Traditional Stance

Chick-Fil-A is Anything but Chicken-Hearted

We lend our support to the excellent fast food chain's founders and owners who are standing firm in their right to express their deeply-held convictions according to the dictates of their conscience and financially support others who share those convictions. 

It's crucial to note that the controversy surrounding this particular news story indicates a new development in gay activism. It is that gay activist organizations' tactics have become even more emboldened as to evolve from attacking what they call discriminatory policies and actions to attacking anything they perceive as anti-gay speech, thought, or support. We now see gay activists as the thought and speech police they intend to be. The mere expression of support for traditional morality is being narcissistically twisted and attacked as hateful discrimination against homosexuals. 

The truth is, religious traditional moralists could now say the same thing, that homosexualists are full of hateful discrimination against them. The anti-traditional sexual morality rhetoric toward Chick-Fil-A has certainly been hateful and intolerant. You might call these detractors Christphobes, straight-bashers, or anti-traditional-marriage bigots. Even some gay proponents are saying this is going too far, that in America people should be able to think, share, and encourage what they believe without being harassed or threatened. Yes, but what an understatement! It's an unalienable right, protected by the Constitution!   

But sadly, many unthinking individuals and groups are being taken in by the hyped gay victim mentality which is painting Chick-Fil-A as the bully, when it's actually the other way around. By the way, we at SoL have been the recipients of an email sent to us by Wayne Besen, a prominent gay activist who recently appeared on the O'Reilly Factor at Fox News browbeating Chick-Fil-A. This email, from a perfect stranger to us, is the most vile personal attack we have ever received, so sick and blasphemous we cannot repeat it. Everyone should now know who is really bullying whom.                

A grateful thank you to the Truett Cathy family, for taking a stand for our precious First Amendment freedoms. Obviously, in this secular, gay-affirming culture, those who believe in traditional values will lose these freedoms unless more of us begin exercising them. 

Eat at Chick-Fil-A today, August 1, 2012, designated as Chick-Fil-A Day by Mike Huckabee and others, or better yet, go there and enjoy their good food and service often. It's reported that this controversy has been great for business! There are more of us than there are of them, if we'll only speak up!
