Cowardice and Capitulation:
The Shocking Things Chick-fil-A Funds

Original Article

Posted By: DanvilleBill, 11/26/2019 6:43:57 PM

There’s a lot of talk about Chick-fil-A. Most of it is generated by the #fakenews establishment that wants nothing more than to demonize an organization that, historically, has publicly professed its Christian faith that is inseparable from its business practices. “[We are] based on biblical principles, asking God and pleading with God to give us wisdom on decisions we make about people and the programs and partnerships we have. And He has blessed us."

Never tried this place. Guess I never will. Dropping it's support for the venerable Salvation Army was it for me.

Guess I’m not just not going to go out of my way to go to CFA. I won’t be going at all. Hypocrites.

When you compromise your stated values for 30 pieces of silver then you are willing to do and say anything to justify your dramatic turn to the left. Truett Cathy would have NEVER done so. Ol' Dan and his crew are willing to do anything while professing to Franklin Graham that nothing has changed. Seems like the Bible has a similar story!!

Wow, that is about the most depressing thing I have read in, well ever!!!!! I actually remember when Covenant House was actually a faith-based organization that lived by Christian principals to help homeless kids. But lie-beralism destroys everything it touches, and those Christian values and principals long ago disappeared!!!

In an earlier life, I handled the budget for a multi-billion construction project. The contractors had charity budgets and were quite open about how they used the money to pay off the various little interest groups to keep them from making trouble. They talked about how the groups were like children - making sure that no one got more money than they did, and wanting what other groups got. Sickening. No different from the mafia and their protection money. NASCAR paid off Jesse Jacking and his Rainbow Coalition the same way.

Mike Huckabee had the best quotes on the Chick-fil-A debacle. We have loved and supported the Cathys, but this looks like they have sunk to just another chicken joint. It's just a matter of time until they decide to start opening on Sundays. I do believe that they have been blessed because of their faithfulness, but apparently Dan Cathy has left behind the faithfulness of Truett. Very sad.

In my more cynical days, I noticed that those who profess their Christian faith the loudest acted like it only as long as it was good for business. The second it became more profitable to be a scoundrel, down came the crosses and the fish.

Had a Popeyes chicken sandwich for lunch today. All I can say is, it was awesome, the store was clean and the staff friendly and outgoing. Downside, the place was really busy and so the wait was a bit long, but not overly so!

Wow! About an hour ago we were driving by a chick fil A discussing whether we wanted to eat there. We don’t have one in our town but are visiting our daughter We weren’t really sure since we all new about the Salvation Army diss. Luckily it was closed. Probably the 22 inches of snow we had in Boulder (clearly a global warming thing). I had no idea exactly how far left they have been moving.

Because of the change, CFA is now just another in our choice list of fast food restaurants. It is equal to the others now in our mind (except for McDonald's, which I dislike). We used to get food from CFA about every ten days. We haven't been there since the announcement was made. It is just not the same.

Who ever made the decision at CFA to cave to the anti God crowd should be fired and replaced with someone who has a set and then publicly announce they they are going to reverse the decision to sell out to people who still aren't going to set foot in a CFA.

Perhaps the shift came because Chick-fil-A got drunk on the huge surge in profits from becoming Conservatives' poster child. And their primary aim shifted from stability of principles, to stability of profits. Seeking to sustain profits, they capitulated to those who sought to damage their profitability, failing to recognize that those groups never forgive. And in the Quixotic chase to become affirmed by those who hate them, they will become even more 'Progressive' than the Left (who would still hate them, even if they became Gay-fil-A).

Hatred makes you crazy. There is perhaps no surer example of this principle than Never Trump stalwart Bill Kristol. Early Monday morning, he tweeted that another four years of Donald Trump would be more dangerous for free markets than four years of Elizabeth Warren as president. Not that Warren is anywhere near his first pick... "I very much prefer Biden or Buttigieg or Bloomberg or Klobuchar to Warren. But the idea that one term of Warren would pose anything like the threat of a second term for Trump to the basic norms and institutions of our liberal democracy, including to free markets, is laughable," Kristol insisted.
One Week After NFL Workout,

Last Saturday, the NFL’s most controversial quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, participated in a workout to try to spark interest in his employment. So far, no NFL team has reached out to him about a potential job. Kaepernick has been unemployed for three years. He led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and did quite well as quarterback in 2013, but then his career started to wane. In 2016 he started kneeling during the national anthem as a protest of police brutality. His move angered fans but delighted political pundits who loved his anti-America message. Kaepernick was on his way out of the NFL

When it comes to politics, these guys are dropping the ball! More than a quarter of men in the US would rather their favorite football team win the Super Bowl than their preferred candidate win the presidency, a new poll shows. In a phone survey of 712 adults, 28 percent of guys admitted to caring more about the big game than the next leader of the free world, according to a press release from Seton Hall Sports Polls. Women, by contrast, tackled the question with more of a world view — with only 11 percent saying they’d rather their team score a championship.

