Don’t let liberals get away with saying they’re for “diversity.” They only want people to be different on the outside – like different hair, skin, and eye color. But what about being different on the inside? Well, that’s where they draw the line.
The latest example of this is when the president of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, answered a question in an interview with Baptist Press. He said their company is “very much supportive of the family… the biblical definition of the family unit.”
During an interview on “The Ken Coleman Show,” he explained his position further:
“I think we are 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.’ “
Do you think liberals celebrated Cathy’s beliefs, which add a little diversity to the conversation about gay marriage? After all, many companies are trying to make gay marriage mainstream. (For example, Office Depot’s decision to partner with Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.) So, did liberals embrace Chick-fil-A, as a mark of their tolerance and diversity?
Um, not so much.
Hollywood actors said they wouldn’t eat there anymore, Facebook lit up with protest, and the mayor of Boston said he wouldn’t let any more Chick-fil-A restaurants into his city.
Why? Because the company’s president believes what most Americans believe: that marriage should be between a man and a woman.
So, help me understand this, liberals. Are you for true and difficult diversity – diversity of opinion, religion, and beliefs? The kind of diversity that requires talking to each other about our differences of opinion and ideas? Or just the easy kind of diversity that makes for cool advertisements?
Either way, I appreciate Chick-fil-A and will make it a point to stop at the next one I see. I don’t think there are any in Alaska, but I urge all people who believe in traditional marriage to “eat more chikn.”
