Meanwhile, Rod Dreher has a brilliant idea. Buy Chik-Fil-A for the homeless. You do several works of mercy at once: feeding the hungry, instructing the ignorant, admonishing sinner, and comforting the afflicted. This particular witchhunt by the Left is as despicable and sinister as anything done by Joe McCarthy. I think we have a duty to find some way to tell the witch hunters to blow it out their ear. May this turn out to be a financial windfall for Chik-Fil-A. They should make a special point of supplying a Christian food relief charity and inviting the fascist mayor of Boston to make some matching grant. It would be nice to Caesar and a major corporation do something that results in helping instead of trampling the poor for a change.
This is all about some fake-journalism scheme dreamed up by a few extremely parochial, bourgeois anti-Christian bigots who work in the Newsweek/Daily Beast building in lower Manhattan.
It’s not about reforming a great social wrong. It’s about destroying the reputation of a restaurant whose owners are traditional Christians who share the views on marriage of half the country. (…)Listen, pro-gay folks: this kind of thing is why many Christians and other social conservatives fear what’s coming.
It is not enough for many on your side to achieve your goals of legal equality.
You seek to destroy anybody who dissents, including ruining them professionally. And you have the mainstream media on your side.
A while back, I was chastised for speaking of Gay Brownshirts. If its bad to *say* “Gay Brownshirt”, just imagine how bad it is to act like one. That the mayors of large metropolitan areas are jumping on this shameful fascistic bandwagon to crush free speech should be an embarrassment to the Left. That it is instead a source of pride simply illustrates the simple power of Kathy Shaidle’s words, “Dear Gay Militants. This is why people can’t stand you.” Call off the dogs, or may your campaign backfire and lead to record profits for Chik-Fil-A.
