So Chik-Fil-A feels put upon by the gay community and their supporters. They don't understand the furor over the statements of the president of their company. They - allegedly - don't see anything wrong with denying equality to people they - allegedly - consider different.
Neither did Adolf Hitler . . . and everybody knows how that turned out.
To deny equality - PERIOD - to anybody is WRONG! There is no argument to be had for denying somebody equal rights/protection under the law.
Still, many people in this country, and around the world, don't have a problem claiming that they are more deserving of equal rights than their brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, parents, friends, children, whatever who happen to - by the grace of God - been born gay (this term is inclusive of gays, lesbians, bisexual, and transgendered people).
Now, I guarantee you, if you told any of these people, because say, they had blue eyes and brown hair, that they were unable to marry, say, a person with blonde hair and green eyes . . . they'd have a MAJOR problem with that statement. I mean, it's not their fault they were born with blue eyes and brown hair. That's genetics, after all. It's not like it's a choice - like their religious preference or political preference or the fact that they shop at Krogers versus Publix. It's genetics.
Yes, I know, the allegedly narrow-minded people in the world believe that homosexuality is a choice. It isn't. It's how I - and all gay people - were born. God made us this way, even though the faux Christians out there would like to conveniently forget that fact.
Still, these same people don't have a problem saying - like Hitler before them - I'm better than all the gays in the world. I'm heterosexual. I deserve to pay less taxes since I can legally get married. I deserve - though this has been rectified - to sit at the hospital bedside of the person I love more than anything else in this life . . . as long as I'm a heterosexual. I'm heterosexual, so equality isn't an issue for me or mine!
And these same people, actually don't realize the hatred they are spouting toward other human beings. They don't have a problem with attacking a group of people because, in their narrow-eyed view, they are different!
Well, for the record, yes I am different. I'm not like everybody else out there. I'm an individual. I'm the way God made me.
I don't hate the narrow-minded in this world. I just feel sorry for them that they can't see that denying equality is wrong, that supporting organizations that actively seek to deny equality to citizens is wrong.
