Today is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, and who better to make the case for traditional values at the Republican National Convention than Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy, a man who lives them in his business and personal life and who has paid a heavy price for publicly saying so?
Mr. Cathy learned the hard way what President Obama meant when he said that this election is a choice between two different visions for the country -- and by saying publicly he supports the biblical definition of the family, Cathy put himself at odds with President Obama and his Democratic Party allies on an important part of their vision -- legalizing same-sex marriage.
President Obama has chosen to make this election a fight between those who want to overturn traditional Judeo-Christian culture, by sanctioning same-sex marriage and other policies that erode the traditional family, and those who believe that Judeo-Christian culture and the traditional family are societys most important building blocks and the foundations of American exceptionalism.
Republicans should oblige President Obamas desire to make same-sex marriage a central issue in the November election, and campaign unequivocally as the party of the traditional values Dan Cathy stood for when he said, Guilty as charged when asked about his companys support for the traditional family.
The state-sponsored terrorism by Democratic elected officials against Mr. Cathy and his business began almost as soon as his Guilty as charged remark found its way to the internet.
Democrat elected officials including Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, DC Mayor Vincent Gray -- and others -- have threatened to block Chick-fil-A from opening in those cities because the companys President, Mr. Cathy, was unabashed in expressing his Christian faith.

This state-sponsored terrorism by Democrats is exactly the kind of religious test for access to political power and commercial success our forefathers fled from when they came to the New World which is why the Framers of the Constitution made it illegal.
It took real courage for Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy -- whose fast food restaurants are already famous for their policy of being closed on Sunday -- to say that his company is in "support of the traditional family."
This is exactly the kind of courageous stand for traditional Judeo-Christian values that the Republican Party and its candidates should make every day and who better than Dan Cathy to come to the Republican National Convention in Tampa in order to show the GOP how do that?
In the wake of the anti-Christian attacks on Dan Cathy, and Chick-fil-A, FOX News commentator Mike Huckabee organized today -- August 1 -- as "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day." We plan to enjoy a great Chick-fil-A meal today, but we dont think conservatives can just grab a sandwich and go home this election.
We need someone to step forward at the Republican Convention to say these biblical values are the values we stand for everyday and these are the values upon which we will campaign and govern. If you agree that the Republican Party should run on the kind of values Dan Cathy expressed, then please sign our petition urging Governor Romney and Republican National Committee Chairman Priebus to invite Mr. Cathy to speak at the Republican National Convention.
They won’t. They’ve got a problem because Mitt’s big money man owns wedding chapels that perform gay “marriages”.
Beyond even this though - Note how this Amtrak site provides links to far left editorials and websites. Again, this is a Gov't owned, taxpayer funded railroad.
How brazen it is. Government agencies are no longer even bothering with the pretense of political neutrality. They are openly political, and have declared war on conservatives.
A most excellent idea! They’ll have their usual vile and repugnant worms invited to speak at their convention. Clinton, Warren, Sodom, Gommorah...That’s who represents them the best. I think Dan Cathy is a perfect rep. For 1st amendment purposes especially.
At the very least they should be serving their sandwiches at the convention.
Mittens Romney won’t show up if Dan Cathy does!
Usually these type of ideas sound dumb to me but I really like this one.
This would enthuse conservatives and set the libs heads on fire.
Obama ought to invite Cathy and the mayor of Boston to the White House together for a Pepsi/Coke.
Good idea. yes. (too bad Romney has to be the candidate, though)
Never happen at milt’s convention.
milt won’t go anywhere near an issue like CFA.
I agree. This guy has done more to display the disparity between conservatives and liberals than any RINO in recent history. He should be considered for the VP slot. He certainly has more balls than Romney!
Clever! Just like the Obama beer summit. Wow! Mittens has no courage. This election has been handed to him on a silver platter and I’ll wager he has no clue. Let’s hope his staff can do their job.
” This would enthuse conservatives and set the libs heads on fire. “
I’m 100% with you on this!
I fully agree with this.
I sincerely believe Mr Cathy was just honestly answering a question with actually a very sensible and normal answer that started this entire issue.
His company and the workers have weathered a storm and in many ways benefitted from it all to this point. I don’t think Mr Cathy made his comment as a prelude to entering into a political debate. He should be left alone to run his business and not be used as a prop for the RNC..............
