… the sexual revolution is now well into its totalitarian phase. Boston mayor Thomas Menino gives us another particularly telling example: Mayor Menino is intent on making sure Chick-fil-A can’t do business in his town. Why? Because Chick-fil-A executives support the traditional family.
Let’s be clear about the mayor’s intent. No one has credibly accused Chick-fil-A of discrimination in employment or in it services. Every customer gets served, regardless of sex, race, creed, sexual orientation, or any other factor. Chick-fil-A stores comply with all applicable local, state, and federal nondiscrimination laws [and also with the laws of deliciousness – j]. Yet the mayor believes the business has no place in his town because of the constitutionally protected speech, ideas, and gifts of its executives and leaders.
Dear gay marriage activists, I’m sure you don’t want any advice from me, but I’m telling you again, you don’t want this fight. You underestimate the love of a hungry people for their chicken biscuits at your peril.
Update: Oh, for crying out loud. Not the Muppets:
The fallout from Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s comments supporting traditional marriage last week only seems to be intensifying. The Jim Henson Company, a popular children’s entertainment group, is taking a strong stance against the fast food chain. Rather than holding on to monies gained from a partnership that was struck with Chick-fil-A, The Jim Henson company is donating earnings to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
…The company also reiterated its wish to cut off all ties with Chick-fil-A, claiming that any and all partnerships are now off the table.
You guys are just going to force me to go to Chick-Fil-A a whole lot more, which would totally be a brutal sacrifice, on my part.
