Majority of Americans help Chick-fil-A weather the storm

All Rights Reserved.

The past few days have witnessed an avalanche of attacks against Chick-fil-A’s supportive stance on traditional marriage.  This is despite the fact that a solid majority of Americans oppose gay marriage.

What follows is a summary of some of the most outrageous efforts to hurt Chick-fil-A.


1. New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, a potential NYC mayoral candidate and activist lesbian, attempted to persuade New York University to end all contracts with Chick-fil-A and sent a letter expressing these personal views on official New York City letterhead:

I write as the Speaker of the NYC Council, and on behalf of my family. NYC is a place where we celebrate diversity. We do not believe in denigrating others. We revel in the diversity of all our citizens and their families,” the letter begins.

Let me be clear ‐‐ I do not want establishments in my city that hold such discriminatory views,” Quinn, an open lesbian who recently married her longtime partner, also wrote in the letter. “We are a city that believes our diversity is our greatest strength and we will fight anything and anyone that runs counter to that.

As such I urge you to sever your relationship with the Chick‐fil‐A establishment that exists on your campus.  [read remainder of story HERE]

2. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel shared Council Member Quinn’s criticism of Chick-fil-A in the following public statement:

Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values. They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents.

3. Even though the Berenstain Bears had a signed contract with Chick-fil-A to provide merchandise to the restaurant chain, it also weighed in against traditional marriage.  NBC News reported the Berenstain Bear’s statement:

The Berenstain family does not at this time have control over whether this program proceeds or not,” the statement said. “We hope those concerned about this issue will direct their comments toward HarperCollins and Chick-fil-A.”

For a short time Monday evening, the Berenstain family message was accompanied by a statement from HarperCollins that read: “We have a long history of diversity and inclusiveness and are very disappointed to hear recent statements made by Chick-fil-A. After much consideration, we have decided to honor our previous arrangement, with the chain. We have no plans to work with them in the future.”

4. Then you have Shephard Smith vigorously advocating for gay marriage (again), stating on his nationally broadcast Fox News show that yesterday was the “Day of Intolerance”. Of course, this isn’t the first time that Fox News has shown its bias on the gay marriage topic.  Yesterday, the network falsely described a liberal democrat as a “conservative” who had changed his mind on gay marriage.

But there are some bright points.  Black pastors are becoming increasingly vocal, fighting back against attempts to ban Chick-fil-A from cities, calling such an effort the “same thing” as banning blacks from restaurants.

And it appears that Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day yesterday was a smashing success.

    Yes, Chick-Fil-A’s appreciation day was a SMASHING SUCCESS, but the evil doers on the other side of hell want to smash that statement, so don’t be surprised by upcoming events which are contrary to what we’ve stated to the world about our belief in One man and One woman, so says God! The media control the blitz against Chick-Fil-A’s statement, or should I say their owners statement, and they’ll stop at nothing to bash the majority of Americans who stand behind Traditional and True Marriage Principles. I think Christians should stay in these establishments, especially on Friday, to offset what could be an ugly event.

  • This is proof that Sarah Palin is correct: there is nothing wrong with our country that one honest election wouldn’t cure. True the vote!. Peace,

  • marineh2ominer

    Shepard Smith , himself a sodomist , would be expected to stand up for them , however , the intolerance comes from their side insisting that everyone accepts their perversion even if it is agains their religion .

  • concession

    It is time that Chicago takes a good hard look at Rahm Emmanuel, Since when does he have the right to tell anyone that they are not wanted there, the citizens of Chicago and everyplace in America can make the choices of who they want in their cities, When these people come up for re election they should be voted out, Who are they to dictate what we can or can not do. Obama has started a dictatorship in this country that is bringing out all of the wanna be dictators. America, we can not allow them to suceed. NOVEMBER 2012, *****VOTE THEM OUT***** VOTE CONSERVATIVE!!!!

  • At the advent of the Democrats utopian nightmare, ‘The Great Society’, the Traditional Family was being forced to the back of the bus. The Perpetually Dependency Addicted ‘FERAL’ groups began to Spawn out of control, sustained by the US tax Payers and bankrupting their Social Security Trust, as it was ‘slushed’ into the decadence encouraging, US General Fund. The Liberal Leftists are now relishing in their ‘Progressive’ society, as it bankrupts the greatest nation that Ever existed on earth. A Cancer is only stopped when it runs out of nourishment. Most times ‘Death’ of the host, is that ending of the sustenance. Prayerfully ‘the cure’ is not quite so drastic for the ‘at one time’ great USA? Targeting the root cells of the Cancer, through education, is the Only cure acceptable.
