“We find the remarks made by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy to be repugnant and un-American,” writes Quinn in a petition she put up on Change.org. “In New York City, we stand up against intolerance and homophobia. We demand the Chick-fil-A executive apologize and change his position.”
Think about that for just a minute: “we demand the Chick-fil-A executive change his position”! This position – opposition to gay marriage – was the position held by the President of the United States less than six months ago. Now it will not be tolerated at all, and its expression calls for a public confession of error?
Councilman Christine Quinn is not just your run-of-the-mill lesbo whack job from New York City, she is widely expected to win the upcoming mayoral race and will be running the city next year. Will she shut down all stores operated by orthodox Jews, who consider homosexuality to be “an abomination”? Will she close the local falafel stands, run by muslims who consider homosexuality to be not only a sin but worse, a crime? Whose religion demands that homosexuals receive a “harsh beating” the first time they are caught in flagrante delicto and executed the second?
Perhaps she will, in which case we should see some fascinating law suits occupying her Honor’s time during the next few years. My guess, however, is that she will not – in NYC, only conservative Christians are politically powerless.
Sad to see, by the way, that the little brainwashed children who attend NYU have joined Quinn in her assault on free speech.
