Chicken Sandwiches and Moral Eclipse

Be Thou at Peace, S. Truett Cathy  •  I suppose that having no intimate firsthand knowledge of the manifold virtues of sodomy, nor a desire for its normalization, would disqualify me, at least in the jaded opinions of Progressives, from commenting on the Chick-Fil-A Wars. Future text books will magnify the scope of LGBT heroics, and these advocates stand to go down in history amongst the ranks of partisans of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising or America’s Freedom Riders. I should not be amazed that the Left, in its perennial jihad to colonize the mind and wipe from historical memory the remnant of any distinctions of moral architecture, has chosen a devout Christian, whose business happens to provide tasty chicken sandwiches, to put the proverbial screws to for their hackneyed version of a 21st century thought crime.[pullquote]We have always known that the Left, emboldened by their animating adage: “The personal is the political,” would bare their long knives and come for us one day.[/pullquote]

It is not enough anymore to provide a wholesome product and work environment, to say nothing of the many jobs that the late Mr. Cathy added to America’s economy. One is no longer free to voice traditional beliefs culled from that ancient faith that dare not speak its name. S. Truett Cathy’s legacy will mirror the schism of this fractured time. He will be admired and loathed by people who knew nothing of the immense personal good he administered by virtue of his fortune. A vague rumor of political “bad-speak” will be sufficient enough for his haters. For a sickened era that views the lives of good men through the meat-grinder prism of the popular rage, private virtues must proceed through the gauntlet of orthodoxy, and those who lie outside the standard deviation must be harangued back into the fold or summarily destroyed by any means necessary.

We have always known that the Left, emboldened by their animating adage: “The personal is the political,” would bare their long knives and come for us one day. One cannot construct a gleaming Humanist Citadel on the foundations of “impure” thoughts — even if such “indecent” speech is backed up by the precepts of nature, wisdom, and the moral pillars that proceed from the Western heritage of both reason and revelation.

As Right Reason and moral illumination phase into eclipse, and the private and public counsels of men are weighed and excoriated by Lilliputian sensibilities who will brook no dissention of edicts arising from their insular auto-da-fe,’ remember well the stand you took against the sensual barbarism of our crooked age. Bewitched minds have upended the moral poles: pronouncing good as evil while they position the toleration of depravity as the foremost commandment heading their post-modern catalogue of anti-virtues. An amalgamation of terminally confused consciences now toil tirelessly in the darkness, so that an opaque curtain of homogeneity will shroud the wanton deeds of Sodom Rising; so that their despicable works will not stand out as deficient in the West’s dark and rolling sea of drowning men.

    I had never eaten at Chick-Fil-A until the liberal boycott. One suggestion I saw at the time was that Romney should offer up some of their sandwiches at a lunch — with some Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for dessert, to develop the point that conservatives, unlike liberals, are tolerant of differing political viewpoints. Unfortunately, if virulent liberals succeed in making the boycott an effective weapon to intimidate businesses on a routine basis, we will have no good choice but counter-boycotts. But we should remember which group is larger, and never surrender or allow their intimidation campaigns to coerce businesses we like to surrender.

    Glenn,

    Great article!

    The left’s crusade to silence Christians and Conservatives is both frightening and infuriating, and very real. And so far in many instances very successful.

    William A. Jacobson has a pertinent article along these lines in the Washington Times.
    The article begins as follows:

    “For years, there has been a multipronged attempt to drive conservative speech from the public square.

    “These prongs include misuse of government powers to target conservatives, attempts to keep conservative voices from being heard on mass-media outlets, and redefinition of language in order to taint conservative speech as unacceptable.”
    http://nation.foxnews.com/2014/09/07/washington-times-campaign-silence-conservative-speech

    Jacobson’s article primarily focuses on governmental efforts, whereas I believe an even greater danger is from the political-correctness efforts driven by the left in both academia and the media. We are now at a point where it seems to take so little real-effort from the left to shut-down dissent from anyone who does not completely buy-into or completely surrender to their must-not-be-challenged agenda.

    As Glen so well states it:

    “He [S. Truett Cathy] will be admired and loathed by people who knew nothing of the immense personal good he administered by virtue of his fortune. A vague rumor of political “bad-speak” will be sufficient enough for his haters.”

    It is not enough to simple rebut lies and falsehoods with truth and facts, we have to battle against “vague rumors” and political “bad-speak.”

    This is a precise illustration, IMO, of the evil spoken about in Ephesians 6:12.

    “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.” —Ephesians 6:12 NET

    I do not have a defeatist attitude in this spiritual struggle because scripture does not tell us that we, in our own strength, have to “win”. Scripture tells us quite plainly that our duty is “to stand.” We must not, we absolutely must NOT cut-and-run.

    “For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand. Stand firm therefore, by fastening the belt of truth around your waist, by putting on the breastplate of righteousness,” —Ephesians 6:13-14 NET

    Glen, I am unashamed to praise you and to pray for you, because I can see that you have decided “to stand.” Bless you.

      The quasi-non-government efforts by liberal activists are in many ways the most serious threat, because they enable some libertarian types (such as John Stossel) to defend their legitimacy as “the market worked”. It’s easier to see the danger when Barry’s Behemoth tries to crush dissent.

  3. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    It’s heartening to see people come out and support Chick-Fil-A. But unless anyone is actually interested in pushing back against homosexuality, then it’s simply a last hurrah.

    Are you willing to:

    + Put homosexuality back in the closet by stigmatizing it, calling it a perversion, a disorder in need of straightening out?
    + Not just feign a nice multi-cult “tolerance” but speak out against what you think is a lifestyle that is destructive and wrong?
    + Actively discriminate against those who are openly gay?

    If not, then all of these words and Chick-Fil-A binges mean nothing. You have already ceded the war. The only alternative then is that gender means nothing. You have to live with Facebook’s bizarre 56 official options, perhaps ridiculing it from time to time in order to make yourself feel better.

    The reality is that this Genie is out of the butt plug, and I don’t think there’s any putting it back.

    Who was that CEO that got forced out for the sin of giving $2000 to withstand queer-marriage?
