Chick-Fil-A on Townhall

Casey Mattox - Sat Aug 18

That is the breadth and scope of the religious liberty you believe ought to be respected? Do you believe religious liberty stops where Planned Parenthood’s financial needs begin? Should Americans be forced to pay for that which violates their conscience and the tenets of their faith? ... more

Floyd Corkins, a volunteer for the last six months at the D.C. Center for the LGBT Community, marched into the Family Research Center with a gun and serious ammunition, denounced FRC's policy positions and shot a security guard in the arm before being subdued. Another hate crime, but this time against, perhaps, the pre-eminent pro-family organization in America. CBS gave the story 20 seconds. NBC spent 17 seconds. ... more

Why do people run for office? Too many, it seems, do it for the sheer joy of throwing their weight—and other people’s money—around. Thus we have, at the local level, the sorry spectacle of tin pot politicians—apparently offended at the idea of traditional marriage—threatening to ban Chick-fil-A restaurant openings. ... more

Sex is always interesting, but mix it with politics in a presidential campaign and it becomes downright sensational. First Amendment guarantees of free speech get lost in the protest when gay couples meet to make out at Chick-fil-A. Instead of ordering the spicy chicken sandwich, these men and men and women and women spice up their relationship with rage against Dan Cathy, the born-again president of Chick-fil-A, for saying he supports "the biblical definition of the family unit." ... more

For 40 years, the academic left has taught that reality is socially constructed, preferably by the left for the left. ... more

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently said of the Chick-fil-A fast-food franchise that "Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago's values." Why? Because Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is on record as being opposed to gay marriage -- as is close to half the U.S. population, according to polls. The mayors of Boston and San Francisco also suggested that the company isn't welcome in their cities. ... more

Dan Cathy, President of Chick-fil-A, probably did not expect to be at the center of the storm of the gay marriage debate, but his company proved an unexpected financial beneficiary of the controversy ... more

The faux outrage over Chick-fil-a's stance on gay marriage has moved to my little campus of UNCW. ... more

Tom Tancredo - Tue Aug 7

By now, anyone half-awake has heard about the Chick-fil-A controversy. What you may not have heard is that the survival of the Chick-fil-A company in the face of an all-out boycott campaign conducted by the allied forces of political correctness spells trouble for President Obama. ... more

Paul Rondeau - Tue Aug 7

The mayors of Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. are publically threatening Chick-fil-A, telling them they are not welcome to expand in “their” cities because CEO Dan Cathy does not support same-sex marriage. Edwin Lee, mayor of San Francisco, even tweeted a threat: “Closest #ChickFilA to San Francisco is 40 miles away & I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer.” ... more

It's amazing what you can get used to. Looking back a few years, the unemployment rate in April 2004 was 5.6 percent when presidential candidate John Kerry announced that then-President George W. Bush sported “the worst economic record since the Hoover administration.” ... more

The Democratic mayors of Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. gave Mitt Romney and the Republican Party the greatest gift possible. ... more

A couple of weeks ago, on July 17, the Scouts released a two-year study whose conclusion was that it’s still not a good idea to put males who sexually desire other males into the Scouts as either role models or members. ... more

Michael Barone - Mon Aug 6

But there's a pattern here that the big liberal press has been reluctant to recognize: Candidates from the GOP establishment are getting knocked off by challengers with less name recognition, far less money and the support of the tea party movement. The tea party was supposed to be dead and gone, you know. ... more

Well, the anti-Chick-fil-A thing sort of backfired, now didn’t it? ... more

Derek Hunter - Sun Aug 5

Every attempt to find the dumbest thing in liberal world this week just led to another, and another, each dumber than the last. Picking just one to rant about became a task of epic proportions, so two of them it is. ... more

Ed Feulner - Fri Aug 3

Dan Cathy could have saved his company, Chick-Fil-A, a lot of trouble. All he had to do was keep his views about family to himself. Instead, he answered a question honestly. In a recent media interview, the company’s president and COO said what he believes and why he believes it. But his politically incorrect views are intolerable, judging from the anger of many on the left, including several big-city officials who are dead-set against his views. ... more
