S. Truett Cathy, in case you don't know, is the founder of the Chick Fil A fast food joint chain.

Now you should be connected. If case you're living under a rock, go google the news for Chick Fil A and come back to finish reading.

In the meantime

GO TRUETT GO! and GO CHICK FIL A GO!

I have not lost my mind. I have not changed my opinions regarding same-gender marriage and people attracted to members of the same sex.

It took a post from my longtime friend Pakrat, on FB, to remind me of something very important in this none-news item (which I am further putting in the public eye).

GO TRUETT GO! and GO CHICK FIL A GO!

Mr. Cathy has a taken a stand for his beliefs and principles and is weathering the storm for this.
All the better to step on you with.

Gotta say it again.  GO TRUETT GO! and GO CHICK FIL A GO!

That I do not agree with Mr. Cathy's statements, opinions and personal stance on this issue is entire irrelevant.

The simple fact is, Mr. Cathy is demonstrating a piece of anatomy which far too many people are lacking. Mr. Cathy is proving he is part of the Chordate phylum.

In other words, Mr. Cathy has a spine.

Spines are  lacking far too often in this world. To give the current president credit for having a spine, he personally orders drone attacks on suspected terrorists. He does not delegate this responsibility as his predecessor did. That takes a modicum of backbone. Unfortunately on far too many other matters, he and most of those in Washington have the approximate bone mass of a fleet of cannonball jellyfish.

Mr. Cathy, in espousing his belief on homosexuality, is embodying one of the major principles of this nation.
Their version of free speech.

The right to have and express an opinion.

More power to him!

Those who are angered at him and seek to shut down his free speech are, frankly, the kind of idiots who need to put up against the wall. They seek to silence a free flow of information. They see to usurp the bastion of a free world. They are the Thought Police of the Orwellian nightmares who would have us all forced into one mold, one pattern, one way of everything.

In short, they do not want freedom.

I do not agree with Mr. Cathy's opinion and position. I say so publicly. Those who would seek to shut Mr. Cathy's mouth also seek to close mine.

I will not accept that.

At the same time, Mr. Cathy's business may suffer. Those who disagree with him and his views may take their dining business elsewhere. To you who intend to do this, I say.

GO BABY GO! I'm right behind you all the way!

You see, I support Mr. Cathy's freedom to have and express his opinions. I support the freedom of other people to not do business with Mr. Cathy's chain if they do not support him.

Freedom.

True freedom means the right to choose, not have decisions forced on you.
