...Progressive politicians from coast to coast were lining up last week to keep Chick-Fil-As...restaurants out of their towns after the companys president... made statements that [he supports traditional marriage]. . .
Chicago alderman Joe Moreno, called Cathy bigoted and homophobic and added: Because of this mans ignorance, I will now be denying Chick-Fil-As permit to open a restaurant in the 1st Ward. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that goes for the entire city: Chick-Fil-A values are not Chicago values..........
You know who the big loser will be in that scenario?
Progressives and their companies. Because, like it or not, theyre the ones who dont share majority values.
Across America, the right to gay marriage has appeared on the ballot 32 times over the past few years, and it has lost every single time. Only six states and the District of Columbia issue licenses for same-sex marriages...
If pandering progressive politicians are allowed to put Chick-Fil-A out of business, you can bet that the folks on the other side will be doing the same to Amazon.com, whose founders just donated $2.5 million to support a gay-marriage initiative in Washington State.
Say so long to Oreos (Nabisco, earlier this summer, put them in a bag featuring a cookie with a multicolored gay-pride stuffing) as well as Cheerios, Pillsbury pastries and Green Giant vegetables (owner General Mills is opposing a Minnesota constituional amendment that would outlaw gay marriage). JC Penney, which has put pictures of gay dads in its catalogs and uses Ellen Degeneres as its spokeswoman, will be history. And well all be living in Murfreesboro.

Truth. and well stated...without any apologies from Mr. Garvin.
the biggest companies on the planet are pro-homosexual by gov’t decree.

“Ho, ho, hey, hey
I’m buycotting Chick-Fil-A”
Isa joinin’ you. ; )
What really bothers me the most about this is that these progressives are criticizing the personal views of a 90 something year old man, who grew up in very different times.
Chick-fil-a happily serves anyone who comes through their door, assuming they are wearing a shirt and shoes, I suppose.
I hate the press more each day. I have canceled my cable because not even Fox is worth watching any longer.
Chic-fil-a is making a mistake. They should be entering the small town market-towns with a population of, say, less than 60 thousand.
They would provide entrance jobs for kids there that would actually be thankful, and a product that would be welcomed as well.
The “Buy-cott” is easily outpacing the 2 percenters and their regressive supporters.
“We need to replace the term “progressive” with “regressive” because their objectives devolve to the lowest common denominator.
Geting takeout on Wednesday- 3 #1 combos, 3 peach pies and 6 grilled chicken sandwiches- hold the lettuce, tomato and pickles. (All 6 of our dogs are pro-traditional marriage and wanted to support CFA as well.)
“If other businesses like Chick-fil-a would just stand up and quit giving in to extortion they would be shocked at the support they would get.”
ABSOULUTELY 100% correct. The gay agenda is where it is today and has the support it has because they have been aggressive and relentless. If our side became the same, if the playing field were really level, they wouldn’t stand a chance.
OK: So how do we get these businesses to know this?
A related story: I once worked for an author who had a colleague who had convinced the author that he was indispensable to him. It wasn’t true of course, but the author believed it. Until one day, he found out this colleague was a liar and a fake. And when he turned to others, he got 20x the support, and realized he had never needed the guy. Same thing needs to happen here.
The dogs don’t like the crap politicians are ladling out, but like Chick-fil-A.
It’s been the best advertising for Cathy & Co. that they didn’t even have to buy.
Oh CRAP. I liked Amazon but now they have to go on my chit list.
What kind of low life piece of scum would call a man ignorant because he believes in God and his word.
Whatever it is that is Rahm Emmanuel.
May God have mercy on his soul,and he should thank that God for being his Judge,for if I were his Judge he would rot in hell.
Is that with milk?
Please excuse all typos from me for the next several months. Rescued a cat from being torn apart by 3 neighbor dogs and got catbit in finger. Finger still swollen, losing a nail and it is nigh impossible to type. Might need a 3rd dr visit to repuncture nail.
But the kitty will be fine.
Wrongo! Mopeo! The amendment would clarify the definition of marriage to that which it has been for millennia, one man and one woman.
I went Saturday.
Yes, it is very disrespectful and vulgar to demonize this quite decent old man.
