"For many who went to eat at Chicago-area Chick-fil-As Wednesday amidst calls to support the company presidents anti-gay marriage stance, it didnt come down to whether they agreed with him or not.
Rather, they said, it was simply to show they supported Dan Cathys right to espouse his beliefs beliefs that they said shouldnt impact whether another Chick-fil-A should be allowed to open in the city.
I came out to support freedom of speech, said Bob Matter, a paralegal and self-described atheist, liberal and supporter of gay marriage. Matter, like hundreds of others, flocked to the Chick-fil-A at 30 E. Chicago. There should be no government limits on what you believe.
Support even came from members of the gay community like Amnwari Ndlay-Owusa, a South African who is a student at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
As long as I dont get discriminated against, I respect his opinion because its his opinion, he said while eating at the restaurant with friends.".......

“PRO TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE” CONTROVERSY DRAWS CROWD TO LOCAL CHICK-FIL-As!’”
MSM lying sacks of...
Michael Medved had Philadelphia Councilman James Kenny on his radio show on Tuesday. Medved was cordial to him, but Kenny became unhinged when confronted with his own hypocrisy and lies.
The main "talking point" that Kenny used over and over again (and that Rahm Emanuel, Mendino, and all the other fascists agreed upon) was the word "Hater!"
You see, anyone who believes, holds dear, or espouses Judeo-Christian law and teachings is a "Hater!"
Medved asked Kenny if the Catholic church (of which Kenny has said he is a member) was filled with "Haters!" The church (for now) still espouses marriage as between a man and a woman. Kenny tried to back track, but he simply became more hostile, shouting at Medved and accusing him of talking over him.
In Nazi Germany, you could be labled as anti-German simply by expressing a viewpoint that was supported by a Proverb or a Psalm. Read about what happened to Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The Nazis would shout that you were espousing "Jewish lies!" and you would be hauled away to be questioned, tortured, and imprisoned. Your property would be taken away, and your family could then be arrested as well.
Doesn't anyone see what is happening here? We are being confronted, head on, by evil Fascism.
If the Left, Obama, Democrats, the Media, and Homosexuals can simply brand you as a "Hater!", then you are lower than a child rapist, a traitor, and a murderer. They can then do anything they want to you.
Some Americans stood up to Fascism on a small, but important scale yesterday by flocking to Chick-Fil-A.
"The righteous detest the dishonest; the wicked detest the upright."
I pray that the righteous of this nation stand up to evil again, and again. That we defeat them, and throw them out of office.
Only God can do this. Pray with me that He will.
Your prayer touched my heart. I’m with you. Praying.
they could have marriage today and it still wouldn’t give them what they want..They will never be man and wife. its no more than a civil union between same sex.
Clearly the CFA story has wings, so to speak. It puts the Dems in a difficult situation. Does the party (Obama) support Emmanuel’s and Menino’s attempt to ban on CFA in their cities or not? A neutral press would put this question to Obama. They won’t unless the Romney campaign makes an issue of it. Romney’s campaign is probably focus-grouping it now (sarc).
“Praise the Lord and pass the ammo!”
Where there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But with wise and knowledgeable leaders, there is stability. Proverbs 28:2
A RARE smile on the Father’s face yesterday. When my people.......
Exactly the point I was going to make.
Cathy’s statement was PRO BIBLICAL MARRIAGE.
And the left’s outrage exposes the true goal of their agenda - the dissolution of biblical marriage.
Back when I was “doing battle” on “mixed” websites, I offered up the “civil unions” compromise.
The homos were INSISTENT that it be “marriage”, and treated in law and in society as EXACTLY THE SAME as a man/woman marriage. They would accept no less.
"So, how do you feel about evangelical Christians, Mr Tolerance?"
Exactly. Doesn’t matter if you agree with Mr Cathy our not. What all freedom and liberty loving people should recognize is the danger of letting the Mayors et al get away with their statements. It is wrong, very very wrong for them to use their public offices to discriminate against businesses based on personal beliefs. They should be upholding the law, not acting like third world despots. Their actions are un-American.
If the screaming homos in that pic represent the threatened Anti-Chick Fil-A Rainbow Gross-In, then tomorrow will be SHTF.
“Be peaceful but be prepared.”
This is true. I didn’t have time to wait and couldn’t eat there yesterday.
Tell Josh McGhee and Casey Toner directly.
They likely didn’t write the headline so tell their boss too.
Try the Editor in Chief, Metro Editor, or the Photo Editor.
Why not call it “Free Speech Lunch” or Pro-marriage rally?
They want to be normal. Some can be with help, but the abnormal can never be normal.
Chicago aldermen are absolute authorities in their wards. They can make or break a business through zoning, permitting/inspections for construction, Streets and Sanitation, and health inspections.
At any point a Chicago business can be shut down. Many politicians have used inspections and zoning to get rich. The issue isn’t just pertinent to Chicago, but to all urban areas.
Zoning, licensing and permitting are all anti-consumer, anti-commerce and anti-human. Politicians and their bureaucrats don’t know better. Most often they’re an impediment to improvement in their own communities.
At some point GOP governors must address zoning, licensing and permitting issues. Think of the effect of licensing on medical costs alone. A full blown doctor, a recognized expert in their field cannot doctor in America without a license. The licensing is too much of a hassle.
