Mayor Menino on Chick-fil-A: Stuff it
Vows to block eatery over anti-gay attitude. By Greg Turner Friday, July 20, 2012
“Mayor Thomas M. Menino is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from bringing its Southern-fried fast-food empire to Boston — possibly to a popular tourist spot just steps from the Freedom Trail — after the family-owned firm’s president suggested gay marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.” “Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion,” Menino told the Herald yesterday. “That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”
“Chick-fil-A has been swept up in a growing national controversy over company president Dan Cathy’s remarks questioning gay marriage and lauding the traditional family. Chick-fil-A did not respond to multiple requests for comment. But the company released a statement yesterday saying it has a history of applying “biblically-based principles” to managing its business, such as closing on Sundays, and it insisted it does not discriminate.
“It doesn’t send the right message to the country,” Menino said. “We’re a leader when it comes to social justice and opportunities for all.”
If you are a liberal, my little lesson here, overly simplistic, will likely not sink in. Why? Because you are in a cult, and part of maintaining a cult is the development in your minions of reflexive ways of fending of reasonable, obvious, but contrary information.
If you are breaking from the cult, or not quite firmly indoctrinated, maybe this post will help put a crack in the cult edifince being built in your mind by the marxists. Here it is:
Where is the discrimination?
Review the article. An editor at Boston Herald did. After some journalism grad did.
Now, your turn. Where is the discrimination?
If I walked in to a Chik-Fil-A, and told them I was a same-sex advocate and an engager of same-sex private activity, would they sell me a waffle fry?
I have to add to the scenario: And I pay the face price, in U.S. currency.
Yes. I will get my waffle fry. I walked in, ordered, and paid.
Did you catch that? No?
The guy who runs the company is a plain, normal, Bible-believing Christian. As such, Karl Marx hates him, and so do you. Why? You don’t quite know why you and all of your Democrat friends talk so badly about Christians when you get together. In fact, you guys are obsessed with talking bad about Christians. be honest. I know. I have been in those conversations, possibly with you, specifically.
We exempt our family members, and those of our friends. Oh, my parents are not the Christians we democrats are talking bad about. My parents, or my buddy’s parents, are decent people. They are not quite hard core.
Yes they are, They are just wiser than you, and they are more patient.
The Chik-Fil-A guy is not “discriminating.” He does not “hate” anybody.
If he does, he knows he is doing this in contradiction of his religious beliefs.
You are the hater. you discriminate. Have you avoided Chik-Fil-A due to the owner’s religious views?
Has Mayor Menino banned Samuel Adams beer, due to Sam Adams’ strong Christian beliefs?
