Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum would have been a great Republican Presidential ticket.

I AM JOKING… First of all, I would never vote for someone who believes literally in Genesis which includes Dinosaurs and Man walking around together on Earth at the same time…. Call me crazy if you want 🙂

….anyway

I am sure you have heard the recent uproar about “same sex marriage and Chick-fil-A restaurants. Fast Food Company President Dan Cathy’s is being celebrated and condemned for recent remarks that his company supports “the biblical definition of the family unit”.

Since when did Fast Food and Religious zealousness marry?

Huckabee jumped into the discussion with this public comment stating that he is tired of seeing this “vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry” aimed at Chick-fil-A.

His Facebook pages stated this:

The goal is simple: Let’s affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1. Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we’re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant”.

Huckabee’s message is valid up to a point. I mean I get where he is coming from.  Still, I feel Dan Cathy should stick to slinging chicken sliders and probably should not be weighing in on social-political ideals. Anyway, why would you black ball customers? That is not good business. Are gays not good enough for your heart clogging fat and cholesterol? Christian values are great until the pendulums swings into vertical platform virtues and ridiculous dogma that threatens people’s rights.

I think there should be a separation of church and chicken nuggets…  well, I take that back… unless you can see the face of Jesus Christ on the side of a Chick-fil-A sandwich. That would be a whole different deal… You know what is weird? I have never eaten at a Chick-fil-A restaurant and despite being hetrosexual I am pretty sure I am not going to dine there on August 1st.

I have been hearing a lot about “Same Sex Marriage” recently both in the news and in the lunch room at work. Obama made his stand and I congratulate him; so did North Carolina and I cringe as the nation watches that state quickly back slide in human progress and social evolution.  I even heard someone argue that Obama is not a real Christian because he supports gay marriage.  Really?

How about this – Obama’s tweet about supporting same-sex marriage broke a “Retweet” record on Twitter.

I try to stay out of this controversial stuff when possible….

wait….

No, that is a lie….

Actually, I am kind of pissed off. First, get God and Religion out of our politics. Religion has led to so much persecution and the erosion of human rights that it makes my head spin.  When you look back on 2000 years of history, I truly question whether or not organized religion has truly benefited mankind. Further, who are Christians to say what is right or morally wrong when it comes to people’s civil rights? Quit being so god damn egotistical with your religion. There are plenty of paths to god and it is not up to you to choose the fate of other people’s lives. With divorce rates at nearly 50% in America, worry about your own marriage.

If Ellen DeGeneres wants to remarry Portia de Rossi in North Carolina then the more to them. I just don’t care!

What I do care about is people being able to embrace their spirituality, True Nature and bliss without persecution, commendation and suffering. We all have more in common that you know. We should start living with the common purpose to be happy and work to form a mutually beneficial society that exhibits support, compassion and understanding.

I apologize if I hurt anyones feelings. That was not the point. The point is that we all need to be a little more mindful of the big picture; that we are all people with different needs, wants and desires with the same goal of finding happiness in a world of indifference.
