Chik-fil-A And Double Standards
Caffeinated Thoughts ^ | 8-1-2012 | Tom Thurlow

Some people have a lot of nerve. Have you ever heard such hate speech? Shocking.

In all seriousness, the food at Chik-fil-A might be a little bland, but its politics are hot and spicy, with an extra helping of political incorrectness. And the Chik-fil-A president’s opinions on marriage have a lot of people’s feathers in a ruffle, and they are starting to squawk.

Homosexuality is also a disease that at the very least should be acknowledged as such.

You cannot say a condition that inhibits one of life’s most basic and defining of functions(reproduction) is healthy, unless you take leave of your sanity. We need to stop celebrating this diseases and start treating it.

I think this report has it all wrong. Those who are “squawking” are those who have turned out in full force in support of the CEO of Chik-fil-A.

What a biased report.

Homosexuality is a mental illness.

Liberals are squawking as well, just not as loudly as Christians did yesterday.

We have to stop industry from favoring the leftist agenda either thou fear or corruption. we cannot even hold our ground in the culture war if they uses fear & intimidation to turn our private industry against virtues.

Um, read the article. The writer began with sarcasm. He supports Cathy and makes some great points.

Meanwhile, anyone like me who supports Chick-fil-A is expected to participate in this week’s “buy-cott” of Chick-fil-A’s bland food, so I will dutifully join in. My only question is this: what will it take for a chain of Thai restaurants, or maybe a group of Szechuan Chinese restaurants to take the same position so that we can eat at their restaurants? Why is it that the only restaurant that defends traditional marriage also happens to be the purveyor of the most boring food around?

LOL. Well, I guess the man does have a point.

Never thought of C-f-A as bland, but ok.

While I do not think this a war to be fought politically. I also don’t like C-F-A. I think that God is big enough to handle this. If people are of the mindset to ignor God then they should live it up cause after this world it is not going to be pretty.

while I agree with you, you’re leaving yourself wide open here - our enemies will say that the food is bland and boring because conservatives and straight people are bland and boring.

It is a result of child abuse. Anyone supporting homosexuality is supporting child abuse-—like Chastity Bono being raped when she was a girl by a Lesbian.....it is a learned behavior/worldview like the Ancient Greeks and Afghanistan today prove.

It is also a regressive movement—back to Ancient Greek paganism (this is idealized in their homoerotic literature which is always about sex with boys) when slavery was rampant as well as pederasty as was child sacrifice and women are breeders only—boys for recreation.

Subversion of Marxists promote dysfunctional lifestyles to destroy our culture and all Traditions. Communist Harry Hays founded the homosexual movement in America-—he was sodomized as a boy (of course), and liked it.

Friedan was a Communist who founded the Feminist movement—a communist front to destroy the family (patriarchy) and condition women to desert their children and allow strangers to shape their worldview-—that is if they don’t kill them.

All identity politics is to divide and conquer-—Marxists want to destroy the Christian unity which made this country cohesive—trusting and great.

Marxists (homosexuals) have to kill God and Christianity in particular. That is the goal—since before the courts outlawed prayer and God in the 60’s in schools (unconstitutional).

The propaganda sleight of hand is in pretending that normal moral values are “controversial”.

Obviously, nothing Cathy said was even in the least controversial. The press and the immoralists have tried to make us pretend that it is, but it is a simple statement of what normal people have believed since time began and continue to believe.

If Homosexuals were really “gay” they would not have such a high suicide rate. Giving an illness a cute name does not stop it from being an illness.......

I think that God is big enough to handle this.

In all fairness, God is big enough to handle it all, but He did sent us out to be a light unto the world!

I don’t know how all Chick fil a are, but the one here has good food. We went yesterday, and even though it was the biggest crowd I have ever seen in a fast food place, everyone (employees and customers) were pleasant and courteous. Most of the kids were happy and well behaved. I love going to a restaurant full off a Christians, and conservatives. As far as I am concerned liberals can eat someplace else everyday.

And the good news is that Christians are fighting back, as the hugh lines at the CFA have proven.

I don't find it so, and I like spicy Chinese, Thai and Mexican. If this guy thinks so maybe he should try a little Tabasco or habanero dipping sauce.

It is TIME to fight back before it becomes illegal to state the Truth.
