I think it's time to go eat at Chick-fil-A.
What a backlash they received for one statement in support of the biblical view of marriage. Not even a statement anti-anything. All of a sudden, it's not about reason or truth anymore, but about bullying and boycotts.
Salon says, "Chick-fil-A Starts a Culture War" (Wow, and here I thought traditional marriage had been around a long time.) A Chicago alderman wants to block Chick-fil-A from business. Even the Muppets have dumped Chick-fil-A.
Read what the CEO really said here. Here's what the media is saying about Chick-fil-A.
The reaction has been quite hostile. "It’s fascism, actually," noted Elizabeth Scalia in the Patheos Catholic portal. It's the increasing use of law, power and outright intimidation to bring people into line with a national social agenda. No black shirts needed, just a loud voice.
James Schall writes, "But distinctions do matter. We were once allowed to be what we held. Catholics were Catholics. Jews were Jews. It was all right. We now have an overarching 'law' that tells us that we cannot be what we are. The university, once a place that respected distinctions and diversity of ways of life, is now an engine that allows nothing but its own definition of diversity. And diversity means that nothing can be diverse." (In "The Heaviest Oppression")
The intolerance of postmodern tolerance is simply breath-taking.
