Handling It

I will have to admit that I have had some fun with the hoopla over Chick-Fil-A. Please do not take that to mean that I think it is a laughing matter. I DO NOT. If I am asked point blank if I am for gay marriage, my answer is no, I am not for gay marriage. Without any further discussion, there are some who would brand me as living in the stone ages and biased. Just like a few people did to the owner of Chick-Fil-A. Then the media blew it completely out of proportion, and look what happened. If I am allowed to give more than just a yes or no answer, here it is. I am against gay marriage. I also voted against amendment one, and firmly believe that I do not have the right to dictate to others what they do in privacy of their own homes as long as they are not hurting others. I also feel the government needs to quit trying to legislate morality, whatever their definition might happen to be. If everybody in this country are required to pay taxes, then the law should apply equally to everyone. If we balance the playing field, any legitimate argument for gay marriage goes away. The other thing I find puzzling is how many people dust off their Bibles when it is convenient, and the rest of the time live how they want regardless of what the Bible says. No one is perfect, but the people that truly believe, never have to tell you they are a Christian, you know by how they conduct themselves every single day.......

I do hope there is a silver lining in all of this. I hope that everyone that went to Chick-Fil-A yesterday is registered to vote, and will show the same tenacity showing up in November to vote. I hope they will educate themselves on all the issues and become an informed voter. I also hope that everyone will realize a personal opinion does not justify a boycott. This man was asked a question and gave an honest answer. He is not on the airways every single day bashing people. Everyone in this world is not a politician. They have not been trained to talk out of both sides of their mouths without saying anything. In my opinion, this is a good thing. Give an honest man a break, he deserves it.

To the poster above me, you certainly imply a lot that I did not say in my original post. I said I wanted people to educate themselves, I did not give the curriculum. I said I wanted a majority to decide the election, I did not tell anyone how to vote. I would like for one election to be decided by a true majority. That means if you will stand in line for hour(s) to prove your point, then you should be willing to stand in line to do something that actually matters like voting. It is called putting your vote where your opinion is.
