It’s About Free Speech, NOT Hatred
What he said….again, I agree with this!
There was a picture posted yesterday of a guy wearing a shirt with his opinion of Jesus. I can’t even post it here it was THAT vulgar. Hmm…pretty sure I didn’t see ONE picture of the thousands of people that went to Chick fil A with ANY sign of hatred toward ANYBODY!

Glenn opened the monologue by making it very clear that this controversy is not about gay marriage or intolerance, explaining that he doesn’t want to surround himself with anyone who would hate another person if they were gay.
“This is not about homosexuality. This is about the First Amendment. It’s the right to speak your mind on a controversial subject, especially in a respectful way, and still continue to be able to maintain your livelihood,” Glenn explained.
“Tolerance does not put people out of business. To speak up without fear of prosecution or persecution or ruin. You should be able to speak your mind. That’s why hundreds of thousands of Americans, just everyday Americans, stood up,” he said.
“We have said nothing for too long. Meanwhile the actual hatred and bigotry coming from the other side has been nothing short of shocking. The viciousness of the tweets about those going to Chick‑fil‑A yesterday, wishing death and disease on the participants. It’s yet another wake‑up call, America.”
“There’s no difference between those people that were tweeting those things and the Westboro Baptist Church. There’s no difference. From the ‘God hates fags’ and the ‘God hates the Chick‑fil‑A’ people. There’s no difference. It’s the same hatred, just a different cause, a different mask. A different side.”
“Hatred has many facets. As does tolerance. Most of us have finally realized that respect and tolerance are not the goals with most of these people. Because tolerance for the most part has already been achieved. It’s been achieved over generations of people struggling just to say “I am a man.” Most of our children don’t hate black people, don’t hate white people. Most of our children don’t hate homosexuals, don’t hate straight people. They don’t hate people. Most of our children are not filled with hate. If we have a problem with our children, it’s not that they hate. It’s that they don’t care.”
I still think it would have been cool if all of those that went to Chick fil A had fed a hungry person….THAT, my friends, would have made an even BIGGER impact.
