~ Dan Cathy, Chick-Fil-A President
There is some fist shaking going on here, but I think it is being done by Dan Cathy at the American people. Frustrated and angry at the loss of ground folks like him are experiencing in the culture, he projects his own emotions and motivations on to others.
Understand that the arrogance is yours Mr. Cathy. You assume everyone is shaking their fist at your god in defiance. This is arrogant presumption.
First, there are plenty of people who call upon your god who are not in agreement with you. It seems rather arrogant that you have chosen to speak for them.
Second, one would first need to believe in your god to be in defiance. You are arrogant to give them such a motivation, when in fact their opinion on gay marriage has nothing to do with your god. They no more care for the opinion you have attributed to an unseen, unheard deity; than you would stake the future of your company on this morning's horoscope.
In truth, you are upset that this generation is convinced that it knows "better than YOU as to what constitutes a marriage." This has nothing to do with your god.... your pride has been hurt. You are shaking your fist at a generation that has learned to ignore voices like yours.
