With Chick-fil-A fight, progressive mayors get their ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ moment

The Roman Catholic Church, for instance, opposes gay marriage. It also operates Catholic Charities, the largest private social service provider in the country. As a matter of faith, Catholics aim to grow their ranks, help more people in need and add new parishes over time. ... But as Chick-fil-A found out, mayors will fight efforts as mundane as selling chicken if people at the helm also oppose gay marriage. Why should Catholics or Catholic Charities not be targeted on the same basis?

The veil is slipping on the leftists’ faces - let’s yank it fully off.

It’s time we, and those with big microphones, state loudly and strongly that the left’s agenda is anti-Christian, and homosexuals are simply pawns in the war that the left is conducting against Christian beliefs.

Well, Mayor “Mumbles” Menino backed away faster than a scared cat, so the Chick Fil-A liberal jihad isn’t an unstoppable juggernaut.

Tomorrow’s the big day. It either ends with the faggies owning the 98 percent, or it doesn’t.

I agree. Its time; it’s late.

Yes, he did run away. I actually hope that this liberal jihad continues, in order to fully awaken conservatives. The latter have been so luke-warm, so complacent, that I really have no wish to return to those days. Am hoping that this Chick-Fil-A moment is a point of no return. Otherwise, it will be a return to the same-old, same old. More mush culture, more yawning about social values. I don’t see that as a good thing in any way.

No mention of the Left’s Most Favored Religion, the ROT? (religion of terror, AKA islam))

"Tomorrow’s the big day. It either ends with the faggies owning the 98 percent, or it doesn’t."------------- Right! - there has to be a showdown. Things can't continue on like this. By the way, *FRIDAY AUG 3* is also the big day: That is when Get Equal has scheduled their "Same Sex Kiss-In at local Chick-Fil-As" and Christian conservative pundit Caiden Cowger has scheduled his "Heterosexual Day at local Chick-Fil-As".

Whenever a lib makes mention of CFA's "hatefulness", we should respond "Well, Islam mandates death for homosexuals, so when are you going to picket the local mosque?"

Knowing how the real estate business operates, I’m sure Mumbles Menino got a phone call from the developer or property owner who was negotiating the lease with Chick-Fil-A, asking him what kind of an @sshole would interfere with a real estate transaction like that.

In Boston the property developers are either in bed with city hall or they aren’t very successful.

Right. But "in bed with city hall" doesn't mean they're beholden to the political grandstanding of a mildly retarded jack@ss in the mayor's office.

"In bed with city hall" means they own the mayor, not vice versa.

The Mosque question must be put to the mayors of SF, Boston, and Chicago.

So......why didn’t the faggies schedule their gross-ins for Wednesday the 1st, hmmmmm? Because they feared that a “clash of titanic proportions” might ensue?

Tomorrow the Chick Fil-A’s will be jam-packed with supporters (Heh, heh, I can WALK from my house to my nearest CF-A!) and that’s going to include lots of families & children. If the faggies start kissing & prancing in THAT setting, there will be arrests for public indecency.

Oh, did I mention I am writing from deep inside friendly territory here in Columbia, South Carolina? There have been “gay pride” manifestations on the State House grounds but they are greeted with catcalls & flipoffs.

(By the way, just what in the H*** is it that these people are “proud” of, anyway??? I really don’t want to know!)

Yup.

And if you notice on their placard, it is scheduled for “8 PM EST/7 pm Central/5 pm Pacific”.

I really do think that: 1. they are afraid of the opposition so 2. Scheduled their “photo/press opportunity” for a time when they believed they would have the restaurants to themselves. So unfortunately, if you want to clash with them, you must go at 8 PM EST, 7 PM Central, 5 PM Pacific. ;)

I don’t believe it works that way in Boston. There are a number of developers who have found that out the hard way. The big dig and the development of the harbor - they’re littered with bodies.

Yes, in other cities they may ‘own the mayor’ but not all. Some cities it is about money. Other cities, it’s about who you are, history and power.

The link sends you to a redirect, and then you have to get past the ad, and it takes you to the Washington Post article. Sorry so complicated.

Does anyone else here think this whole issue is being ginned up, sort of like the Mohammad cartoons?
First Obama ‘comes out’ in favor of gay marriage.
Next, that CNN talking head Anderson Cooper announced he was gay, like we didn’t already know that. Next, some quote from an obscure religious magazine somehow gets widespread play?
Finally, the DNC announces that they are going to be supporting gay marriage. They are trying to ignite a war on gays like their war on women.

Of course.

Massachusetts is Gay Ground Zero.

Gov. Deval Patrick, as well as being being a corrupt progressive hack in the tradition of his pal Obama, is an avid gay supporter. He appointed a gay justice who "wed" her partner to the Supreme Court, and marched with his family in the Boston "gay pride" parade along with his gay daughter. Seems likely that Mumbles Menino was following the script as directed from DC via the governor's office.

The gross display planned for Friday is an even greater assault on Christianity. Many Christians consider Friday a holy day, since it is the day Our Lord was crucified.

it’d be a shame if people were to accidentally vomit on the perverts

if they aren’t buying anything, chik-fil-A should have the cops arrest them for loitering

One of the comments on the Post story excoriates Chick-fil-A for supporting views that are "repugnant to the general public." The comment obviously comes from a gay activist, but I honestly believe these people have convinced themselves that Christian sexual morality is exactly that: repugnant to most people. Frankly, they may be right about that.

I think they deceive themselves about “the general public”. Unfortunately, the gay agenda has gotten huge numbers on their side; however, that does not mean there are not equal or greater numbers the other way.
