For those who have been living in a cave or the dark side of the Moon for the past month or so, we had a flap centered on Chick-fil-a.
Then, a particular man (at least by some definition) made a cell phone video of himself haranguing a Chick-fil-a employee at the drive through window AFTER taking a ‘free cup of water’ from her. This individual took exception to the CEO of Chick-fil-a being in favor of traditional marriage. Instead of writing to the CEO, or attempting to make an appointment to air his grievance in person, this individual took the rather cowardly route of driving through a Chick-fil-a order window and being needlessly offensive to a rather pleasant young woman. In other words, he bullied her.
Then, in a fit of narcissistic (I always have to use spell check to get that word right) fervor, he posted the video – under an assumed name on the internet. He then pulled the video off the internet, but too late. He was recognized.
His employer, in fact, recognized him. He has been terminated from his last employment. See http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/08/03/viral-video-man-picking-on-chick-fil-worker-gets-him-fired/ for details.
I’m somewhat sorry the man lost his job. I feel for those who let their baser instincts get the better of their intellect. At the same time, I would not employ a man who is so emotional that he bullies people who cannot fight back and then proclaims he feels he has done something worthwhile – which he did say in the video he made. Such a man is not reliable nor dependable. He’s a loose cannon, figuratively speaking. Literally, he’s a loose mouth. I do not want such a man working for me, representing my company (if I had a company); not even if he were ‘on my side’. There are proper ways to express one’s opinion, and one’s disapproval of the actions and positions of others.
All throughout this flap, I’ve heard heard accusations of “hateful” Christians opposing ‘gay marriage’. Truth to tell, this man is the most hateful person I’ve heard so far.
If you have information about a hateful Christian, please present it and I’ll publish it.
