Free speech is a funny thing. We're free to speak our mind, but the result is not free of consequences.
The CEO of Chick-fil-A is experiencing that right now. And I'd love to hear from my fans what they think about it all. Here's the story in a nutshell:
Dan Cathy the CEO is a devout Christian. And in an interview the other day, he said this, "“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think we can try to define what marriage is all about.”
It's pretty heavy-handed stuff. And if someone wants to express their First Amendment rights by not buying his product, that's fine. But look at what some government officials are doing. In Chicago and Boston, lawmakers are telling Cathy he's not welcome to build stores there. Are you kidding me? Chick-fil-A building permits are land use issues. Why are we mixing that with his personal opinions? Let the people boycott Chick-fil-A, but don't make up new laws because you are bothered by his words. It's just as bad as a mayor or a city council telling you no boycotts are allowed when you want to express your free speech through boycott.
Free speech has consequences. But let those consequences play out without violating someone's rights in the process. And remember to show your support for the First Amendment by contributing to StandWithKT.com.
