What is troubling to me it that the mayor of a city (the murder capital of the US) is using his political office to threaten and punish a business for the political and religious beliefs of the company’s executives. This is patently illegal and fascistic – but right in step with the liberal left’s (starting with Obama’s) response to anyone who disagrees with their ideas: no matter how goofy. It is their utter and self-righteous intolerance that makes them so dangerous and obnoxious. The idea there can be only one correct idea about same sex marriage is lunacy. Here we have basically a brand new idea that is inconsistent with virtually all of human history (apart from the late Roman emperor who married his horse) being elevated to a position of such sanctity that merely saying you disagree is a crime. Where is the good old gang of four that terrorized China when you need them? They seem (classically) liberal compared to the intolerance of the new liberal. What makes this truly ridiculous is the way Chick-Fila operates. There is one down the street from me. There can be a line of 50 cars at lunch and you will be served almost immediately. That’s how efficient and well trained the staff is. But then, that’s just one more thing that annoys liberals: a well-run business that doesn’t need an Obama bailout.
PS: Suppose that the mayor of a city refused to allow shops with United Colors of Benetton clothing to be permitted because the mayor thought that their advertising promoted inter-racial marriage. What would the “liberal” reaction be?
