Chick-fil-A Day

A Fox newsman referred to the efforts of many citizens across the USA to show their support of Chick-fil-A as a “Day of Intolerance.” Isn’t it interesting that whenever anyone actually speaks of their belief in the Bible or in Christian Values they are labeled as intolerant? But the people busy screaming at them are not intolerant themselves?

If ever there was a double standard in this country (and there have been more than a few) this is clearly one of them. When did disagreeing with the choices or belief of another person become intolerance?

My grandfather taught me that freedom is like the ability to swing your arms if you want to – as long as you aren’t interfering with another person or stopping them from doing the same. What gives you the right to tell me what I can believe?

And what makes you think you have the right to censor me for my belief?

The definition for ‘liberal’ appears to be someone one demands their rights while not only denying mine, but scoffing at the thought that I might have any.

Today’s liberal media fits very well into a term used in the past. Read about “yellow journalism” here on Wikipedia. Check out this cartoon from 1888:

It was appropriately titled “The Evil Spirits of the Modern Day Press”.

    We love Chick-Fil=A

    We do too. My grandson Sam would rather go there than any of the other “fast food” places.

    Does anyone know where to get a high resolution image? I want to make a poster of this – it is absolutely brilliant!

  4. C says:

    Not sure that a high res image exists, due to the age and source of this 1888 Puck Magazine cartoon. These early lithograph images were of a quality & type considerably below even newsprint images used today. I would recommend you do some searching around. The one I turned up is: http://apus-b.wikispaces.com/gilded+age+political+cartoons

    Hope that helps, and thanks for the comment.
