Agreed, @MichaelRJoyce! And here's @DanCathy's 'different view' about gays and God's judgment #ChickFilADay

Well I can assure you that you're not telling anyone to shut up (and ironic thing for a supposed free speech to seek). But I do agree that people can hold different views, which is precisely why I've been so keen on showing American what, from my view, are the offensive suggestions in Dan Cathy's own views:

DAN CATHY, president and COO of Chick-fil-A:"It's very clear in Romans chapter 1, if we look at society today, we see all the twisted up kind of stuff that's going on. Washington trying to redefine the definition of marriage and all the other kinds of things that we go—if you go upstream from that, in Romans chapter 1, you will see that because we have not acknowledged God and because we have not thanked God, that we have been left victim to the foolishness of our own thoughts, and as result, we are suffering the consequences of a society and culture who has not acknowledged God or not thanked God—he's left us to a deprived mind. It's tragic and we live in a culture of that today.""

DAN CATHY: (1:05)"…I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say 'we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage' and I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about"

Please, by all means—disseminate this prominent American businessman's "different view" far and wide. I'd appreciate the help in cutting through Mike Huckabee's "protect marriage" noise!
