The Daily "Post" - July 27, 2012 - Chick-fil-A's opinion

"This is America - everyone (you, me, Chick-Fil-A, and every other business) should all be able to have their own opinions and beliefs and should not be penalized for them. I am amazed at how blown out of proportion this has become. If you like the food, eat there - if not, go somewhere else."

Mr. Cathey is in no position to make laws, influence legislation, or in any way deny somebody their "rights" [ real or imagined ]. Yet this is exactly what a very tiny number of people would have you believe he is doing. It's really nothing more than a despicable attempt by this tiny number of people to control what a person says or thinks.

In America at one time, we ALL could have an opinion to agree or disagree and that was it. Now if you have the so called wrong opinion according to one group you get attacked like what Chic-Fil-A is going thru. The media writes " most people do not agree with Chic-Fil-A " But we find most people do, now it's boycott the business, here's how to make a Chic-Fil-A at home, attack Chic-Fil-A at all cost's, bring it down. What would happen if we did the same thing to a person's business if they were gay? To ask the people in the media to be neutral is a thing of the past. This country is more divided now than the Civil War times, no right , no wrong, almost anything goes, Not the USA I grew up in.

In Obama's America we are supposed to attack anything that is good and decent. Forget about Constitutions, morals, patriotism and hard work, all bad! It is a Liberals job to make the abnormal normal.

When the Dixie Chicks made their views on President Bush clear, their fans, the public stopped supporting the band. Their popularity immediately nose dived. Radio stations, at the request of former fans stopped playing their music. Due to lack of popularity, concert venues didn't invite them to come play. This was judgement in the court of public opinion.

Chick Fil-A should be granted the same court. If people still like the chain and still eat there, that's their business. If people want to stop supporting the chain and not patronize their restaurant, that's also their business. The alderman needs to let the public play this out. If there is demand for Chick Fil-A in Chicago, they should be allowed to expand their. If the demand isn't there, Chick Fil-A will go away on it's own.

It's not just same-sex marriage. Your harmless purchase of a Chick-fil-A sandwich supports legislation calling for gays to be executed. Chick-fil-A gives to both of these groups:

Exodus International: Exodus International Board Member John Schmierer began his trips to Uganda in 2009, preaching alongside Nazi revisionist Scott Lively, spreading hatred of gay people to the people and leaders of the country. This directly led to their legislation requiring the execution of some gay people.

In Schmierer’s future trips to Uganda, he would whip up anti-gay furor with lies linking homosexuality to child abuse, calling for mandatory “conversion therapy” for homosexuals and any other number of falsehoods he could come up with.

Family Research Council: Not sure where to start. Let’s start with a Tony Perkins quote:

“While activists like to claim that pedophilia is a completely distinct orientation from homosexuality, evidence shows a disproportionate overlap between the two. … It is a homosexual problem.” — Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, FRC website, 2010

There are literally dozens of other moments where FRC and Focus on the Family link homosexuality and pedophilia with zero reputable evidence.

In 2010, The Congress was considering a public condemnation of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays Bill” which would put gay people on trial with a possible death sentence as punishment for homosexuality. Family Research Council spent $25,000 lobbying Congress to not disapprove of this bill.

FRC and FotF have also fought hard against anti-gay adoption laws, so it can safely be said that they would rather see children spend their whole lives in a foster care system than find a forever home.

Seriously, who cares about all of that drivel you just posted? I'm still going to patronize Chick-fil-A, and the more you people publish this crap, the more I'm going to support them.
