Restaurant Chain Attacked for Marriage Stance

The fast food chain Chick-Fil-A is under attack from the entire Liberal/Progressive spectrum. It's crime? Their President indicated he did not believe in something that by its very nature does not exist.

"Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press this week that his privately owned company is “guilty as charged” in support of what he called the biblical definition of the family."

People seem to forget that marriage existed long before the first government, tribal committee, or any other administrative body came into existence. Marriage is an institution governed by the Natural Law. That being the case, no government, be it national, local, or worldwide, has ever possessed the authority to define marriage to be anything other than a bond between a man and a woman. Utilizing legislation to play-act having the authority to lend official recognition to fake marriages ultimately erodes the integrity of the State.

We are living in a totalitarian world in which, although free speech has not officially been suppressed, that right is being squashed in an entirely different manner. Instead of fines and jail time, anyone who speaks their mind, particularly if what they say happens to be true, is demonized. They are called hate-mongers, fascists, ignorant, what have you.

In Boston, the Mayor, demonstrating the armament and will of the Leftist-minded camp, has threatened to withhold building and/or occupancy permits for any restaurants that the chain seeks to build in that city. Even after the Company issued a clarification of their policy that indicated that the their President's views were not identical to the organization as a whole, that was not enough for the Acalde of Boston. He apparently wanted the President to either beg for mercy or have him sacked by the Company.

“If they need licenses in the city, it will be very difficult — unless they open up their policies,” he threatened."

In a city that saw some of the earliest and most severe acts of defiance against governmental tyranny, the oppression is now coming both from the local government and the mob. 

This is the spin that the mayor, in an effort to wrest the Liberty card from Chick-Fill-A, put on their despotic acts:

" '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,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino told the Boston Herald Thursday.

“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,” he added."

This is how it is done in the modern world. If you stand up for what is right, you won't go to jail, be fined, or even see a judge. You will, though, be eviscerated by the mob and have obstacles put in your way by the Liberal establishment if you dare say what is on your mind. You will face boycotts and picket lines. While any radical gay, Leftist, Atheist, or any other individual who detests the culture on which our society is based is allowed to say anything that he wants, however vulgar and mean-spirited it may be, the rest of the population is supposed to keep their traps shut and meekly accept the place now allotted to them. 

I will not do so.

This is just another version of Totalitarianism. It just comes in a softer package, albeit a more insidious and moronic one, than those of Stalin, Mao, & Co.

I will go on Chick-Fil-A's Facebook page and their Company website to show my support for their stand. Whether or not you would have said what their President did, they will someday come after you when the time comes to speak your mind. Carrie Prejean and Chick-Fil-A are not isolated incidents; their experiences are fast becoming the norm. The plan of the Left is to silence all who do not adhere to their agenda of wrecking the place and reducing our society to a pile of ashes.

Free speech is more than being free of criminal charges, the right to publicly profess your views without fear of intimidation is just as important.
