And we wonder why bullying is such an issue for our children today.
I don’t even recognize the country I live in anymore.
You ever feel that way?
Of course, then I remember that part of our nation’s history has always been about trashing others.
What is the matter with us?
Why do we derive so much wicked pleasure out of making meanness a habit?
All you Chick-fil-A haters, doesn’t it occur to you how hypocritical you look? You are upset because President and CEO Dan Cathy came out against same-sex marriage. So a slew of you got together and began bullying Chick-fil-A.
Some city officials made it known that Chick-fil-A isn’t welcome in their communities.
Some haters got together and decided they would stage protests at Chick-fil-A sites.
So intense was the backlash that Don Perry, PR honcho, suffered a fatal heart attack. And even then the haters didn’t let up. Instead they spewed their venom on blogs, Twitter & Facebook, calling Perry’s death Karma, and justice.
What exactly is the goal here?
This sort of bullying isn’t likely to endear Dan Cathy to the LGBT community. Instead, it will probably only reinforce every misconception he may already hold.
Bullying people into thinking your way never, ever works.
That is not transformation.
It’s a form of national domestic violence that threatens the welfare of us all.
Not to mention one of the most important principles of this country — Freedom of Speech.
Maybe we ought to just revise that to say Freedom to Bully.
