[Breaking]The Civil Rights Agenda files complaints against Chick-fil-A [LGBT Revenge]
Chicago Phoenix ^ | Aug 2 2012 | Tony Merevick

Posted on 08/02/2012 2:35:48 PM PDT by scottjewell


The Civil Rights Agenda, a local LGBT rights advocacy group, filed multiple complaints with the Illinois Department of Human Rights Thursday, alleging that the Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A restaurant chain’s “intolerant corporate culture” violates Illinois law and a provision in the state’s Human Rights Act.

“In our current high speed media and social media environment, Chick-fil-A has announced and caused to be published, to hundreds of millions of people, that LGBT people are unacceptable and objectionable,” said Jacob Meister, Governing Board President of TCRA and the attorney who filed the complaint. “They have made it clear the lives of LGBT individuals are unacceptable to them and that same-gender families are unwelcome at Chick-fil-A.”

THIS is what "moderates," libertarians and "fiscal conservatives" want to call a truce on.

Awake yet, Mitch Daniels?!

You don't think this latest Civil Rights Agenda of LGBT revenge won't backfire just as their earlier attempts have?
I do.

Yep, keep it coming. I hope they do this right up to election day. Lunch a CFA and then on to the voting booth.

Fundraising gimmick.

Good call.

I'm thinking of going to CFA today (Friday) and I plan to completely IGNORE whoever is low class enough to participate in this in-your-face “kiss-in”. Maybe if we all just ignore them and don't make a scene over their making a scene, we will deflate whatever stupid point they think they are making.

Followed your posts (plural) and I could not agree more with your thoughts. Being in uncharted territory is where our leaders have led. Conservatives struck a chord on Wednesday, August 1, 2012. When talking with my spouse on Wednesday we agreed lawsuits would soon start. It is begun. There will be no turning back time and the march forward took a hard right turn on Wednesday, August 1, 2012. The fear, on both the left and right, has reared its head of those who are Conservatives. Conservatives had been silent for too long and allowed the left and the rinos their time to enslave. The push back has begun. We are in uncharted territory because of the idiocy of the elected. May God and Heaven have mercy on us all, for the devil and hades will not.

Colonel, the strategy by the left and the rinos will be to further travel the path toward hades. If people do not know where we are headed, they are not paying attention. Many will welcome the time to come. I will fear it for my children and grandchildren, though in the course of things to be, it was to be. Good Luck everyone, and keep your powder dry.

The perverts' hissy fit cannot be based on CFA opposing anything, because they haven't. The owner simply stated what he supports; the restaurants have no opinion. A right every individual still has, in spite of the pink mafia.

I agree. It's not as if CFA has a "Serving Heterosexuals ONLY" sign in every restaurant or hiring agreements that an employee must swear to not being homosexual, does it? What's next the Muslims sue CFA because it is a "Christian" run organization? The Seventh-Day Adventists and Orthodox Jews sue because CFA is open on Saturday (their Sabbath) and they can't get a sandwich on Sunday because it's closed? The National Cattlemen's Beef Association sues because CFA won't sell beef? I mean, where DOES it stop?

He said he supports traditional marriage. According to progressives, thats discrimination. The left isn’t going to quit on this. Either the CEO backs down, or court costs will cost him a fortune.

It shouldn't cost CFA a dime. In fact, it should cause the frivolous complaint filer to file for bankruptcy after he is counter-sued for defamation, libel and harassment and he is ordered to pay CFA's legal fees to boot!

It seems to me, that right now the best way to increase profits at any type of business, would be to come our as pro-traditional values. Of course any business that does will come under attack the lunatics & regressives, but there are more sane, moral & normal people than the freak show on the left.

DISMISSED on grounds of Stupidity, heterosexual hatred, and no violation of the law.

PAY TRIPLE DAMAGES and get the F**k out of town.

Attorney’s name should be changed from Meister to SHISTER. More truthful and fitting. He should be reprimanded or sanctioned for filing a Frivalous Lawsuit.

This is more lawfare from the left. Inventive conservative legal organizations need to figure out to counter with their own lawfare to make the price too high for this form of free speech and religious harasssment to continue.

Agreed, but conservatism doesn't mean what it used to.

Conservative darling Rep. Paul Ryan supports ENDA, a proposed federal law that would allow the Department of Justice to conduct chilling investigations of complaints like these.

What possible case does this group have?

None. But, that's irrelevant. As Rush so aptly points out, it's the seriousness of the charge, not the facts of the matter.

Another current case in point, of course, is Harry Reid's charge that Romney has paid no income tax.

Repeat a big lie often enough and loudly enough.....Check.

Yes, all too true. I found another article on it on David Badash’s (gay advocate) site:

“The allegations come from a man who is Christian, unmarried, and in a relationship with a male partner. Together they are raising a daughter in a “non-traditional” family unit, documents from The Civil Rights Agenda state.

“I do not believe that it is possible for me to eat at Chick-fil-A without being discriminated against simply because I am an unmarried homosexual in a ‘non-traditional’ family unit,” the claimant states, adding, “as a result of Chick-fil-A’s corporate policies which have been both directly and indirectly published by the company’s executive officers, I am being denied a public accommodation free from discrimination against me.”

The claimant, who quotes Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy’s widely-puiblicized anti-gay comments, adds:

“Although I would like to be treated equally and with dignity and respect at Chick-fil-A restaurants, the company’s widely published corporate philosophy, culture and policies make clear to me that as an unmarried homosexual in a “non-traditional” family unit, I am inferior to married heterosexuals and therefore, unwelcome, objectionable and unacceptable to Chick-fil-A.”

The complaint notes that Chick-Fil-A licensees ”have contractually agreed to follow, comply with and refrain from rejecting the statements of corporate policy and ‘values’ as stated by Chick-fil-A’s COO, Dan Cathy,” and “have contractually agreed to be part of the Chick-fil-A ‘brand’ and ‘values’ as determined and dictated by the Chick-fil-A licensor.”

The complaint further notes that “each of the local owners have entered into contracts with Chick-fil-A which require them to adhere to and refrain from contradicting Chick-fil-A’s “values” and corporate policies and philosophy, including, but not limited to the statements of policy and philosophy…”
