Chick-Fil-A From Doing Business

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 6/7/2019 9:16:35 AM

Another city has taken up the torch in the Left's ongoing quest to hound fast-food giant Chick-fil-A."A San Mateo County official is pushing to stop a Chick-fil-A restaurant from opening up in Redwood City," reports CBS Local news. "The McDonald’s restaurant on Whipple could soon be tuning into a Chick-fil-A, making it the chain’s 13th restaurant in the San Francisco Bay Area."San Mateo County supervisor David Canepa told reporters he is seeking to prevent the restaurant from obtaining an "architectural permit" due to its founder, Dan Cathy, previously expressing support for traditional marriage and for donating funds to pro-marriage groups.

I have proof that time travel is absolutely impossible. What is it? Nobody in the history of wagering ever took the insanely long-shot bet that in 2019 a city in California would be trying to keep a restaurant from opening there because the founder expressed the idea that marriage is for a man and a woman. And nobody on September 12, 2001 placed a bet that 8 years later we would elect a President with Hussein in his name... Just think what would happen if California's influence is amplified if that stupid electoral college 'workaround' is implemented.

The owners of Chick-fil-A or any other business have the right to be 'anti' anything they want. Try opening a gay owned business in a Muslim neighborhood and see what happens to you. In that case the gays would be slammed. We are turning into a country of self-righteous fools who think no one's opinion matters but their own.

FTA; "When people think of the Chick-fil-A logo — what they think of is anti-LGBTQ." Really? I think of a good chicken meal and good service. Maybe Canepa would change his mind if outside the restaurant there were used needles and waste.

Simply Amazing! There are two current points of view about what constitutes marriage: 1. Traditional - between a man and a woman, only. 2. Trendy - between whoever wants it. I guarantee No.1 is far, far more supported than No. 2. Yet, these little despots are not happy just to make their case for no. 2, …. no, they have to punish anyone who chooses the other POV.

The funny bunnies really hate those guys - and it is simply because Chick -fil-A gave money to some pro-family charities. Remember the homosexual man who tried to kill all those people at the Family Res. Council? He was carrying Chick-fil-A sandwiches to leave on all the dead bodies.

The Left are so insecure that they blanch when a Christian insists that marriage is for men and women. What a horrible idea. Do they get all exercised when gay people are tossed off rooftops and burned by Muslims? Why not?

Anti Chick-fil-A people continually claim that the company is anti LGTBQ..... Has anyone every asked them what exactly has Chick-fil-A done (besides the owners personal beliefs about marriage) that is discriminatory? They don't turn any customers away, they hire people regardless of sexual orientation, and promote fair business practices. If the LGTBQ mafia wants to discriminate against every business based on the owners personal beliefs, they will be boycotting a lot of businesses.

These virtue signalling morons represent the tiny minority of the perpetually offended. Many homosexual folks who work for Chick-fil-A have spoken about how the company does not discriminate in any way. Many others have said "Lighten up Francis.. it's a chicken sandwich."

We are building a second Chick-fil-A in my home town and there's one at the local university food court. They stay busy all the time. The server who took my order last time I was there, was quite androgynous looking. I still am not sure of the server's sex but he/she but took my order and when I thanked him/her, he/she said it was his/her pleasure. And that's all that matters.

NOTICE to all LGBTQ. Drive around any Chick-Fil-A restaurant and you will find cars bumper to bumper, double lines, all the way around the restaurant. That happens any day and anywhere you go. Except Sunday, which is reserved for worship if they so desire.

My, how they do run with a story - and blow it up into something larger. One San Mateo County official does not want this. Not the entire County; not Redwood City itself. Certainly not the entire state. One man. The Chick-fil-A in nearby Pasadena is located across the street from Pasadena Community College. It was built expecially for Chick-fil-A. It is jammed all the time, the parking lot full. I really loathe misleading reporting.

Working late used to be an occasion to patronize that McD's for its 24-hour drive-thru service. That happens less now than years ago; but should Canepa's effort to block Chick-Fil-A succeed, I guarantee I'll never be seen there again. Should Chick-Fil-A prevail, though, I'll gladly go there even if they don't have the 24-hour service.

Don’t listen to anybody in either party who says we can just go back to what we were doing,” the gay South Bend, Ind. mayor said. “We in the LGBT community know that when we hear phrases like ‘make America great again,’ that that American past was never quite as great as advertised.” Buttigieg often condemns President Trump’s slogan and his glamorization of the past, but the mayor's decision to add criticism of Democrats drew contrast with

The 2020 election is lurching toward us like a malfunctioning robot, and I think we must ask ourselves: Can we risk nominating a man for president? Men selected as major-party nominees for president have failed to win the popular vote 50 percent of the time. Contrast that to the 100 percent of the time that a female nominee for president has won the popular vote. More importantly, are Americans ready to withstand another four years of male presidency? It is unpleasant to traffic in stereotypes, and many men are in no way like this, but recent experience teaches that for usually 31 days a month (sometimes 30, occasionally 28),

The insurer that covers Oberlin College for liability, Lexington Insurance Company, filed documents with court last month indicating that its umbrella liability policy would not cover costs of any judgment for the plaintiffs. That means that if, after the appeals process has run its course, the plaintiffs move to collect the $11 million a jury just awarded them (plus whatever punitive damages – up to $22 more – are awarded next week), Lexington likely won’t pay and Oberlin would have to sue for reimbursement.
