Chicken Salad or Chicken Shit?

Rant Begins:

I can think of no better example of just how pathetic and debased American politics, religion and culture have become than this dust-up over Chick-Fil-A and gay marriage.  First, you have the ever-expanding whiny sense of victimhood that permeates our society:  if Christian conservatives call for the boycott of a corporation for SUPPORTING gay marriage, well, that’s just the Lord’s work.  But if liberals call for a boycott of a corporation for OPPOSING gay marriage, GOOD LORD ‘N’ BUTTER, it’s the Apocalypse!  The forces of Satan are reaching down to destroy the First Amendment!  Also, MOOSLIMS!!!!  Second, it says so much about the current rotten state of the Institutional Church in America that the only way people will publicly affirm their faith is by STANDING IN LINE TO BUY JUNK FOOD.  Consumerism and Christianity, formerly the twin pillars of our national culture, merge into one giant greasy glob.  Notice, we have Christians standing in line NOT to buy food for hungry people (something Jesus actually told us to do); nooooooo, they are buying junk food so that the rich man who owns the junk food company will have more money to donate to organizations that oppose gay marriage (I’ll let you comb through your New Testament to see how much Jesus had to say on the topic of homosexuals, much less homosexuals getting married).  Third, you have politicians (David Dewhurst) and political grifters (Sarah Palin) falling all over themselves to cash in on the trend because God (literally!) forbid we maintain even the slightest amount of dignity, restraint or maturity in our leaders.  Fourth, what’s the best response the pro-marriage equality people can come up with? A kiss-in!  Seriously?  That’s it?  That’s the very best idea y’all could come up with?  What, precisely, are you going to accomplish with this?  How many hearts and minds will you change?  Better idea, and this is free from me to you, go back to using those ‘gay money’ stamps.  Demonstrate your power in the marketplace.  Or push ahead with your boycott.  Trust me, ground up chicken parts aren’t going to stop gay marriage and kissing isn’t going to bring it.

Rant ends.
