A Dallas police sergeant has been exiled to the graveyard shift, after a quarrel with lesbian officers over Chick-fil-A.
The sergeant purchased a sandwich at the poultry eatery Aug. 1, which also happened to be the company's "Appreciation Day." But, when he brought the sandwich to work, he was accosted by two lesbian co-workers, who took issue with CEO Dan Cathy's opposition to gay marriage.
Cathy, when asked his opinion on the issue, said he believed in the "Biblical" definition of marriage between a man and woman. Consequently, the gay lobby erupted with typical outrage, and threatened to boycott the popular Chick-fil-A restaurants.
There are two sides to every story, and this one is no different. But, this sounds like a classic case of political correctness. The Dallas police had no right to punish the sergeant, while the two female officers skated. It takes two to tango, as they say.
What did the man do wrong? Is eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich against department regulations? The city needs to appoint an outside party to investigate this matter. And, if the sergeant was punished for simply expressing his opinion, he should hire a lawyer and file a major lawsuit.
