I like to rant.
A good friend of mine calls them “MH rants” & laughs her ass off when I get going.
Today on ASH Multimedia…an MH rant!
I’ve remained fairly mum on the Chick-Fil-A controversy because frankly, it makes me angry. The idea that groups still exist that defend “traditional” marriage make me want to puke.
Anyone who follows this blog knows that I am a long standing & proud representative of the “gay agenda”. This is not just because my best friends are gay, it’s because we as humans are entitled to choose our own mate & the God I closest identify with told me “Judge not lest you be judged”. So I don’t judge; I don’t care if you’re both male, female or sea monster, as long as you’re consenting unrelated adults, have fun. Think about it, 20 years ago, multiracial families were considered offensive, now no one bats an eyelash. 20 years from now, I hope it’s the same with LGBT couples.
When the owner of Chick-Fil-A said that he donates to hate groups, I was delighted to see everyone from average Joes to the Muppets stand up & say they will no longer support this bigot & his restaurant. I’ve heard “LGBTs work there so he’s not a bigot!” nope, that’s affirmative action. He just can’t fire them because they are. However, the idea that people should stop boycotting Chick-Fil-A because of a personal opinion & the chicken is still good baffles me.
First of all, I’ve never had it, so it could taste like ambrosia & I would never know. Secondly, THAT’S YOUR MONEY THAT HE GIVES TO THE HATE GROUPS! If you don’t support these groups, why give it to them through the back door?! We as humans have a responsibility to stand behind our actions. If we don’t support certain agendas, don’t support businesses that do. Target hadn’t seen a dime of my money until April when they proved they no longer support hate groups & now allow same sex wedding registries. I have principles & I stand by them & won’t allow myself to be associated with them in any way. However, I wonder if the same folks who are claiming the boycott of Chick-Fil-A is unjust participated in the Nabisco boycott because Oreo supported Pride week. It’s the same thing, if you don’t believe in it, don’t support the business.
Free speech is not just for the things that you like. Each point is entitled to a counter point. That’s how it works. Don’t make a statement if you don’t want it challenged. In this case, don’t claim you want to deny rights to 1:7 people of you don’t want to people to tell you they think you’re wrong.
