The LGBT and The Left’s Practice of Punishing Those They Don’t Agree With.

 

 

Each day brings new evidence of the left’s hatred for Christians and other traditionalists, but the smear campaign against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A sets a new low.

The Atlanta-based, 1,600-restaurant chain, famous for its misspelling-prone cows that urge consumers to “eat mor chikin,” is under a full-scale fascistic assault, complete with obscene celebrity tweets and government bullying.

Acting more like Benito Mussolini than Paul Revere, Boston MayorThomas M. Menino said he will block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in his city. Chicago Alderman Proco Joe Moreno said he will stop Chick-fil-A from building its second Chicago store. In Philadelphia, Councilman James F. Kenney sent a letter to Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy advising his company to “take a hike and take your intolerance with you.” Meanwhile, the Jim Henson Co., owner of the Muppets, has canceled a deal to provide toys for Chick-fil-A kids’ meals. This is just the beginning.

What has the dastardly company done? Chick-fil-A’s management, while not political, is an unapologetic defender of traditional values. Like the Boy Scouts, the company has enraged liberals who are at war with nature and nature’s God.

This isn’t the first time Chick-fil-A has been singled out. In February 2011, homosexual activists launched an unsuccessful boycott when they found out that the company donated food to the Pennsylvania Family Institute’s marriage retreat. Seriously, it doesn’t take much to tick them off.

The current hysteria began after Mr. Cathy, son of the chain’s founder, gave an interview that ran in the Baptist Press on July 16. Mr. Cathynoted that Chick-fil-A’s management is “based on biblical principles, asking God and pleading with God to give us wisdom on decisions we make about people and the programs and partnerships we have. And He has blessed us.” When asked about the company’s positions in support of marriage and family, Mr. Cathy went on to say, “Well, guilty as charged. We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.”

This was too juicy to ignore. CNN ran a July 19 religion blog post that read, “Chick-fil-A’s marriage stance causing a social storm.” Casually striking a match while pouring the gasoline, writer Brad Lendon wrote that “the comments of company President Dan Cathy about gay marriage to Baptist Press on Monday have ignited a social media wildfire.”

It doesn’t matter that Mr. Cathy never brought up “gay marriage,” as noted by the Weekly Standard’s Mark Hemingway. All Mr. Cathy did was defend the company’s stance that families are paramount and that the company supports the family unit “in its biblical definition.”

That’s what marriage laws do, too — they define the institution. It’s no accident that the media routinely describe marriage laws as “gay marriage bans,” as if marriage didn’t exist until recently, when it was invented solely to vex homosexuals. You think I’m joking? That’s what openly homosexual U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker essentially said in his bizarre ruling striking down California’s voter-approved constitutional marriage amendment.

This madness has gone so far that simply defending marriage is enough to get you banned in Boston. There may be room, however, for a legal challenge, as University of California-Los Angeles law professor Eugene Volokh notes: “Denying a private business permits because of such speech by its owner is a blatant First Amendment violation. Even when it comes to government contracting — where the government is choosing how to spend government money — the government generally may not discriminate based on the contractor’s speech, see Board of County Commissioners v. Umbehr (1996).”

Perhaps the American Civil Liberties Union will step forward to represent Chick-fil-A. Perhaps the Chicago River will freeze in August.

Comic and Green Party favorite Roseanne Barr joined the Chick-fil-A bashing on Wednesday, tweeting, “anyone who eats [expletive]-Fil-A deserves to get the cancer that is sure to come from eating antibiotic filled tortured chickens 4Christ.”

As reported by the Media Research Center’s Newsbusters, she sent another obscene Christian-themed tweet that I won’t repeat, followed by this sarcastic offering: “Off to grab a [expletive]-fil-A sandwich on my way to worshipping Christ, supporting Aipac and war in Iran.” (AIPAC stands for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.)

On July 25, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank accused Mike Huckabee of pushing “obesity” because Mr. Huckabee has called for people who honor “godly values” to fight back by eating at Chick-fil-A on Aug. 1. Mr. Huckabee’s “defense of the fast-food restaurant will make Chick-fil-A a fat target in the culture wars and will further divide Americans,” Mr. Milbank asserted.

I have grown so tired of Liberals, Gays, Lesbians, transgenders, the same sex marriage crowd, etc. and before you start in on what a bigot I am, let me remind you about a little thing called Free Speech. It seems like members, not all but many of the aforementioned groups have this idea that you have to agree with their way of life. This is total and utter Bull Shit! I not anybody has to accept you nor you I but let me tell you something. Grow the hell up! This is the United States of America. I don’t like the fact that you attack anybody who speaks out against your way of life. But you know what, I as well don’t seek to run your businesses out of town or support blocking them from setting up business in my town. Don’t expect to be coddled and don’t believe for a minute that punishing people because you don’t like what they say is acceptable in this country. Chick-Fil-A is a perfect example, you boycott them because they believe in a different way of life than you do. This is the issue you claim to want equality but what you really want is something far, far more. You are much like those people America has gone to war against. You would punish people because you don’t like the FACT they are honest. Would you clense the world of those who disagree with you? Would you rather be lied to? Perhaps it is time to grow up in America and quit moving through life thinking everybody is going to accept the choices you have made in life. Your actions are not what America is about.
