So, I commented on a Facebook post giving what I thought was a rather insightful analysis of the difference between how the two opposing sides saw the Chick-Fil-A events yesterday. In particular, I talked about how each side was not communicating, because they did not seem to understand the other sides's concerns.
And I got jumped all over by someone who insisted….that no one could possibly believe what I said the opposition believes. And was rude about it.
Here's what I said;
"The other really weird thing–as someone who reads the posts of friends on both sides of the issue–is how convinced both sides are that the other side is motivated by hate. The pro-gay marriage side thinks they are standing up for equality and that the other side is motivated by bigotry. Those showing support for Chick-Fil-A, including some non-Christians who were offended by behavior of a couple of mayors, think that they are standing up for the First Amendment, and in the case of the Christians, for their fellow Christians, and they are convinced that those on the other side are motivated by hatred of Christianity–and not by concern for gays.
