Attacks on Chik-Fil-A = An Attack on Christianity
The recent and current attacks on Chik-Fil-A by LGBT groups just because of one man’ s opinion, Dan Cathy, owner of Chik-Fil-A is nothing more than a continuing attack on Christianity that is going on around the world and is now reaching here. At the beginning of his presidency when Obama went on his apology tour of the U.S. in the middle east countries he stated that “ the U.S.is the largest muslim country on earth” when he was asked by a reporter there if the U.S. is a Christian nation.
In countries like Egypt that once allowed Christians, they are now slaughtering them .The same is happening in places like Iran and Saudi Arabia and Syria. Though not as brutal here, the onslaught on freedom of speech and Christianity by liberal groups who claim to support freedom of speech is very fascistic to say the least. Rahm Emanuel , the mayor of Chicago and the mayors of Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco all said they would block any attempt for Chik-Fil-A to build there. This is pure fascism at its’ best. karl Marx would be proud. Rahm Emanuel said, “Chik-Fil_A’s values are not Chicago’s values.” Oh No? Dan Cathy stated his values for traditional marriage and in response to the protests he said, “It’s as if they are shaking their fist at God saying to God, ,”We know better than you do about our lives.”
Mobs of people all over the country packed Chik-_Fil-A’s all over the country in support of free speech and Dan Cathy’s right to say what he believes as do many Americans. Meanwhile gay activist groups planned a kiss-in to counter the protests. This will only hurt their cause and divide the country even more. It’s not like Dan Cathy discriminates against gays , in fact, just the opposite, he hires gays and now because of their protests his gay employees are feeling the brunt of it and getting hit from both sides. One gay employee said a supporter used a gay slur when mentioning the protest and other gay people accuse him of selling out by working for Cathy.
Hans Spakovsky ,a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation and former justice dept attorney to the assistant attorney general for civil rights said, “Chik-Fil-A may have a good case under the first amendment if the city uses their religious or political beliefs as a basis for denying a business a license for doing business in that city.” Hans further stated that “this is the kind of thing that happens in fascist states.”
On Thursday I visited a local Chik-Fil-A in Paramus, N.J. and thanks to an employee there I noticed I was in the very same Chik-Fil-A that was featured on the cover of the NY Post that day that I was holding in my hand. I started a conversation with the employee . Another employee came over to me and said how it was so packed that there was a two hour wait on line and they did six times their regular business.
Gay groups and their supporters are trying to turn this into an anti-gay thing. That is so untrue. The crowds that showed up weren’t haters, they’re there to support freedom of speech and religious freedoms. Those that turn this into some straight vs. gay thing have missed the point entirely.
I see the great kiss –in by gay groups has turned into nothing more than a peck on the cheek. Gays are only 1% o f the population and not the 10% they claim.
. Dan Cathy,Chik-Fil-A’s owner hires gays and they say they are refusing to give their names in interviews because they are getting it from both sides. Their own people are accusing them of selling out and the supporters give therm indirect comments. I don’t blame them for not wanting to speak up.
When former Governor Mike Huckabee announced on his TV show that they should have a national Chik-Fil-A day in support of Don Cathy’s remarks supporting traditional marriage, he had no idea it would take off like it did as thousands around the country lined up around the blocks in support.
