According to some liberals, eating Chick-Fil-A is controversial. Welcome to 2018.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey gave in to the liberal backlash after he posted a picture on Twitter showing his purchase from Chick-Fil-A.
Many liberals were unhappy to see the Twitter CEO supporting a company who advocates for traditional marriage values.
On behalf of the whole LGBTQ community, Jack, kindly boost your head out of your ass.— Adam Goldman (@theadamgoldman) June 10, 2018
Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien expressed her discomfort, suggesting it's inappropriate to support Chick-Fil-A during pride month.
“You’re right,” he tweeted. “Completely forgot about their background.”
You’re right. Completely forgot about their background— jack (@jack) June 10, 2018
Even Senator Marco Rubio shared his thoughts, warning of the future that lies ahead if people continue to give in to the "twitter mob."
.@ChickfilA isn’t denying service to anyone. But if you eat there you must be attacked by the twitter mob b/c owner agrees with what his church teaches about marriage? Why would twitter mob stop at biz owned by Christians? Who is next? Christian schools? Christian charities?— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) June 11, 2018
Julio Rosas of the Independent Journal Review pointed out that Chick-Fil-A’s “background” is nothing to be ashamed of, citing their service after the Orlando shooting at a gay club.
Yet, still, liberals insist that Chick-Fil-A is hateful for its support for traditional marriage.
David French addressed this idea last week in response the story of a CrossFit employee who was fired for his religious views.
What qualifies an external critic to define the veracity of a man’s faith or the purity of the thoughts in his heart? There seems to be a mistaken belief by some that sexual orientation is absolutely core to a person’s identity whereas religion is something else entirely — so superficial that any given person is one Vox explainer or Bill Maher monologue away from enlightenment.
Attacking a company because of their religious views is a poor look. And as we saw in the decision of the Masterpiece Cakeshop case last week, it’s a losing cause. If liberals are actually interested in finding a middle ground on LGBT issues, they should quit labeling a common, and what should be a protected, religious view as “bigoted.”
