Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost

The recent liberal furor over the Chick-fil-A CEO’s support of traditional marriage may prove to be another case of the bullies pushing a little too hard for real America to take. When mayors of big cities like Boston and Chicago try to dictate to a business where they can and cannot locate, simply based on the CEO’s beliefs, it seems like the public at large is not going to support that behavior. Even the ever-politically-correct Muppets owners might just lose some viewership based on their obviously intolerant view of Christianity. At some point, the gay lobby is going to have to realize that they are not as powerful as they would like to think. Someone just needs to stand up and have the guts to point that out.
That someone might just be former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, a former Baptist minister who is not ashamed to proclaim his Christian beliefs. In a recent article, Huckabee declared this coming Wednesday "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" to support a business "whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values."
If the Chick-fil-A fiasco does nothing else, it should provide a convincing case of who the real “haters” are out there. Can anyone say “projection” to someone like Roseanne Barr, whose profanity-laced diatribe against the restaurant chain must have even embarrassed some liberals. Barr and other so-called “comedians” like Kathy Griffin use hate speech against conservatives and Christians with relative impunity. As Mark Levin noted on his show recently, Griffin’s over-the-top insults directed at Sarah Palin’s teen-age daughter Willow should not be allowed to stand without repercussions. Neither should Barr’s out-of-line smears of Chick-fil-A.
I do not have a Chick-fil-A where I live, but I’m hoping that this momentary crisis will result in record profits and expansion for this company that God is apparently already blessing, so that someday their restaurants will be thriving in my part of the country as well as nationwide.