Real Clear Investigations has published a report about the anti-Trump wheelings and dealings of John Brennan, former director of the CIA. The investigation makes me, and others, wonder whether Brennan is has led the anti-Trump coup from the start. "Nearly three years later, as the public awaits answers from two Justice Department inquiries into the Trump-Russia probe’s origins, and as impeachment hearings catalyzed by a Brennan-hired anti-Trump CIA analyst unfold in Congress, it is clear that Brennan’s role in propagating the collusion narrative went far beyond his work on the ICA," Real Clear Investigations reports.

President Donald Trump is simply not given the credit by a mostly antagonistic media for the things he has achieved, from helping to build an incredible economy to actually taking concrete and substantive steps to further American interests on other domestic and foreign policy. But in a case of very interesting timing, he just got some important praise from a very unexpected source, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) the vice-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Warner was being interviewed on PBS’ “Firing Line” with Margaret Hoover on Friday when he gave Trump credit for allowing the U.S. to “punch back”

Forget whether the math works. (It doesn’t.) Expecting billionaires to pay for all the nice things is bad for democracy. One of the more exhausting rituals of presidential campaign season is the effort to make every new proposal “add up.” Sure, it’s better that politicians try to come up with a plan to pay for their wish lists. The problem is that the explanations are often a disguise that make the impossible seem possible, even practical. Fake budgets are the tribute that pandering pays to pragmatism. You could confiscate the wealth of every billionaire and centimillionaire in the country and it wouldn’t come close to paying

Clerics in the medieval Church did not have the luxury of literate pew-sitters. They, rather creatively, used the architecture, sculpture, and paintings in cathedrals to convey the biblical narrative to the unlettered faithful. Gothic architecture so arrests the modern eye not only for its structural and formalistic brilliance but also because the ornature itself narrates the story of salvation. The climate clerics have erected their own Biblia pauperum for the unwashed masses in San Francisco. One Atmosphere, an area non-profit, dedicated a mammoth mural yesterday of the teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg.

The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses -- and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process. The document dump was related to the committee's ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be "expanded" based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Additionally, the Ethics Committee acknowledged for the first time on Thursday an investigation into Florida Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings concerning a "personal relationship
What Happened to California Republicans? 10 replies

From 1967 to 2019, Republicans controlled the California governorship for 31 of 52 years. So why is there currently not a single statewide Republican officeholder? California also has a Democratic governor and Democratic supermajorities in both houses of the state legislature. Only seven of California's 53 congressional seats are held by Republicans. In 1994, then-Gov. Pete Wilson backed Proposition 187, which denied state social services to undocumented immigrants. The spin goes that it backfired, alienated the Hispanic community and thus marked the road to Republican perdition.

CNN’s National Affairs Correspondent, Joan Walsh, said she was “shocked” President Trump didn’t sexually assault the hero military dog visiting the White House on Monday. Walsh dedicated a whole Twitter thread to critiquing the body language of both Trump and First Lady Melania Trump as they welcomed Conan, the dog that took down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The president described Conan as the “the ultimate fighter” and awarded her a medal and a plaque for her role in the death al-Baghdadi. Naturally, Trump can’t give a heroic dog a medal without facing scrutiny from the mainstream media. Walsh described the scene as “terrifying” and wrote that

Next year’s Tokyo Summer Olympics may spell the swift death of the transgender movement as a dominant politically-correct touchstone.

That firestorm, pitting pro-women feminists against extreme pro-transgender progressives, will begin July 24th, just as the Presidential sweepstakes moves into its sprint to the finish line.

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”

The Democrats’ tireless effort to remove President Trump from office via impeachment will fail. That much, along with death and taxes, is certain. There is no longer a question as to whether the Democrats will lose in their quest to upend 2016, the only remaining unknowns are where, when, and how badly. And, of course, who is to take the blame? If the buzz around Washington is to be believed, it’s Adam Schiff. The Democrats have their choice as to where they will fail, which, in large part, can help determine the extent of the self-inflicted damage their party will ultimately suffer.
