I predicted a few days ago that it would be hard to get a parking spot at Chick-fil-A today, thanks to Mike Huckabee’s summons to Pious folk to “eat more chikin” — but even I was taken aback.
Watch this video: There were 2-patrol cars there, presumably to control traffic and, one supposes, to protect the decent godly folk from any rampaging gays intent on mayhem.
Many of the people in those cars are, undoubtedly, the same people who went to the polls on Primary Day and cast no vote but on Amendment One, in order that those scary gays be kept in their place.
What makes this so heartbreakingly sad is that nearly all of them are agreeable people, and think they’re doing a good thing — and never mind that they couldn’t tell you in a million years who is harmed by same-sex relationships, or why they suppose themselves to have a right to put their hands on their neighbors’ life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
Neither of those questions ever occurs to them. The ‘Good Book’ says gays are wicked and ought to be put to death, and more than a few of these poor sad simpletons think they’re being generous by not carrying-out that death sentence.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true,
by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.
These scared, unthinking boobs are used by such as Huckabee, invited to believe they’re extra-special-virtuous, and in fact they do harm while empowering the very cynics who are devouring them. Ol’ Mencken surely did know what he was up to when he coined the neologism booboisie.
