It doesn't really matter what I think about this situation. And I have no intention of pushing my views off on you. What I will say, as a teacher of the Constitution, is this: It is Dan Cathy's right to donate to whatever organizations he wants to donate to. He owns a business, and that business has given him the means to do as he pleases. If you, as a member of the public, disagree with that, you don't have to eat there. You don't have to shop at Hobby Lobby either. Or JC Penney or any other business whose values don't meet yours. And I will even say that it's your right to tell others of your opinions, if you want to. But, please, oh please, use a little decorum. Also, if this is your stance, you should look into the practices of every other business that you give money to and make sure they align with yours. (Wouldn't want to do anything halfway, right?) Oh, and mayors of various major cities: don't use this situation that has been blown out of proportion in the most ridiculous way, as a method of political gain.
What no one brandishing the flag of equal rights wants to say is that equal rights means everyone has rights under the law, whether you agree with their practice of those rights or not. What I wish is that people would get as outraged about things that really matter as they have about this situation. You want to really talk about donations and influence, let's look at where politicians get their campaign money. Let's get outraged about child trafficking or abuse. Let's talk about helping America's veterans. Let's stop worrying about where a guy who sells chicken gives his dollars and talk about something that actually makes a difference in the world. Please?
