Freedom to stand for what you believe

The Chick Fil A thing was crazy. Not a major fan of Mike Huckabee---I totally agreed with his Chick Fil A day. It had nothing to do with gay or not gay loving. It had EVERYTHING to do with the freedom of this owner to express his beliefs. Our country has lost sight of the idea that there are differing opinions on things. People are ALLOWED to come to their own conclusions.

His opinion was on gay marriage and is widely held. There is nothing discriminatory about that opinion- even a "gay" employee spoke out. Which means that there ARE gay employees at the stores. Just because his opinion might not be my opinion- does not mean he should not be allowed to express it.

Amen!!! I do agree with Mr. Cathy on marriage but more importantly is all of our rights to freedom!!!! The lines in our area were crazy LONG, so glad others still have faith that this country is still home of the free

You're right about our right to speak our mind. Respectfully is even better.

I agree as well, even as I'm solidly on the other side of this debate. We are entitled to disagree, but we can't stomp on someone else's right to do same in the process.
