Many of you have now heard of the latest round in the tolerance brigade’s declaration of war on anyone and anything which dares to affirm heterosexual marriage and resist the militant homosexual lobby. The American fast-food chain Chick-fil-A is now subject to their wrath and vilification for this very thing.
And worse yet, this chain is headed up by a Christian – no wonder why the haters are foaming at the mouth here. The homosexual activists and the secular left have gone completely ballistic on this one, showing that fascism, not freedom, is what they are really all about.
The by now mandatory calls for a boycott have just been the beginning. Radical lefty politicians have also turned this into a personal crusade, declaring their contempt of faith, freedom, marriage and family. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino for example incredibly said he would do all he can to keep Chick-fil-A out of Boston. Imagine that!
Other political jackboots have followed suit. Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel also said he would make life hell for the Christian company: “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values. They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”
Absolutely mind-boggling. Christian values, marriage and family, the wellbeing of children – this mayor says he despises all of this and wants nothing to do with it. Perhaps we should not be surprised, since another famous politician who shares this hate – Barack Obama – also hails from Illinois.
Not only is this an utter inversion of all that is good and decent, but it is scandalous that private businesses are now the target of government vendettas. This madness led former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee to take a strong stance for the persecuted group.
Huckabee said: “The Mayor of Boston says he won’t allow Chick-Fil-A in Boston. Amazing that a mayor now has the power to stop commerce because he personally disagrees with the personal views of the CEO of a company.” Quite right.
There are other great examples of acceptance and true diversity here. Consider the Jim Henson Company: it is withholding its Muppets children’s toys from Chick-fil-A. The company said via Facebook, “The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors.”
It is hard to comprehend just how much hatred is being generated here. Go to any website by the militants and you will see stuff there that will make your hair curl. For example, actress and radical lefty Roseanne Barr showed her true loving and tolerant colours by offering this bit of sweetness: “anyone that eats S***fil-A deserves to get cancer”.
Wow, what a loving and accepting bunch. It sure is a good thing these guys are so into diversity and acceptance – just imagine if they weren’t. Ya gotta love all the tolerance and love that just oozes out of their every pore. You can just feel the love big time.
But all this hate and poison has not deterred the company. Its CEO, Dan Cathy, said he will continue to uphold the Biblical view of marriage. When asked about this he said he was “guilty as charged”. He would not back down an inch despite all the abuse, bile and pure hate he was receiving:
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that,” he said in the interview. “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”
Michelle Malkin offers a bit of sanity on all this, especially on the city boycotts: ” It’s one thing for Hollywood moppets and television Muppets to protest Chick-fil-A over the fast-food chain president’s support for traditional marriage. They’re private citizens and entities. But when an elected public official wields the club of government against a Christian business in the name of ‘tolerance,’ it’s not harmless kid stuff. It’s chilling.”
She continues: “As I reported last year, the Cathy family’s commitments to ‘glorify God’ and ‘enrich the lives of everyone we touch’ have made them public enemies of the progressive left. Never mind that the company’s community service initiatives have supported foster care, summer camp scholarships and marriage enrichment. Never mind Chick-fil-A’s family-strengthening and faith-enhancing decision to forgo profits and close every Sunday to give workers a day of worship and rest.
“Anti-Christian organizers have been staging boycotts and smear campaigns against ‘anti-gay’ Chick-fil-A for the past year. An activist lesbian reporter for The New York Times poured fuel on the fire. The proprietors of The Muppets are just the latest to take a public stand.
“It’s their right. It’s also the right of Chick-fil-A supporters to organize social media campaigns, exercise their free speech and exercise the power of their pocketbooks to back the company.
“What’s disturbing is the flippant schadenfreude with which Tinseltown starlets such as actress Eliza Dushku are cheering Menino’s threat to Chick-fil-A’s First Amendment rights. ‘That’s right, B!’ she tweeted along with a link to Menino’s attack. What’s galling is the self-serving smugness of PC police such as Menino, who defended his vendetta against Chick-fil-A by bragging, ‘We’re a leader when it comes to social justice and opportunities for all.’
“Social justice and economic opportunity ‘for all’ — as long as you hold the proper political and social views. This is ugly repressive civility enforced with government brass knuckles. Boston’s Founding Fathers must be steaming in their graves.”
Yes quite right. This is war alright. But not just an ideological war. It is ultimately a spiritual war – nothing else could explain the horrendous hate and ugliness emanating from the tolerance brigade. Satan hated Jesus Christ so much he stirred the masses to crucify him.
And he is still at work today, stirring up all the usual suspects to pour out their hatred and contempt on any Christian who dares to publically stand up for his own faith and dare to defy the homosexual mafia.
