Glory to God: The Left's War Against Chick-fil-A
Youth for Western Civilization ^ | January 31, 2011 | William L. Houston

Posted on 01/31/2011 9:29:33 AM PST by WilliamHouston

Chick-fil-A has always been my favorite fast food restaurant.

Last year, I cut fast food out of my diet. I have made one lone exception to this rule: the Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich.

At the end of every successful week of physical fitness, I treat myself with an indulgence of delicious fried chicken and tasty waffle fries. The thought of my weekly "victory meal" motivates me to power through my goals at the gym.

As a Southerner, I have always loved fried chicken. The cleanliness and great service at Chick-fil-A is another major reason why I go there. There is something about the presence of bright, smiling people who enjoy serving me - a stark contrast with the proletarian staff of McDonald's or Krystal's - that keeps me coming back for more. . .

Recently, a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Pennsylvania catered to a "controversial hate group" called the "Pennsylvania Family Institute" which opposes the legislative assault on the established definition of marriage.

It caused an uproar in the gay blogosphere.

Over the weekend, the New York Times wrote an article publicizing the gay led activist assault on the "homophobia" of Chick-fil-A.

Christian students at Indiana University in South Bend recently discovered that Chick-fil-A has been kicked off campus. University administrators "decided" to remove Chick-fil-A as a vendor for catering to the Pennsylvania Family Institute.

I was depressed to find out that Chick-fil-A has raised the white flag and will no longer cater to "anti-gay marriage groups."

This is just the latest example that "tolerance" is a one-way street for the Left: conservatives are expected to change their ways and resign to their inevitable defeat in the culture wars. . . .

I’d patronize them frequently, but their nearest store is 70 miles away.

Simply say, “Chick-Fil-A is against gay marriage.” Eat there if you support us.

Sales will rise 200%.

Why are only leftist supoorting organizations allowed to be vendors in schools?

If they SUPPORTED abortion would they be allowed back onto the campus?

Sadly the left won the battle in this war. Not sure what Chick fil A is thinking but probably should have stayed out of politics anyway. They will lose money over this. The Sunday’s off is great showing Christian values but to express your politics when all you do is sell chicken to the ENTIRE public is not smart.

Maybe that expectation is there because that's what companies do? Instead of sticking to its guns, Chick-Fil-A rolled over and caved without any real fight at all. Instead of voicing its opinions, it couldn't surrender fast enough. Don't blame the left for their tactics, blame companies like Chick-Fil-A for helping them get away with it.

The angry left should really protest at all Chic fila locations on Sunday to hurt them since that is a day of worship for Christians. Yeah, go on sunday and shut them down.....

It is smart if one looks at the entire picture and the health of one’s country. Many of the founders back in 1776 were businessmen who had Tory clients but they still made waves and took the risk. They were men first and businessmen 2nd.

Here is what I don’t understand:

When you actually try to “follow the thread” to figure out JUST HOW Chick-fil-A supposedly is anti-gay(-marriage), you find this very long-winded, iterated explanation. Best I can figure out, the company gave a small grant to an entity that put on Bible-based marriage-strengthening seminars. That’s it.

It didn’t fund Prop 8, it didn’t oppose some sort of gay civil rights law, nothing like that.

On top of ALL THAT, the company even halted the challenged grant.

Yet still it is targeted with the seething hatred reserved for few others besides Palin.

Doesn't sound like Chik-fil-a was 'supporting' the Pennsylvania Family Institute, so much as providing a service, for which they were paid. Why should the company be penalized for simply catering an event for a group? That's their business!

Frankly, if that's the reason they were being criticized, they should fight back with the idea that the groups doing the criticizing were interfering with the company's ability to do business, PERIOD!

Hard to believe that the only Chick Fil-A in New York is on University Place, near NYU, in Greenwich Village.

McDonalds and Burger King can now thank the gays for the loss ov my and my familys’ business. We will now eat exclusively at Chick-fil-A!

I also plan to energize efforts to boycott any and all businesses that take the point in support of any left-leaning person, place, movement, and specifically, any gay entity. They could simply sit down, shut up, and live life, but they are determined to get in your face, so fukem’!

This country has become over-run with common street whores. A well-placed dollar bill will always drive the outcome.

About two weeks ago one of my co-workers was talking about where we'd gone to lunch ... I mentioned Chick-fil-A which is nearby... he then went on a rant (in the middle of the office) about the owners of Chick-fil-A being of the Mormon faith and their supporting of traditional marriage (only he put it in a they're a gay-hate corporation)... he said he'd never go to a place like that.

Okay.

I'm sitting at my desk and he's going in to this rant so everyone could hear (trying to shame me/others into changing where we should/should not go for lunch)... I told him "I have no idea about that" and quickly tried to change the subject.

This same guy goes on rants about Fox News and Andrew Britebart (spelling?).

Memo to self: rule 1... don't talk to anyone in the office. rule 2... if I forget, go back to rule 1.

I like Chick-fil-A and will never stop going.

It’s disgusting that a few faggots’ displeasure, amplified by the extreme left wing NYT megaphone, can force Chick-Fil-A away from supporting a group that shares their values.

This isn't "politics" except as the homo-Left is making it - they make everything into a political issue, for Pete's sake.

This is a moral issue, and a corporation like CFA has every right - a duty, actually - to champion traditional family values. It's what sets them apart and makes them light in an darkly evil world.

I think Chick-Fil-A donated food, which is what is making the Left hopping mad.

Well, even if CFA did sell the food to the family organizations, the Left would still be mad. They just have anger as their existence.

Good for you. McDonalds, at least, has been a whore for the sodomites to the point where the AFA organized a boycott. McDonalds apparently relented, but only out of pressure, not out of their personal/corporate values. They're dead to me because of it. Same with Homo Depot. Incorrigible demons.

If you’re the type, you can probably nail him to the wall for “Creating a hostile work environment.”
I wouldn’t go to that sort of trouble, though. Might sour relations with the rest of your co-workers.
