It's all over FB. Countless articles in newspapers and online editorials over Chick-Fil-A. I've read some really good ones and some disturbing ones - in my opinion. And that is all it really is...An opinion. Our country has lost the art of practicing polite disagreement. We'll say anything with an expletive added to it for emphasis as if it makes our point more valid. We'll call names rather than exchange ideas. We judge one another and declare the other a hater if they think differently than we do. Free speech only applies if you agree with me.
In my opinion, Chick-Fil-A should be welcomed in Boston just as much as Starbucks is. If you don't like how their owners legally spend their profit, then show your disagreement as a consumer. Using the government or legislation as retaliation for a citizen legally supporting his beliefs doesn't make us the land of the free. It makes us the Semi-United Censure of America. We, the people, can do better than that. In my opinion.
