Chick-fil-A: Democrats’ Jihad Against Christians
Newsmax ^ | July 30 2012 | Richard Viguerie

Posted on 07/31/2012 3:55:31 AM PDT by scottjewell

Chick-Fil-A has become the target of a Democrat-led campaign in support of gay marriage

The relentless war by the left on Christians and biblical values has reached a new and more frightening phase with announcements by Democrat mayors and city officials across the country that they are “banning” fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A from their cities because company president Dan Cathy said unapologetically that he is in "support of the traditional family."

Make no mistake about it; this is much bigger than Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A.

It doesn’t matter that Chick-Fil-A has not turned away a single customer because that customer was a homosexual. It doesn’t matter that Chick-fil-A has not discriminated in any way against either employees or customers. Democrats want to punish the company, its management and employees because they would not stay silent on the issue of same-sex marriage.
It doesn't matter how non-discriminatory you are in practice, if you think the wrong thoughts, you are a criminal.

This isn’t just a jihad against Christians. I am a Jew and my feelings about the homosexual agenda is exactly what the Bible says it should be. Don’t leave us out because we are in this fight the same as any Bible believing Christian.

Knowing that the Left is so seriously anti-Christian, why are Libs always to quick to claim that Obama is a Christian?

This is going to come back on Dems with a vengeance! When a mayor of a city prevents you from growing your business because of an "opinion" it's a dangerous abridgement of free speech.

Let the free market decide, because you can not "force" anyone to accept your opinions. If you try, you are doomed to failure.

Because it's part of the cover that they tried to build up specifically for this purpose.

The closing passages of this piece are extremely important:

“The goal of Democrats in the controversy over Dan Cathy’s remarks and Chick-fil-A’s company policies is not to convince a majority of Americans that same-sex marriage is the kind, fair or tolerant position to hold — or even that it is the constitutionally correct policy.

The goal of Democrats is to threaten, bully, coerce and punish millions of Americans into abandoning their Christian beliefs in favor of a soulless secularism with government at its center.

To escape a place where the government told you that to succeed you must reject Christian values or that you must think a certain way is why millions fled to America and the New World.

If Democrats can punish and coerce Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A into submission on same-sex marriage, where will the attacks on Christians and biblical values end?

It is time for Christians, and others who hold freedom of conscience sacred, to recognize that we must draw the line, make our stand and fight here on this issue because, unlike our ancestors, we have no New World to which we can flee.”

I think its a Jihad against people of faith in general. Except.....if you’re Muslim. If a Muslim restaurant chain owner had made similar comments, it would have been ignored or excused. You would definitely not see the same reaction. Some religions are more equal than others.

They won’t “go there”, which is totally hypocritical and cowardly of them, which is totally in character.

My guess is, they have to know that Islam professes this anti-homosexual doctrine, that it wars against females, etc. but they don’t care, as long as it doesn’t personally touch their lives or families, associates, friends etc.

What they care about is harming professing Christians.

By the time the jihadists start harming THEM in the name of radical Islam, it will be too late to do anything about it, but they’re too busy bullying and shutting up professing Christians to worry about that now.

All I can do right now is support Chick Fil A by buying their product, and this I intend to do.

I cannot understand this sudden compassion for mentally ill hedonists.

I know that as a young man dating in the late 50’s and 60’s we wanted sex, I was as horny as the next guy, but finding a girl who would perform oral sex was unusual and finding one who would do anal was almost unknown.In fact most men wouldn’t even bring it up. Today these things are considered normal in heterosexual relationships.

My belief is that we have pornography to blame.

When such acts become normal for hetero’s how far a stretch is it to do these same acts with homosexuals.How easy is it for women who refuse these acts with men to start seeking women?

Theories are easy to come up with I suppose,but that is mine.
Attacks on religion, relaxed morals, broken marriages,miscegenation,pornography,they all play a part.

Dan Cathy seems to be guilty of a thought crime. You may not hold an idea that the progressives deem improper.

You said it. How can anyone doubt the level this has now reached?

For my part, I’m glad that the whole “Chick-Fil-A wars” have reignited the culture wars and brought this agenda out in the open. It’s always best to deal with reality, instead of complacently accepting some whitewashed agenda.

Yes, I would agree. Of course people of the Jewish faith such as yourself are also targets. Really, it would make sense if the Muslims were as well, because they are so blatantly opposed to the gay agenda. Of course there is another political ax to grind on the part of Dems there.

Of course we both know that no matter how anti-gay Islam is, they cannot be the targets of liberal Democrats because there is a whole other political agenda there, involving them.

Right. It never occurs to them that that is going to come back on them big-time. But I reckon it will. Everything in its own time.

That’s the one thing the commie heterophobic anti-christians haven’t figured out! As the radical jihadi’s take more turf in the cities, they’ll target the queers and their supporters for extinction. The Jihadi’s aren’t afraid of a fight and have no need of political correctness.

The issue is even bigger than Christians and Jews. The issue is that the democraps have the power to outlaw thought. That ought to be a chilling proposition for everyone, even atheists.

The left knows Obama is a "Christian," in the same way that Pelosi and Kerry are "Catholic," nothing more than a label, they certainly don't really believe "all that stuff," that the press and their supporters know it.

The democrat party of the past, the party of Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Patrick Moynahan, Jacob Javitz, and Henry "Scoop" Jackson is long gone. What remains today is the party of Joseph Stalin and Pol Pott.

This war/agenda needs to be exposed, shouted from the rooftops, and have the light of truth shown brightly on it.

Don’t let the left be dismissive about the agenda, the goal of criminalizing traditional Christian values and beliefs.

This Christian agrees with you. This is a war against all Western Religion. The Devil is alive and well, but in the end God wins.

I saw an interview with a female British poet, of all things, who sadly said that “today, the vagina has become a second-class erogenous zone.”

I think porn has a lot to do with it, since that makes men think there’s always something better and weirder and more forbidden and more sensational out there, so “plain old sex” just doesn’t cut it anymore. I also think it’s one of the reasons for the spread of homosexuality, because men no longer look at women as sex objects, but as possessors of various orifices, one of which is no longer of any interest to them...and if all you’re looking at is orifices, other men will do as well as women.

And of course, there is the fact that we have completely separated procreation from sex, and in fact procreation is now something to be avoided.

Pretending that gays can “marry” is the final step in this.

The left started a full blown Civil War in this country as far back as 1991. They used the R King beating as “the spark to ignite the flame”.

The first “battle” in that civil war was the LA riots in 1992.

People are just now starting to catch on, and the right is just now starting to fight back.

Rahm Emanuel: No regrets on my Chick fil-A comments

BY FRAN SPIELMAN

City Hall Reporter

fspielman@suntimes.com
Last Modified: Jul 31, 2012 02:22AM

Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Monday he has no regrets about saying that “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago’s values” because the company president opposes gay marriage.

“No. I don’t” regret it, the mayor said under questioning at an unrelated jobs announcement.

“And the simple reason is, when it comes to values, there’s a policy as it relates to gay marriage. The values of our city are ones that welcome and recognize that, and I will continue to fight for that.”

Last week, Emanuel hinted strongly that he was prepared to join Ald. Joe Moreno (1st) in blocking Chick-fil-A from opening its first free-standing Chicago store in Logan Square.

Both men cited Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s public opposition to gay marriage.
