Chick-fil-A is a nice restaurant that serves quality food at a decent price. I absolutely love the waffle fries! It’s a family owned Christian business. Now you’d never know that, except for the fact all Chick-fil-As are closed on Sundays.The staff is hard working and courteous, but they serve food, not scripture at Chick-Fil-A. It’s simply a highly successful business, run by using time honored principles that have their roots in the Holy Bible. A good number of businesses are run in the same manner.
The problem then? Like most Christians [and most Americans in general] Chick-fil-A’s President Dan Cathy has said he’s against gay marriage. A position that the current President of the United States held until just a few short months ago, when it became politically advantageous to “evolve” on the issue.
As readers know, in Obama’s America, any opinion held by a citizen that doesn’t meet approval of the hard core, radical left, is a no-no. So, Chick-fil-A has been targeted by these radical thugs.
It’s more than just a bunch of hate-filled democrats though, two big city Mayors, Thomas Menino of Boston and Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, have attacked Chick-fil-A and declared they won’t allow the company to expand in their cities.
Emanuel went as far as saying Chick-fil-A’s values weren’t Chicago’s values. God I hope not, because when I think Chick-fil-A, I think of delicious, wholesome food and when I think of Chicago I think of hoods, corrupt politicians, and violent murdering street thugs. Oh, and all the communist menaces who have been created there and unleashed on the world. So I’m absolutely ecstatic that Chick-fil-A’s values are nothing like Chicago’s values!
Sarah Palin has commented on this thuggish behavior to Fox News’ Tadd Starnes:
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tells me she is appalled at Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s comments about Chick-fil-A and said the leftwing attacks are nothing more than thuggery.
“Chicago thuggery is a scary thing in 2012,” Palin told me. “For its politicians to think they can muscle businesses and shut them out just because they hold a differing, albeit traditional, view on an issue is a scary thing indeed.”
Emanuel said he would support banning the construction of a second Chicago-area Chick-fil-A because the company’s owner believes in the biblical definition of marriage — meaning a union of one man and one woman.
“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” Emanuel said in a statement to Fox News.
Palin balked at the threats to ban the private, family-owned restaurant from the Windy City.
“With a representative of Chicago politics making these threats, Id’ be loathe to support any politician hailing from Chicago who supported Rahm and this radical action.”
Palin said the owner of Chick-fil-A is opposed to redefining the traditional definition of marriage — as are most Americans who’ve voted on the issue.
She said President Obama — until recently — opposed redefining the traditional definition of marriage. He evolved on the issue “when it became politically convenient for him to flip-flop around on.”
“Did these protesters oppose President Obama,” Palin asked.
“The leftwing’s double standard with intolerance of other people’s opinions in quite tiring, yet so expected,” she added. “This is merely more of the same.”
Democrats are intolerant totalitarians. For the most part, when Conservatives [really all decent Americans] don’t like a product or service, or aren’t happy with a certain business, they simply don’t buy the product or visit the store. Democrats, on the other hand, want to first attack, then outright ban anything they don’t like. Be it food, light bulbs, or certain businesses. There is a definite evil in all of they do.
The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.
Chick-fil-A is a family-owned and family-led company serving the communities in which it operates. From the day Truett Cathy started the company, he began applying biblically-based principles to managing his business. For example, we believe that closing on Sundays, operating debt-free and devoting a percentage of our profits back to our communities are what make us a stronger company and Chick-fil-A family.
Our mission is simple: to serve great food, provide genuine hospitality and have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.
As Americans we cannot stand idly by while radicals attack other Americans. This attack on Chick-fil-A goes against everything America stands for. It’s a direct assault on Liberty and Freedom. This evil must stop. Americans must take a stand. If the democrats get away with this, they will only be emboldened to attack more American citizens.
If you like chicken, I suggest you stop by your local Chick-fil-A, grab a bite and tell them you support their God given rights of Liberty and Freedom, and the right to express their opinion without repercussions.
BTW, even if you are cool with gay marriage, you should be alarmed. You might think it’s fine for democrats to spew hate towards Chick-fil-A. Just wait, one day they will find something near and dear to your heart and target it as well. Evil never sleeps and the democrat’s ability to find something to destroy doesn’t either. Remember that always.
