I just came back from participating in my first ever demonstration. It was peaceful, thank God. And that's the word that was kind of at the center of it or at least His written word.
I am not an evangelist and couldn't care less what your religion is, or if you even have one. It's your choice. But I sure do care about freedom of speech. How could that have anything to do with God and his written word and a peaceful demonstration?
Simple, we went to . Were you there? It was wonderful. For a demonstration, it was pretty tame. No chanting or singing. No: "we will overcome."
No confronting of police. People stood in line and smiled and talked about why they were there. The cars moved in line to the fast-serve window. We waited about 30 minutes in line outside to get served. Why were we there?
Freedom of speech doesn't just go one way. It's not just for liberal causes; it's for every American. People died for this freedom. It is our First Amendment.
The CEO of Chick-Fil-A had the nerve to say that he believed in the Bible's definition of marriage and being married to his first wife. What an animal! How dare he say that, said the mayor of Chicago, Barry's old chief of staff.
There will be no Chick-Fil-A's in Chicago if he has anything to say about it. The mayor of Boston has said the same thing. There will be no Chick-Fil-A's there if he has anything to say about it. After all, that's not what Boston stands for. Boston doesn't stand for free speech? Interesting isn't it.
Where is John Adams when you need him? So, if I understand these mayors correctly it's OK to speak in favor of "Gay Pride," "Gay Marriage," "Gay" whatever but don't think for a moment you can speak out for the definition of marriage as God says in the Bible. Does it seem just a bit one sided?
Should it ever have gotten to this point where we can be ruled into thinking that freedom of speech only protects the Left and not the Right? Shame on US.
