Founding values attacked

Columnist Walter Williams was right on the money in his article on society’s “progress.” Today’s liberal media and society’s more vocal members value free speech only insofar as they agree with the speech being made.

Christian values, whenever they are expressed, are subject to ridicule, as displayed against Tim Tebow, or outright attack, as in the case of Chick-fil-A’s Dan Cathy.

If one person is allowed to express his support for gay marriage, another person should be allowed the same right to express his opposition to it.

I, like Dr. Williams, remember school days where your biggest fear was that a teacher or another parent would tell your parents of any trouble you may have gotten into. Today if parents hear of any trouble their child may have caused, the parents are more likely to come to the child’s defense, if not take legal action against the teacher or school. Bad behavior is more likely to be celebrated than condemned.

Hopefully the recent support shown for Chick-fil-A will set a positive example to other corporations so they will allow employees to wish customers “Merry Christmas” once again.

While diversity is fine, it is not necessary to marginalize the Christian majority. We need to get back to the Christian values this great nation was founded on.
