Monday Top Ten

First of all, I'm sorry I didn't post Friday or Saturday.  Friday, I was out too late watching a movie at a friend's.  Saturday, I was helping my good friend with his race car and didn't get in until an obscenely late hour.  Just a heads up, Cook Out is an awesome place to eat.  They have Cheerwine.  Speaking of restaurants, my top ten is pretty much about the controversy of Chick-Fil-A.  I give you all, the top ten things I learned from the Chick-Fil-A controversy.

10.  People are stupid
Hello, McFly
I got this from a 15 year old that goes to my church.  It sums up the silliness that some people have.  The absolute outrage from what was said by Dan Cathy is hilarious.  I wasn't really necessary either. It just seems like our country is just looking for a reason to protest.  On pretty much either side of the spectrum, I might add.

9.  The Cathys are raking in the cash
Last year, Chick-Fil-A raked in over four billion dollars last year.  I think they picked up that much alone last Wednesday.  So many people went there to support Chick-Fil-A and the values that Mr. Cathy and others hold true.

8.  Atheism is big
Atheists' number one weapon, clever memes
One thing I've noticed, at least on my Facebook page, is that the atheists really showed off their behinds when this whole thing went on.  This here picture was the rallying cry they used.  Truth be told, it's pretty ignorant of the Atheists to just tell Christians how to be Christians.  Jesus said to love God with everything and love our neighbor.  James said that true religion is caring for orphans and widows and being spotless from the world.  Atheists seems to want to call out Christians on their mistakes.  They should worry about their future, not our past.

7.  There are a lot of Christians
Couldn't help but notice that a lot of Christians showed up.  Some were there to show support for the Cathy family.  Others were there to show the homosexuals who's boss.  Some were there to eat chicken with several hundred of their closest friends.  Whatever their reasons, the point is there are a lot of Christians in America.  It's good to know that I'm not alone.

6.  There's a double standard in America
Homosexuals have begged and pleaded for the right to be understood, accepted, and treated with respect.  And truth be told, I am totally on their side when it comes to be given the certain rights granted to us by the Constitution and the Bible.  However when someone Christian wants those same rights to free speech and religion, it's automatically deemed intolerance.  It's really not fair.  No matter how peaceful that Christian is, they're deemed hateful.  Dan Cathy said nothing hateful, and he was automatically deemed to be some kind of intolerant, hateful ogre.  Maybe someone should learn that everyone has a right to an opinion and just as much a right to express it.

5.  I hate lines
I refused to eat there that day for one reason.  I won't wait in line too long for anything.  I love Chick-Fil-A.  I will continue to enjoy the good food and better milkshakes.  However, I refuse to wait in a mile long line.

4.  People listen to Mike Huckabee
This was all his idea.  He declared a Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day.  All he said was, "go to Chick-Fil-A and eat."  Amazing how many people just said, "okay."  Maybe he should run for President.  Seems to have more friends than Romney.

3.  I missed Obama's Birthday
Apparently, sometime over this week, it was the President's birthday.  Oh wow.

2.  I didn't hear much about the Kiss-In
Did anyone else?  I didn't think so.  You're not going to offend people who work in a restaurant by kissing.  In fact, I'd venture to say that there are a good bit of homosexuals that work at Chick-Fil-A.  I think they like getting guaranteed Sundays off.  Most people do.  Point being, trying to offend people on purpose is rarely a successful venture.

1.  This election year is going to be insane
Look, I have no ties to either party.  I don't like how the two main candidates have been behaving.  I don't like how other candidates are ignored because they're not in the two main parties.  There are some people who are truly have great ideas, but because they don't have an elephant or a donkey attached to them, they're dismissed.  Election day is going to be epic.  It's going to blow up all crazy like in November.  I think I'll write in my mom.  She's the most level headed person I know.
