The fact that there is no evidence that Chick-fil-A discriminates in its business practices did not deter Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank from writing that Dan Cathy’s support of traditional marriage “…implied that gay people (not to mention divorced people) had no business eating at Chick-fil-A.”
Star Parker’s article is a pretty good summary of the attacks Dan Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-A, has had to endure because he is a follower of Christ. She notes the blatant hypocrisy of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she spoke in Alexandria, Egypt:
…to us, real democracy means that every citizen has the right to live, work, and worship as they choose, whether they are man or woman, Muslim or Christian, or from any other background.
Nobody was there to ask her, however, about the attacks and threats directed to Dan Cathy’s company.
Parker also noted Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s discriminatory attack, saying “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago’s values.” Just what those “Chicago values” actually are Emanuel failed to say, but one can guess: thuggery, oppression, fraud, deceit—all those things that go for making great politicians in Chicago.
Washington Post soiled itself, thanks to the ridiculous comments by one of its writers, Dana Milbank, who said that Dan Cathy’s support of traditional marriage “…implied that gay people (not to mention divorced people) had no business eating at Chick-fil-A.” Where that injudicious comment came from is anybody’s guess. But nothing close to reality, that’s for sure.
The one point Parker didn’t mention is Dan Cathy’s position as founder of Chick-fil-A and reluctant defender of the faith. Did Dan Cathy seek this role? Was he out looking to poke his stick into the eye of the atheists controlling the lamestream media? No. All he did was respond, in the Baptist Press for Heaven’s sake, to a question about his company’s values:
We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit…
which was enough to set off the PC army into its furious attacks.
But sometimes we are called upon, reluctantly, to take up His cause even though we did not seek it.
