The inglorious surrender of Chick-Fil-A

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 11/25/2019 6:01:13 AM

The left has acquired yet another stuffed head to place upon its trophy wall. I speak of course of the capitulation of the fried poultry dispenser that is Chick-Fil-A. Effective immediately, Chick-Fil-A will no longer be dispensing charitable funds towards organizations of a distinctly Christian character who oppose homosexual marriage such as the Salvation Army or the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. This was the sort of rupture that the left has sought from Chick-Fil-A for years. There have been ridiculous attempts by a few on the right to lessen the blow of this humiliating surrender by pretending that this is something other than what it clearly is: a cultural defeat.

He's right. Doubly sad that it had to happen in bell-ringing season.

Not necessarily a great business move. You just insulted the core of your customer base that helped you get to where you are. Best of luck with that one buddy!

I suspect, #4, that the "chirpings" became marketing strategy as the company grew and eventually met resistance, and now CFA is just another business.

First of all, I loved Chickfila for their Food Quality, Professional Personnel, and Civic Responsibility. However, the Company is transitioning into a Standard Big Company driven more by Financial Employees, Accountants etc. It is “Not the Same Chickfila” as created by it’s Founder. Their Food Quality has degraded and Proportions are smaller. Recently, my son brought a Chickfila Lunch Sandwich. Upon opening the Sandwich, it appeared the Chicken inside was about 1/2 serving. It concerned me so much, I called Chickfila Corporate to ask if they were changing Standards as there is lots of new competition coming online. The call was taken by normal “Corporate QA Personnel” who went through all sorts of flimsy excuses. I offered her Cell Phone Photos, which she refused, then she gave me the Store Manager number. I called him wherein he did receive the photo, but also made all sorts of excuses about different meat suppliers etc. He did send a couple of Gift Cards, but that doesn't solve the larger problem. Chickfila is changing as a company. I truly regret that because they once were superlative. Now, on occasion, when we wish to buy a quality sandwich, we shop around more carefully. SUCH A SHAME !

It's important to be clear on what is WRONG with this. Charity comes with appreciation, not expectation. It's not that. It's Chick-Fil-A's slandering of the Salvation Army as their reason for eliminating their contribution. The Gay community hates Christian Churches because God makes it clear that homosexual sex is wrong, bad, terrible, and... just don't. They don't want to hear about forgiveness or "hate the sin, love the sinner". They want to force your to celebrate their sin. Ok, they have the right to say what they want, but Chick-Fil-A has provided the megaphone to slander this fine organization with impunity.

They'll be getting a message from the rest of us... as well as learning a few lessons on their own. But all is not lost. Remember Brendan Eich? Got kicked out of Mozilla Firefox when (expletives here) subordinates found out that he had made a donation in support of a traditional marriage referendum in Calif. He has a new browser on the market, Brave. Sure, it took awhile. But it won't report on your searches like Chrome and it isn't politically correct like Firefox. Here's hoping Chik Fil A finds a solution, too.

It was only a matter of time. Once people like the family that owns Chik-fil-A accumulate a certain amount of money, it becomes more important than principles, philosophy, charity and good sense. In what was an obvious move to attempt to placate the constant badgering from atheists and lawsuits they gave an inch and now the leftist goons want more. Surprise! The only event left to report will be the abandonment by long time customers and the "unexpected" drop in sales.

Chick-Fil-A has shown itself self to be nothing more than a phony hypocritical organization who if they had once ounce of faith like Job would have told these practitioners of degeneracy to seek forgiveness. Don't try and pretend that you are Jesus walking into Matthews house, a den of inequity, to save souls. You set up your stand with the money changers at the temple and disgraced your soul. You spat in the face of the faithful and stood with your brother Lucifer.

Black and Hispanic voters are not onboard with the Democrat impeachment train. According to Breitbart News, support for this all-white Democrat hobbyhorse project has collapsed: A recent national poll released by Emerson College indicates that black Americans, a key constituency of the Democrat Party, narrowly opposes Trump’s impeachment. The poll found that 38 percent of black voters are opposed, while 37 percent are in favor, with 25 percent unsure. Hispanic voters, meanwhile, were only narrowly in favor of impeachment, 48 percent to 41 percent, with 11 percent unsure. The Emerson poll also found 48 percent of white voters nationally were opposed to impeaching Trump, while 44 percent were supportive.

Well gee: The impeachment hearings are apparently all wrapped up with Impeachment-master Rep. Adam Schiff preparing his report to the House Judiciary Committee. It's a done deal. Game over. Clear as day. Even Peggy Noonan herself said so. Except that with all this grand showcasing and unity talk, Democrats are now ... heading for the hills. Here's a bad one, at least, from the Democrat point of view: Michigan Democratic Rep.

