Adam Smith, who posted an online video of himself going through a Chick-fil-A drive-thru and ordering only the free water, was canned from his gig as chief financial officer of Vante, a Tucson medical manufacturing company, after the video made the rounds. (“Viral video of man picking on Chick-fil-A worker gets him fired”).Smith is obviously a bully. Only a bully would confront a restaurant employee, who is clearly in no position to defend herself, with the kind of self-righteous twaddle Smith unleashed on this young lady, and then brag about how much holier the whole experience has made him. For that matter, Mayors Rahm Emanuel, Thomas Menino, and Edwin Lee are bullies, too, as are the myriad homosexual alliances that threaten same-sex “kiss-ins” at Chick-fil-A restaurants. Sally Quinn, the Washington Post’s religion columnist, advises homosexuals to
Make the restaurants the gay hangouts of the community. Gay partners and Married gays could begin taking their children there. They could start having birthday parties for their kids. They could have Gay pride events there. (They have an events manager – just call) They could even have gay weddings there.In other words, apply the same bullying tactics Marlon Brando and his fellow biker used to take over the cafe in The Wild One.
Face it: America is weak on homosexuality these days. That’s the result of 300 million people being intimidated into silence by a few thousand homosexual activists who’ve usurped the moral high ground with their threats to slander all opponents with horrible labels like “bigot” and “homophobe.” The truth is that most Americans still don’t view homosexual relationships as normal – and never will. Most Americans, even liberals in their few unguarded moments, view the homosexual life as tragic at worst, and at best, humorous – but not normal. It isn’t possible to make it normal, and one doesn’t need to be a Bible student to see that.
The steady drumbeat in the media, the arts, and in leftist politics that there is a growing national consensus in favor of homosexual normalcy and queer marriage is only a reflection of how effectively the silence of opposing voices is being enforced. It’s true Americans express increasing support for gay marriage. But that support has the stiff and forced quality of those terrified townsfolk forced to look favorably on every mean trick Billy Mumy could come up with in the Twilight Zone’s “It’s a Good Life,” out of fear at being wished away into the cornfield.
Fortunately, Americans still dislike bullies, which explains the success of “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” on Wednesday. Some commentators said it wasn’t about opposition to gay marriage, it was about free speech, or freedom of religion, or some such. I don’t think that’s quite it, either. It was about Americans being sick and tired of a handful of vocal homosexuals and their Democrat enablers daring to lay down the law for the rest of the nation about what we are and aren’t allowed to think.
As for Adam Smith, he should take Quinn’s advice and apply for work at Chick-fil-A.
AUGUST 5, 2012 UPDATE: A video has surfaced depicting a mob of homosexual bullies at Friday’s Love and Tolerance Kiss-In at a Chicago Chick-fil-A, harassing a black man reading his Bible . The hero in the plaid shirt admits he hates God. Now if he'll just admit he hates his father, too.
