In Solidarity with Chick-fil-A (Why Not Boycott Anti-Gay Mosques?); Plus the Chick-fil-A Music VIDEO
When I read that Target began carrying gay wedding cards, I didn’t boycott the stores or call on my readers to do so or even write about it on this site. When I learned that J.C. Penney recently featured a gay couple on the cover of a catalog, I didn’t tell readers, “Don’t shop at J.C. Penney.” Both of these companies heavily promoted their gay-marriage-friendliness to the Wall Street Journal and elsewhere, and no one called for them to go out of business or be restricted by government. And, yet, Gays–who push this kind of in-your-face marketing pushing their agenda, are the most intolerant group (other than Muslims) when it comes to those who take a different tack. Thus, the outrage over Chick-fil-A, the fast food chicken purveyor, the owner of which voiced his opposition to gay marriage. This is, after all, a very Christian organization. Like Hobby Lobby, it’s closed on Sundays. It would be nuts for gays to expect a different position on gay marriage.
As a proudly observant kosher Jew, my religion restricts me from eating there, but if I did not keep kosher, I would eat at Chick-fil-A (if they had any in the Detroit area) in solidarity with the restaurant, since it’s under withering unconstitutional attack by elected officials in various American municipalities. And because, in response, this is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
I have to ask gays, yet again, as I’ve frequently done on this site, if you’re going to boycott Chick-Fil-A, why are you still so friendly with mosques? As I’ve, time and again, pointed out, mosques worked fervently to defeat gay marriage in California. And Islam punishes gays, legally married or not, with execution. And, yet, there is not Chick-Fil-A style boycott of mosques or Muslims. In fact, the gay community continues to tiptoe around this issue (while attacking Mormons and Mormon churches), gingerly continuing to ally with Muslim communities around America.
Chick-Fil-A is different only because it is a Christian company, with a devout Christian chief. And gays hate Christians with a passion, even though organized Christianity throughout America (other than some fringe groups that aren’t really Christian) does not call for the death penalty for gays, as Muslims exact on gays around the world every single day.
What’s going on here is hypocrisy. Gays want J.C. Penney and Target to push homosexuality in the most innocent of places where kids can and will be exposed. And yet when a restaurant chief practices the most American of activities–exercising his First Amendment rights and expressing his opinion against gay marriage, the attitude is “let’s put him out of business.”
It’s funny how Americans, including and especially gays, are noticeably lethargic and devoid of passion when, for example, a company exec praises and/or embraces Islam, the religion of gay mass execution and 9/11 slaughters of 3,000 Americans and Fort Hood massacres.
So, I recommend to my non-Jewish readers (who are not kosher) to eat at Chick-fil-A today to show support for the restaurant and the American way of life. The joke is already on the movement of gay militants, who’ve provided Chick-fil-A with long waits at restaurants across America today, and more money in their coffers.
Watch the video above, sent to me by reader Nancy. I normally don’t like parody songs, but as they go, this one, by Tim Hawkins, is not bad. (But it’s not as funny as the audience finds it–let’s be honest.)
