Yes, each hourly worker at Chick-Fil-A deserves what he gets. After all, it is their responsibility to investigate and vet each level of management in the restaurant chain to ensure these folks are not only not silent on important matters, but that they have active, participatory policies.
There is only one politically correct view and you shall have it. We all agree about this.
Like agreeing Cisco was right to fire Frank Turek, an outside consultant who had been providing stellar service and who never, not once, discussed religion or politics or morality on the job. Thank Obama that a Cisco manager searched for Turek and discovered his web page on which was the horrible evidence that Turek supported traditional marriage.
The manager rightly squealed about Turek’s views to Cisco’s HR department which then “commended the manager for ‘outing’ Turek.” There are some things—it says so right in the Tolerance Handbook—that cannot be tolerated. If you want to work for Cisco, you must believe.
Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, whose heart is large, doesn’t believe in punishment for unbelievers, but in rehabilitation. He would reeducate the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, whose owners mistakenly support traditional marriage, instead of shutting them down. Of course, rehabilitation is the goal but the stubbornly recalcitrant must be shuttered.
There’s more than one way to stop the flow of money to unbelievers. The New York Times suggests pressuring credit card companies to cease processing donations to “anti-gay”, i.e. pro-traditional marriage, groups, donations which are now “allowed.”
Dr. Norman Spack of Children’s Hospital in Boston has a better idea. Get ‘em when they’re wrong. Spack is the “champion” of the procedure for children “designed to halt their development as males or females and, ultimately, completely change the sex of their birth.” Spack thinks the “transgendered” have “differences in their brains that render them, literally, of the wrong sex.”
Once a child is brought to Spack’s Gender Management Service Clinic, he begins by injecting them “puberty-blocking drugs.” But he notes that his drug works “best at the beginning of the pubital process, typically age 10 to 12 for a girl and 12 to 14 for a boy.” Don’t delay getting your kid an appointment. Spack is very popular.
Is Spack a German name? We wonder because it is Germany which leads the field against the tyranny of biology. Germany “is set to become the first country in Europe to introduce a third, “indeterminate” gender designation on birth certificates.” This allows “those born with characteristics of both sexes to choose whether to become male or female in later life.”
Actually it was Australia, believe it or not, the once home of the manliest men and womanliest women, which introduced the idea that “individuals can select the third category irrespective of whether or not they have undergone sex reassignment surgery or hormone therapy.” This shows that progress can come from any direction.
Like from Scotland, where children will quite rightly be indoctrinated to having proper views on marriage. DVDs “promoting same-sex pairs” are being provided “in direct response to the overwhelming requests from schools and teachers to help them teach and celebrate the reality of what different families in modern Scotland look like.” Parents who don’t wish their kiddies to learn what’s best are, as is only right, out of luck.
And there are bright lights even from such places as New Jersey. “Gov. Chris Christie plans to sign a bill Monday barring licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight, making New Jersey the second state to ban so-called conversion therapy, along with California.” Christie is wise to do this quickly before he faces the inevitable questions about the “B” in LGBT and from testimony of those who have undergone these kinds of therapy successfully. These would only muddy the waters.
Whatever we do, keep people from reading things like this:
Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three; a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
