A private university in New Jersey just pulled Chick-fil-A off the menu for students, reported Fox News.
Apparently, the ‘values’ of the Chick-fil-A brand aren’t ‘inclusive’ enough and risk making LGBTQ students feel attacked or unwelcome. So naturally, in the ultra-PC world we live in, the restaurant chain is not welcome on campus.
People. It’s chicken.
If you don’t know about Chick-fil-A… go try it. It’s amazing. This restaurant chain started down South and has made its way across America. They’re always kind, and the food doesn’t disappoint. They also happen to be closed on Sundays.
Because it’s the Sabbath. A day of rest.
The founder of Chick-fil-A is a Christian. And because of this, the company’s mission is “to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.”
The core values of a business are exactly that…. values.
We at the Whiskey Patriots believe in God and country, but we sure as hell won’t ban others for not sharing our religious views. We believe in preserving the Second Amendment, but we’re not cutting ties with those who have never shot a gun before.
Here’s the danger of situations like this: The world is full of individuals. Each individual has their own beliefs, morals, thoughts, feelings, and so on. When we decide to cut something out of our lives because a small group doesn’t like it, we’re going to end up in a world with nothing. No free thought. No civil discourse. No friendly debate. We’re creating an echo chamber. And when someone lives in an echo chamber, they only dive deeper into their hate for things that they don’t agree with.
There has always been and will always be someone or something that we don’t agree with. We as humans have to learn to educate ourselves, adapt, and develop thick skin.
When everything is forced to be ‘inclusive’, everything that we know will eventually become excluded.
Let’s take our friend for example. We’ll call him Johnny.
Johnny doesn’t celebrate Christmas, because he’s Jewish. He happily celebrates Hanukkah with his family.
What doesn’t Johnny do?
Johnny doesn’t flip out about WalMart selling Christmas trees. Johnny is able to happily live his life with his own beliefs, customs and traditions, and somehow manages to go on without demanding the removal of Christian imagery.
Be like Johnny.
