Historically thinking here about this. A Stalinist commissar walked onto a kulaks farm, and announces that we are confiscating your crop. A Nazi mayor and police chief openly lets a jewish shop owner be terrorized and vandalized.
The citizen’s only recourse becomes an appeal to honest courts.
If this is denied, who would say that the Kulak or Jewish Shop owner is not completely within his rights to use violence against the oppressor? It might not be effective, and it is against Cathy’s christian philosophy. However, one cannot deny that seen through the lens of history, this politician is doing something that if it occurred in another nation or era, we would immediately agree that he deserves a violent response.
The only thing, is that i still think Cathy would instantly and easily prevail in a lawsuit. I hope he does sue. But the smart thing would probably be to take his stores to communities that welcome him, and go to Chicago and announce that the jobs and good food will not be available because of Moreno. And then totally fund a good opponent.
Good analysis, DR. It is not unbiblical to sue unbelievers, and Moreno is an obvious unbeliever. But I also like the response of leaving the state completely. There is already an existing CFA in Chicago, from what I understand. What a powerful statement it would make to not only refuse to open another store, but to close the existing one and leave with the potential tax money it would generate.
And as a symbolic biblical gesture, Dan Cathy could shakes some dust from his feet while he’s leaving.
“But the smart thing would probably be to take his stores to communities that welcome him, and go to Chicago and announce that the jobs and good food will not be available because of Moreno. And then totally fund a good opponent.”
Agreed. I’m not familiar with the Chicago area but I think Cathy should put a CFA or CFAs as close as possible to this aldermans’ district but not in the actual district itself.
