Skip to comments.Menino turned bullies into martyrs with Chick-fil-A stance (Laff riot)
Posted on 08/06/2012 12:39:12 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
On Wednesday, Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country turned into mob scenes, as customers turned out for what Mike Huckabee termed Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. The company says it was their best sales day ever. At some locations, customers waited in line for hours for food.
I hope Tom Menino is happy. Because this controversy has hurt, not helped, the cause of gay marriage. And it is largely Meninos fault.
A couple of weeks ago, the company was desperate to get out of the spotlight. CEO Dan Cathys remarks against gay marriage had sparked consumer outrage and threatened to damage the companys brand.
But then came Menino and after him, a parade of other municipal officials threatening to punish Chick-fil-A for the comments of its CEO and the political activities of its owners. Express policy views we disagree with? Well block you from doing business in our city.
Under pressure, Menino walked back his comments, saying he cant actually keep Chick-fil-A out of Boston. Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno hasnt been so circumspect, as he continues to make demands about what the company must do before hell allow them a permit to build in his ward.
Chick-fil-A no longer has to answer for its CEOs position on gay marriage.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Washington Mayor Vincent Gray, and New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn also added their unhelpful voices to the chorus. Gray took to Twitter to say that #hatechicken should stay out of the District of Columbia. In doing so, these city officials changed the subject, and not in a good way for advocates of gay marriage. Chick-fil-A no longer has to answer for its CEOs position on gay marriage and its owners support of organizations that oppose gay rights...

I live thousands of miles away from the closest CFA store. Yet after reading all these threads I’ve got a major hankerin’ for some sweet tea - and waffle fries, whatever they are. Preferably, served by the lovely Rachel, in the drive-through.
I notice that Ny state only has one listed and it’s in ny city. Western Ny could use a few. Our KFC’s and Popeyes are terrible, and our veiws are not nycities.
I stopped in Chick-Fil-A yesterday afternoon for a sandwich. I love the original regular chicken sandwich smeared with the original regular Chick-Fil-A sauce. Delicious. I parked and walked inside because the drive-thru line was pretty long.
I have a feeling the people working at Chick-Fil-A have been cautioned not to engage in any conversation with the customers that isnt food related. I asked if they had been busy lately and got only a quick, Yep. Good, I replied, and left with my delicious sandwich.
I enjoy reading the whining of simple faggots like Josh Barro.
Makes me chuckle.
“Cathy's remarks AGAINST gay marriage?!?!”
He did no such damn thing!!!
His remarks were IN FAVOR of the Biblical definition of marriage—if the homos have to twist that into a negative then they are so consumed with an evil deranged phobia for Christians it should be called not “gay” but “Hate Marriage!”
When are San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Washington Mayor Vincent Gray, and New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn going to do something about the hate from muslims, La Raza, and the New Black Pampers?
...”Is this the Soviet Union or Saudi Arabia?”...
Not yet..We’ll see what the verdict is in November.
Best Comment Award for this day goes to you.
Regarding your sig:

I was really bothered by the language used in this article. I’m pro traditional marriage—not anti anything. To me there’s nothing “gay” about my definition except in the original meaning of the word.
BUT that is just it. Liberals NEVER learn when not to push it or to cross the line.
It is in their genes. Give them an inch, they will demand another 12 yards.
And when push comes to shove, Libs always double down on stooopid.
You got that right.
We can safely conclude these haters hold the same vile contempt for the rest of us that hate-filled La Raza has no compunction about demonstrating. Read on.
AN EXAMINATION OF RAZA STUDIES SCHOOL CURRICULUM FINANCED BY TAXPAYERS: Textbook titled Occupied America, by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: We have got to eliminate the gringo, and if worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him, (pg. 323). The book also talks about the need for the govt of Mexico to re-take seven states in SW United States.
These shocking quotes are taken directly from Occupied America (pg. 167): Supporters would execute all white males over age 16, (also known as the Plan of San Diego). Southwest USA would become a Chicano nation.
LA RAZA AND VOTE-CRAZED POLITICIANS ARE COLLUDING TO FORCE TAX-FINANCED VIOLENCE AGAINST AMERICANS IN EXCHANGE FOR LATINO VOTES
In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to La Raza charter schools in the form of US Dept of Education grants. These schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.
In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce the teaching of murder and violence in US public schools, the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America. A selection:
Academia Semillas del Pueblo (Los Angeles)
Atzlan Academy (Tucson, AZ)
Mexicayotl Academy (Nogales, AZ)
The Dolores Huerta Prepatory High School (Pueblo, CO)
Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School (St. Paul, MN)
NOTE "Raza Studies" had been taught in Arizona public schools for a decade......until AZ lawmakers recently passed a law against it and it's violent America-hating agenda.
Thanks for posting this! I got to:
“Because this controversy has hurt, not helped, the cause of gay marriage.” And then I LOL’d!
>> Why should Chick-fil-A have to “answer” for it’s CEOs religious beliefs?
Well, he must answer to the LORD — and I think Mr. Cathy has a righteous and pleasing answer ready for Him.
The real question is, when will the *sodomites* answer for *their* perverted beliefs? Will Bible-believing Christians gain back enough “critical mass” to call them to repentence before it’s too late? Or will they remain stiffnecked until judgment day?
All things are possible with God. Pray for revival.
Hardly. People calmly and patiently standing in line is not a mob scene. How condescending can the media become.......
Occupy protesters, clad in bandanas, defecating on police cars, now that is a mob scene. Families calmly standing in line to buy chicken isn’t.
The whole Chick-fil-A thing has driven the media mad. Good.
In effect YES. We have established Humanism as our state religion, and Cathy committed heresy against that religion.
All who do not bend their knee shall be punished.
