Chick-Fil-A under attack by the folks who claim to be so tolerant of other people's views.
Chick-Fil-A is a fast foot restaurant chain that basically focuses on serving chicken related items . They have over 1600 locations across the country. I did some research on the company last year, when I happened to have notice that on a Sunday one of their locations was closed, and it wasn't a holiday. I discovered that all Chick-Fil-A restaurants are closed on Sundays. S Truett Cathy is the founder of Chick-Fil-A and is a devoted Southern Baptist as is his family which also runs Chick-Fil-A.The CEO Dan Cathy has made no bones about how he feels in his support of traditional marriage and their familiy's Christian faith.. That of course isn't sitting well with gay marriage supporters. Because of the Cathy's support for traditional marriage, Chick-Fil-A has been slung into the national spot light by the media and progressive groups hoping to go after Chick-Fil-A. in an attempt to demonize it..The attacks on Chick-Fil-A has only managed to get traditional marriage supporters and conservative activists pumped up in defending the company. The founder of Amazon.com Jeff Bezos, the founder of Microsoft Bill Gates and other progressive business icons have given money to gay marriage advocate groups with no peep from the media of course. I don't know why gay marriage groups are going after Chick-Fil-A. Actually I do.The left claims to support people's freedom of speech. Well, I guess they don't really support the freedom of other people to speak unless what they say supports what progressives believe in. On election day here in Maryland, voters will have a chance to vote on whether Maryland wants to legalize the oxymoron known as gay marriage or not. I know of some fake religious clergy who said that they will support the ballot favoring gay marriage, but they also said that they won't marry same sex couples in their church. It's amazing how blind these so called religious clergy really are. Progressives and gay marriage advocates are already demonizing Chick-Fil-A for merely expressing their views on the issue, the clergy who support gay marriage becoming law but say they won't marry same sex couples do not realize that they will be shunned, smeared and attacked the same way the Cathy family and Chick-Fil-A are if they do not go against their church doctrine and cave to political correctness. August 1st has been designated as Chick-Fil-A National Appreciation Day by the supporters Chick-Fil-A. They are doing this to send a message to the gay marriage progressive advocates who want to impose their will on a restaurant chain merely because of the convictions of the founder and his family. The left's boycott against Chick-Fil-A isn't bearing any fruit or chicken for that matter so far. A few days ago Mike Huckabee started a Chick-Fil-A appreciation day facebook site. Since then, over 300,000 people have showed their support for Chick-Fil-A. As usual, this is just another issue in which progressives find themselves on the losing end of. Progressives are the first to say that it's conservatives and the religious right who are trying to impose their views on people, but look at what is happening. Unless the Chick-Fil-A organization was discriminating against gays in the work place or in their hiring practices, this is a non issue right? Apparently not, the Cathy Family has been pulled over by the progressive PC police, but they aren't obeying orders to conform, good for them.
