Crystal Willcuts: Chick-fil-A draws line in sand on discrimination
Posted: Thursday, August 2, 2012
"Oh Chick-fil-A, when will you love again? Why drag waffle fries into this? They are innocent I tell you!
In July, Dan Cathy, president of the popular Georgia-based fast food chain, Chick-fil-A, made anti-gay comments on a radio show saying that “we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage. And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.”
Mr. Cathy, I think it’s time to look in the mirror before you talk about pride and arrogance. Marriage predates recorded history and there are various definitions of marriage according to the society or culture one belongs to. The audacity lies in the belief that one very narrow definition of marriage should apply across the full spectrum of humanity and those non-conformists should be treated as outcasts."
