Gloucester, VA - Chick-Fil-A A National Divide

Pictured here is local Chick-Fil-A owner John Gordon III and congressman Rob Wittman during the Grand Opening ceremonies for the Gloucester, VA location.

  Monday August 1st, the local Chick-Fil-A restaurant was jam packed with people in support of the chain, based on the franchise founder''s statements of believing in the traditional  marriages with a national interpretation of being against gay marriage.

  Our staff insisted I write a piece on the debate.  I have a lot of issues surrounding the whole thing.  I have no issues with Chick-Fil-A and it's support of traditional marriage.  This nation was founded on Christian principles and to quote John Adams, "Will support no other."  I have no issues with gay relationships.  It is not my place to make those life decisions for others.  Do I support gay marriage?  No.  Do I oppose gay marriage?  Yes, but not for the reasons that one would normally consider.

  There is nothing new under the sun.  One must study history to see if we are about to make some major serious mistakes.  Rome was destroyed from within over reasons just like this.  Gay marriage is extra privileges above and beyond what is and has been a part of normal society.  It is granting additional rights to a class of citizens that are in a minority.  I have no issues with gay rights.  No one should be harmed based on their opinions or lifestyle choices as long as it is mutually consensual and not forced on the masses.

    The issues of gay marriage are nothing more than the division of the masses of people.  No different than the abortion issues, democrats verses republicans, left verses right, and whatever other issues the mass media wants to play on us all.  It's revolting to me that people are so easily caught up in all of these issues and told how and what to think, keeping a nation always divided.

  Here is an interesting issue to consider.  In one state it was a recent headline piece that a gay couple who filed for divorce could not get one.  Reason?  There were no laws on the books of the state that allowed people brought together in a gay marriage to get a divorce.

  Another area I have a real problem with is the constant bashing of Christians.  Again, this nation was founded on Christian principles and we all see the constant attack to destroy traditional Christian values.  The local churches do a good enough job of that themselves without any outside help.  The state of our nation is because of the destruction of what was once our core values.  Ask any young adult about history and you are likely to get a blank stare or a very strange interpretation of what they think history has taught them.

  Buffy the Vampire Slayer is not an educational tool for colleges to be teaching.  Keep the people confused and divided is more of the story piece.  Not who is right or wrong.  Anyone who disagrees with my own opinion about gay marriage?  I respect their right to disagree.  It's called freedom of speech.  The only two religions I am aware of that has ever supported gay marriage is the Satanic religion and also fairly recently, Wicca.   If you want to get married into a gay marriage, please join one of the two and do not ask traditional Christian religions to accept you when it is against the Christian code.  Know your history and you won't have these issues.  Gays just need to join Wicca in order to get married and leave everyone else out of it.  The other choice?  Become a Satanist.
