Chick-fil-A: Obama and the Democrats' Jihad Against Christians

The relentless war by the left on Christians and biblical values has reached a new and more frightening phase with the announcements by Democrat mayors and city officials across the country that they are “banning” fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A from their cities because company President Dan Cathy said unapologetically that he is in "support of the traditional family."

Chick-Fil-AMake no mistake about it; this is much bigger than Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A.

Far from being champions of the constitutionally protected freedoms of speech and religion -- and the “tolerance” prized by liberals -- the Democratic Party has now, once and for all, dropped all pretence of respecting the values held by tens of millions of American Christians and has instead launched a concerted attack to undermine those values in favor of the radical homosexual agenda.

This began, not with the media-generated controversy over Dan Cathy’s witness for the biblical definition of marriage, but when President Barack Obama announced that his position on same-sex marriage had “evolved” from one of opposition to one of acceptance.

The acceptance Obama announced was quickly followed by active advocacy in favor of same-sex marriage by Democratic National Committee Chairman Deborah Wasserman Shultz, who announced the Democrats would have a plank in their national platform favoring same-sex marriage.

Acceptance and advocacy have now, as they always do in the liberal mind, quickly moved to coercion and punishment for those who disagree with them.

Thus, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino felt free to tell The Boston Herald that, “it will be very difficult” for Chick-fil-A to obtain licenses for a restaurant in Boston because the management holds Christian religious views.

Chicago Alderman Proco “Joe” Moreno quickly announced that he intends to block the chain from opening its second Chicago location because Chick-fil-A’s management witnessed for the biblical definition of marriage, saying, “I will now be denying Chick-fil-A’s permit to open a restaurant in the First Ward.”

And President Obama’s former Chief of Staff, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, quickly chimed-in to support the idea that the local Chick-fil-A franchisee should be punished because the company president -- in far-away Atlanta -- is openly Christian and applies "biblically-based principles" to its business management.

In the San Francisco suburb of Mountain View, California, specious zoning complaints have temporarily blocked a new Chick-fil-A from opening there as well.

It doesn’t matter that Chick-Fil-A has not turned away a single customer because he or she was a homosexual. It doesn’t matter that Chick-Fil-A has not discriminated in any way against either employees or customers. Democrats want to punish the company, its management and employees because they would not stay silent on the issue of same-sex marriage.

The goal of Democrats in the controversy over Dan Cathy’s remarks and Chick-fil-A’s company policies is not to convince a majority of Americans that same-sex marriage is the kind, fair or "tolerant" position to hold – or even that it is the constitutionally correct policy.

The goal of Democrats is to threaten, bully, coerce and punish millions of Americans into abandoning their Christian beliefs in favor of a soulless secularism with government at its center.

To escape a place where the government told you that to succeed you must reject Christian values or that you must think a certain way is why millions fled to America and the New World.

If Democrats can punish and coerce Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A into submission on same-sex marriage, where will the attacks on Christians and biblical values end? It is time for Christians, and others who hold freedom of conscience sacred, to recognize that we must draw the line, make our stand and fight here on this issue because, unlike our ancestors, we have no New World to which we can flee.

Stop whining

Leave it to the egomaniac conservatives to make everything about them. Listen to you whine. You all wish you could be dogmatic preachers wanting to "save" us all, eh? This is about equal rights. Maybe not all churches will be obligated to marry homosexuals. Would that make you happy?

It's the legality of their marriage that's an issue. Instead of pointing fingers and making it out to be a witch hunt on Christians (there's irony, ha) why not at least try and come up with something that can make both people happy?

Whether you support or oppose gay marriage ...

The hypocritical bullying by the statists against Christians shows what little regard the statists have for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights

Bully Is As Bully Does

Sarah Palin Rocked The Woodlands For Ted Cruz yesterday evening.

Near the beginning of her speech she mentioned that she was going to stop at the Chick-Fil-A restaurant in Woodlands on the way back to the airport to loud cheers from the audience.

She did. Subsequently she posted a photograph of her and Todd Palin at the restaurant.

Why mention this? Because within 4 short hours, the photo has generated over 175,796 likes, has been shared over 12,844 times and generated 13,733 comments.

That is a huge response.

The Romney campaign may want to focus on economic freedom. However, this election is about much more, pitting those who believe in individiual liberty and responsibility against those who believe that the Permanent Political Class has all the answers and we are mere subjects.

Obma's Fault

Of course it's Obama's fault who else is there to blame. Don't matter what it is blame it on Obama.

Look at it this way now you can see and hopefully understand how women feel when republican conservatives work aggressively to strip them of their right to choose to deny them health care and contraception.

Jut suck it up boys

I will get my dinner tonight from there, if it is up to the social standing of the businesses that we choose to support or avoid a business , then let's ask all the businesses to publicly post their social standing on issues so that some of us can choose not to support those who are not on the same page with us ...this could go both ways...

OMG, this is so awful!  +RIP+ Don Perry,  former VP Public Relations Chick-fil-A

Chick Fil A

    The success of this business does not depend on the cities named anyway and the free advertising accompanying this contrived incident is probably the best thing that has happened to this business on spite of the pro sodomy position of this President.
