Hatin’ the gays and eatin’ fried food. That’s what passes for patriotism for way too many Americans.
I’ve spent countless hours trying to understand anti-gay folks. I read articles, op-eds, websites and books. Again and again, it boils down to simple prejudice. They made up their minds in advance and aren’t interested in hearing what anyone has to say if it contradicts what they already think. They rain their money on preachers who confirm their prejucide by saying things like “Gay people are sinners (unlike you).” For these folks, last week’s Chick-Fil-A day was a combination July 4th, New Year’s Eve and Sunday service all in one. Folks on the left are far less sanguine.
