Get Ready: Big Gay is coming after Chick-fil-a
Click here for the link on AFA website ^

Posted on 07/24/2012 8:03:34 AM PDT by Gopher Broke

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say ‘we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.” ~ Dan Cathy, President, Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A is a family-owned, family-run business which is guided by explicitly biblical business principles and even closes on Sunday in honor of what the Scriptures call “the Lord’s day.”

Chick-fil-A started in 1967 and has recorded 44 straight years of sales growth. It now has more than 1,600 restaurants in 39 states and Washington, D.C. and plans to open 77 stand-alone restaurants and 15 licensee locations in 2012.

President Dan Cathy, who to this point has been somewhat reticent in publicly declaring his and his company’s opposition to sodomy-based marriage, is now about to experience the full wrath of the homosexual lobby.

There is plenty of hate in the debate over same-sex marriage, but it’s not coming from the pro-family community, for the simple reason that disagreement is not hatred. But there is a volcanic level of vitriol and venom that spews like magma from the darkened hearts of homosexual activists. Chick-fil-A is about to find out what it is like to be Pompeii.

From the Family Research Council:

We’ll Support Chick-Fil-A, Come What Mayo!

Boston may be where America fought for its freedoms—but now, it’s a city where businesses can’t even exercise them! That’s all thanks to city Mayor Tom Menino, who is making it known that private companies aren’t welcome inside the city limits unless they share his politically narrow views. Last week, after Chick-Fil-A’s CEO Dan Cathy affirmed his belief in man-woman marriage, Menino promised to single-handedly block the chain from Boston.

Despite the fact that Cathy’s views are his own—and ignoring the company’s pledge to “treat every person with honor, dignity, and respect”—the Mayor insists, “You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population.” (Apparently, you can have a mayor that does). “We’re an open city,” Menino told the Boston Herald, “We’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion.” (Until, of course, that “inclusion” applies to people who support traditional marriage.) Surprising even the Herald staff, Mayor Menino threatened to use his political power for his personal vendetta against the Cathys, vowing to play hardball with Chick-Fil-A’s permits if it ever decided to open a restaurant in the area. “If they need licenses in the city, it will be very difficult—unless they open up their policies.”

For the government to engage in viewpoint discrimination is not only bad politics—it’s unconstitutional. Chick-fil-A may be a private company, but that doesn’t mean it has to surrender its beliefs at the dining room door. Under the First Amendment, executives at Chick-Fil-A are just as entitled as any American to speak publicly about their views. The editors at the Boston Herald agree. In a joint column, they write that the condemnation of “such an abuse of government power” should be “swift” and “overwhelming.” “In Menino’s city, the punishment for failing to toe the progressive line is banishment.” Ironically, that’s exactly the kind of despotism that Boston ‘s patriots were fighting more than 230 years ago. Increasingly, though, it is becoming apparent that this kind of ideological totalitarianism is the train that follows same-sex “marriage.”

Even academia, which prided itself on intellectual freedom, is showing no tolerance for truth—even when that truth is empirically established. Mark Regnerus, the sociologist behind a sweeping study on same-sex parenting, is learning the hard way what it means to cross the liberal elite. His research, which outlines some negative outcomes of growing up in a homosexual household, has been annihilated by the Left—despite being the only gold-standard study of its kind. (Read the chilling story of Regnerus’s life, post-publication, here.)

Anyone who thinks that redefining marriage will satisfy homosexual activists hasn’t been paying attention. There is no appeasing this minority until the only freedom that exists in America is the freedom to agree with the radical Left. In the meantime, show your support for a company that insists on operating by its principles. Join Gov. Mike Huckabee next Wednesday, August 1, for Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. Stop by your local chain and show Mayor Menino that America is hungry for more corporate leadership like Dan Cathy’s!

I don’t do fast food and haven’t since 1998. However, if this escalates I pledge to eat one full “meal type” menu item at Chick-fil-A each week.

I really doubt that a gay boycott of CFA would be noticed.

However, they and their ideological father will not allow any opposition to exist, so they’ll inexorably try to root out any holdouts.

I’m in. The gay “rights” movement long ago became a crazy group of thugs. I’ve seen them force people out of business on a smaller scale, in Philadelphia just for contributing to Rick Santorum’s senate campaign.

All these “victims” groups have become far from it, they are vicious anti social people.

I recommend CFA's "Chargrilled and Fruit" salad, with the berry viniagrette dressing.

CFA is my 10 YO son's favorite fast food place...he loves the chicken nuggets, which are 100% chicken breast.

As I understand, the Pink Mafia is planning a "kiss=in" at some Chick-fil-A stores. It's not enough for them to just boycott, they have to go in and disrupt.

One thing to keep in mind when reading Rom 1:18-32 -

the acceptance of homosexuality will not, as the CFA president said, LEAD to God’s judgement.

It IS God’s judgement.

They got Cracker Barrel to cave. They got Dr. Laura exiled to subscription radio. And they got J.C. Penney to literally commit corporate suicide on their behalf. We should not underestimate the power of the Gay Mafia. Pray that Mr. Cathy and his company will stand firm.

You’re probably right about the gay boycott. Gay men love to eat “foodie” food (with the exception of chubbies and chubbie chasers), not Chick Fil A. But I could see them descending on some mall, though, and throwing food and trays around.

I must remember to buy my cokes at Chick Fil A when I’m at the mall.

The problem is not so much the number of homosexuals (minimal). Its the number of liberal moonbats who seem gung-ho about the Gay agenda. From my observation, this is maybe 20-25% of the population. Probably a higher portion of the under 30 demographic.

But there is a volcanic level of vitriol and venom that spews like magma from the darkened hearts of homosexual activists. Chick-fil-A is about to find out what it is like to be Pompeii.

Our fore founders used to give them the death penalty, because they were such a danger to normal society.
Later, they just got life imprisonment, because their crime wasn't murder (AIDs was not around then) .
Next, They thought maybe they were mad, and put them in the insane asylums.

Today, since around 1980, they've been free to walk the streets, but now you understand why our ancestors did what they did. It's only been less than 15 years, and look what they've done to this country already. These people aren't normal, so what do we do with them?
I would suggest they be put back into the asylums until some one figures that out.

My theory is that there are a lot of young liberals who weren’t around when the Civil Rights movement started in the 50s/60s and so wish they could be part of something like that, so they latched onto the whole gay rights thing, because it makes them feel like they’re part of something like that.

Even though one movement was based on characteristics, skin color, that a person had no control over and should have no bearing on their behavior, and the other is based on a chosen behavior, making it an apples to oranges thing.

The argument can be made since their intent is to harm the business and drive them out of business its not protected speech.

I'd have the homos arrested for their heterosexual intolerance. I'd demand their heterosexual intolerance be considered a hate crime, too.
Give them a nice little, cold, hard, cement cell to poke each other in for awhile.

BTW, The federal government is putting another $150-million into the homos AIDS research - and that's heterosexual money, too!

I’ll follow your lead on that too. This company has been a welcomed business in every community I’ve ever been in. I remember times when people were annoyed that they closed on Sundays, as does Hobby Lobby, but came to appreciate their strength. I don’t think we’ll let this one go down.

I stand with the owner of Chick-Fil-A and agree with what he believes. The gay agenda is that we no longer “tolerate” their lifestyle, we must now embrace it. Can’t do that with something God says is an abomination before his eyes.
