Liberals stuck their beaks where they shouldn’t be and they learned a hard lesson on Wednesday last.
The condemnation and vilification of Dan Cathy, COO of Chick-fil-a, was supposed to be a gay old party for LGBT deviants. But the yolk was on the liberals as evangelicals and conservatives turned out en masse to defend traditional marriage and Mr. Cathy’s right to free speech.
It was glorious. Those who would silence free speech were shouted down through an unprecedented show of unity in the body of Christ. Millions of God-fearing Americans taking their Christian religious beliefs along with their First Amendment rights outside the church walls.
It was a beautiful thing to behold. It made you proud to be an American.
Many Americans didn’t get to see much of this uplifting experience as most of the characteristically cocky “progressive” blogs and “news” sites observed radio silence as left-wing elitists, media, activists, politicos and pundits, sat in stunned disbelief.
Still, not to be outdone, liberals were determined to beat a dead chicken. As liberty-loving folks peacefully showed support for real marriage with nuggets and waffle fries on Wednesday, “gay” activists held a pathetically attended “kiss-in” at various Chick-fil-A locations on Friday.
We couldn’t ask for a starker contrast. Whereas marriage supporters peacefully patronized Chick-fil-A to demand tolerance for varying viewpoints, homosexual activists engaged in gross, sexually charged public displays deliberately designed to shock and offend children and families.
I believe this is just the beginning, a preview of things to come. In November, America serves Obama and Democrats the main course.
So be encouraged. Despite liberals’ best efforts, freedom of speech, God’s design for marriage and reverence for sexual morality are alive and well in America. There is still hope for this great nation.
