In the era of political correctness it is wrong for people to fat shame others. It is wrong to shame people based on how sexually active they are and how many people they have been with. While the left and social justice warriors have been influential in trying to convince the rest of America that these things are wrong it is apparently acceptable to shame someone for where they choose to eat. Ten hours ago Fox News ran a headline titled “Twitter CEO shamed for eating at chick-fil-A over owners LGBT views expresses regret.” Fox news is just one of several news sources that are sharing this story with the American people.
The LGBTQ community were less than pleased with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey after he tweeted a screen shot of everything that he had bought from the food chain along with the savings that he made by using the fast food restaurants mobile app. Over the last six years Chick-fil-A has been a sore topic for the LGBTQ community due to Chick-fil-A’s CEO Dan Cathy defending the Christian views that are critical of same sex marriage.
Members of the media and the LGBTQ community have taken offense to Jack Dorsey choosing to eat at this establishment that supports Christian values during the month of June. For most atheist and Americans who have no problem turning their back on the Christian faith and everything that goes with it June is not just any other month. It is the one month of the year that is dedicated to celebrating pride in the LGBTQ community.
Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien was quick to jump on the bandwagon of people giving Jack Dorsey a hard time over where he chooses to eat. On the social media platform known as Twitter she tweeted, “This is an interesting company to boost during Pride month. Jack.”
This was Jack Dorsey’s chance to stand straight, push his shoulders back, put his chest out, and be a man as he stood against the criticism of those who support the LGBTQ community. While those who run twitter seem to have no problem showing that they have spine when they censor people like myself it would seem that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey lost his spine when he came under fire from the LGBTQ community. Dorsey was quick to apologize for giving Chick-fil-A his business as he claimed that he forgot about their background.
Journalist Jeryl Bier and at least one other person had the same response to his statement that I did. What background was he referring to? Jeryl Bier responded to his apology when they said, “’Background’ meaning they employ 41,000 people, many of whom are the most pleasant fast food employees in the country, serve delicious food at good prices, and at amazing speed? That background?”
Maybe he was referring to the fact that Chick-fil-A’s late CEO was a proud Christian before our Lord and Savior called him home. Apparently in the era of political correctness being a Christian is a bad thing. Those of us who have been saved and accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior are expected to value being liked and accepted more than we are supposed to value the principles of our Christian faith.
While Jack Dorsey failed miserably at being a man and standing by his decision to eat at Chick-fil-A when he came under backlash from the LGBTQ community one man who did not fail at being a man was Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy. In 2012 he must have known that it would not be a popular decision among a large group of Americans when he told the Baptist Press that the company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of the family unit.”
