The Idiot Bowl -- Chick-Fil-A, Homosexuals, & The War on Capitalism

By now, the subject is no longer breaking news. It is a distracting point of debate the Marxist and Fascist demagogues are employing using useful idiots as pawns. That should also not be a surprise to those who pay attention to the world around them.

The president and CEO of Chik-Fil-A voiced the opinion that the company has held since its inception. Chik-Fil-A was founded by faithful Christians who follow their beliefs. The restaurants are closed on Sundays and Christian holidays. They also believe in the biblical tenets that state marriage is meant to be between a man and a woman for the purposes of creating life and raising children. Because of that belief, the company is facing some controversy.

While campaigning for various elected offices in the past, to include his 2008 campaign for President, Barack Obama stated several times he also held to that belief. Bill Clinton, while in office, supported and signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which also supported that belief. Yet certain demographics ignore those facts while taking aim at the more conservative-leaning and Christian-minded Chik-Fil-A.

Since making the statement, many so-called "gay rights" groups have taken aim at Chik-Fil-A, intending to boycott and impede the capitalist business of the company.

Chik-Fil-A has the right to have their religious beliefs. The CEO has a right to his religious beliefs. He has a right to run the company in accordance with those beliefs. That is the plain truth. They also have the right to publicly state those beliefs. It may have been a bit stupid of them to do so. However, it is still their right.

Gay people also have the right to state their disagreement with Chik-Fil-A. They have the right to take their business elsewhere if they do not want their money going to a company that demonstrates an opposing religious view. That is their right. Heck, they can even call for a boycott, as long as they don't impede, threaten, or otherwise infringe upon the rights of those who wish to patronize the restaurants.

I oppose Yum foods and Pepsico. I have since the 1990s when I discovered that both companies support so-called "charities" that are known to funnel funding to Islamic extremist groups such as CAIR, Al Q'aeda, and Ansar al-Sunna. I refuse to go to their restaurants. I refuse to purchase their products. I will not have them in my home. However, I do not tell others that they cannot patronize or purchase them if they choose. I also do not lobby my town, county, state, or nation to refuse to allow Yum or Pepsico to do business.

If cities such as Chicago, San Fransisco, and Philadelphia seek to ban fast food restaurants because of political disagreements and differing religious views, perhaps they should start by banning Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Taco Bell. If you want a political reason to ban capitalism, one would think banning those who fund the murderers that destroyed the World Trade Center and attacked our Pentagon would take precedence over their beef with Chik-Fil-A. After all, Islamic Extremists not only oppose same-sex marriage, they support stoning homosexuals to death as evil. Taco Bell and Pepsico give them money.

It is idiotic to oppose giving Pepsico and Yum business licenses. Let them have their businesses. 

Chik-Fil-A doesn't pay people who attack our country and seek to murder homosexuals. Pizza Hut and Mountain Dew do. However, the useful idiots don't bother to look at facts or reality. Instead they go to Rahm Emanuel and ask him to not issue business licenses to Chik-Fil-A. This is even more idiotic than denying licenses to Yum and Pepsico.

These sanctuary cities, all of which are known to not enforce federal immigration laws, issue licenses to business owners who are illegal immigrants, support illegal immigrants, hire illegal immigrants, and funnel funding to enemies of our great republic. However, they want to ban a chain of restaurants because they stupidly stated publicly they have certain religious views.

The reason for the bans is simple. The CEO and many board members of Chik-Fil-A support conservatism and capitalism. If they were to open stores in Chicago, they would be supplying non-union employment opportunities. They would bring more numbers to the tax-base thus increasing overall revenue from income, payroll, property, sales, and capital gains taxes. Socialists cannot have that. They want to oppose capitalism. They want to tax only those who earn a living so they can give to the lazy who refuse to do so. They want to buy votes. So, to gain the votes of homosexuals, they ban the "evil gay-hating capitalists" in order to appeal to one small demographic, offering them special "rights" and "entitlements". In reaction, the idiots will follow blindly.

Yes, you are idiots. You are allowing yourselves to be used as political pawns by people making false promises to grant you special "rights". By falling for the stupidity, you are setting the "gay rights" movement back by 30 or 40 years. If you want those "equal rights", you should support Chik-Fil-A in being issued those licenses. Then, support your own individual right to not purchase their products. 

If you don't like Chik-Fil-A's religious views, don't eat there! However, don't be stupid enough to infringe on their natural right to open a business. It is that simple. then again, so are the idiots who oppose free-market capitalism while supporting Fascism. Denying Chik-Fil-A the right to run a business because they don't fall in lock-step with your political agenda is fascism.  

In the meantime, I won't be going to Chik-Fil-A with my homosexual friends. I won't be going to Yum's restaurants. You will not see Pepsi products in my home. Then again, I usually go to In and Out for my fast-food fix every couple of months. I also rarely drink carbonated soft-drinks. When I do, I stick to Sprite or Jones' Sodas.
