Sheep-Fil-A (or The Blind Following the Blind)

9 Aug

First of all, let me say this, I am sick to death of this whole Chick-Fil-A bullshit.  No one knows what anyone is screaming about at this point.  People are supporting this, that, and the other and throwing stones in their own glass houses without a clue one about what is at the heart of the matter.  I don’t give two wet shakes of a turgid tallwhacker about the verbal diarrhea of some bigoted assclown running a fast food joint.  This is America.  You are free to barf up whatever idiocy you please.  More power to you.

THAT, however, is NOT what the boycott was or is about.  The whole reasoning behind not giving your hard earned two-cents to such a place is because said deep fried hatred supports ANTI-EQUALITY groups and organizations.  When you spend your money at such a place, you might as just plop your money down and sign on the dotted line to groups like the Westboro Baptist Lunatics.  It was not about what Mr. Jerkoff said about upholding Christian Values, or the sanctity of marriage (which, really, how many of you really wear that one? Come on, now).  The LGBT community is refusing to pay for the funding of hate groups, anti-gay legislation, discrimination, and out-and-out bigotry.  The Media and The Masses heard what they wanted to hear and spun it completely into whichever favor they wanted – and now, on the likes of Facebook especially, it’s somehow turned into to some Freedom of Speech issue.

Know what you are supporting, people.  Look it up.  If you can foam about it and “Like” it and “Retweet” and repost it, you can certainly figure out how to manage a simple internet search engine.  Educate yourselves.  Ignorance is not bliss.  You, the supposedly “gay friendly” included, are giving your hard earned dollars to hate and discrimination with each waffle fry you hoover down.  Think about it.

And if we are going to go sling about Christian values, have a gander at Luke 6:39 in which the parable was told:  “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?”

Take of your blinders.  Research what you are getting up in arms about – and then think about it – really think about it.  That bandwagon you are jumping on might knock your ass off and run you down one of these days if you’re not careful.
