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.

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.

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.”

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.

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

BY FRAN SPIELMAN

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.