President Donald Trump signed H.R. 724 on Monday, a bill criminalizing animal abuse and the creation and distribution of pictures and videos of animal torture. “It is important that we combat these heinous and sadistic acts of cruelty, which are totally unacceptable in a civilized society,” Trump said as he signed the Protect Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT). The president was joined by a number of animal non-profit activist representatives from the Humane Society, Animal Wellness Action, Big Dog Ranch Rescue, the National Animal Care and Control Association, and the Warrior Dog Foundation. “From battlefields to hospitals, from the ranches of the frontier to the backyards of America,

Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, vowed to challenge CNN and The Daily Beast in federal court for reportage that tied him to a meeting with the Ukrainians. Nunes told host Sean Hannity that he predicted those two outlets would “run for cover.” However, he pledged to continue his quest until those outlets were held to account. “Like we’ve seen so many times over the last three years, every time House Republicans on the Intelligence Committee come up with real information and put it out there, what do they do?” he said. “They smear the messenger.

Yet another staffer for Rep. Adam Schiff served as a fellow for the Atlantic Council, a think tank that is funded by and works in partnership with Burisma, the natural gas company at the center of allegations regarding Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Sean Misko has been described as “close friends” with Eric Ciaramella, whom Real Clear Investigations suggests is the likely so-called whistleblower. Misko reportedly joined Schiff’s staff at the House Intelligence Committee in August – the same month the so-called whistleblower’s complaint was filed after first reportedly interfacing with a staffer for Schiff’s office. Misko in 2015 was a yearlong “Millennium Fellow” at the

On Monday, November 25, FrontPage Mag ran "Horowitz Video: How America is a Christian Idea." It's a couple of videos of the great David Horowitz, author of Radical Son. The first video is a short clip from the longer second video, which is about 25 minutes in length and archived at Vimeo. What makes the video so compelling is the fact that Horowitz is not a Christian; he's an agnostic. But he's also a fearless thinker. He dilates on "the priesthood of all believers" and how that principle is woven into our founding.

People are gradually getting used to living in an inverted world. For the first time in our history, the upcoming elections are not about a better standard of living or more freedom. They are about secular pietism, a collective devotion to an apparently noble cause, which leads to less affluence and freedom. Illegal immigration has a negative impact on the labor market, especially low-income Americans, by keeping wages down. Nevertheless, half of our fellow citizens believe that any action taken against illegals is tantamount to sending them to concentration camps.

If anything has become crystal-clear this year through all the interminable, pointless, never-ending Democratic Free-a-Thons (one can hardly call them "debates"), it's this: The Democrats are totally and absolutely a party focused solely on identity politics and a party not at all concerned with the greater, general good of the country. Their electoral strategy is based on identifying specific groups of voters to whom they can assign victimhood status and then promise a taxpayer-funded government program to alleviate their suffering and correct the wrongs perpetrated against them.

It endangers our national security. This Ukrainian theory is one of the central tenets and tropes of Russian propaganda and disinformation.”

It was just last year when the American Music Awards hit its previous record low, with a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 advertiser-coveted age demo. This year that number dropped to 1.7. Good heavens, the AMAs can’t even attract young people. And this year’s performances saw one woke showcase after another. Last year, 6.585 million total viewers tuned, in.

Paris - The United States and Europe bear more than half the cost of repairing the damage already wrought by climate change, a coalition of environmental groups said Monday. Based on their historic greenhouse gas emissions, the US and EU should be held jointly responsible for 54 percent of funding owed to developing nations already dealing with extreme flooding, droughts and megastorms rendered more frequent and intense by global warming, the groups said.

Gender transition can leave transgender people in a bit of a bind about their sexual desirability. While a transgender female may look, act, and feel masculine and exhibit male tendencies, she is just as female as any other female. If she is interested in either gay men or straight women, she could find herself perpetually attracted to individuals who are not going to be interested in her simply because of her vagina. The same holds true for transgender men who have retained their penises. If they are into lesbian women or straight men, those two demographics will most likely be turned off by their body parts.

That’s based on the simple reality that failing to do so at this point would cost Democrats more politically than proceeding with impeachment would. Voters who hate Trump would be furious and voters who like Trump wouldn’t give Pelosi and Schiff an ounce of credit for standing down in the end. The president would gloat about it every day unto eternity. Pelosi, long respected by both sides for her ability to whip votes, would be humiliated utterly.

On July 25, 2019, President Donald Trump picked up the phone in the White House residence and attempted to shake down a foreign leader. Trump’s language was elliptical and soft, not direct and threatening, but his intentions were clear: He wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to “do us a favor.” That was Trump’s entree to his improper, indecent requests that Zelenskiy’s government undertake two investigations that would benefit Trump politically. Trump didn’t explain his motives, which of course were self-serving. First, he asked Zelenskiy to “find out what happened” with Ukraine’s supposed meddling, alongside Russia, in the 2016 U.S. election. Then there was Trump’s “other thing”: his desire that Ukraine “look into”
