The Radical Left Hates Chicken
Michelle Malkin's column today,informs her readers of the war that is being waged by left wing homosexual advocacy groups against Chick-Fila and other christian owned business's.From Michelle's column:
Over the past month, several progressive activist blogs have waged an ugly war against Chick-Fil-A. The company’s alleged atrocity: One of its independent outlets in Pennsylvania donated some sandwiches and brownies to a marriage seminar run by the Pennsylvania Family Institute, which happens to oppose same-sex marriage.
In the name of tolerance, the anti-Chick-Fil-A hawks sneered at the company’s main product as “Jesus Chicken,” derided its no-Sunday work policy, and attacked its operators as “anti-gay.” Michael Jones, who describes himself as having “worked in the field of human rights communications for a decade, most recently for Harvard Law School,” launched an online petition drive at www.change.org “demanding” that the company disavow “extreme anti-gay groups.” Facebook users dutifully organized witch hunt drives against the company on college campuses.
The original Chick -Fila was founded by Truett Cathy in Hapeville Ga in 1947 and to say that it is an institution on the southside of Atlanta is an understatement.Any and everyone who has lived on the southside Atlanta has visited the original Dwarf House.Some of my fondness memories,as child,was going there with my Daddy on a Saturdays afternoon,primarly to see the seven dwarf's clock they have there on the wall.
Truett Cathy is a blessing and a benefactor to the whole community here in Georgia and his"good works"are to numerous to be mentioned.
We as Americans shouldn't let these radical groups succeed in their attempts to harm this business.We should all visit a Dwarf House,Truett's Grill,or a Chick-Fila in a mall and support this fine institution with our business.
