Ok, I’ve sat quiet long enough. I don’t like to “take sides” here and I’m not about to start. This s an issue that touches a lot of people deeply and I understand that. My intention is not to belittle anyone people or groups, but simply state something that I have observed over this past week or so. that being said, If i hear one more thing from EITHER side about Chick-fil-a I going to flip some tables. So a MAN, not a whole company(even if he is an important part of that company)…1 MAN said some things that offended others.
GET OVER IT. It’s not like the company is saying “WE HATE GAYS AND LESBIANS!!” They’re not. They’re fighting for their beliefs just as the gay and lesbian community is fighting for theirs. The thing is…why? It’s not like the company doesn’t hire gays or lesbians. It’s not like they don’t offer them ALL the same doors as other employees in the “glorious” fast food industry. He mad a comment about his beliefs of a family. But, for all you out there Supporting his “freedom of speech” get over it. Just cause 1 MAN says something it’s law and you ALL march like sheep to the ideal? Give me a break.
Right wrong, who are we to decide. Let people live THEIR OWN LIVES AND GET OFF THE BANDWAGON. I don’t care who or what you are; if you’re a chill person, awesome let’s hang out. Don’t waste your time, and mine by giving 1 MAN this kind of power over you. We’re all better than that. Both sides of this little pissing match need to grow up and pull up their pampers. I’m not condoning anything that EITHER side has said, but I think we all have more important matters to worry about. Like maybe living our lives everyday to the best of our abilities. Seizing everyday and letting all those around us know we care about them. Are the words of 1 person really worth all this drama? I don’t think so. In fact I’d never even heard of the guy before this incident. Why would I give someone I don’t know the same time of day as those I consider friends? I wouldn’t. So why do you? Don’t defend him, don’t hate him, just ignore him. Haters gonna hate.
Thanks for your time in reading this, though I don’t know how many friends I’ll manage to keep after this-it needed to be said. My goal isn’t to support one side or the other, just simply explain how us people in the middle feel. We have friends that work there, or family even. Why are you directing your hate at them? Is it their fault they are fighting to hold a job with an 8.3% unemployment rate? No it’s not. On the other hand, way would to belittle someone because they’re not what YOU want them to be? That’s plain wrong. I’m not in support of either side here, I just want all this to stop and us to all get along. Hope It comes out that way.
