If you hang around the internet, blogs, or Facebook you’ve probably heard about the Chick-fil-A controversy. I didn’t post on it, but I did have a bit of a discussion with some friends on Facebook when Facebook pulled down references to Mike Huckabee’s “support Chick-fil-A” day. According to Facebook, the event was getting so many “likes” it triggered the spam filters and was taken down. I commented at the time that it made me nervous when a large information sharing company like Facebook seemed to act as thought police. It still makes me nervous.
With that said, this pastor has some good thoughts on boycotts and controversies.
“People who tell you to fear are trying to control you.”
Do not be afraid.
