We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right so to appropriate a dollar of the public money. — Congressman Davy Crockett

Chick-Fil-A in a Stew

“Guilty as charged,” was the statement recently made by Chick-Fil-A owner, Dan Cathy, when asked about his company’s support of traditional family values.

Cathy’s stance has ruffled more than a few feathers and the cuddly cow has now been stamped as one bad egg. The Leftist brood is squawking the usual cries of hate, bigotry, and homophobia.

A Bostonian mayor has now infamously stated that he won’t let the company nest anywhere near his city, so long as he reigns.

One “gay rights” group has hatched a mass “kiss-in” idea at local restaurants, in an apparent gay PDA showdown.It seems gay pride activists shouting typical accusations of homophobia (“You’re just chicken!”) is supposed to really show Cathy who rules the roost. (Note: Don’t mess with their pecking order.)

Like chickens with their heads cut off, the media is flapping about in an attempt to subdue and bully the only company willing to stick its neck out for faith and family values. Yes, walking on eggshells is the name of the game these days, what with Oreo creating the ever diverse rainbow cookie, it seems even food should be tolerant and diverse in social issues.

Unfortunately for liberals it looks as though Cathy won’t be chickening out anytime soon, further stating:

We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that,”

Rather than taking Cathy’s statement viewed as a personal set of values with overtones of gratitude, leftists are outraged, crying “Fowl!” It is possible that much to the chagrin those who support “diversity and tolerance” (wink) one projection is that sales will shoot through the hen-house with all of the publicity and free marketing. Funny, Chick-Fil-A has had plenty of chicks to count even without a sunrise on Sundays.

And seriously, who doesn’t want a chicken sandwich, waffle fries and a down-home sweet tea after a good hen-pecking?!

What has flown the coop is any rational idea of freedom of speech and freedom to practice religion of one’s choosing. It takes a bird brain to go on a vicious and personal counter attack to one merely civilly expressing his freedom of belief. When it comes to diversity and tolerance, many on the left proudly display the egg on their face. Give them a solid, Bible believing person of faith, they set up the ring and strut around like a banty rooster, waiting for the cock-fight to ensue. (Sorry, PETA.)

For now, it seems it’s sunny side up for the “Eat more chicken” folks at Chick-Fil-A.

When it comes to standing up for faith, family, and values, that truly is something to crow about….

    Nicely put, Jennifer. Loius Farrakhan spoke about his opposition to homosexual marriage in much stronger words than Mr. Cathy. Where are the sodomites protesting and demanding a retraction at the Nation of Islam rallies? Or protesting at Mosques all over the country? The truth is, it is Jesus Christ that they hate. They seek to silence Christians because they know that the word of God is light and they love the darkness. If their behavior were exposed to the light they would stand judged and condemned.

      You are so right, Dr. Theo! The Nation of Islam may disagree with gay marriage and say it loud and clear, but Christians better not even whisper such disagreement or the wrath of the “tolerant” shall be swift and merciless!

    • thisoldspouse

      I mentioned this in another forum; that this is purely a spiritual battle we’re witnessing, but most people don’t realize it. The enmity toward God and everything of God is palpable, but sodomites and their supporters would couch this in the concocted issue of “intolerance” and “civil rights.”

    • Orderinthequart

      Yes Dr. Theo, You are absolutely right. It is Christ they hate. The only comfort in that, I fear, is that He told us that if the world hated us, to remember they hated Him first…..

  • Carrie_K_Hutchens

    I really enjoyed the way you expressed your opinion! :-) *cackling chuckle* *LOL*

      Thanks Carrie :) If we don’t laugh as the sheer absurdity, I fear we may sob!

Convicted Murderer’s Execution Challenge Dismissed


South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that Judge Lawrence L. Piersol dismissed a constitutional challenge to South Dakota’s method of execution brought by death row inmate Donald Moeller.

Big Bird: A Symbol of the 2012 Election

Rick Manning

Perhaps those who believe that Big Bird, Elmo, Kermit and Miss Piggy need a taxpayer subsidy to help with early childhood education missed the “Tickle me Elmo” craze that generated millions of dollars, and they undoubtedly were unaware that Kermit and Miss Piggy went Hollywood a long time ago making millions in the process. Or, perhaps they haven’t flipped around to the hundreds of channels on their televisions and envisioned the bidding war to bring Big Bird to a privately funded station. As strange as it might seem, Big Bird just might be the perfect symbol for this election.


Should Government Ration Health Care?

Ken Connor

This year the U.S. is expected to spend $2.8 trillion on health care. The tab for Medicare alone will likely cost taxpayers $590 billion, with 25% of that sum going for patients in their last year of life. Given the anemic state of our economy and the huge strain on our medical resources, should government step in and decide how care is to be allocated among the sick and dying? Should Big Brother determine whose life is worth saving and whose is not by rationing health care?

Polo brothers in the court of Kubilai Khan. Khan gives them a tablet

That Men Might Know

William J. Federer

In 1271, Marco Polo left Venice with his father and uncle, and traveled 5,600 miles east to meet Kublai Khan, grandson of Ghengis Khan, who was Emperor of China, Korea, North India, Persia, Russia and Hungary. Emperor Kublai Khan had requested 100 Christian teachers, but only two preaching friars were sent by Pope Gregory X, and they turned back in fear while crossing an area being attacked by Turkish Muslims. Marco Polo was employed by Kublai Khan as an envoy for 24 years.


Taxes and the Economy: Games People Play

Robert Romano

“The average middle-class family with children would pay about $2,000 more. Now, that’s not my analysis; that’s the analysis of economists who have looked at this.” That was how Barack Obama described Mitt Romney’s tax plan to millions of potential voters at the Oct. 3 presidential debate. To be certain, as even the Tax Policy Center notes, Romney’s plan would lower everyone’s tax rate by 20 percent. So, where does the claim come from?

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended.

Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
