Chick-fil-A Sandwiches No Longer on Menu at Connecticut GOP Event
The Christian Post ^ | August 20, 2012 | Alex Murashko

Posted on 08/23/2012 11:26:07 AM PDT by kevcol

The organizer of a large picnic event designed to help unify Republican leaders and supporters in Connecticut next Saturday canceled his plans to serve 100 Chick-fil-A sandwiches after deciding the controversy over the restaurant owner's stand against same-sex marriage might become a distraction.
.
.
Apparently, because same-sex marriage is legal in Connecticut, Beck reconsidered his decision, according to the Post. He plans to give 90 of the sandwiches to a homeless shelter and keep 10 for "event staff to taste."

The 10% ALWAYS get the goods.

What a ‘pubbie. Don’t rock the boat, never be in anyone’s face, compromise wherever possible, avoid the appearance of possible discomfort in someone else.

Everyone is afraid of offending the 2%.

No one is afraid to offend the 60%+ who oppose them.

And therein lies the problem.

RINO Roraback running for the empty 5th District Congressional seat has already declared his support for Gay Marriage in the primaries.

I doubt the homeless would have cared about the controversy. They would have been happy to have the sandwiches.

The party is full of liberals, totally clueless liberals.

From the responses I’ve been getting regarding Scott Brown’s pro abortion announcement, whatever it takes to win is the rule of the day.

From “The Owl and the Pusscat” by Edward Lear,
to the GOPe of Connecticut:

...
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
‘O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!’
...

We need President Lincoln and the 1863 Senate:

“And Whereas, it is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.”

We’ve knuckled under every minority group, “’cause we don’t think like the majority”, that we’ll not be able to describe anything the minorities don’t care for. We’ll end up being a quivering silent majority. We should start raising as much a ruckus as the minorities and see what happens.

Hey, this picnic was not for the rank in file which is where one is most likely to find the true conservatives. It was a picnic of leaders, by leaders, and for leaders and that elitist scum sold out their heart and soul a long time ago.

You are so right—CT is hopeless. Get out while you still can.

I go to Chick-Fil-A more often now because of the recent controversy. And a fair number of at least the male workers there still appear a little light in the loafers.

There is one rising star "Tom Scott" conservative, Len Suzio of Meriden (of all places). If he can win in November, I think he could make a serious run for governor.

And they wonder why people like me no longer consider themselves Republican. No longer contribute to Republicans. And coming soon, will no longer vote Republican.

Yet another reason why the republican party is hauling ass as fast as it can away from me.

Good graphic.

The GOP needs to be put out of our misery.

Calling it ‘useless’ is to give it too much credit.

Beck, an executive recruiter, said he ordered 100 sandwiches from the nearest Chick-fil-A franchise (in New Jersey across the states' line) as a show of support for management's First Amendment rights of free speech.

I support Chick-Fil-A, but to go through NYC to NJ to get the sandwiches means they would be cold.

CT has problems, but lack of exceptional local food is not one of them. Italian (especially apizza), sea food, comfort food (burgers, New England hot dogs) all have excellent local suppliers.

Mega Dittos!

They have been for quite some time. To me there’s not a dimes bit of difference between the parties. Conservatives are the only ones who can save this Nation.

Do you mean the 'Tom Scott' that ran for governor in 1994? I was campaigning for him, because I knew what the income tax would do for the citizens of CT.

The Hartford Courant had a picture of me at Tom Scott's headquarters on Berlin Turnpike, when we celebrating the GOP house takeover.
