Cathy opens floodgates



I disagree with the column entitled, “Kissing Pulpit.” Dan Cathy is a bigot. As a devout Christian, I can’t imagine donating funds from my business to non-profit groups which blatantly discriminate against homosexuals (or blacks, or Muslims, or Hispanics, or what have you.) However, as a civil libertarian, I also realize Cathy has the right to free speech. As does the Ku Klux Klan. As does the modern-day Nazi party. My problem with the opinion of your column is that homosexuals kissing in public is not a crime. By publicly discriminating against homosexuals, Cathy has opened the floodgates for this type of behavior in his restaurants. I wonder, if my wife and I engaged in a public display of affection at a Chick-fil-A restaurant, would anyone even notice – let alone care?
