop by sometime, you can add much to my life. I don’t have any Bud Lights, but I recently bought some Coors Light, that’s about as far down the beer pole I can dance.
