Chick-fil-A protest: 'Enough is enough'
Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was not an anomaly -- it was a line drawn in the sand. Although there are likely a number of reasons why Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was so successful, I'd like to offer my hypothesis.
A LGBT group called Equality Illinois reportedly was orchestrating a Chick-fil-A hate campaign that included petitions calling for the eviction of Chick-fil-A restaurants from malls and campuses. These punitive intimidation tactics are typical and representative of the mean-spirited LGBT Legitimacy movement.
Many LGBT advocacy groups have long embraced a strategy of using derogatory labels like, "homophobia," "hate," or "bigoted" to describe opponents. Some have sued Christian business owners, e.g., a bed and breakfast in Illinois and a wedding photographer in California, both of whom were trying to run their businesses according to Christian principles.
LGBT groups have gained powerful allies in the liberal-media and have succeeded to a large degree in silencing their critics via political correctness doctrine, now guiding government actions to further suppress dissenters, as exemplified by Mayor Emanuel's and Alderman Moreno's comments.
Recently, a pastor in Florida who preached on homosexuality and the Bible was fighting expulsion from the public school building where the church had been meeting because he preached the Bible as it is written.
Some have asked how gay marriage will affect traditional marriage. The real issue is whether it's in the country's best interest to dismantle the First Amendment, America's-core-defining ideal, in favor of the LGBT Legitimacy movement? Doing so will radically reshape society and its institutions. Catholic Charities and other Christian adoption agencies have already ceased activities in Illinois and Massachusetts.
The masses spoke out across the nation on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day through one of the channels left open to them and they said, "Enough is enough."
